We usually scope it out and end up with a bagel & cream cheese. Hubby gets a cup of coffee. Give me a diet coke & a piece of fruit & I’m good until lunch. At home we eat a grab & go style breakfast, thus the same on the road. We tend to spend our money on night meals. But we have found a light early lunch and an early dinner gets us ahead of the crowds.
To answer the original question: We don’t pick a hotel just because they serve a free breakfast. But I tend to have my favorite chains, and they serve one.
