Midweek. Never been, just want to explore a while, swim and chill. Unfortunately low on funds but will be in the area and looking for the best plan for someone alone who is basically winging it. Thinking I will get off the ferry and make a few inquiries about rooms. I don't mind sharing a bath, would be camping if I could. Any and all replies greatly appreciated! Thank You!

Well the first question is when are you going? The deals and availabilty start getting much better after Labor Day, where you can get a room at say the National Hotel for something like $104.00. Anything sooner, even mid week, might be more expensive.

The second week in August. Is it very busy there then? Should I have a reservation? Seems like The National Hotel gets mentioned here a lot. Thank You!

Well the National is well known, in a prime location just off the dock, and has a great veranda for outdoor eatting.

But there are other places up and down the main street there, though I think most people expect one to make a reservation as opposed to simply walking in and asking for a room. But the choice is yours. You can also call or visit the Visitor's Center on the Island, 800-383-2474, and they can tell you what might be available for a single night the day you arrive if you have difficuly finding a room.
