When it comes to traveling, either inside the country or abroad you have various holiday accommodation options that can make even the pickiest person comfortable. Depending on your needs, you can choose one or another type of travel accommodation. For example if you have a dog or any other type of medium to large pet you might not be able to get a room at hotel or even some inns. Again if you want to live in luxury, then maybe going to a motel is not what you want to go with.
Finding the perfect place for you is not easy, however, it is not that hard either. First thing, you need to do is find a location, next set the comfort level you need, add various conditions. This will identify the type of lodging you can go with, then particularities come into play, like quality of services and such.
Types of accommodations
Resorts – this type of accommodation is massive and gathering more and more popularity, especially for people who want to go somewhere and relax and not necessarily do sightseeing. These resorts are usually in exotic places and rather far from cities. Some might even allow pets and most of them allow children.
Hotels – hotels are the most popular accommodation type as they can be found both in cities and in travel destination places. It’s easier to choose a good hotel since they have various ranking systems. All hotels allow children and most might even take in pets, however few will let them in the rooms. Services vary from hotel to hotel and it’s better to call and confirm before booking rooms.
Guesthouses and Inns – these act like small, intimate hotels and are usually just a few rooms, less than 10, in a house. These houses are usually managed by the owners so it is easier to get away with some things like pets and children. Services can include meal plans, internet and tour guides for the surrounding area.
Hostels – these are somewhat like guesthouses, however they are much cheaper. This type of accommodation usually does not include any services and does not allow kids and pets. Hostels offer the option of sleeping in a room with other people in order to bring costs down. This is a budgeting option.
Camping – this does not refer only to off-beat places anymore where you didn’t have any other option. Nowadays there are many camping sites managed just like hotels and such. One thing you need to keep an eye when going camping is the availability of power plugs and toilets/showers.
