In June my partner and I are driving from Carmel (leaving after lunch) and heading east towards Yosemite. We have a hotel booked at Bridgeport on the east side of Yosemite and plan to take route 120. Bridgeport is just a stopping point on the way back to Las Vegas.
From Carmel to Bridgeport is about 300 miles and 5 hours or so. We had planned to break that journey with an overnight stay somewhere along the way. Not sure whether to just keep driving and find a motel, or is there a good place to book in advance?
