My mother recently passed away and we are looking to rent out a function space to have a gathering for 25-30 friends and relatives to get together, have a little lunch, trade stories, and generally remember her. Low-key is the general idea. Looking for recommendation for locations (hotels, inns, converted barns, restaurants) around North Orange County, California — or web resources that will have good listing of the same. [more inside]

I'll be traveling around the states with my family in August and I'm looking for a good hotel in California, somewhere around LA and San Francisco. It has to be close to, or more preferably own a good beach. I was looking at some resorts in Santa Barbara, but maybe there are some other nice places to stay in.

My family and I want to stay in Big Bear, CA for a couple of nights this winter (to ski). While I'm willing to sleep pretty much anywhere, others are not.
What's the nicest hotel up there?

We are driving from LA to a wedding in Oakland, CA, in a few weekends. The reception will end around 9pm, and we are looking for a place to stay somewhere south of Oakland for one night. Any suggestions? The cooler the better.

My wife is driving with a friend and out 11-yr old god-daughter from our home in Sacramento down to San Diego, leaving Sunday evening. They expect to be near San Luis Obispo when it's time to pull over and go to sleep. Can anyone suggest a good, interesting, fun or otherwise worthy hotel/motel/inn/b&b in the area?
I hate to ask 2 questions in one day, but you are all so very helpful! Please forgive me.
