After searching the internet for affordable room rates in Pismo Beach and Morro Bay, my wife and I settled on Motel 6. The Online photos looked OK. We booked 2 rooms for 3 days. When we arrived we realized it was being remodeled. The last wing was in final completion. Our room was nice but it was just a basic... More

If you can stay here during the week, the rates are quite good. I stayed in a recently renovated room and it was very clean and just fine. The bathroom had black granite counters , a shower, but was really small . The floors in the room were faux wood .. There were no amenities (except tv) in the room... More

This was a typical Motel 6-sized room, but had been recently renovated with a couple of great upgrades. There was a decent sized flat-screen television, laminate flooring that will definitely be better over time that crummy carpet, and lots of electrical outlets for charging devices. The bedding was pretty basic, but we managed a good night's sleep. There really isn't... More

We decided to stay here overnight because our daughter had an appointment nearby we didn't want her to miss. The front staff was very friendly and helpful. They had vending machines, laundry & ice machines. The worst part of our room was the bathroom. The shower stall's floor was patched up, but unfortunately was cracking up again & looked very... More

Stayed here for 3 nights for a long weekend in February. Rooms are very small and dingy. They claim the beds are queen size - which is simply not true. They are very small. Deflated pillows. Brown spots on the "clean" sheets....!! Bring your own shampoo because you ain't getting any here. $3 for wifi. Bottom line: sure it's a... More

The hotel is very basic, nothing amazing but for the price and location you can't get better! This is located near the 101, near the outlets and near the beach. I have stayed here quit a few times when I knew I wouldn't be in the room except to sleep and shower!

The rooms are not 'good'. They are small and dingy. The beds are small. The bathroom doors won't lock The thermostat is not practical because it doesn't have an automotaic setting. So your room would either be too hot or too cold. You can get other hotels in the same price range. So time comes again, I won't come here.

We stayed one night on the drive back from LA to San Francisco. The motel was just what we wanted in that it was economical, clean and convenient. It was a simple room but we were able to get wifi. It was good value for money and the large number of them meant we could be flexible about where and... More

We asked for a king size bed and was told they only had a queen. It turned out to be two double beds instead. The mattresses were the worse we have ever experienced, very hard! We were on the first floor and the second floor sounded like one thin layer of plywood - we could hear a dog wagging it's... More
