I was really surprised with this motel. I was just in town for one night while visiting Hearst Castle so I opted to stay at the Motel 6 as it was the most inexpensive option and I know they allow pets without having to pay a fee. This was one of the nicest experiences I've had staying at a motel... More

We stayed 2 nights in a “modern, micfridge” room with 2 queen beds. The room was nice enough, with laminate wood flooring (which feels cleaner than typical, lower end rooms with carpeting). There was a vanity with 3 drawers, 2 open shelves, enough sitting room in between for 2 people, and a long top with a 32” LCD screen --... More

First time staying at a Motel 6, and it was a pleasant experience. We stayed two nights for our visit to Hearst Castle and the surrounding area. Our room is modern with hardwood floors, but the public areas look outdated. Our large room had two comfy queen beds, TV with HBO, microwave and mini fridge. Ample desk space and a... More

After having a terrible stay at a different Motel 6 on our same road trip, I was hesitant about going to this one. But this hotel and the previous one were night and day! The front desk staff were very welcoming to us and our dog (we booked this especially for the dog friendly hotel on a budget). We were... More

This hotel is very nice, recently remodeled and some rooms have a partial ocean view. The beds are comfortable and the hotel is quite. There are many expensive rooms at the coast and the more affordable rooms, seem to have remained the same since 1985, not this hotel. Hardwood floors help with all the sand and updated bathroom feels more... More

Was very happy with the accommodations at Motel 6. It is a dog friendly motel with clean rooms. Was really happy with the price and pet policy (no extra deposit/cleaning fee). Will use this motel if in the area again.

There are Motel 6's and Motel 6's. The facility in San Simeon village on the California central coast is large, clean, comfortable and quiet. Parking is in back, well off the street, and you can easily choose an upstairs room (which may be slightly more quiet).

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
