Florida hotel deals including The Keys, Miami, Palm Beach

Hawks Cay Resort is located halfway between Key Largo and Key West on small, secluded Duck Key.

With rental cars so expensive and airplane travel so stressful, consider a driving vacation in your own car. You can find a prime location within a few hours’ drive or, if that’s too far, in the next town over.

And lucky you, deals for Florida residents abound.

One caveat: Specials are subject to change and may have other restrictions like black-out days or advance registration requirements. Deals may be “subject to availability,” and others are non-refundable.

Check the hotel’s website for the latest info and whenever possible book your room through the hotel. Don’t be shy but do be friendly and polite. Ask if there’s any other way you can save a few dollars.

Don’t even think about bundling: Almost every deal has language that says, “Cannot be combined with any other offer.” Also, read the fine print or you may find nasty surprise charges at checkout. Ask about those charges at check-in, and you might convince someone to waive them.

The bottom line: Ask questions and be sure to confirm everything.
