A Taco Bell-themed hotel in California sold out in minutes and fans will have to hope for another chance to experience the limited-time vacation getaway.

The Bell: A Taco Bell Hotel and Resort, located in Palm Springs, California, sold out in just 2 minutes after opening at 10 a.m. Pacific time Thursday, reported The Desert Sun.

Taco Bell took over the V Palm Springs hotel and converted 70 rooms into a Taco Bell-inspired vacation destination. The themed hotel is only happening for four nights from Aug. 8-12 with room rates starting at $169 per night. The hotel is not for kids, though, fans must be 18 years old and over to experience the experience.

The company said that everything from guest rooms to breakfast and poolside cocktails will be infused with a Taco Bell twist. Photos on the promotional site included shots of rooms with giant Taco Bell logos on walls and hot sauce packet-shaped pillows on beds.

“Taco Bell fans are truly one of a kind, and today was one of the best expressions of that fandom yet,” Taco Bell Global Chief Brand Officer Marisa Thalberg said to the Sun about how quickly the rooms sold out.
