A cheap and safe place to stay between Los angeles and the Grand canyon

I used to live in England and a lot of my friends and family come to visit me here now in San Diego, California and always plan road trips when they visit.

A lot of them will fly into San Francisco and drive down the coast via Los Angeles and then visit me in San Diego before heading off to the Grand Canyon or Las Vegas.

What comes up a lot in conversation is a place they can stop at between Los Angeles / San Diego & The Grand Canyon that’s not Las Vegas.

The place i stop the most for just an overnight stay and i really mean that, there is absolutely nothing to go and see in this area is Needles, CA.
The past few years i have stopped over night at the Rodeway Inn & Suites and with an average price of $50 for the night, it’s a steal for a room.

Now it’s not going to blow you away with its hotel rooms and facilities , it really is just a place to crash for the night and catch some Z’s.

Though it does have a pool which isn’t bad, as in the summer needles can reach an average of 115 F, ¬†so the pool does come in handy then.

It’s just under a 4 hour drive from Los Angeles

As i said the rooms are nothing to write home about, but they do the job for 1 nights sleep on route to the grand canyon

There is a McDonald’s in the car park practically that you can use for your morning coffee and snack before you head back onto the road.

As i’ve said before this hotel is nothing glamorous , but it definitely does the job for a safe nights sleep, when you get up in the morning you have under 4 hour drive to complete the distance to the Grand Canyon
