We're considering the Dolphin Bay for a 1 night stay for our weekend trip from SF to SD.
We have alternate reservations at the Holiday Inn @ San Luis Obispo (only hotel I could get), but I'm really finicky and was nervous about the property. Will the upgrade to the Dolphin Bay be worth the additional $200? Is the view worth it? My kids (12 & 15) will want a nice pool after the long drive as well.
Also, how many hours to the hotel from SF? We're leaving SF 7am on Saturday morning, driving along the PCH and hoping to stop by by Carmel or Big Sur.
