    While traveling, my favorite places to stay are hostels, inns, guesthouses and simple hotels. I don't want to break the bank on a room when I won't be spending much time there. I am not saying that I don't like fancy hotels but to me they are just not worth the money.

    I like that these kind of properties are often in prime locations offering affordable and fair prices. The rooms are pretty basic but we always take private rooms, not shared dorms. I also feel that when I ask for info like where to eat, the staff is usually pretty honest and won't just point us to the hotel restaurant.


    For our first time traveling with our baby Lucas, Kim and I initially considered staying in a resort style hotel. Since we were using our Capital One points to pay for the trip, we thought it would be a good time to splurge a little. About a month in advance we started looking online and making calls. Many of the places in our price range were sold out for the dates needed. We even considered staying at the island's most popular all-inclusive (they had babysitters available!) but we couldn't justify spending what we would normally pay for a week's stay, on just one night (we also didn't really think we'd actually be able to leave Lucas with a stranger.)
    After we looked online some more, Kim came across an apartment hotel called Pirate's Inn.
    I immediately said let's do it. With that kind of name, it's got to be awesome! All joking aside, the inn was reasonably priced (around $117 per night), was in a good location, had air conditioning, a pool and was available.
    We decided to go ahead and book the room feeling good about what we had found.
