Stayed in Motel 6 San Luis Obispo-South for 1 night. It was a good experience, the rooms were small but definitely nice more like an ikea show room type of design. There was hardwood floor and the bathroom did not have a mirror inside, the mirror and vanity is located outside of the actual restroom which for me was kind... More

We were looking for a convenient, inexpensive stop halfway between San Diego and the Bay Area along CA-101. A friend recommended this, and called it "spartan". It is fairly spartan - bright orange & yellow decor reminiscent of a Scandinavian hostel, no hairdryer or shampoo provided - but it was very clean, quiet, air-conditioned, and only $72 when we booked...

I and my son stayed at Motel 6 South in San Luis Obispo for two nights. Hotels in San Luis Obispo area are often expensive. We decided to give Motel 6 a try based on other reviewers' positive comments. Of course, for the price, this is no Embassy Suites. But Embassy Suites charges more than double the price. The Motel...

Stayed in this Motel 6 for almost 2 weeks, after road tripping for some weeks. Great place to stay while you're exploring the neighboring cities and villages. Very nice trails and running courses nearby. The motel itself is remodeled, the front desk staff is very helpful, but the cleaning ladies are the best. The place is spotless, they really work...

I was nervous about staying at a Motel 6. But I was impressed with the details of the property from the moment we pulled into the area. The hotel is tucked in the valley of beautiful SLO foothills. It's located near the end of a meandering road filled with trees and flowers. Behind the pretty landscaping, on either side of... More

Great room for a family of four, and a great price. It was the nicest Motel 6 we have ever stayed in. The pics were exact, our room was super clean & contemporary. Staff was really friendly & accommodating. Shopping & food are all very close, just a quick drive down the street. (Olive Garden, Bevmo, Old Navy, Burger King,... More

We didn't want to spend over $200 per night for a room which the neighboring hotels were charging so we decided on Motel 6. It was CLEAN and REMODELED. Decent bed but the pillows could be more fluffier. Liked the laminent wood floors. Bathroom has granite counter. Make sure you bring your own shampoo/conditioner, lotion and hairdryer. No iron as...

Was very pleased with my stay here. Super clean room, easy check-in, pleasant staff, and a great location close to restaurants and freeway. Clean pool and nice landscaping. Just a short drive to the beaches and fun things to do in the area. Would be happy to stay here again.

We stayed here 2 nights on a business trip. First of all, the setting of the grounds is beautiful. I know it's Motel 6 and there are no frills. The bed was awful. There was only a mattress and no box springs. It was so soft that we could not sleep well at all. If these are remodeled rooms then... More

Good basic accommodations, clean, and a tranquil setting at the end of a road that felt safe. A better quality Motel 6 experience! Note this is the South SLO location. Fine place to stay just to spend the night. And dogs are welcome.
