The reason why this web site is so awesome is
that you can go into the lodgings section and all the information you need to make an informed choice to stay is there.
I've looked at most of the hotels and they all state what they require as far as deposits, taxes and service charges as well as policies on cancelations. The places I have contacted thru email have all been very helpful and very nice.
If you ask in advance about special prices during paticular times, I feel sure they would advise you.
