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.
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.
