Road Trip - San Fran to Las Vegas

Hi, my friends and I are travelling to San Fran from Ireland next month and we were planning on driving from San Fran (after staying 2 nights) to Vegas (4 night stay). We have 1 night in between to spare so we were hoping to stay some where cool on the way. Can anyone recommend any "real American" towns (i.e. not tourist traps) to stay in for 1 night. We're all young and like our beer so bare that in mind.

Unfortunately it's a pretty ugly trip through the California desert to Vegas. And the trip south to make the connection to the I15 is only better by comparison using any of the 101, 5, or 99. There are some scenic alternatives but they will take forever. If it was me, I'd take the 101 even though it takes longer, and make sure to stop at Pismo Beach for clam chowder, though I guess there's already a few choice options for chowder in the bay area.
