Hi Stephanie. You need to make your decision of what is fair by determining if you really need to discount to secure the booking.

We never discount and charge the same price regardless of length of stay. Sometimes we do miss out on large bookings over a number of weeks however I see it as a great advantage to showcase our motel to the people who normally stay at the other local motel. Often they return to us on their next visit and also by gaining the overflow of guests not getting a room at the other motel, we get the business and payment on arrival instead of waiting 1, 2 or 3 months for an account to be paid by the long term guests.

To be honest, my opinion is that discounting rooms creates busy fools. Just my opinion and sure others have different views and I wish you all the best on what ever decision you make.
