Hotel Discount Coupon Magazines/Roomsaver.com

Jump to last reply

Has anyone succesfully used and had a hotel honor a coupon from one of those Exit Guides/Hotel Discount Magazines you get at chain restaurants like Denny's along interstates and various other tourist places. They also have a website called roomsaver.com. The key words in the coupons are "based on availability" and "subject to availability." Do the hotels really have rooms available at the discounted rate or is this just a come on? I can probably think of a thousand excuses a well trained desk clerk could say as to why he/she won't honor the rate, but is that always the case?
I am going to Orlando in April and want to stay in the northern suburbs of the city. Do you all think I should make reservations in advance sight unseen and secure a AAA rate or should I just "wing it" and walk in to various motels in the area that don't look full and "haggle" with the clerk for a good deal? Does this walk in and negotiating approach give u a better rate than making an advanced reservation with a 10-20% AAA discount. Would be interesting to hear from former desk clerks and hotel property managers to obtain some inside tips:-))
