Are reservations essential?

We are staying in SF for a friends wedding on 22 Oct. On 24th we intend to drive Hwy 101 to Ft.Bragg/mendocino and then drive back along Coastal road over a few days. Is it going to be essential to make reservations in order to find somewhere to stay or are we likely to be able to just ship up somewhere and find a room?

1. Re: Are reservations essential?

For Friday and Saturday nights, definitely recommend getting a reservation in advance. If the weather is delightful (don't know till then but it usually is) the coast is a favorite week-end get away in the fall. For mid-week (monday through Thursday night) you should be able to find something. Oftentimes there are fall specials for non-weekend days that time of year.
