“Are we there yet?” It’s the dreaded repeated question asked of any parent who has taken a road trip or has flown with their kids. As many parents know, travelling with kids can be a challenge when they are bored, tired or hungry. Planning your destination so that the kids will be happy is a great way to ensure that the parents will be happy.

If you’re visiting the city of Saskatoon in Saskatchewan, one way to help kids, and parents, have a good time is to look for Saskatoon hotels that cater to families.

Here are five ways to make the kids happy when arriving at your destination:

1. Save face by saving travel time

If flying, look for a hotel near Saskatoon airport. That way, you will spend less time travelling and more time settling the kids into your room. This is especially helpful if you are flying in at nighttime and dealing with tired, little eyes.

2. Slip, slide, and getaway

One of the best ways to keep the kids occupied while staying at a hotel is to have them entertained.  And there’s no better way to do that than looking for hotels in Saskatoon with a waterslide and pool.

Comfort Suite Saskatoon’s indoor heated pool and 40-ft. twisting waterslide fits that bill. Your kids can splash and play for hours, while you sit poolside or watch from the hot tub.

3. Take in some family attractions

While in Saskatoon, you and your family will want to make sure you see all that this beautiful Prairie city has to offer. All located within close proximity to Comfort Suites Saskatoon, some of the things to see and do include:

  • Visiting Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo to see the animal exhibits, gardens and restored heritage buildings
  • Catching a hockey game, concert or other event at SaskTel Centre
  • Riding the rapids at the Shaw Centre waterpark
  • Walking the trails and exploring archaeological finds at Wanuskewin Heritage Park

4. The way to a child’s heart…

There is no better way to make a child happy than to feed them. As one of the best hotels in Saskatoon, Comfort Suites offers a complimentary hot breakfast, which includes some favourites such as waffles and bacon! Keep them satiated with a choice of family-friendly dining options nearby.

5. Make it a family fun movie night

Another way to make the kids happy is to have them watch their favourite comic book hero battle it out or their favourite Disney-Pixar character perform on the big screen. Not only do you and your kids enjoy a night at the movies with our Saskatoon hotel family package, you can also enjoy two medium pizzas and a 2-litre bottle of pop.
