Day 20 - Driving the Pacific Coast Highway

... was quick to mention that there are a number of historic reinforced concrete arch bridges. These span these deep creek gullies taking the road across spans of almost 100 m. The road also travels up through a State Park with some quant camping and cabins and lots of coffee opportunities.

On one of the many stops to take in the views there were a couple of dolphins and perhaps a couple of hump-backs. There was a bit of "it’s a ...

... They change so much while we are gone. Should have seen the license plates at his farewell party. I counted 13 different states when I walked thru the parking out front of our campers. That is just crazy!

... is bumper to bumper for miles and the clutch is screaming for relief. Forty minutes north on route 101, we hit Gilroy (the garlic capitol of the world). Gilroy is where the Spirit and Scout were built. Indian of Gilroy, while it has an active website, is no longer in existence. Oh we'll, I guess we should have called. It's hot! Gilroy is a very pretty city. We settle into an overpriced Motel 6. Not sure the lights are really ...

... in California with a surrounding countryside to die for: Beautiful almost jaw-dropping countryside of rolling hills covered with award winning wineries, incredible nature, mild climate. And very friendly, laid-back and seemingly happy people everywhere. Lovely old town inviting for evening scrolls past plenty of little Restaurants, Cafes and lounges to stop for culinary highlights: One of these places where I could have ...

We pulled off the highway to appreciate the view and say the spume of migrating humpback whales- a pair just 50 meters off the shoreline. Continue past many strawberry farms working up to the launch of the Strawberry Fair in a week's ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Casa Grande Inn Arroyo Grande

    One nighter....

    from

    Exterior better than interior. Room could use updating/renovation. Faint smell of natural gas in room. We didn't want to fight for breakfast with the two bus tours so we gave up.

    Fairly good value. Pool area was nice. One night was sufficient.

    Wish we had stayed longer

    from

    This is a lovely motel (exterior access to most rooms) that is deceptively large. The pool area looked great although we didn't get a chance to use it. Our room was oversized, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. The free breakfast included fresh muffins, bagels, bread, cereal and fresh fruit. It was better than most continental breakfasts we encountered on our California trip and the breakfast room was very pretty, too.

    The front lobby is beautiful and the desk staff was very helpful.

    We only stayed one night on our trip up the coast so we didn't get to see the area but the hotel is right off the highway and it looked like there was a lot of shopping nearby.

    Wonderful gem, quiet location, immaculate & great staff!

    from

    Was looking for location close to Avila Beach & Pismo Beach with amenities to keep the family happy while I consulted locally. What a gem! Immaculate large rooms, (additionally they have poolside suites & a two-bedroom townhouse also), with refrigerator, in-room coffee service, large work table, and quiet air conditioner (I was in room 317) Pool and jacuzzi were extremely clean, nice flowering landscaping, and garden paths with fountains to add to the cool breeze coming from the ocean. Away from the freeway, so no road noise with shopping centers/cafes within walking distance. Bus line runs within a block of the hotel, and all day passes available to go to Pismo Beach if you want. Good variety of continental breakfast items and cookies/cocoa/coffee in the afternoon. No internet directly in the room, but a large main lobby building with wireless and/or their computers in private desk areas and comfy chairs made checking email and bus and restaurant info no problem. They have a large game room upstairs in the lobby building with a TV for videos/DVD's, pool tables and paperback selections-- was a good hangout for kids. Ask the staff for restaurant recommendations--we went to Angie & Rudy's Mexican--good 49'er memorabilia in the bar dining area, with Mexican murals in the regular dining area. Owners check in at the table to check on level of service. Definitely would stay again at this Best Western.

    A wonderful 5 day stay

    from

    My wife and I arrived at the Casa Grande Inn planning to stay for 2 nights on an 11 day tour of the California coast; it was so great that we extended our stay to 5 days and made daily trips out.

    Clean rooms, nice little spot.

    from

    Stayed at this hotel with my wife and young daughter. We stayed here as a halfway point between San Francisco and LA. Was a clean hotel, and the front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. He brought us a crib within 30 mins of checking inn. The rooms were very basic but clean. The hotel seemed to be within a nice area and there was a K-Mart within walking distance across a little walking bridge. The front desk staff in the morning opened up the laundry room early for us so we could get our child's laundry done and back on the road to LA, which was very much appreciated. We booked this hotel through Hotwire for $43 a night which was a good deal for this hotel.

    Not the best place!

    from

    I guess we were given the loser room or something because our experience definitely did not match those of the others. We were on the second floor in the middle of the complex. The room was large, dark, smelly, noisy, with creaky beds, ugly bedspreads, wobbly lamps, and a VERY noisy drippy scary refrigerator/cooler thing that my husband had to get on the floor and unplug just so we could survive. We were only here one night on our way to Santa Cruz so it wasn't worth moving. In the morning the breakfast was a real let down. Your standard white bread, stale cereal sodium and glucose muffin crap. Why do they go to so much trouble and not serve one decent tasting thing? Lumpy apples, old oranges and very bad coffee. The breakfast room was packed solid with some weird people, TV blaring, it felt like spending the day at some YMCA in the barrios. Sorry, but we were not impressed. The only good thing was that the woman who checked us in was very friendly and helpful. Overall not a positive experience. A dark, scary smelly room .... for less then this price one might as well stay at a Super 8!

    Great Hotel, Great Price

    from

    Unfortunately, we only stayed at the Casa Grande for one night. To our surprise at check-in, the front desk had upgraded us to the "Honeymoon Suite" for no additional charge. This was the largest hotel room I've ever seen and included all the amenities! Room was clean. Front staff was friendly and knowledgeble. Rates were excellent. Will return to Casa Grande in the future!

    A Family haven!

    from

    This is a wonderful family retreat. It was clean and exactly as the internet described. We were just a couple miles away from Pismo Beach, but right near all of the amenities.

    My kids ages 10 & 14 love pools and the pool was wonderful. Nice and clean and plenty of space. The whirlpool area was nice and there was also a separate sauna for men and women. The hotel staff was very friendly and did a great job.

    My only complaint was that the room was not ready at check in time and we had to wait, but there was complimentary tea and hot chocolate for all guests.

    Also for the extra $20.00 get the suite it was fantastic!

    Excellent value

    from

    very reasonably priced we paid only $75.00 mid week ..when other hotels were twice that amount.

    We didn't use saunas/exercise rooms ,but did have breakfast comp and computer /internet in lobby no charge ..big rooms ,kids liked pool .restaurant is closed only complaint but several close by ..Nicest place we stayed on vacation at 1/2 price .

    Good deal for the money

    from

    This hotel is right off the 101 and about a 30 min drive to Hearst Castle. I was looking for a hotel to stay overnight as I drove north to Hearst Castle. This hotel was conveniently located right off the 101, the rooms were clean, and the staff friendly. I'll stay here again if I ever drive on the 101 and want a place to rest overnight.
