    Default I-5 in CA GDG

    Beginning around Los Banos & south from there about 100 miles - Are there any good motel-restaurant setups along the freeway - maybe even a casino?

    Thanks - will look some more for something more reasonable - One of the reasons the wife likes to do casino's is they are usually more reasonable . Harris Ranch looks like where you'd take your girl friend .

    Been there, done that.

    Google "Santa Nella".
    That's the general area you are talking about. There is a Holiday Inn Express there. It's a big truck stop area. Tons of fast food places and a Pea Soup Andersens.

    If Los Banos is ok,then stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Santa Nella, dog friendly and good clean rooms. For dinner drive into Los Banos and try the Woolgrowers, lots of good food at great prices. Also a very good Mexican restaurant just to the south of town on Mercy Hot Springs Road. In Santa Nella, there is an Andersons Pea Soup restaurant or the Buckhorn buffet.

    If going South on the 5 tonight check with the CHP as the Grapevine down by Los Angeles might be closed due to weather.

    BTW-Santa Nella Holiday Inn has a great spot behind the hotel to air your dog(s)
