Hello, we are planning a trip to California in October. We'd like to go across from Highway 1 at san Simeon across to Highway 395 and then up north to Yosemite. What is the best route from San Simeon - and would anyone recommend route 178 from Bakerfield as part of the route? Also, is it fairly easy to find motels en route once on the 395?
