Whether driving, cycling or even walking, whether traveling the entire route or just visiting one part of it, you'll always wish you had more time. So choose the right place to stay, and make sure you make the most of the Pacific Coast!

We've divided our Where to Stay on the Pacific Coast Highway section into three, so click on the road sign for more details about hotels, inns, guesthouses, RV Parks, city hotels, oceanfront accommodation in each state:

All of the hotels we've personally stayed in on our drives appear on our website and also in our annual guide to Pacific Coast Highway Hotels. The guide contains over 200 hotels, which we've selected based on people's recommendations, their historic interest, their location, and other factors. You can read all about it on our
