Yes, you can drive from San Francisco to LA in under 6 h if you stick to I5, a little longer if you take 101. We recently decided to break the trip up, driving down Highway 1 with an overnight stay at the Anderson Inn in Morro Bay. It turned out to be a great decision. Not only was the drive spectacular (pick a sunny weekday for the best views and least traffic) the Anderson Inn turned out to be wonderful and Morro Bay a beautiful spot. There are lots of restaurants in town; however, we ate at the adjoining restaurant (The Galley) where we had a terrific locally caught seafood dinner.
As others have mentioned, Molly Anderson and her brothers are extremely welcoming and generous with their knowledge of the area. They clearly love their town!
We did not have one of the rooms overlooking the bay. Nevertheless it was very large, comfortable and well appointed with a balcony.
We will definitely be returning to the Anderson Inn.
