Lodging Out of SLC

Not sure if this is the right forum but can anyone suggest a place to stay overnight on the way to Jackson from SLC? Our plane lands around 4:30 PM and I would like to drive for a couple of hours before stopping for the night on our way to Jackson. There doesn't seem to be much in Soda Springs. How about the junction of I-15 and US 30?

You won't find anything off the freeway between Malad (and not even sure about that, making it more like Brigham City) and Pocatello.

While the route along 30 to 34 looks more direct, the roads are narrow and winding and you'll travel much slower. I'd stick with I-15 to Idaho Falls and then along 26. Many choices in Pocatello (about 2.5 hrs north of SLC)- but a little longer as said with evening traffic- taking Legacy Highway north from the airport would help.

If you stay with hwy 30 -34 then Lava Hot Springs would be your best bet, but I have yet to find anything really decent there, just barely passable is all.

Kbecjeans, I think you are right that Brigham City is the last real lodging until Pocatello. There is one motel listed in Malad City on TA and it sounds absolutely awful. There is also a B&B listed but it must be some way off the highway as I have never seen it while passing by. I would give Malad a miss.

Thanks...think we'll shoot for Pocatello. Kbecjeans, are you saying it's best to stay on 26 all the way from I-15 to Jackson rather than using Pine Creek Road and Teton Pass? On the map it appears 26 takes you way north and then sweeps south and finally north again into Jackson. Perhaps this is still more desireable than the Pine Cr. and Teton Pass route?

Is the Pine Cr.-Teton Pass route scenic?

dme12373,

After Idaho Falls either route would be fine. Again you'll be going just a little bit faster if you stay on 26 to 89, but since it is longer the timing is not as much of an issue if you want to take 31 to 33 and over Teton Pass. Both are scenic.

What it sounded like you were doing was going through Soda Springs, and that route would not save you any time.

Lodging at Tremonton is possible, but why? If you don't have enough time then stop in Brigham City. If you do have enough time then keep going to Pocatello.
