Ask For the Senior Rate

I recently found a way to save money at a motel. At least at a motel in the Marriott chain.

We stopped at a Fairfield Inn and I asked the receptionist for the rate. Regular rate was $139. AAA and AARP rate was $132. I happy with any of the prices but the weather was lousy and we really wanted to quit for the night.

I went outside to talk with my husband and I then went back in and asked 'Is that really the best you can do?".

The desk clerk asked me if I was a 'senior'. Since I over 60, I said 'Yes'. She could give me the 'senior rate' of $118!!

Now I know.... In the future, I'll be sure to ask for a 'senior rate'.
