Why Extended Stay Hotels Are the Best Temporary Housing for Families

Why Extended Stay Hotels Are the Best Temporary Housing for Families

Whether you’ve been temporarily relocated for work, you’ve lost your existing housing, or credit woes are preventing you from securing permanent housing, an extended stay hotel makes an excellent option for a family in a bind. Parents looking for a comfortable place to live should consider all the benefits an efficiency hotel suite can provide. See why InTown Suites is the best extended stay hotel for families needing flexible reservation terms, a convenient location, and a move-in ready, furnished temporary housing.

Flexible, Temporary Housing Terms

Foregoing a lease is one benefit of choosing an extended stay hotel over a temporary apartment. If your situation is week-by-week because you’re waiting for an apartment to open up, you’re on an assistance application waitlist, or you’ve relocated for a temporary project, you need flexible interim housing terms. InTown Suites lets you check in for a week—without a credit check or lease—and you can renew online as needed. This flexibility leaves you free to choose a more permanent option if it’s available and keeps you from constantly moving due to short-term leases. When relocating to a new city, opting for an extended stay hotel gives you time to learn about the schools, find employment, and then settle on the best neighborhood, rather than committing to a long-term lease first.

Temporary Housing for Military Families

Extended stay hotels are also a top choice for temporary military housing; the locations near many bases offer a convenient place for a spouse and children to live off-site while their partner fulfills service duties. The flexible reservations InTown offers allow service members to move hassle-free during times of Permanent Change of Station, new job assignments, or transfers, without breaking contracts or damaging their credit.

Move-In Ready Housing for Families

Because gaps in housing can be even more distressing when you have an entire family to move, an extended stay hotel makes an attractive temporary housing option. There isn’t a long delay between reserving your suite and moving in, so you won’t suffer days’ worth of uncertainty before you have keys to your own space. There’s no lengthy credit check, and the suites at InTown are triple checked clean so you won’t need to scrub the previous guest’s mess before moving your family in. We’ve included the utilities in every suite’s rate to simplify move-in day—you’ll have immediate access to Wi-Fi, local telephone calls, and more without first setting up accounts with local utility companies or paying startup fees. 

Apartment-Style Furnishings in Every Suite

The best temporary housing for families is a furnished extended stay suite, especially one that comes with practical, homelike furniture. InTown’s basic suite amenities help you get settled in without moving belongings from storage. Each suite offers an in-room kitchen with a full-size refrigerator, two-burner stovetop, and microwave to cook quick meals for the entire family and store leftovers—all you need to bring is basic cookware, utensils, and dishes. When moving a family, storage is a must. You’ll find the built-in closets, standalone dressers, and shelving in our Upgraded and Premium Suites help you keep the space tidy and organized. 

Select from three suite levels to tailor your choice to your family’s needs and budget:

    • Traditional Suites provide the basics in our most-affordable room style; because there is less focus on storage and upgrades, this economy suite may not be ideal for a family who needs more space.
    • Upgraded Suites come with updated bedding and more storage than Traditional Suites. You’ll find the storage bed frame, built-in closets, and bathroom medicine cabinet and shelving provide a spot for all of your everyday essentials, from kids’ toys to toiletries.
  • Premium Suites are fully renovated and feature more modern furnishings, new appliances, and even more storage in the bedroom and bathroom. Furniture in a Premium Suite includes a drop-leaf dining table and a lift-top coffee table, ideal for school-age children to do homework or enjoy evening meals and activities. 

Convenient Locations Near Schools, Work & Shopping

Many parents who choose an InTown Suites extended stay hotel find they benefit from the property’s surroundings. Our extended stay locations offer easy access to public transportation, necessity stores, shopping, and schools. With multiple locations throughout 22 states, you have options for choosing the extended stay hotel nearest your work, kids’ schools or daycare, or in a central area to ease your commute. 

Affordable Extended Stay for Family Vacations

The need for convenient transitional housing isn’t the only reason InTown Suites is the best extended stay hotel for families. Many vacationers choose our properties because they are affordable, comfortable alternatives to a conventional hotel. The reasonable weekly rates leave money in the budget for sightseeing, attractions, or a rental car, and having an in-room kitchen gives parents the option to provide healthy, delicious meals without overspending on dining out. InTown Suites also has weekly offers to help you achieve an even more wallet-friendly vacation.

When it comes to temporary housing, InTown Suites has you covered with room options for any budget. We’re happy to provide basic furnishings and comfortable home-like accommodations for as long as you need. Whether you’re staying for a week, a month, or longer, you’ll enjoy a great value for your money when you choose InTown Suites.
