Travels with Children

The adventures I embark upon with my four young children.

Accommodations for Larger Families

Finding a room that will accommodate a family of six is no small task.  Here are some places where we’ve had good stays.  Once in a while I can book a room for six over the Internet, but at other times I’ve been allowed to reserve a room by calling the hotel directly even if the website set a maximum of four or five people per room.

Country Inn and Suites:  We’ve stayed at a few, most recently in Cedar Falls, Iowa, where we had a huge room with two beds and a sofabed.  Excellent free breakfast; a nice place to stay.  Country Inn Cedar Falls

Hampton Inn:  One of the chains where we’ve had good luck finding an affordable two-room suite.

Americinn:  I can usually book an online room for the six of us at Americinn.  Rooms are not huge, but spacious enough.  Breakfasts are good.

Homewood Suites:  Although billed as extended-stay lodging, we had a beautiful room for two nights in Sioux Falls, SD.  (Two bedrooms and two baths, with free breakfast and an evening offering that was ample for our supper.)

Best Western:  I had to call directly, but was told that six people were fine in a room at the Ramkota in Sioux Falls, SD.

Holiday Inn:  In Rhinelander, WI, we got a nice two-room suite at a fair price.

This is good info. Some Super 8’s (Windom MN) are good. The baby ramada in SIoux Falls Had two beds and a pull-out–very affordable for 6 of us. The two-bed/hideabed combo seems to be the easiest to find, and works great for our brood, especially if continental breakfast is involved.
