There's no real need to ever visit the Rest Stop, as far as the storyline goes.
However, there's some treasure here, and one subquest, so if you want to complete everything, you've got to stop here at least once.
(If you need to, you can use the Inn - but there is a Recovery point in the central area of the ravine, which is free, if you can make it that far.)
There's a Gem Collector in the basement, who will trade 7 Weed Gems for a Magnify Jewel.
Rest Stop Treasure
Mighty Salt - located outside the Inn, on the west side
Guild Scythe +36 (Critical 32% Steal 50%) - located outside the Inn, on the east side

Delete Fossil x2 - located in a secret passage in the basement
Reraise Jewel - located in a secret passage in the basement
