    Default on the calendar

    Would you rewrite the following in bold more easily? It's confusing.

    The rooms are typically booked two to three months out on the calendar, six days a week.

    Thank you.

    I don't know what it's trying to say.

    Rooms are available 6 days a week? Which day is not available?

    Or: People can make reservations 6 days a week? Like, "Don't bother to call on Fridays, but you can make reservations on any other day for a stay on any day"?

    The person who takes the reservation is supposed to enter it in the calendar?

    Rooms are usually booked two to three months in advance. This part would mean that if you don't have your reservation in 8 weeks before you want the room, you probably won't get it.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    To me it's saying that, from a quick look at the calendar, if you want to book a room for a certain date in the next 2 to 3 months, you have a one in seven chance of finding it available.
