There are many intriguing short and mid term rental options out there these days. Hotels and resorts tend to have an exponential amount of onsite amenities which can be great for some people. The only issue in this model is that a guest may be intrigued by a given room and perhaps the location but may not require 90% of the amenities that are already cost factored into their room rate. Thus the guests end up paying more for less. Alternatively, there are seemingly a never ending growing list of vacation rental spaces on the market but a vast majority simply offer the guest the bare essentials and with little to no human interaction with the management or onsite staff.
