Journey To California With Residence Inn by Marriott – $250 Gift Card Giveaway #RIMom #DodgeJourneyToCalifornia

I’m really excited about this new partnership with Residence Inn by Marriott. As a brand ambassador for the company our family has a unique chance to take a vacation! That said we’ve teamed up with Residence Inn and Dodge for a two week family vacation to southern California.

First on our trip we’ll be staying with my parents and then it’s onto the fun. A night in San Diego enjoying Sea World and Legoland. 5 nights in Manhattan Beach where we will be visiting Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm and possibly Universal Studios and then a day exploring LA. Then we head for two nights exploring San Fransisco with the kids and then back home to Oregon. We’ll be staying at all Residence Inn by Marriott locations across the way.

What we really like about Residence Inn by Marriott are the one bedroom suites with full kitchens. I think having a kitchen and a comfortable place for us to be while on vacation makes it easier for our family of 5 to travel. Plus the prices are unbeatable and start at just 109.00 a night! I think we scored a night or two even cheaper than that! Plus the rooms are beautifully updated and have new features that our family is used to.

It’s quality for a great price that works with our family’s budget! It’s the perfect place for our family to get away to because they make it comfortable for us. Being able to have a kitchen while we travel is so important but we also get a FREE breakfast with every nights stay. That free breakfast will come in handy before our long days at amusement parks. For the blogger like me I also get free internet every night!

I can’t wait to continue to share my Residence Inn by Marriott journey with you and once we arrive I’ll be showing off all f the wonderful amenities.


To start our your holiday travel plans this year I have one $250  Marriott gift card to give away!
