Hit the Beach at the Hotel Del with a Buy-Two-Get-One-Free Room Offer
The iconic on-the-water Hotel del Coronado isn't a recession-friendly hotel. But us suckers just might pony up the nearly $300-a-night fee if the hotel throws some freebies in. Plus, its gorgeous beach is a draw; it's usually voted one of the best in the United States.
Buy two nights at the famed hotel, the setting for the Marilyn Monroe flick Some Like It Hot, and you'll get an evening free. Rooms hover around $283 a night for the package.
If you want a longer vacation to lay out on the hotel's beautiful beaches, the Hotel Del is also running a buy-three, get-two-free deal. That means you'd get five nights for the price of three. But you'd have to arrive on either a Sunday or Monday to be eligible.
Both deals are available through June 30. Now try to squeeze together a few bucks to get a bathing suit.
