I'm turning 50 this year and it is also our 25th anniversary. So in October we are spending 3 days at DL, staying on site, and then spending another week driving the coast and eventually ending in San Francisco before we fly home. We need a hotel in the LA area so we can spend a couple days doing the Hollywood/tourist thing. We don't plan to drive straight to San Francisco though, we'd ideally like to stop somewhere mid-way and tour a couple days out from that base hotel, and then move on to our final stop and spend a few days touring from an SF base. Big splurge will be Disney for sure, leaning towards Grand Californian, but it may be to big of a splurge. So something not too pricey per night would be great. Thanks!!
