When traveling, my DW and I would stay at a budget motel. $50 was our budget for a room, $18 for breakfast & $30 for dinner. Last year for the College World Series, we waited til the last minute to go. Not 1 room was available at a budget hotel. We chose Candlewood Suites. It advertised a full kitchen, table top electric burners, microwave, refrigerator, etc. They also advertised Pet Friendly. That meant we could could take Cat, our adopted cat. The kitchen was all they said PLUS the fridge
was full size. $90 bucks for the room We went to Wal-Mart & bought real, healthful food to fix.. Breakfast cost $6, dinner cost $12. Total? $108. Cheap was $98 & we sometimes ate way too heavy. Families could save enough to actually SAVE $$$! Our bonus? We are staying at a real classy place.
