We decided to hit summer hard! After a day of seeing the sites in Glen Rose, TX, the next week we set off on a long road trip. It took me a good four days to prepare for the trip. You wouldn’t think it would be so difficult, but packing for seven people and having everything ready is a lot of work!
Part of the planning included purchasing hotels. We normally purchase our hotels through Priceline.com as we tend to get much better rates than purchasing individually through the hotels. We name our own price and don’t know which hotel we will get until it’s a done deal. This has worked so great for us and we have rarely had bad experiences. The one time it didn’t work out was because we had booked a hotel close the the hospital of a family member and before we could get there they moved her to a different hotel in a different city. We weren’t too concerned about it as we had only paid $25 for the room. Really! You can get great deals!
It’s always fun to see what hotel we end up getting. Imagine our surprise when we found out that the hotel were staying at, Sleep Inn & Suites in Liberty, Missouri, had a waterpark! My first thought was, “Oh no, we’ll never make it there in time for the kids to take advantage of it!” as we were headed to northern Minnesota for my niece’s wedding and were very pressed for time.
Well, Jason crunched the hours and figured out how to get there in time. We had exactly one hour for the kids to play before the waterpark closed. They had so much fun and went to sleep without any trouble after an hour of playing in the water.
The Waterpark is included in your stay at the hotel. There are no additional fees or passes required. We thought this was awesome! We didn’t pay any more than we normally would have and enjoyed added fun for the kids
The kids had so much fun! After a long nine hours in the van, it was just what they needed to exhaust some energy and be ready for bed. They all wanted to play again the next day, but we had no extra time. The complimentary breakfast was another great perk!
If you’re looking for a place to stay near Liberty, Missouri we recommend Sleep Inn & Suites!
