I am tentatively planning a road trip for late April 2014, picking up a rental car in Seattle and driving around the Olympic Peninsula and then south to LA. Is a week long enough to do this trip comfortably with time to see a few things along the way e.g. a day in San Francisco, time to stop and do some short walks in the forests. What is motel accommodation like down the coast like? Is it important to book ahead? I will be doing all the driving (travelling with my 15 year old son).
Many thanks for your help!
