  • According to my November issue of Reader's Digest: go to www.hotels.com and then also use codes found at www.currentcodes.com and www.keycode.com

  • i like priceline.com I have only used it for a hotel but i stayed at a 3 star hotel for less than a hundred bucks. If you are getting a hotel usually they ask for a deposit but priceline gets them to knock it off

  • I agree with renting a vacation condo! That way you get plenty of space, plus a full kitchen so that you can store food and prepare meals instead of eating out constantly. We take several trips a year and we used to get hotel rooms, but we have since bought into a vacation club. Now that we use condos everywhere we go, we would never want to use a hotel again. But you don't have to buy into a vacation club, I can recommend a timeshare rental website. If you are interested, message me and I will give you the website. (cause I have to look it up to make sure I get it right, lol).
