picking hotel for PMV on stx
single 48 male planing to make pmv end of april- first of may. wondering which hotels to stay away from if any. need just a room and place to make simple meals. in southwest florida now and loves the outdoors. thanks
My personal opinion is that staying at a hotel just subliminally keeps you from seeing this island thru the eyes of a resident. You tend to get a false image of island life. If you can find a room to rent from someone that would be best.
Too many people come down to do a PMV and find that it wasn't what they thought after they get here. Go figure. Living at a hotel, eating out every night, hanging on the boardwalk every evening. That isn't what living here is. Not for most.
Again, this is just my opinion.
I would suggest Cottages by the Sea. Not expensive and each room has a full kitchen so you can shop and cook your own meals. It's on the west end so you'll be exposed to the "real" STX. Paul and his staff at Cottages are the greatest. They'll help you get acclimated to island life.
