  1. Default Seattle to Tampa - Hotel Advice


    I am planning a road trip from Seattle to Tampa. I have my route planned but I am not sure where to stay each night so I need some advice on hotels in the following locations:-

    Near or at Yosemite
    About half way between Yosemite & Yellowstone (Salt Lake City maybe?)
    Near or at Yellowstone
    Somewhere between Mount Rushmore & Memphis (Sioux Falls ?)

    The hotels need to be reasonably priced and also need to be in a safe location i.e. not in the local gang area! I am not looking for 5 star luxury either but something that is friendly and comfortable for a night or 2.

    If anyone can offer some advice it would be very helpful.

    Many Thanks

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    Are you looking to book your hotels ahead of time, or are you going to just roll into town and find a room? Also, what is your timeframe for this trip, both in number of days and when you will be taking this trip?

    As far as worrying about the better parts of town - we often tell people to use their instincts, especially if they are not planning on booking ahead. If you don't feel comfortable in an area, head on down the road. It is rare that any popular area would be without a good selection of lodging.

    Default Reserve at the "Y" Places

    You will probably want reservations at Yosemite and Yellowstone but you really don't need them anywhere else. I agree that it's fairly easy to find good, safe motels along the major roads. Just use good judgment, i.e. location, condition, types of people around, etc.

    Do you want to stay in Yellowstone and Yosemite, or near them?
