Sleep Inn is a popular choice for lodging around the country. When it comes to lodging, many people choose where they stay based on the amenities that the property has to offer. Sleep Inn introduced their Designed to Dream concept at select properties in May of 2010. The concept is to make you feel at home so you can sleep (and dream well)! It features a stylish and residential theme which offers warm colors throughout the room, soft lighting and soothing artwork inspired by nature.
These all new guestrooms boast of plush bedding, modern furnishings and also feature Sleep Inn’s Signature showers. The rooms also have a large desk and workspace with ample outlets and lighting for business travelers. In addition, there is a nice, comfortable desk chair for guests to use.
For those of you that enjoy entertainment while traveling, the rooms have high-definition, flat screen televisions for guests to enjoy their favorite programming.
The lobby of each hotel is warm and inviting. Sleep Inn provides a flexible, open floor plan in the lobby with free internet and comfortable seating including couches so guests can get together to work, relax or socialize. The main color palette of these new Sleep Inn properties is neutral but the lobby has bright colors and large-scale graphics which were inspired by the local landscape. Such a nice touch!
Sleep Inn wants to inspire their guests to have the best night’s sleep while staying there. Throughout the building there are plaques featuring Sleep Inn’s signature “Dream Tips” such as – “Rest fashionably – wear your socks to bed. They help regulate body temperature for a more satisfying night’s rest.”.
There are several other nice amenities offered at these Sleep Inn hotels including free internet, free parking and fitness centers and/or swimming pools. My favorite amenity is the Morning Medley complimentary hot breakfast. The breakfast offers a variety of foods including biscuits and gravy, waffles, cereal, yogurt, pastries and more. They offer several juices, milk and coffee as well. There is a Sleep Inn Morning Medley employee that keeps everything stocked and cleaned up throughout the morning. The woman that took care of breakfast during our stay was quite friendly and nice. The room always stayed clean and there was always plenty of food to eat.
The Sleep Inn property that we visited is in Owensboro, Kentucky. The room was nice and clean when we arrived. We enjoyed spacious Sleep Inn signature shower. There were plenty of towels in the room for a family of four. The beds weren’t as comfortable as my own bed but as far as hotel beds go, they were nice enough. After swimming all evening the first night of our visit, I was happy that the maid came in and refreshed the towels and tidied up our room.
By far, our favorite amenity at the Sleep Inn was the indoor pool. Our first night we had the pool all to ourselves! There was also a whirlpool spa right next to the swimming pool that my husband and I enjoyed relaxing in.
Here is a short video clip of my kids and I enjoying the pool and spa.
As you can see my kids had a great time at the Sleep Inn when we visited and it was a nice little getaway for my husband and I as well.
The Sleep Inn Designed to Dream concept is available at many properties nationwide. You can tell that plenty of thought went into designing the interior of the hotel and I know guests like my family really appreciate it. The next time you’re traveling you should consider staying at a Sleep Inn property.
