I used to rent hotel rooms quite often while I traveled, but once I discovered that you could rent people’s residences while they were away, I ditched the hotel rooms and began renting residences all to myself! There are various reasons why renting a residence is better than renting a hotel room, but there are some downsides to it as well… For instance, when the central a/c machine isn’t working in the middle of the warm season, it is no longer as nice.
When you actually get to a hotel room where the central a/c machine isn’t working, the only thing that you have to do is ask the receptionist for a totally different room with a properly working a/c.
However, when you rent a residence with a broken central a/c, then the only thing that you can do is get a refund and find a hotel room. It’s either that or you can learn to deal with the broken a/c machine and be entirely miserable for your entire getaway. I was so bummed when I stepped into this awesome residence and found that the central a/c machine was broken. It was hot, and I didn’t want to go through the hassle of applying for a refund and finding a hotel room. I called the owner of the residence, and they called an HVAC company. I had to deal with the warm residence for nearly a week before the HVAC company was able to repair the central a/c machine. Happily, I spent most of my time away from the residence. They should check the a/c machines before somebody rents the locale.
