*CLOSED!* Enter to win a 2-night stay at Adrift Hotel (Long Beach, Washington), $250 value!

Adrift-Hotel-Stay-Giveaway

Update – Thanks to everyone entered this giveaway! The winner was selected August 15, 2014. See winner information here.

I’m thrilled to announce a very generous giveaway for Adrift Hotel in Long Beach, Washington. We LOVE this place! In fact, we just had the pleasure of going for two-nights this month and I couldn’t wait to tell you all about it.

Adrift-Hotel-Review-Long-Beach-Washington

Adrift Hotel and Spa is located right on the beach in Long Beach, Washington – about a two-hour drive from Olympia, Washington. It’s our go-to place every time we want to escape to the beach. The rates are affordable, the rooms comfortable and the customer service top-notch. They are incredibly pet-friendly if you like to travel with your four-legged friends, but they also have pet-free rooms available as well.

Adrift-Hotel-Lobby

Adrift Hotel is very urban, chic and minimalist – which I adore. Most all of the design, furniture and decor is made with reclaimed wood and supplies. The lobby is probably one of my favorite hotel lobbies ever.

Adrift-Hotel-Lobby-July-2014

Think pallets and mason jars. It’s minimalist design but still comfortable and hip.

Lobby-Adrift-Hotel-longbeach

The lobby has a great mini-store with snacks, wine, beer and local treats.

Adrift-Hotel-Cold-water-lobby

And complimentary coffee and delicious water – which I love. It’s the little things like this, I think, that make you feel like you’re on vacation. They even have a dog bowl in the lobby, if you’re bringing your pets. There are no coffee pots in the room, but they have fresh-brewed coffee in the lobby that is locally roasted and delicious!

Adrift-Hotel-Free-beach-cruisers-in-lobby

They have a line-up of complimentary beach cruisers for guests to use.

Rooms

Adrift-Hotel-room-review

The Adrift Hotel has two buildings – the main building (West Building) with the lobby, restaurant, etc. and then an East Building with additional rooms. We have stayed in both buildings before and enjoyed them both. This last time we stayed in the East Building and I loved the decor in our room (see photo above). It had “Embrace Family” painted on the wall, simple photography, clean lines and the room was tidy and comfortable.  You can see photos of all Adrift rooms here.

We stayed in a room with two queen beds – which works great when we travel with the kids.

Enter for a chance to win $1,000 VISA gift card #TravelOnUs

Airplane-Travel

Expedia #TravelOnUs Giveaway

If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time you know that travel is one of my absolute top passions. As a family, we make an effort to scrimp in other areas so that we can budget more for travel – and we love to hit the road or take to the air – at any chance we can get. One of my all time favorite sites to check for travel deals is Expedia.

Expedia been around for a long time – I remember using them back in college to find the cheapest airfares home! With the Expedia headquarters in Bellevue Washington, I love that they are a local Northwest company!

But I think the biggest reasons I’ve always gravitated to Expedia for travel deals is I think they have one of the easiest websites to navigate. I appreciate that when I use I’m not bombarded with a bunch of crazy ads, pop-ups or spammy offers. It’s real deals, with competitive prices and I can sort and filter based on my top priorities.

Roosevelt-Hotel

For example, if I’m looking for hotel in Seattle for a weekend away with my husband – I can search Expedia by hotel rating, price, near points of interest (close to the Space Needle or Pikes Place Market!), neighborhood and more. You can view in a list format or browse with a birds eye view via interactive map. It also includes comprehensive guest ratings and reviews – so I can get real feedback about the hotels from people who have stayed recently.

Expedia-Scratch-Pad

Another feature I love about Expedia is the Scratch Pad - available in the top right corner of the site, this saves your recent searches and the deals you’ve viewed! This is super helpful as you hop around trying to find the best bargains – you can hop back to your favorites without searching for them again.

It’s one-stop shopping for travel deals – with everything I’d need in one place!

Update – Thank you to everyone who entered the giveaway! The winner was selected July 20 at 10 p.m. PST.

Stay tuned! We’ll have more great giveaways this fall.

********************************************************

I am so excited to announce the new giveaway for a $300 Great Wolf Lodge gift card! Queen Bee Coupons recently passed 80,000 “likes” on Facebook and I’m in constant gratitude for this community – you are so generous by sharing my FB posts, commenting, posting deals you’re finding, and helping others who have questions! I have the best readers – I truly believe it.

So to celebrate YOU, I’m giving away a $300 Great Wolf Lodge gift card. It’s valid at ANY Great Wolf Lodge location, nationwide. Basic rooms range from $200 – $300 before discount codes, so I’m hoping this should get you a FREE night stay (or more if you go off-season!)

If you’ve been following my site for awhile, you know this is one of my favorite things to give away. I love to give these away – because cash or gift cards can so easily go to necessities in life – groceries, clothing and other basic needs. So rarely, when the budget is tight – can we justify expenses like this – which I believe bring families together to create beautiful and joy-filled memories. So I’m hoping this giveaway blesses someone with the mini vacation that they can’t justify, but so badly need or want.

It’s easy to enter. One person will win a $300 Great Wolf Lodge gift card, valid at any U.S. Great Wolf Lodge location. There are FIVE possible entries (I know it’s a lot of entries, but it’s a big prize!). If you cheat, you will totally be disqualified.

Transportation to Great Wolf Lodge location is not included with this giveaway. If the cost of your room exceeds $300, you are responsible for the difference. If your room costs less than $300, you can use the remaining balance of the gift card on food, activities or the gift store at any Great Wolf Lodge.

Entry #1 – REQUIRED ENTRY – Please leave a comment on this post. Any comment – what’s on your mind!?

Giveaway ends July 20 at 10 p.m. PST. I will select one random comment and I will email the winner. The winner has 48 hours to respond to my email to claim their prize! If I don’t hear from you in that time, I will have to select another winner. Winning information will be posted here on the site and also on the Queen Bee Facebook page. Good luck!
