NEW YORK – Looking to solidify its position as a family vacation motel, Days Inn has invited The Flintstones to check in for a two-year stay. The 1,425-unit hotel chain has signed an agreement with Turner Home Entertainment that gives the chain rights to use ‘the modern stone-age family’ in advertising and promotions for two years.
