Are You Ready For a Retreat?

I was so glad the girls and I had a chance to stay at and review the Country Inns & Suites 1, 2, Freee! promotion earlier this month. Even though we didn't travel far it was nice to get away and take a break from everyday life for three nights.

I know with the economy many families are putting vacations on the back burner, but with special promotions like the 1, 2, Freee! program you don't have to skip out on the family fun. Even if you opt to stay at a location close to you, by getting the third night FREE you have extra money for some local entertainment or gas money for your road trip.

One of the features we loved the best was the indoor pool. Our neighborhood does not have a pool and even if it did, it will be months before it is open. With the indoor pool the girls didn't have to worry about the frigid outdoor temperatures and could just hang out and have fun.

We also enjoyed the breakfast that is included with your stay at Country Inns & Suites. That can be a real budget breaker when on vacation and you have to eat out all the time costing anywhere from $4 per person on up. We all had full, hearty breakfasts each morning at no additional cost. And when we did go out for lunch or dinner we could bring leftovers back to the room and put them in the fridge and warm them up in the microwave that is included in all the rooms.

Country Inns & Suites also has a goldpoints plus program where you can earn more FREE nights. Be sure to take advantage of the 1, 2, Freee! promotion by May 15th to get your third night free.
