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.

This is newly remodeled and quite modern and European. Been staying here for over 15 years and it's been through a lot of changes..mostly good. Downside...HARD AS ROCK BEDS! OUCH! If the beds were better, I would give a higher rating but I felt like I had been beaten with a stick all night!

The rooms here are really bare bones, but I didn't expect much from Motel 6. Convenient location when visiting Hearst Castle - right off the highway and close to the ocean. We didn't try to get to a beach but it looked like an easy walk once you cross the highway, which really wasn't too busy. We had dinner at... More

We just needed a place to stay during our road trip and this was one of the few options we had. Good location and clean. Few cons: Wifi charge, No fridge, and extremely orange rooms! We ended up paying 120 per room since June is such a busy season- I wouldn't recommend paying more than 100 $ for it.

Want to shower and sleep well, this is the place. Less than £40 with shops and restaurants nearby. we arrived late and checked in, very clean and comfy if a tad military. The Norwegian Bikers liked it as well!

We needed a place to stay on our road trip and this was the cheapest place in San Simeon we found online. We paid less than £40 for the night! We booked it online just minutes before arriving and found on check in the price we'd have paid had we just turned up would have been a few pounds cheaper.... More

Rooms are large, clean, and quiet. Beds are ok, they have a plastic matress protector that makes you feel in a sauna. Matress is too soft. The Restaurant charges you high price for average food. Parking is free, Internet just 3 bucks.
