Getting A Deal At A Maine Motel....Why Pay The Price They Quote On The Phone?

    maine varsity hockey players,blackhawks

If you owned a motel or hotel, your mission is to keep the rooms rented and producing income flow. 

Guests also help support the restaurant or bar that may be in your establishment. And as a community, the more conventions, sports tournaments and events that can cause the need for a room is the goal. It should be the desire of every local business that benefits from these new tourism dollars that will turn over six times in their hometown. The news reports indicate motels and hotels are not full and traveling is off. Translation is owner should be flexible and more anxious to rent empty rooms. Over the weekend, my son's hockey team did two away games with a night's motel stay in between.  While in the lobby on a lap top after check out before game two, I found I had a two hour delay. So ker-plop I go on the lobby sofa to kill some time catching up on email with the wireless connection while the team that had late check out watched game tapes.  Phone in the lobby rings and $99.95 indicated as  the quoted rate for a room.  A fellow from a local railroad wanders in and asks if he could get the rate that the railroad has as a corporate discount. The clerk says sure, $59 dollars.  Then phone rings by a member of a motel discount club that they pay an upfront yearly fee to to qualify for lower rates. The front desk clerk  quotes the caller $72. Parents of the team members paid $60 and some of us used Priceline and other discount room finder services and paid anywhere from $55 and up. Saving money on a motel in Maine or anywhere. Check the free room saver booklets at the tourist information centers too for coupons and special discount deals. Overall, the catch is to not wait until the night before to suddenly decide you need a room and expect a andrew mooers, mooers realty, houlton maine real estatedeal. It's your money and you need to do your home work, ask some questions, and take some notes. What has been your experience on getting a deal on a motel/hotel room?

I hear airlines are starting to have price wars too! The benefit of a poor economy, I guess.

If you have some money saved, these are the best of times to buy a car, take a cruise...refinance or buy that home.  If you lost your job, have no savings, and are sitting back thinking the governement is going to fix everything throwing billions and billions creating deeper debt load for the country ....that is not a movie with a happy ending Karen.
