We know a thing or two about traveling with the kids. We’ve been traveling 300 days a year for more than four years.

And we’ve tried every conceivable type of accommodation: state park cabins, vacation rental homes, deluxe RVs, apartment swaps and luxury cruise ships. Even a boathouse.

And still staying at a hotel is our last choice.

Well okay, it’s right after camping on the roadside but just before sleeping in our car.

Unless of course it’s one of those multi-bedroom extended-stay suites. With a full kitchen.

For us it usually comes down to a hotel’s lack of food preparation options but there’s a few other things that make staying at a hotel scary for parents.

That had us wondering what other people thought about hotels that cater to families.

What’s your experience staying in hotels with the family been like?

And do you agree that a hotel is no place for a family?
