So, next week I travel from San Diego to Clay Springs Arizona to drop off my Burro at Nancy As campground in prep for a workamping position there.

I will be returning to the San Bernardino Mountains sans my rig .. eek.. (To pick up my things and pets)...so now I must find a place to sleep with the word "hotel" in it on my way back. yech.

My *former* career placed me in hotels at a frequent rate. I generally never chose which one.. we had contracted 5 star ones in every city.. so I just went were the amex program told me too. I do not look at hotels as a fun way to spend an evening.. even if I am paying for it myself these days.

My return trip will take me as far as Laughlin the first day. (Hey, it's either there or Needles ) Any hotel recommendations?

I don't gamble, you could measure my alcohol consumption in a thimble by year, and ciggy smoke is a sensitive subject for me. What else is there to do there for an evening without getting mugged?

Hi Gina - We haven't 'motel-ed it' in Laughlin in a long time, but if memory serves, rates are waaaay cheeper on weeknights than weekends, so you might try to schedule your overnight mid-week. The hotel/motel names that come to mind are Riverside (the oldie original property), Edgewater, Tropicana (formerly Ramada Inn), Harrah's, Colorado Belle ... several more I can't recall.

You might check some of the bargain chain properties just across the river in Bullhead City, AZ.

Also, a few miles away is Avi (Indian) Hotel & Casino ... rates might be pretty affordable there. Just some FYI's - L 'n D

I'd spend the night in Needles.

Real cheap almost everywhere in NV right now. I am taking next week to photo tour the Mojave Reserve in my egg but stopping one night in Sams Town (I need a "real room" at least once per week). It was only $30 for the night.

Gina,

Last year, we were without a travel trailer. We found a great deal at the Colorado Belle last September. And a no smoking room. We had reservations there in January, but canceled them when we bought our new non-egg.

Their flyer was in the mail when we got home last night. Some Colorado Belle (and Edgewater) prices are listed below:

Beginning on March 1st

Sun - Tues $17.95 ($18.95)

Wed $17.95 ($17.95)

Thur $18.95 ($17.95)

Fri - Sat $45.95 ($45.95)

I suspect that this weeks pricing is similar. Very cheap during the week, and higher on the weekend.

Their reservations # is 866-645-8798

Another tip. As you travel, gather up the motel coupon guides. I typically find them at the front door of truck stops and restaurants. Most are walk-in deals. Again, often higher during the weekend. Once in a while, you can call ahead and make a reservation.

On the same September trip, no motel in Williams, AZ (Grand Canyon) had rooms at the coupon price. We drove on to Flagstaff, and stayed in a best value (exact name is lost). More expensive than Laughlin, but we were able see Grand Canyon as a loop and return to the same room.


Good Luck,

Russ

Hi Gina, I note that both Laughlin and Needles have a KOA. Perhaps consider a Cabin...er...Kabin at a KOA. At least you'll be able to see and talk to other RVer's on your nightly stroll, if that's your routine..maybe even a discount per night if you have a camper card...er or is that Kard?

Most hotel/motels do not allow pets anymore. Be sure to check on that. I would stay in Needles or Bullhead. Laughlin in a pit.

Lizbeth,
She said she would not have her pets with her on the trip back home. So any of the motels suggested should work.
Gina,
So glad you found something. Pet the beagles for me when you pick them up.

yep.. this is a solo trip. They go out when I make the final move. I didn't think it was fair to make them do a 4 day round trip all couped up in kennels only to turn around and make ANOTHER trip back in a few weeks.
