Where to stay in Utah 3rd week of Feb
 
Ok, so I'm planning a trip out to west and I'm thinking of staying local to Park City and the Canyons since I don't plan on renting a car. Where's an inexpensive decent place to stay? I'd like to check out other resorts but I don't know if I wanna swing the dough to rent a 4x4.

I'll probably be arriving either a Tuesday or a Wednesday. I've been trying to do some research but I don't think my search skills are up to par.

I don't know if it's cheaper to find groceries and find a place with a kitchen to save $$ on eating out or saving $$ on lodging to afford eating out. If it was 4 or more people I'd pick a place with a kitchen but since it's just two of us I'm not sure what would be the best route not to mention I would end up having to rent a vehicle to go grocery shopping anyway.

Anyone have any hookups for lodging for two? :laugh:

Park City and "cheap" don't belong in the same sentence......You stay there you will pay.....no getting around it....

Rent a car, stay and Sandy or Midvale, pick up lift tickets from Canyon Sports, and drive up (or take the bus from a park & ride) to the LCC/BCC resorts. It is still going to be a lot cheaper than going to PC.

^^Sounds like a better idea. I'd like to check out the different resorts.

Any suggestions on which place to stay or if there's a place with a kitchen?

I've stayed at Homewood Suites in Midvale on Fort Union Blvd (if you follow up this road, it is the same road that will turn into the road that goes into Solitude/Brighton. Along this road is Canyon Sports to pick up cheap lift tickets. Suite style rooms with full kitchen. Stayed for around $100 a night depending on promos.

If you need to go to PC, its about a 30-40 minute drive from here.

Im going at around the same time and it seems Midvale is the place to stay. Check out the Super 8 around 50 bucks a night and ski bus pick up across the street.

super 8 is the best place but im pretty sure they dont have kitchenettes .. however every style of food is within 3 blocks of that place ( including a grocery store).. get a shuttle from the airport to the super8 and take the bus to solitude brighton or snowbird.. walk to food .. youll never need a car

I ride weds thurs and sundays for sure .. all the other days are maybe maybe not .. need a ride to solitude or brighton on those three days let me know

I was hoping to check out the other resorts in the area and it seems that rental for an suv/4x4 is around $800?!?! :eek: That's crazy. I might as well sleep in that thing. I guess I can rent an econobox and hope the two boards fit in there if they have folding seats.

Which Hotel 8 is it exactly? Is there an address available?

My concern is not being able to hit the other resorts if it dumps. I guess I'm starting to get picky now...lol

I'll take a motel/hotel jacuzzi/pool and rent an econobox I suppose. :dunno:

If it dumps and chains are required, take the ski bus. Theres stops in Midvale, or you can drive up to the parking lot in the beginning of each canyon and catch it from there.

Super 8 Salt Lake City Hotel this super 8 is minutes from solitude brighton and snowbird ... two skishops on the way to the resorts plus a million ( almost ) food choices within 3 blocks
