The best family vacations are when you get more for less. Hotels sometimes offer a free night’s stay when you book two or three nights, which can be the ultimate in getting more for less on a family vacation. If you are looking to visit a theme park or the beach or want to go kayaking on a lake or shopping on Rodeo, here are a few hotels that offer a free night stay.
