If you’re like me, before you book your vacation, you’re searching multiple sites for the best deals and ways to save on your hotel, flight and tickets. It’s a pain to search around, researching how to save, when to stay to save and how long to stay to save, but luckily for you, I’ve got the Innside scoop on how to get the best deals with ‘Tween Waters Inn. I’ll let you in on the secret…

Book direct. You can shop around for deals on Hotels.com or Expedia.com, but after speaking to the reservations manager at ‘Tween Waters Inn, I’ve discovered that booking direct will get you the best deal — here’s why.

Hotels have to pay a pretty hefty percentage to those “OTA’s” like Priceline, TripAdvisor, Hotels.com, Expedia and Orbitz, so they’d rather you book directly with them because that means all of your booking goes to the hotel and not any third-party sources. Therefore, they’re willing to offer you a lower rate, just so that they can cut out the middleman.

And now, ‘Tween Waters Inn and many other hotels are willing to reward you for booking direct too. With ‘Tween Waters Inn, they’ll not only cut your rates but they’re also removing any resort fees when you book direct.

Want to save even more? I’ve found that while booking online can be a nice streamlined and easy process, calling the friendly reservations staff at ‘Tween Waters Inn can save you money. Their reservationists know how to combine deals or grab the lowest rates using package rates for multiple nights, which often include dining credits as well. Plus, the reservations department at the resort tells me that they don’t place all of their inventory online — meaning there may be more options available for you when you call. You can reach reservations at 800-223-5865 x 1.

Lastly, you’ll want to stay for three days or more — and who wouldn’t want to stay in paradise a little longer? When you do, you receive a multi-night discount, and you’ll nab their current “Stay 3, Get Another Free” offer plus $100-value resort coupon book.

So the bottom line on saving your bottom line: Book direct. Call. Stay longer.
