Hotel Rooms for Visiting Guests

Are you hosting a family gathering during the upcoming holiday season? Perhaps, you don’t have enough space in your home for all of your visiting, out-of-town family members to stay. If you can relate to this scenario, consider renting hotel rooms for some of your loved ones to stay in during the holidays. Before booking rooms, talk with your family members in order to assess their needs. For example, you might need to rent a room containing two queen beds and a baby bed for a young family. Or, you may need to secure a handicap accessible room for an older relative. Booking a hotel that offers a complimentary continental breakfast is a good idea. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of renting hotel rooms for visiting family members this holiday season. Enjoy!

Recommendations to Help You Choose a Temporary Housing Rental


When you are planning a move, your housing needs may vary based on your situation and your timeline. Sometimes you only need temporary rental housing if you are relocating temporarily for work, you are moving and have not purchased your new home yet, or you are moving to a completely new area and want to evaluate the city first before you choose a permanent place to live. No matter the reasons for your need for temporary housing, here are some tips to help you find a great housing rental for your upcoming move.

Consider Your Options

There are a lot of options today in terms of temporary housing, based on the timeframe in which you will live there and your personal situation. There are fully furnished residential vacation rentals that you can look at for a temporary housing option, just as long as the landlord has the property open and available to you for the period of time you need it. Verify this first as they may have it rented out to other guests for a few days at a time during the time you need the housing.

As another option, you can consider a corporate housing option, where you rent a fully furnished unit on a month-to-month basis. You can sometimes find corporate housing with an apartment community or in a hotel suite. These options are great because you don't have to move any furniture, dishes, or appliances because they are already part of the rental. 

Verify the Property Details

When you are searching for a temporary housing rental, you should also verify the details of the rental before you sign the contract. Find out how long the rental or lease agreement is for, and if it will provide you housing through the period you will need it. If you are not sure of your timeframe, a monthly rental that renews each month is ideal. 

Check into the inclusions with the temporary rental to find out what is included with the rent. For example, are all utilities included with rent, such as electricity, water, gas, and WiFi internet? Also, look at the apartment inclusions, such as all the furniture, bedding, linens, wall decor, and a full kitchen with utensils, dishes, pots, pans, and other cooking implements to make sure they come with the unit. You should find out exactly what is included so you can be sure to bring items that are not.
