Arnold Meadowmont Lodge Review

I am not a huge camper, but I do believe when you stay in the mountains that the more it feels like a cabin or has a mountain feel the better. I enjoy soaking in the mountain air in a place that feels like it belongs in the mountains. So when we recently stayed at The Arnold Meadowmont Lodge, it was perfect! From the outside it looks like a typical mountain motel, but once inside you will find a warm inviting room with a cabin feel.

Pier South: So Much More Than Your Average Beach Hotel

When our family recently headed to San Diego I knew I wanted a different hotel experience, something that embodied the San Diego spirit. I found that and so much more in the amazing hotel; Pier South. When you first pull up it looks like an unassuming beach hotel. Once inside you realize this isn’t your “run of the mill beach hotel”. Instead, this is quite possibly the best beach hotel I have ever stayed in.

Our family loves Best Western’s; I don’t think that’s much of a secret or surprise. What is a surprise especially to us is how different each of them can be. You expect chains to be “cookie-cutter”, but with Best Western, you are dealing with different owners making their hotel a fantastic place for you! There is not another shining example like this than with the Best Western Dry Creek Inn.

When traveling with kids through the beautiful Sonoma Valley, you need to stay somewhere close to soak it all in. You also need somewhere that feels like home, I found that with The Best Western Sonoma Valley Inn. In the heart of Sonoma sits this fantastic hotel with so much to offer families, solo travelers and even the lucky business travelers passing through.  Apart from the super spacious rooms (that even have a fireplace), you can count on a hot breakfast, fabulous pool, free laundry facilities, warm inviting communal spaces, and more!

Marlin Apartments: Your Home Away From Home In London

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Planning a trip to London can be both exciting and completely overwhelming. Where do you go? What will you see? But more importantly, where will you stay? The most obvious choice might be to find a hotel near attractions; you might be surprised to find out, though; that it isn’t your only option.

We travel to new places to see attractions, meet interesting people, and have experiences that haven’t been done before. When staying at a hotel, you really only meet other guests that are just like you. I believe living like a local gives you a real view of the city you are in and everything it holds for you. My recent stay with Marlin Apartments in London gave me the ultimate experience of local life, food, and culture.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
