Southern California Road Trip

In September, Ms. Rev and I are driving from Tahoe down to San Diego, up to L.A., and then a night each in Santa Barbara and Paso Robles. The plan was 1 night along the road then 3 nights each in San Diego and LA. We're interested in the Santa Barbara-Paso Robles wine country. Haven't been to Southern Cal since we were kids so we have no idea of highlights. Are 3 nights in each city enough or too much time. I would love recommendations on where to stay. Someone mentioned the Valencia in La Jolla or the Coronado, but I don't want to spend quite that much. I'd be interested in 1 hot new restaurant in each city, and some less expensive options for the other nights. Thanks in advance for any help
