From the other side of this ... Last year, we went home right after cleanup at comps, only to drag ourselves into the house, unable to unload everything until morning. Last month, we stayed in a hotel near the comp were were in. I got to relax, as I didn't feel as much need to tear down as quickly, and then I got a good night's sleep. The drive home the next day was very easy, and I was back to normal by evening. It proved to me that it's worth the stay.
