August 23rd – Accomodations

While we were celebrating at son Dan’s this weekend, we arranged to stay at a Microtel by Wyndham hotel in the small city near their acreage.

I usually do fairly good at arranging for accomodations on our travels, and as usual I did not disappoint. 👍

The hotel I chose has been recently renovated. Everything was new and fresh. With parking and a typical buffet breakfast included, our room was quite economical. This hotel allowed pets, so we were able to bring Kat along to enjoy our time away. They do charge an extra twenty dollars a night for dogs, but obviously so worth it.

There was only one downside to this hotel that had Dan and I a little concerned. It is situated on the eastern edge of the city. Son Dan lives a few miles west of the city. 🙄 However, we soon discovered that even that worked perfectly for us, as the entire west end of the city was tied up with road construction and there was a perfect and paved shortcut that ran from our hotel straight to son Dan’s acreage. It could not have been more convenient!

Large enough television and desk/counter area.
Comfortable sitting area with a convenient kitchenette.
Relaxing color scheme and decor.
The queen size bed was comfortable.
Kat even had her own built in bed. (She chose to sleep with us 😒)

The washroom was small, but adequate. I prefer to have a bathtub, but the shower was roomy and had a rain showerhead that even I found comfortable.

The room included all the extra touches like a blow-drier in the washroom and an ironing board and iron. It had wifi of course. The hotel amenities included a pool, hot tub, and exercise room that seemed quite well appointed. There was also the breakfast buffet area and a small bar that served appetizer type foods, plus barbecues and a patio area behind the hotel.

I would definitely recommend this chain to anyone looking to stay at a decent hotel. We enjoyed our stay. We were easily grateful for comfort and cleanliness of the place and the gracious and accommodating staff. 🤗

It is time to get a few things done around here now. We have more than a few tomatoes in our fridge to deal with and no doubt plenty more out in the garden to pick. Kat is also getting pretty low in cooked food so should get a batch whipped up for her.

Wishing all a nice day! Take care and I hope to see you tomorrow. 💞

Road Trip In Saskatchewan

My husband and I do not travel very far or very often, but now and then we just decide to get away for a day or two.

I am not a fan of the trip itself, but we enjoy a specific little hospitality chain that has nice hotels in Saskatchewan and Alberta.   If you ever get the chance to check them out, D3H Homesuites are clean, economical, the staff are welcoming, the complementary breakfast is good, they have a pool and hot tub and a small workout room.

We always get the jacuzzi suite with a king bed bedroom, jacuzzi, fireplace, sitting area with nice desk area and bar fridge.

Sometimes all it takes is a day or two, without a care in the world to come home recharged, ready for anything – even a Saskatchewan winter.
