The good: the motel has fresh paint, new beds which are not altogether too hard for a decent night's rest, laminate flooring, black- out curtains, and is far enough from the highway as not to be noisy for a good nights sleep. Also, NO SMOKING in the rooms Nice! Door card reader locks at the entry to the hallway. Nice,... More

Have really no complaints in regards to this Motel, price was good for a Saturday only, 3 miles from Hearst Castle and start of Hwy. 1 drive to Monterey. Decor is leaning towards new trend in Hotels. Only wish they had a coffee maker in the room.

This Motel 6 has been where my husband and I have had many, many weekend getaways. It was definitely in need of new paint on the outside, and fresh carpet would have been nice. Otherwise it was always simple, clean, and pretty cozy. Always really nice staff, too. Now the halls and rooms look like the 1970's crashed into the... More

On CA Hwy 1, near San Simeon, about 3 miles south of the entrance to Hearst Castle state park, is a strip with about a dozen different motels. Almost any of them must be better than Motel 6. Charges $2.99/day for a wifi connection that drops out all the time. Ice machine empty. No fridge in room. Key cards failed... More

Stayed here one night en route to Big Sur. This is an unrenovated but more or less clean property near Cambria, CA. With various discounts, I paid under $50 for the night, which was a pretty good deal for the area, though this was the off season. The staff was nice enough but don't expect much in terms of service.... More

Weekends on the Central Coast can be very expensive at most hotels in San Simeon and Cambria, in the 200 to 400 per night range. If you have pets it can add up to much more than that as many hotels charge upwards of 25 dollars per pet, per night. When we want to get to the Central Coast and... More

Staying at the Motel 6 in San Simeon is a good way to balance the cost of tours at Hearst Castle, which is located just three miles from the motel. We stayed here as a family of four in a room with two queen beds in December. The room was $62 for the night, and we had the option of... More

Dont' think because it's ranked 9/10 for San Simeon it's no good- I imagine it's quite close ratings for all the motels which are more or less next to each other by the side of the road anyway. Stayed in a few motel 6 whilst driving down the coast and all smelt of fresh paint and appeared to be relatively... More

This area of the coast is usually pretty expensive with very few budget options. I'm always travelling on a budget, so I was really happy to see a Motel 6! This one is also really nice for a Motel 6. They have a restaurant and bar on the grounds. They are also right accross the street from the beach. We... More

This motel is a great value and is in close proximity to the Hearst Castle. The rooms were clean, bright, and up to date. The interior hallways are accessed with your room key, making it feel safer than other motels without exterior hallways. The rooms do not have a clock and no shampoo or conditioner is provided.
