Standard view rates

Why does the day of my departure back home change my hotel price so dramatically? Originally I was leaving to come home on a Sunday for my vacation next April. Do to a family wedding we know have to come home two days earlier on a Friday.
Every hotel I look at only has standard views available for the entire stay if I check out Sunday. When I switch to checkout two days earlier the price goes up by at least a 100 a night because they only have pool or higher value rooms

Worth calling on that. Seems glitchy.

Just called. Apparently it’s due to it being spring break and prime times to go. The advice was to book it for the more days to lock in the rate and then down the road modify your trip dates.

Seems strange but if that works I’ll do it!
