Driving through Spain from Bilbao to Costa del Sol

I will be driving with my kids and dog from Bilbao to the Costa del Sol this coming summer and am looking for a safe, good quality, pet friendly hotel to stay in somewhere in central Spain to break up the journey. Any suggestions would be welcome also are there motorway stops in Spain similar to the UK?

Yes this is not the far west! LOL

Try to look for a hotel with a swiming pool. If you don't mind driving 5 to 6 hours after the ferryboat, I guess Toledo area is a nice choice. If you prefer to do some trip but no more than 3 hours on the first day don't cross Madrid, Stoping at Lerma's parador would be my choice.

Louis:

Be sure to rent a car with a GPS. This will make driving easy.
