I ended up staying at Motel 6 San Simeon by accident. I had planned to travel to Big Sur from San Francisco and it only struck me as I was about to begin a tour at Hearst Castle that I hadn't booked a hotel for the night (I was trying to be spontaneous). The Motel 6 came up on a... More

We visited the Hearst Castle and came down and checked into this hotel. Nice staff, very friendly, clean room, comfortable bed...but again...the Motel 6 wifi worked not well at all. We would be on it for 3 minutes and we would get booted out. Again, I think it is important if motels can't guarantee perfect wifi they should say so.... More

We stayed at this motel during our visit to the Cambria region and Hearst Castle attractions. It is economically a good way to have a large clean room basically furnished that is within easy commute to the region. We stayed here a few years ago and it was good to see that it has had a refurbishment. Paint and furnishings... More

Some of the less-than-great reviews for this place crack me up. It’s a Motel 6 people. For $60 a night, I got a large clean room more or less across the street from the ocean. In fact – my particular room had a little sliver of an ocean view. For $60. If you’re looking for world class service and luxury... More

We had visitors from New York and wanted them to see Hearst Castle. We booked this motel for 2 nights. Derrick at the front desk was most helpful and assisted us in booking a Motel 6 in Monterey. We had a very comfortable/roomy room and the coffee in the am was great. We also travel with a puppy and she... More

We stayed here because we were visiting San Simeon. We love Motel 6 - clean, cheap (if you book ahead), postage sized swimming pools - more like plunge pools! We had a massive room with sea views and slept v well. Beautiful area.

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!
