Hi, we are a family of 4 (2 adults 2 children of 15 & 12) and are looking into possibly going to California either at end of July for 2 weeks or sometime during August. We would like to start In San Francisco (5 nights), drive to Monterey (2 nights), then onto Pismo (2 nights) and finally Santa Barbara (5 nights). We would fly home from LA. As it is a long drive from Monterey to Pismo, we thought that we could maybe get an early start and break for lunch at San Simeon.
I would be grateful for:
1. Comments on our schedule - does it sound reasonable?
2. Hotel recommendations - we would prefer a separate sleeping area from the children but can't really afford 2 separate rooms - do any hotels do reasonably priced family units?
3. Laundry - as we will be driving, we don't want to take to much luggage but haven't found any Hotels that either offer apartment style accom with washing machine or have a laundry facility that we could use.
Thanks for any advise
