California is an awesome destination when it comes to a motorcycle trip, but if you are planning anything more than a day on your Harley, it is important to know a few things before you head out on your motorcycle trip. Thanks to the internet not everything is as it seems, especially when it comes to hotels, motels, Inns and other places where you can stay the night.

One of the best things about Southern California is that you can enjoy the beach, the mountains and the desert all in a day if you wanted to, however, Jim and I like to spend some time in the areas that we visit, so we are always looking for great places to stay when we are on a motorcycle trip.

The trip is nearly 266 miles, so unless you want to ride it straight through, you will want to find a good place to stay. Stop halfway at the Desert Center and spend the night at the Regency Inn in Blythe. It has a pool and plenty of motorcycle parking. Wake up to a free continental breakfast before you make your way into Havasu City where you will find dozens of places to stay such as the Nautical Beachfront Resort on the lake or the Heat Hotel, which is at the foot of the London Bridge.

As we mentioned above Southern California is about the mountains, the deserts, and the beaches and if you are going to include the sun and sand in your motorcycle trip, there is no shortage of accommodations on the coast.

If you haven’t been to Carlsbad on a motorcycle trip, you are missing out. With its fabulous sunsets and pristine beaches, it truly is the best place to end up at the end of your motorcycle trip. Established in 1960, the Beach Terrace Inn, located on Ocean Street, is like a walk back in time and is absolute beachfront. With your own private balcony, parking and free breakfast, you will never want to leave.

Next week we’re heading to the great state of Colorado, which has plenty of accommodations for you to enjoy on your next motorcycle trip.
