I will admit- I am no longer a camping kind of girl. In my youth, my husband and I happily camped all over Europe but now it seems like more trouble than it is worth- so we B&B and hotel it all the way! On our most recent journey we learned of a fantastic little book called Room Saver. You can find these at fast food joints like McDonalds in their main entrance with advertising magazines, in San Francisco I found them in newspaper boxes on street corners and I found them also in gas station in Idaho. The magazine is full of discounts on various hotel in different regions. I also found out that you can get these little gems online! http://www.roomsaver.com/ is a great place to start and you can even follow them via Twitter! We ended staying in Palm Springs for $47 a night- darn good deal in my books!!
