Ok i need some advice. We will be traveling to Pensacola, Fl. in July b/c my son's baseball team has qualified for Nationals. We live in Texas. We were looking at options for lodging. We thought about renting a house, not on the beach, just in the area for that week. Or condo, so we could cook and keep the cost down. BUT here is the problem.... every where i have looked online, there are so much hidden cost, huge taxes, cleaning fee, booking fee and if there are more than 2 people they charge you $15/person/night. Some some places sound ok, then you look at the fine print and see it isn't that great of a deal. Prices are subject to change on some, before arrival. I need to find someone that has a connection there, where i can be advised of a truly good deal. We are a family of 5 so we really have to watch our money.
Please let me know if you know anyone that has home rental/weekly in the area. thanks so much-Lori

Have you checked VRBO.com? We have rented from there before and didn't find any hidden or extravagant fees... Your trip sounds EXCITING! Congrats to your son! Hope you have a great time!!!

I have to agree, try VRBO. We have used them in several states to find reasonable places to stay.
