A complete remodel since my last visit a year ago. Very nicely done. Faux wood floors make it for a clean appearance. Walls are all freshly painted and furniture nicely selected to weather the normal abuse of travelers who are prone to not treating the room as their own. Bath counter and sink also new while the shower has been... More

Planned to camp but only made it one night in a tent without bathroom/showers (turned off at local campsites because of the drought) Checked in here last minute-prices were much cheaper in person than they were listed online a few weeks before, which I was very grateful for, The room was very modern looking, clean, comfortable. We had an ocean... More

This was an acceptable bare-bones place for a one-night stay when visiting Hearst Castle, cheaper than surrounding hotels. Make reservations; it was full on a Saturday night in August. We requested a wake-up call for 7:30 A.M. through the automated system on the phone and got one at 2:30 A.M. instead, so we kept waking up fearing we wouldn't get... More

Stayed last night for one night glad I made a reservation. Check in was quick and staff is friendly and helpful. The new rooms with laminate flooring and brighter colors make what should be a very positive review right? I guess I just dont get that you can get almost high rack rate $199 and not even have shampoos/toiletries etc.... More

Wow since the remodel of this Motel 6, it is hard to believe it, most of my experience with Motel 6 are marginal at best, but this location is great, I have stayed here in the past, but it was so much better on this stay, 2 nights, nice view, nice staff, despite that they have to deal with tons...

We booked this motel a couple of hours before we arrived there in the evening and were glad we did so, because upon arrival there was a line of tourists all asking about a room, but they were all booked. The room was clean and spacious with two double beds. We only used one. The sink was not in the... More

As can be expected, bare bones but clean, close to Hearst Castle, restaurant on the premises. Good for one night stay, quality of beds below average. Friendly staff. Close to the beach for a nice stroll.

This was the first stop on our vacation. I was pleasantly suprised as we pulled in. the place looked modern enough, and the beach was right across the highway. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Slightly put off by having to pay for WiFi. Cell service is not good at the hotel, so without wifi, you were out of... More

Didn't expect much from this Motel since we were there for a quick over night on our way north, arrived late night and left early in the morning. The staff was friendly but the premises felt empty. The rooms were large yet the bed mattresses were not comfortable. The price was VERY affordable compared to others in the area.
