Places to stay on drive from San Francisco to LA

We are an Aussie couple who will be driving from San Francisco to LA and staying at two different places over night on the way down to have a look around - where would you guys advise for these two stops? Would like to see Hearst Castle but don't necessarily have to stay at San Simeon.

Would like places not too expensive as we will be nearing the end of a 5 week trip.

Look forward to all suggestions. Karen

The usual recommendations are Monterey for the first night and either Cambria (For Hearst Castle) or Pismo Beach.

Define "not too expensive" for lodging. Need a more specific price range you're willing to pay for a room.

In Cambria: Bluebird Motel, Creekside Inn, Cambria Palms

Pismo Beach: Quality Inn, Oxford Suites, Hampton Inn (Arroyo Grande)
