4-Night Hotel Stay Giveaway

When you're frugal and you're planning a vacation, it's easy to just go with the cheapest hotel possible, in order to save money. But if that hotel ends up being unclean or unfit, you'll end up having a miserable time. The essence of frugality is getting the best deal with your money, not necessarily the cheapest.

If you'd love to go on vacation but can't afford it, or if you just want a free vacation, enter below to win a 4-night stay at Country Inns & Suites. Please leave me a comment letting me know you've entered!


Fall is the perfect time to get away- great weather, not too hot or buggy, the beautiful fall foliage, and fall foods are some of my personal favorites. I love long weekends this time of year, and highly recommend grabbing the spouse and kids, hitting the road, and finding an interesting destination.

One thing you never want to worry about when you travel, is the sort of hotel you will wind up staying in. It can be hard to book online- so many places "fluff" the reviews by having friends and family members post positive ones, and people generally only post ratings on hotels if they loved it or truly hated it. Sometimes I read them and am amazed at the crazy things people will write about.

It can sometimes be simpler to stick with a hotel brand that you know, like Country Inn and Suites. I would venture to say that no matter where you plan to stay, there will be a location nearby (even out of the USA, they have quite a presence). More then once, I have ended up in a hotel that was pretty "rough", had beds that looked like they had never been deep-
cleaned, or where the soles of our feet turned black with the grime from the room's carpeting. I can honestly say I have never been disappointed in a stay with Country Inn and Suites. Great breakfasts, and many of the hotels even offer free cookies, drinks, and popcorn in the evening.

One of you can win the chance to do some free fall traveling on your own- win 4 free nights at a Country Inn and Suites of your choice. Please see below to win, and for rules and entry options. Good luck!

1- Each free night voucher is valid for one free night, standard room, double occupancy at any North American Country Inns and Suites of the winner’s choice. The voucher expires one year after the issue date. The full terms and conditions are located on the room night voucher.

2- Entrants need to reside in the US or Canada and must be at least 18 years old.

This is a part of Country Inn and Suites Free Night Fall promotion, where you can have an opportunity to win an additional free night in their giveaway. Details and official rules can be found here.

I would love to go have a weekend away with my love just about ANYWHERE as long as it meant we didn't have a kid hanging with us too! :) I'd love to spend a weekend in Chicago though taking in the sites!

I would like to take my Mom to Grand Forks, ND. We're from Canada and we love to go shopping in Grand Forks, ND. She usually treats me, so I would love to repay the favor and treat her in return!

We are taking a road trip in March from Florida to Oklahoma, thren to Vancouver, Kelowna, Alberta so we could certainly use a free hotel room along the way.

Dallas. We just moved within driving distance and I'd love to take my family.

West Virginia or any surounding state.

Bronwyn McLellan November 20, 2012 at 11:22 PM  

Either Boston, or Seattle, or Vancouver (Canada), or closer to home... Houston

Caffeinated Momma November 23, 2012 at 9:29 PM  

Honestly I'd go just about anywhere if it meant going somewhere alone with my husband! We have two kids and no babysitter, so alone time does not happen often!!

ironsbrat November 24, 2012 at 8:19 PM  

I have a one year old so I would use it to have a date weekend with his father
