I stayed here one night with my boyfriend we were on our way home from San Francisco and was going to Hearts Castle in the morning. We just needed a place to sleep & shower. The hotel was a decent budget hotel. They had complimentary coffee in the morning. The beach was walking distance, we got to enjoy a nice... More

Too expensive not worth the money not worth the stop if you need an over night stop go somewhere else, Pismo Beach better. Trapped by nothingness. Nothing in room, no attempt at making guest feel comfortable. Just wasted our money staying there. Never again at Motel 6. Spoke to other guests on our vacation they said same thing about Motel...

We stayed here on our coastal highway drive from SF to LA. The hotel was cleanand very affordable. My only complaint is that the walls were not very thick and we could hear the conversations from the next room. Thankfully our neighbors went to bed early like we did. The staff was very friendly.

It was a Motel 6. What can I say? It was clean and offered a good night's sleep at an affordable price. The scenery was beautiful. There was an on-site restaurant. We arrived late and had to eat our pizza in the bar area instead of the small dining room, but it was good and the wait staff attentive, just... More

My family and I recently took a weekend trip to San Simeon to visit Hearst Castle (which is apparently the only reason anyone stays in San Simeon), and booked a room at the Motel 6, since we'd been there about 10 years prior and found it more than adequate. However on this particular trip the room rate was nowhere near... More

In most ways this is just as any other Motel 6. Simple and affordable. If you have a room facing the parking lot you'll hear every conversation going on out there. In my case it was a loud phone conversation in Swedish at 6am. If you have a room close to the ends of the buildings you'll hear everybody going... More

The hotel is kept up, not the usual Motel 6, recently remodeled we had a double room with a fridge overlooking the pool with a view of the ocean across hiway one. The connected restaurant serves decent food. Everything was clean, the room was... More

The guy on reception was very helpful. The room was a good size as was the bathroom but it was all very basic. The soundproofing of the rooms was poor so the partying workmen next door kept as awake for some time. This motel is in real need of a renovation

I was excited to stop here and stay. Easy access to the beach, which is great for my dogs. Nice place, friendly staff. Lots of places to eat. Hearst Mansion just up the road. Beautiful views, nice sunsets ! Everything was great till my dog pulled me off balance and I fell on the bluff and broke my wrist. The... More

While it was fine, there were nicer places in the area by the beach. Unfortunately, price dictates this may be the better choice for many of us! The staff was helpful, lots of room in the parking area, and nice room. My only negative comment is that the hall carpet was dirty and garbage sacks were sitting randoming outside.
