we are going to be in st george utah in october, and have two and a half days (2 overnights), to get to san francisco. i have posted this elsewhere and was advised to post on the death valley forum. we are hoping to do this trip via death valley and yosemite (just driving through yosemite sadly without a stop in the valley). the place we want to spend time rather than just driving through is death valley as we have not been there before - only a drive through. the problem i am having is where to stay. ideally it would be nice to be based in the national park, but it is simply out of our budget. we are not averse to long days of driving, we have 3 drivers, all of whom love to drive especially on the us west's open and empty roads. we come from the uk so this is such a novelty for us. our preferences for accommodation are two bedroom suites with a little kitchen, or one bedroom and living area with sofa bed. at a push though we are not averse to sharing a two double bed room (we are a party of 4 adults). for this stop we can budget around £100. we had thought of staying the night in las vegas but this involves rather too much coming and going. apart from the national park accommodation there appears to be a distinct lack of availability at this time of year - even if we could afford it. any suggestions anyone.
