Skip the room with a view to save money.

At less expensive properties an ocean-view room may mean a difference in price of only $10–$20 per room; at luxury resorts on pricey islands, however, it could amount to as much as $100 per room. If you’re the active type who really uses a room only to sleep, then you can save a bundle by choosing a garden-, mountain-, or town-view room. Smaller hotels and guesthouses or those that are a short walk from the beach offer very pleasant accommodations that are priced considerably lower than their larger, beachfront neighbors.
