High short-term rental rates

I am in the process of trying to secure a condo rental for the next three to six months.

The rates are unbelievable.

I thought, perhaps, some of the local motels or hotels would offer long-stay winter rates at a discounted rate, this is not so. There are only a handful of properties that offer this option.

You would think that after a disastrous tourist season the hotels would want to fill their properties to help make up some of the lost revenue. No chance. They will offer a slightly lesser rate but they are still price gouging.

We are certainly not going to have a huge rush of visitors this winter. It doesn't seem like good business sense to me to have empty rooms for four months instead of getting a reasonable amount of income.
