How do I get a free hotel room?

We have to fly my daughter to st.louis Missouri twice this year, she has cerabral palsy, she needs to see an neurologist again and have surgery. I need any advice you may have on how to get a copmed or extremely discounted room. So far $95.00 a night is considered discounted but not cheap when we have to pay for 14 nights.

  • You might also think about writing letters to hotels/bed & breakfasts. You never know who is in the giving spirit.

  • I LOVE the Ronald McDonald house!! They were great when my daughter was in MorganTown @ Ruby Mem. for about 1 1/2wks.the hospital may have information on them. I would call ahead of time because sometimes they have a waiting list. They hooked us up with a motel for about $45 night instead of $100
