Finding the Best Accommodations

Your accommodation is your home away from home when you're traveling. It's important to find the best place to stay for your trip so you're comfortable, can sleep well, and have a place to relax after long days of exploring.

What is your budget? This is a great place to start as you don't want to spend your entire trip's budget on a hotel. Are there any services or amenities you will need, like parking?

It's like an art, being able to search through the plethora of hotels, Airbnbs, hostels, and Vrbos, and finding the holy grail that matches your budget and your needs.

So how do you find the best accommodation for travel? Let's start here!
