If you travel much you must have noticed that some hotels charge those detestable mandatory "resort fees" that are mentioned only in the very fine print of the room booking charge. It is hard not to feel annoyed with such surprise hotel charges as $20 for wireless access or $5 for bottled water. But found some hotels that still provide free amenities to guests. And not only budget friendly hotels are inclined to give you free wireless access, bottled water and breakfasts, but also some luxury hotels do offer some freebies. And even though you probably have paid pretty much for that room with a gorgeous ocean view it's still nice to know that you get something for free. And while some hotels just offer complimentary bottled water, others are rather creative and generous with their free amenities. But if you really want to get the most of your money consider checking Coupon Codes to find great deals on hotel accommodation around the country and abroad.
