This area is popular and hotel/motels fill up quickly. Spent 2 nights at this motel 6 and was a bit surprised at how expensive it was...Over $100/night. We arrived pretty late and all the paperwork was ready for us (Thank You Heather!). The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The facility is dated, no hair dryer or... More

. It look ok from the outside until you walked in the office it smelled like smoke. When u walk in the room it looked clean and smelled nice, but when you took a second look . The bedding was dirty and stained . My friend got bug bits on her arm and back. Lots of construction guys . They... More

This motel is the cheapest in the area, offering only the minimal necessities (e.g., soap, towels, clothes hangers, etc.), but no microwave, hair dryer, iron, etc. Cleanliness is so so (not bad if you are not pedantic). So OK if you just stop to take a nap, wash up and continue on your way. During the night you can hear... More

Was driving north late at night and just needed a place to rest overnight. Eric at registration was very polite and friendly, even late at night. Wanted a room close to my car which I received-it was an "accessible room" but that was okay because I was given the option of taking that room close to parking or another room.... More

You get what you pay for. All we needed clean to a certain standard and looked like an ikea showroom with less stuff. Would only suggest one night here perhaps if you are just passing through like we were.

We clearly had one of the newly refurbished rooms. Very clean ,very pleasant. No charm but we stopped in Santa maria to break up our drive and were not expecting much. Free coffee in the morning. The wi-fi was rubbish and I had to keep returning to the front desk for new codes before giving up. I slept fine and... More

Ho-hum: After staying very happily recently in two of the newer Motel 6's (like the more expensive one in Santa Barbara), my spending a night here was like going back in time to the bad old days of this national budget chain. I had a very spartan room with no place to hang clothes, a shower with no tub, a... More

Stayed here last because I did not want to take a 2 1/2 hour drive home. Motel 6 has done some renovations. Laminate flooring throughout, instead of nasty carpeting. A big plus. Hot water when you shower,comfortable and clean bedding. Everything so far a plus, except the shower. Ever seen a superman movie, where he would jump into a phone... More

We just stayed here for one night while driving highway 1 but really liked it actually. Staff were friendly and the rooms are new, very clean and nice. The only real downside is that they charge for wifi.

We came to town for a family event and stayed here as the reviews weren't awful and the price seemed right. Most the other hotels in the area were much more expensive (now we know why). I didn't come in with unreasonable expectations....in fact the room itself as I mentioned was upgraded and clean and the staff seemed friendly. However,... More
