Stay Budget Savvy with Extended Stay America

When deciding on your spring vacation, stay budget savvy with Extended Stay America. When staying at your typical hotel, food and drinks can really start to add up. Plus, you have the added stress of finding somewhere to eat in an unfamiliar place. While exploring is key to vacation, take some of the stress out with your own kitchen.

Extended Stay America has over 600 hotels across the United States and each one comes with a fully equipped kitchen. Complete with stove, microwave, and full-size refrigerator, you'll be able to whip something up from the comfort of your hotel room. Whether you prefer to go local for breakfast or dinner, make a quick grocery run and stock up on your home favorites for your other meals.

Speaking of eating out locally, if you're like most people, you find a delicious restaurant, order something amazing and just can't finish it. Usually when staying at a hotel you forfeit the tasty leftovers; unless you can cram them into the mini bar. With Extended Stay America, you can bring them back with plenty of space in the fridge. Then later that evening, throw on a comfy robe and enjoy your dish again while relaxing in bed. Hey, why not, you're on vacation!

If the idea of buying groceries and cooking sounds even more stressful, I promise you'll think differently once you try it with Extended Stay America. Eating homecooked meals has never been so easy while traveling!

So, forget those overpriced "luxury" hotels when you're booking and opt for true luxuries with Extended Stay America. We've also included a delicious recipe to get your planning started!

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Prepare penne according to package directions for al dente (just firm). Two to three minutes before penne is ready, add broccoli. Finish cooking, drain, and set aside.

2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add oil. Sauté the garlic for 1 to 2 minutes, or until aromatic and beginning to color.

3. Add pasta, broccoli, and lemon zest and cook until coated with sauce. Season generously with salt and pepper. Cut up the rotisserie chicken into strips and place on top of pasta. Transfer to serving bowl and top with cheese.

  1. I have never visited Extended Stay America but I like the rooms have a kitchen it them. It really gets expensive eating out the whole time you are out of town. We always bring the coffee pot, snacks and things you can microwave but this would be better!
