This location was fairly typical for what you would expect of a Motel 6. The bed was comfortable and the linens and towels were clean. We always check the beds for bedbugs at any motel we stay at and our room had no evidence of bedbug infestation that we could find. The floors in the room are faux wood, which... More

I got to the motel after dark. There were not many rooms available. It was not cheap as the demand was high and it was the height of the tourist season. The front desk was pleasant and directed me to a parking area as close as possible to the room. The room was plenty large for a single user and... More

The price was good for the area but I would not stay there again. The service was lousy, from the lady at the front desk when had problems with the tv in the room and also when we checked in. I had to reclean the room and it was very noisy at night and had difficulty sleeping. Never again!

This was a very basic room, but was clean. Nice location and good car park on-site. Free coffee in the morning, but no kettle or fridge in room. Good pool area for the kids. Staff were friendly enough.

Start with the pros - place was reasonably clean (unless you look under the bed, or behind the toilet, and then you'll find things you'd rather not see) and staff was courteous. On the down side, the room lacks almost EVERYTHING that any normal cheep motel will give you for free. Internet? Pay additional $3 per device. Refrigerator? $5. At... More

I hadn't stayed in a Motel 6 in many years, but this one was definitely in need of a refresh. The mattresses were hard as a rock, and furniture and fixtures outdated. The breakfast buffet was terrible - order from the menu instead. On the plus side, the staff was all very friendly, the parking lot and grounds were in... More

Very beautiful ocean between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Many tourists. Therefore Motels (hotels) are very expensive. We found a Motel 6 in San Simeon with a great price. Easy access off the street and good parking. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean and secure. Thank you.

Not good, it´s a simple hotel. Not very clean, cold atmosphere. Even $89 seems expensive for what it was. Wifi extra charge. The first contact with the staff (a lady) was terrible, but another guy fixed her bad treatment and he was helpful and friendly. It works only for one night stop, while driving the Big Sur. But right in... More

My friend and I really enjoyed our stay and will return there again. The motel had the feel of a more expensive facility. The staff were friendly and made us feel welcomed. The restaurant next door had great food and service.

Couldn't find a room for one night near Cambria so took a chance on this Motel 6 in San Simeon. An old Holiday Inn apparently. Newly remodeled, painted, and floors (thank goodness no carpet). Spartan but immaculate. New bathroom fixtures, good internet. The best thing was the office/ desk employees....couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Went out of their... More
