beach shot.JPGBlack Friday and Cyber Monday are good for more than buying electronics, clothes and toys at a discount. Hotels are offering deals for future travel on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. These deals are good for one day only (as noted in the terms of each sale). I've divided up the deals by Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and the organized the hotels by region (east coast, west coast, Caribbean and nationwide).

My advice: be spontaneous! Some of these hotels are offering more than 50% off the nightly rate, including hotels in the Caribbean (a perfect escape for the cold winter months).

Sit back, read carefully, then get packing!
