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

This is a tough one. We were in town for our nephew's wedding & it was spectacular. Rating - the flooring was nice - wood not carpet however it's a very spartan room with very limited furnishings. Personally I hate living out of a suitcase even for an overnight stay but for a weekend stay it's beyond difficult. Considering the... More

I had to stay here for Cal Poly graduation because everything was sold out around and near SLO.So for over 100.00 you have to purchase your own shampoo in the vending machine near the office.Stains on the new sheets and new bedspread in the newly refurbished rooms.The funniest part was when I went to turn on the shower they have...

I stayed with this motel 6 multiple days for 3 months, sleeping during the day due to working at night. Everyone working there was wonderful, very helpful with everything I needed. I always received the AARP rate if I stayed less than 7 days in a row, or the discounted rate if 7 or more days in a row. I... More
