Cheap or expensive is relative to the reason you came. The cost is relative.
- If you are driving from Michigan to Florida and you need a place to sleep from 11pm to 7am, Whitestone is expensive.
- Maybe you and your spouse have struggled in your relationship and your marriage is shaky. If you came and spent a romantic weekend to recommit and reconnect, then Whitestone is really inexpensive.
Your view of cost is relative to your purpose for coming. There are less expensive (and more expensive) places to sleep. A couple was here recently for the weekend before she was having major surgery (cancer) on Tuesday. She said, “Whitestone really is a sanctuary for the soul.” She and her husband used their time to prepare themselves for the ordeal. (The surgery was successful and their story has a happy ending.)
Many guests come to celebrate special days – anniversaries, birthdays, retirement, vow renewals, “gotcha days” (the day they adopted their child), etc. A special day that marks a milestone really needs a special place.
If you just need a place to sleep, we’re expensive (rooms start at $165 including breakfast).
If you rekindle the romance in your marriage, we’re cheap!
Maybe pricing should be based on why you are coming!
