Red Roof Inn Is Making Your Summer Travels Cheaper

I'm a fan of Red Roof Inn. Their hotels are convenient and super comfortable. It helps that they are pretty affordable too, and now they're making your summer even cheaper with low rates and a special summer promotion called Red Hot Stubs. 

You're going to do things when you travel, otherwise, why go anywhere, right? Red Roof Inn knows this and they want to reward you for being an awesome traveler and contributing to the local economy. Now through August 31st, you can get 10% off your stay when you show them a ticket stub from a local event or attraction (ticket can be an e-stub on your phone or a physical ticket, but it must be dated between July 1, 2018 and August 31, 2018 and presented at check-in).

Who doesn't want to save money on one of the biggest expenditures on their trip? As a budget traveler, I very much enjoy any promotion where I can save even a little, but 10% off your hotel is pretty significant...and it means you can do even more! Obviously, the peeps are Red Roof Inn are budget travelers at heart, just like you and me:  

"At Red Roof, we know travelers covet summer vacations and are working on a budget as they take time to enjoy and experience events and attractions with friends and family across the country," says Marina MacDonald, Chief Marketing Officer, Red Roof. "With this in mind, we're making it easy for guests to save more with the launch of our Red Hot Stubs: Ticket to Summer Savings promotion, giving travelers the opportunity to stretch budgets farther by honoring ticket stubs to local events and attractions in exchange for a 10 percent discount."

You can choose from participating Red Roofs in select cities:


See all the sights in the Iron City by jumping aboard the Hop-On, Hop-Off Bus, explore the Carnegie museums, see amazing birds at the National Aviary, or even take the kids to play and learn with hands-on exhibits at the Children's Museum.


The Emerald City is full of things to keep you occupied for a long weekend or longer. Visit the Space Needle to see a 360-degree view of the city, hit up the Museum of Pop Culture when you can check out rotating exhibits of your favorite movies, television shows and bands, or take an afternoon to stroll their fantastic zoo.


It's not all about the Bean here, but you can certainly visit it. I'd suggest a view from the top on Chicago's Skydeck, which has a glass floor and tilt-out windows. There's also the Mob & Crime Bus Tour, and a lunch cruise around Lake Michigan. Those are all things I'd have on my list.


In a city so full of history, there's something to do around every corner. Just a few that you might want to fill your time with are a trip to the New England Aquarium, a ride on the original, world-famous duck boat tour, or even take the Old Town Trolley Tour of Boston. If you like a little more fun with your history, learn about the Boston Tea Party with the Interactive Ships & Museum Interactive Tour where you can throw tea overboard one of two replica ships.

Washington, DC

A trip to D.C. can be quite eventful and affordable, if you know what you're doing, but between the free museums and landmarks, don't forget some of the more unique activities. I'm talking about The International Spy Museum, the Newseum and seeing all the presidents in wax at Madame Tussaud's. 


I'm currently planning my visit to Philly and I probably have more things on my list than I can possibly get to, buy some of the coolest things I want to get to are Eastern State Penitentiary, the abandoned prison with self-guided tours, the Mütter Museum where I can view all sorts of medical oddities, and Independence Hall, where I can see the Liberty Bell.


It's not called Charm City for no reason. Baltimore is great for families, couples and solos. Explore the weird at Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Odditorium, stuff your face with goodness on Fell's Point Food Tour, or go see an Orioles game at Camden Yards.


It often gets a bad rap, but Detroit is full of history and delicious food. Not only that, but you can take the kids to SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium or LEGOLAND Discovery Center, see the Rosa Parks bus, JFK's limo and more at Henry Ford Museum, or take in a show at the grand, Asian-inspired Fox Theatre.


The capital of North Carolina has a lot going for it, including plenty of awesome stuff for tourists (and locals hoping for a great staycation). Explore 5,000 years of art at the North Carolina Museum of Art, learn about local floral, fauna, geology and more at North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, wander the Queen Anne architecture of the North Carolina Executive Mansion, or even take a ride on the historic Pullen Park Carousel that features 52-hand-carved animals.

These are just a few of the ways to make your summer spectacular. There's still plenty of time left this month to fit in a getaway. You can book your room now by visiting RedRoof.com or calling 800.RED.ROOF.

Where will you be going on your last-minute summer trips?
