We're two people doing a classic roadtrip around California + Grand Canyon and LV. We will be driving highway 1 from San Francisco to San Diego with two overnight stays (15-16th of July) along the way. Would you recommend booking hotels, or would it be easy to find a decent hotel/motel/b&b for a maximum of 150 USD per night? We have booked every hotel for the rest of our trip, but were hoping to be more spontaneous on this part of the trip.
Any advice and recommendations appreciated!
