Progresso to Palenque Auto Trip

We are planning to drive from Progresso to Palenque in April. Are there any intermediate places to stay overnight? El Tigre ruins look interesting but an 8 hour road trip doesn't leave much sight seeing time.

Campeche is not much more than 2 hours away and then you could see the Edzna ruins nearby (which are better than most). Campeche has a reasonable Centro at night too. Then take a 5-6 hour road trip the next day to Palenque.

Escargega is the biggest town en route but I can't think of a good reason to stay there as it seems to be an unremarkable place (I drove through it last summer and can't remember it at all!). Campeche to Palenque is an easy drive (go via Escargega - it's quicker) so no need to stop but if you google "Escargega hotels" you should find some semi-decent ones.

As mentioned, really nothing to see in Escarcega but I have noticed quite a few decent looking hotels when passing through on the ADO bus. Might be a good option. But if you see a restaurant with ADO buses and others in front, dont stop. A really bad place--but the drivers get free food!
