    Cool Shopping for a hotel room

    Tell me everything and anything about shopping for a hotel room and how to get the best rates and best deal. I want to know what to look for, what to ask for, and where to look. I'm looking for advice from anyone who travels frequently such as salesman and legendary bards or just anyone who has stayed at a hotel. Please, can anyone help me out?

    Thank you. That is another web site to add to the list. What I want to know more about those types of web sites is what and why to use which site(s).

    Hotels.com


    Use their listing to call the hotel itself and see if you can get them to beat that price.

    I am not picky, so clean sheets and a decent rate is all I look for. That said, I do give repeat business to hotels that go out of their way to make me happy. Oftentimes a manager is able to negotiate a rate if you are good at haggling. My sister used to work for a hotel and used her skills to talk a $150 room down to $100.

    I don't want to click that link because I want to believe your favourite magazine is called 'Woman's day' and so I don't want to possibly shatter my illusions by clicking on it and finding out I'm wrong.

    Location location location. If the local populace are 2 cent hookers, then you ain't gonna have a good night. Try looking for some $5 hookers. They are more entertaining.

    I wish I had made this thread before I had picked a room. I checked my bank statement and the hotel charged me for $300+ for checking in for the weekend. I checked in this morning (Saturday at 2 AM) and I'm leaving tomorrow at 11 AM. I was told that the going weekend rate was $111 per night. I am about to go down there to check my bill to see what I'm paying for.

    Also, depending on where you go, check out lodging if there is a military installation nearby. Other places like Hawaii and Disney World have military resorts. The Hale Koa in Hawaii is supposedly five-star rated and I found I could get a room for as little as $50 a night a few years ago.

    I would like to know what they charged you for.

    Post the following:

    "I'm (vital stats here including cawk size), and I'm going to be staying in location for x days. I need a place to crash, and in exchange I'm willing to sex acts here; bottoming or topping should be one of them. Bareback is fine with me. I don't care how old you are or what you look like, but pls just have a place near location where you're willing to put me up for x days."

    Some places give discounts if you are a AAA member. Something you might want to look into as well.

    Awesome, something I might actually have experience with. So yeah, the internet is probably the best way to go because they show you plenty of deals right there. However, once you book it via priceline or whatever, CALL THE HOTEL and double check because there are plenty of screw ups.

    Other then that, just call the hotel and ask for their rates. If you don't like it, ask if they have a rate book of all the other local hotels. Most of the time the front desk clerks can give you the rate and occupancy of every hotel in town and it's a real time saver from calling each individual hotel.

    Hope that helped!

    Military resort on base is $28 a night and it is luxurious and well accomodated. The Airbase across the bay is as nice but $58 which is a relatively good rate versus commercial resorts.
