My boyfriend and I are doing a road trip from San Francisco to San Diego at the height of the summer season in August this year. We have flights booked and our first 5 days organised (3 nights SF and 2 nights Yosemite) and are then planning on driving down the coastline stopping at Carmel, San Simeon, Carpinteria, LA and finally ending in San Diego.
We are wondering how much money to budget for accommodation over the next 12 nights before flying home, any ideas? Bearing in mind we are not looking for ultimate luxury, just somewhere that's clean and comfortable.
If anyone has done this trip before and can advise on a realistic daily spending budget minus any trips that's would be great.
