    So we are going to POP for our July 4th trip( and MNSSHP). So this will be the first trip for my ds gf, and the first time we will have share a room with more then just me and him. So of you parents out there, that have gone with there sons or daughters and there GF,BF or Husband or wife, how did that go with sharing a room?. Is it to awkward, is it worth the extra money to get my own room, don't really would have the extra dollars, but if it makes the time better i will do it. So how did your trips go with shearing a room.

    I would get a room for myself. Would be uncomfortable sharing.

    If you can, I would get an extra room for you. It might not feel awkward for you or your son, but you can bet it will for his girlfriend. JMHO.

    Please consider your own room. Just think how awkward your son's girlfriend would feel!

    Please don't be offended but there's no way I would even consider doing this. I would stay off site in two rooms if I had too.

    I hope you have a great trip whatever you decide to do!!&#128515;

    How about Art of Animation which has a separate bedroom. I would have no problem sharing that with my Daughter and her BF.

    No way would I be comfortable sharing a room witth a child & their SO. We went with DD her DH a few years ago. They didn't evn want connecting rooms! :rotfl2:

    As an adult child, I wouldn't want to share a single hotel room with my parents and my SO. I feel like it would be incredibly awkward. But if its all you can afford, it's all you can afford!

    When we went with our DD and her SO we definitely had our own room. NO WAY would I have wanted the awkwardness of early mornings/bedtimes (especially within the confines of a value room). And I'm pretty sure DD and her SO felt the same. Think of it as just another passing from one parenting stage to another.

    Personally, I wouldn't have any problem with it. But I would highly encourage you to speak to your son and his girlfriend, openly and honestly, and ask how THEY feel about it and express YOUR feelings. Before my husband and I were married, we spent a lot of time with both sets of parents and none of them had any problem with us being together. And neither did we in that capacity. But all of us were honest with each other. That's all you need.

    Oh yeah, if you decide to all stay in one room, ask if the girlfriend snores. That would be a deal breaker for me.

    You will pay the extra adult fee for the room for each night you are there as well.

    I wouldn't mind it. We had my MIL stay in the room with us on our trip in May. No awkwardness there but I guess we're in the minority here.

    My husband and I have shared a room with my mom and it was fine. What worked for us is that she (being an early riser) would get up first, then go to the food court to have coffee and read the paper, which gave us more space and privacy to get ready in the mornings.

    Every family is different, but if you are all okay with it, then there shouldn't be any problems!

    Well fortunately I think they put privacy curtains in the sink area at the values now, so at least there would be a private area for getting ready in the mornings and evenings. Maybe someone can confirm this.
    If you've discussed this with son and his GF and everyone is ok with it, then that's fine. Many families share. Go with what you can afford, and have a good time!

    I'm like this too. I've shared a hotel room on more than one occasion with my husband and my MIL and it was fine. It's not something I would want to do every night of a long vacation, but for a short trip I think it's a great way of saving everyone a bit of money. I think it's something that sounds weirder on paper than it actually is.

    In saying all this, I get along well with my MIL and we have a comfortable relationship that has built up over years. In the early stages of my husband and I dating, I'm not sure I would have been so amicable.

    It depends on your relationship and traveling style. I traveled a lot with friends and family and am pretty casual. Seeing people in pjs isn't offensive and I have the sense and relationships to either make myself scarce or ask someone else to! My mom is traveling with us this trip. She is hard of hearing and drinks early morning coffee. Thus we have some privacy.

    So it depends on you and them. :) have fun!

    I would not do this in that small of a space.. Just not ideal

    I would however... but only.... in a family suite, that way you each get your own bathroom, and do have some privacy. And I suggest that you take the bedroom.

    If I had to share a room with my boyfriend's mother, I wouldn't mind it. However, I'm very close with his family. I guess it all depends on how close you are!
