I always like to choose a Hotel or Motel that offers a FREE Continental Breakfast when I travel. Not only do I get to eat a great big breakfast with all the many fun choices typically at these hotels, but I can also grab a banana or apple + a muffin to eat for lunch later. This can save the cost of two meals, which can add up especially if you are traveling with your family.
Some of my favorites have been Hampton Inn, Holiday Inn, and if I can find a great deal Embassy Suites has the best breakfast out there – including made to order omelettes and pancakes.
As for the freebie shampoos…
I need to tell you a little bit about my Dad (whom I love dearly). My Dad is a hotel product hoarder! Last year I went on a trip with him and this guy is so funny. He has little hair yet he insists on taking all the little freebie shampoos + products everyday and dumping them into his bag so the maids have to add a new one to the room every morning. I am like, “Dad…what do you do with all those little shampoos?” And he says..”I save them for when I go camping. ”
In his defense though, he is a really really good man. Very giving – I saw him once take his continental breakfast to go and hand it to a homeless man as he walked to his business meeting, figuring the homeless man could use it more than him.
So what are your thoughts? Any stories or ideas to share? Are you a hotel shampoo hoarder?
