We recently discovered Stay22, an interactive map-based booking engine used to find travel accomodations based on a specific location, event, or point of interest. Merging traditional hotel/motel search results with VRBO, Stay22 is a perfect solution for families road-tripping across the country or simply looking for a staycation as we all hunker down during COVID-19.
Even before the pandemic, I found myself booking stays with VRBO and specifically looking for a larger kitchen, laundry facilities, and privacy (room for the kids to run and play). Many extended stay facilities offer these ammenities and other perks like swimming pools, on-site laundry facilities, and often times a weekday family-style meal/happy hour buffet, but it’s a lot of work searching many different sites for the perfect “family friendly” destination.
In a nutshell, Stay22 saves you the effort of switching and searching between different apps or search engines by putting everyting together as pins on a map. If you know you want to stay by a certain attraction or be within walking distance of a concert or theater performance, simply add the address and see all of the options available within a specific date range.
