Breaking up our trip into 4 days was a GREAT idea. It was so nice to be able to rest and relax and get a decent night sleep before the next day’s journey. And the kids didn’t seem to reach that *point* when you know you’ve simply been in the car TOO long. Which, after 3 weeks without any breaks, was a welcome relief!
Our last hotel stay was in Great Falls at the Holiday Inn. I have stayed in several Holiday Inn’s and have honestly been happy every time. It’s always fun to try something new, but I also (particularly from this trip) see the value in the tried and true places….the Hotels that you will never go wrong staying in. The Holiday Inn is just that kind of hotel – no matter where I am, if I see a Holiday Inn I know I can trust in having a great stay and a good sleep.
The rooms were roomy, clean, and nice. We felt at home, though were totally bummed we didn’t get to take advantage of the fun pool and waterslide. Next time we are trying it out for sure!
