It is PCSing season! While, some people hate it, I actually love it! Okay maybe I don’t enjoy the packing up all of our belongings and unpacking, but I love the traveling aspect! We aren’t PCSing as I speak however, there is a chance that it could still happen very soon. I’m not a veteran military spouse and I’ve only PCS’d one time, and that is when we made our move from Utah to Chicagoland. Luckily, the military made the process less stressful.
Another way to make the PCSing process less stress is having a travel plan before moving. Some families choose to fly to their new destinations and some choose to drive. We always choose to drive. For us it’s a lot less stressful with 2 little kids in tow. We are able to stop and take rest, and the kids can sleep comfortably in the car.
Apart of having a travel plan is knowing where to stay along the way. It’s best to know when and where you are going to stay along the way. It’s best to check out hotels that are military friendly. Recently, me and my family got the pleasure of staying at Extended Stay America Hotel. The great thing about Extended Stay Hotels are that they are very military friendly. They are always at or below per diem and with PCS, and they have national discounts in place just for military families at all 600+ hotels! We will definitely make Extended Stay apart of our traveling plans next time we PCS or do a staycation.
Each room has a full size fridge, stove and a sink. This is great for military families who are PCSing because instead of wasting money on take out you can go grocery shopping and cook in your hotel room. They also have a laundry facility, Wi-Fi, and grab-and-go breakfast. It feels like home away from home. I feel all of these amenities make PCSing a lot easier. Especially, the laundry facility. The rooms are very clean and the customer service was great! They made us feel so welcome.
How cute is this little basket they left for the kids?
I had to hurry up and snap pictures of the beds before the kids went crazy. We had to hold them back while I took this picture. Once I snapped the pictures we let me loose like eager baby tigers! LOL.
Honey Bee and Bumble Had so much fun playing in the shower!
The grab and go breakfast station. Me and my husband agreed, this was the best coffee we had in awhile.
Our weekend at Extended Stay America was nothing short of awesome. Extended Stay America made our stay so special and my family appreciates them for accommodating us. Honey Bee and Bumble had so much fun! And me and my husband got to relax, and have a mini staycation. We will definitely will be using Extended Stay America during our next PCS.
