I have always been a fan of the simple things in life. Even the smallest item or gesture can make a big difference, often leaving a positive and rewarding impact. One of my simple pleasures is staying in a motel.
My husband travels for work so staying in motels is not nearly as enjoyable for him, but the kids and I absolutely love getting away and getting to spend a night or two in a motel. For me it is a mini vacation - away from home, no worries, no mess to clean up, no fuss. For the kids, it is a chance to stay up late while watching tv, swimming in the indoor pool and jumping on the beds. Yes... we let them jump on the beds when we stay in a motel - another one of those simple pleasures!
Whether we are staying at Hotel California, a motel in Miami, or a country bed and breakfast... I am going to make the most out of my time even if only for a night.
What is your favorite thing while staying in a motel?
