Did you know that if you stay in a hotel for three months or more, you don’t have to pay hotel tax?

I only learned this recently, when my husband and I reached the 90-day mark of living in a hotel. If you’re thinking, “That sounds like an awfully long time to stay in a hotel room,” you’re correct. We didn’t exactly plan on being hotel dwellers for a fourth of a year, but home renovations always take longer than you expect. Knowing what we know now, we might choose a different place to rest our temporarily homeless heads.

If you’ve ever looked for a short-term housing option, you know that it can be a bit tricky. Is it worth it to move all of your furniture into an apartment for three months? Do any apartments even offer a three-month lease? Can you find fully furnished options that don’t cost an arm and a leg? It can be overwhelming, and you might not know where to start.

For those looking for a place to call home for any length of time in the one-week to three-month range, consider the options below.
