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

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
