We are visiting the Island from Thursday, October 9-Friday, October 10, 2014. We'd like to stay on the island at a Bed and Breakfast, and it was recommended to us that we show up without reservations and try to get last-minute deals that afternoon by either calling the Bed and Breakfast or showing up and asking about availability. This makes us nervous, but we are adventurous and love the idea of saving money.
Is this plan likely to work? Does anyone have any experience doing this? Will there be mid-week last-minute availability? And, anyone recommend a Bed and Breakfast (or hotel) that could work with this plan???
