Is staying in a rental home a better value than staying in a hotel?

A typical hotel room in central Florida can cost between $39 to $150 per night. Hotel rooms at Walt Disney world can cost $300 per night or more. For $39 to $300 per night you get only a room with a pair of queen beds, and a living space that is about 20 feet by 20 feet.

Also, keep in mind that some hotels charge a low fee for one person per room, but charge $10-$20 for each additional person in each room.

If there are more than 4 people in your group, you’ll have to rent two rooms, doubling your cost to stay in a hotel, and you’ll still only have four beds, and two 400 square foot rooms.

You can rent a house for as little as $99 in non-peak season. You’ll get three or four bedrooms, a living area, a kitchen and a private pool. You’ll generally have six times as much space to spread out and a home can generally accommodate eight to twelve guests, depending on the size of the home.

Houses give you more room to spread out and can save you money by allowing you to avoid eating at expensive restaurants. Once you’ve tried staying at a rental home instead of a hotel you’ll never want to stay in a hotel, again.
