Staying at a hotel is really expensive. Have you ever pulled up to a hotel only to find out that valet parking was some sort of obscene amount, like $59 a night? That’s just to park the car, I hate to see what they will charge for wi-fi access.
We shouldn’t have to stop going on vacation to be smart financially. We just need to figure out how to stay at hotels for less, what things we can save some dough on and the things there are ok to splurge on.
Everyone has their favorite splurge at a hotel, but mine really is either a nice cocktail out by the pool or dessert room service style. Everything else, I’m a “save the dough” kind of girl. Hotel breakfast is notoriously overpriced, and forget about that $15 charge for semi-decent wi-fi. Head over to a local coffee shop, and use their wi-fi for a while. I mean, you are on vacation, you shouldn’t need wi-fi anyway.
