Tip #4: Stay at a classic hotel/motel that offers free admission to big waterparks.
So many of the smaller hotels and motels have partnered with the big guys, meaning the big waterparks and waterpark resorts, to offer their overnight guests free passes with their room price. Peruse the Places to Stay section of wisdells.com.
Tip #5: Stay at amenity-laden waterpark resorts.
Aside from the biggest free amenity of all - admission to all the indoor and outdoor waterparks at these properties (some only allow overnight guests of their property to use the waterparks) - many have discounted prices to their other on-premise attractions like amusement parks and ropes courses, deals when you dine in their restaurants, savings on spa services and golf, and some even include free tickets to popular attractions when you reserve a package deal.
