The second way the Hubs and I were able to save was by picking the right hotel. We had to find a place that offered all of the amenities of home(we will be there for 4 days and 3 nights), and it had to be at the right price.
After many days of searching through list upon list of hotels and hours of price comparison we stumbled upon Homewood Suites in Carlsbad Ca.

I am very excited to be staying with them. They offer tons of amenities that are perfect for any family! Our room includes a bedroom with a king size bed. Separate living area with a sleeper sofa. A full kitchen(that will be put to great use), complimentary hot breakfast buffet, and a light welcome home meal(and drinks)! Sounds fantastic, right?
Our entire stay with Homewood Suites came out to just under $600
I think it is an incredible price considering we all received two free meals per day! The money we were able to save by not having to go out to breakfast and dinner everyday gave us the option to stay in a nicer hotel.
So we got to save on food and splurge on our hotel room.
