For vacation this year, we decided to head to Cheyenne, Wyoming and take in some of the history and nature there. My son and I researched hotels and came across a Days Inn that offered exactly what we were looking for…
A reasonably priced Family Suite!
So many we had researched only offered a connecting room and it was always double the price of a single room. So, if one room was $90, putting up my entire family was going to end up costing $180. That is NOT reasonable in my budget-minded opinion.
However, this Days Inn Suite boasted 2 sets of bunk beds, a hideaway couch, a King bed and room to move all for less than $130. Couple that with a military discount or other discount and you have a super deal!
The suite consisted of one HUGE room with a King bed, a couch that makes into a bed, 2 chairs, a dresser, TV, and refrigerator and another bedroom area attached with 2 sets of bunks, a dresser and a TV. (There was another suite that we considered that was set up with 2 Queen beds and 1 set of bunks, but the idea of 2 sets of bunk beds won out.)
The oldest 4 slept in the extra bedroom and the two younger children slept in the main room with us. It was no trouble finding a place for the playpen where Garin sleeps and Micah slept on the pull out couch like a king!
A wonderful hot breakfast was included in the price of the room (which saves a ton of money, but you should have seen their faces when we hit the dining room!) There was a nice pool, laundry facility, and great customer service.
And, we had the cutest bell hop ever!
The only 2 things I would have changed is adding another bathroom to the suite (there was only 1, but thankfully, there were two sinks – one in the bathroom and one in the main room) and more washers and dryers in the laundry area. We had to do laundry and ended up doing it all night long one night because the railroad workers who were staying there had taken up the one washer and one dryer available during the daytime hours.
And for those of you with pets, the hotel was pet friendly. We saw a lot of dogs while we there.
We were so impressed with our stay there and will definitely continue to look for Days Inn (and hopefully more family suites) from now on.
