    Default What is your preference?

    Last night DH and I began planning next years travels/vacations. We plan on going to visit a couple friends as well as inviting friends to come here. Our discussion turned to where we would like to stay, in a hotel or at the friends home. Personally, I prefer to stay at hotels, I sleep better and also have severe cat allergies so it is just more comfortable to do this. We don't want to offend friends by suggesting this and we would definitely welcome the friends to stay at our home but want them to feel comfortable also. So, what would your preference be?

    We try to stay at hotels when we visit friends. Due to our life choices (nudists) it is just easier. With family we bite the bullet, keep our clothes on, and stay with them unless there just isn't any room.
    We don't have a guest bedroom so we use our motorhome. We pull it down to the city park and they have all the utilities. Since town is small they are only about three minutes away.

    I kind of prefer to stay in MY home, as traveling these days stresses me more than I can handle. Hauling an oxy concentrator and nebulizer wears me out.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    For the most part I would prefer to stay at a hotel.

    I prefer a hotel as well.
    When guests come here it's to a hotel. We have no guest room.

    I'm a poor sleeper so it's much better for everyone if I stay in a hotel.

    Other than my MIL's and Melinda's, I'd rather stay in a hotel.

    When I'm not home I live out of a suitcase ... in a hotel. My folks would always stay in hotels too. When we had overnight company mom would always thoroughly clean the house, plan meals, plan tours of Chicago, and then go do laundry for the bed linens after they left. She never wanted to put anyone else through that ...

    Its a lot of work to have overnight company. Because we live so rurally, it would be our only choice to put up family and friends. Nearest hotel would be 40 miles. However, I'm generally not very comfortable staying in friends homes. I do stay in my childens homes but always feel a little imposing

    I don't know. I'm just content to stay home. I don't like to travel. And I snore. I like having guests stay in my home though as long as they don't stay too long. Three days is long enough!
