How to Choose the Right Hotel for Your Family Vacation, Onalaska, Wisconsin

When you're planning a trip with the family, you want to book a hotel that will fit your needs and your budget. This process can be more complicated than it first appears, but the following steps will help you narrow down your choices. With some advanced planning and information about the hotels in the region you’re traveling to, you can choose the right lodgings for your family vacation.

How to Select the Right Hotel for Your Needs & Budget

Choose a Price Range

HotelThe first step is to decide how much you can afford to spend on accommodations. Will you need multiple rooms? If so, include that in your calculations. Once you've determined how much you can spend, you can eliminate hotels outside of your price range.

Choose a Location

The next step is to select a location. Presumably, you have a city or region in mind, but are there attractions in the area you'd prefer to be close to? Consult a map to pinpoint these attractions and narrow down your preferred location. If there are multiple points of interest in the area, look for hotels centered among them.

Choose What Amenities You Need

When you have a price range and a general location, decide what amenities are important to you and your family. Do you want a pool? If so, is an outdoor pool satisfactory or would you prefer one located indoors? Are you counting on a free breakfast, or do you plan to dine elsewhere? Do you want to access to in-room Wi-Fi? Consider everything of importance when choosing a hotel to ensure you and your family are comfortable during your stay.

Decide if You Need 24-Hour Reception

What time will you be arriving? Some hotels staff their reception desks all night, while others have limited hours for check-in. Determine whether your arrival time will complicate your ability to check into the room.
