End of Summer 2-Night Getaway **GIVEAWAY**


Can you believe Summer break is already half way over?! It's time to start booking those end of Summer travel plans and getting in those last few weekend trips with the family. I've shared my experience and love for weekend getaways, and how much I enjoy giving away getaways to my readers! Now that Summer is underway, it's time for another 2-night stay giveaway. Who doesn't love to get out of town for a couple days?? Where would you go? 


Country Inn & Suites has locations across the US and Canada that are suitable for any type of traveler/vacationer. Now that I'm living in the Mid-West, I'm looking local for my family weekend getaways. Sure, I could go into Chicago, but that's just a bit too close for me. Recently, I've looked into visiting Minnesota. And the Country Inn & Suites by Carlson, Minneapolis West is just the place for me! Newly renovated, this hotel has everything I'm looking for in a hotel for my family. Plus, it's decor is amazing, modern and clean. I'm talking a complete revamp of this place that makes my body tingle with excitement. 

Country Inn & Suites by Carlson, Minneapolis West offers a homey, modern feeling, while still providing the highest quality of amenities, such as free high-speed Internet, fitness center, indoor swimming pool, complimentary cookies, huge breakfast, and lending library, among other things. And to be honest, the outdoor firepit area is what caught my eye - spending Summer evenings, relaxing with my family under the stars and talking around the fire is one of my favorite passtimes. 


More about the brand that makes me keep going back, no matter where I'm living: Country Inns & Suites By CarlsonSM is a leading upper midscale hotel brand with over 470 hotels in the United States, Canada, India and Latin America. The brand’s Be Our Guest service philosophy encourages employees to serve guests with the same kind and caring spirit given to friends when they are being hosted at home. I don't know about you, but when I'm staying in a hotel, whether for 2-nights or 2-weeks, I have pretty high expectations for how my family and I are treated. With the brand's Be Our Guest service philosophy, I've always been treated well and never had a problem with customer service. That's a huge deal for me when booking an overnight stay somewhere. 



Now for the GIVEAWAY!!! It's pretty Simple... you're entering for a two-night stay at any Country Inn & Suites location in the US & Canada!! There are 2 ways to enter, each worth 1 point! *you only need to do one to enter, but if you do both, the better your odds! *giveaway closes on 8/1/16
  1. Visit Country Inn & Suites by Carlson and check out all their locations! After, leave me a comment of where you would want to stay if you were to win! 
  2. Tweet this ----> "Giveaway for a FREE two-night stay at any Country Inns & Suites in US or CA. Check out details now http://goo.gl/Y78uJ8 #ad #countryinns" then leave me the link in the comments.

So that's it! Best of luck and happy Summer vacationing!!
