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

Asked for a non-smoking room but got a smoking room anyways. Then it turned out there were no non-smoking rooms. Lost out on $70. I left to another hotel after only about 2 hours. Shower was horrible, and dirty and NO TOWELS! I've stood at other Motel 6s before so I know they only provide the basic which is okay,... More

We booked our room the day before our stay due to original lodging plans cancelled for our daughter's softball tournament over the weekend. During my online reservation I seemed to have reserved the last room and it was smoking. We were desperate and on a budget seeing that all other places were asking for $200+ We called and asked to...

When I arrived in my room, there were no towels, a broken phone on the bed, the power button on the TV was pushed in and stuck, the TV remote didn't work and the carpet was dirty and smelly. At night, I noticed the pillows even smelled. The WiFi, which isn't free and I expected that at a Motel 6... More

Travelling with the whole family (7 of us) to the Oceano Beach dunes, we had reserved two non-smoking rooms but when we got there the rooms smelled of smoking very bad. I stayed at this same motel once before and didn’t have a problem, so I was surprised this time the rooms had such a bad stench. We went and... More

The gal who refunded my money deserved a star, I suppose. The room I got had a broken front door, evidence of a disaster; a party going on outside. I decided to go elsewhere. While I stood in the lobby I watched a guy come up with no car, rent a room with cash, and take a key. Another was... More

We just blew into this motel unannounced at 2 am in the middle of a long drive. We only stayed for 5 hours and all we needed was a clean, quiet, safe, cheap place to stay and it fulfilled those minimum requirements. For the price it was not what I expected, but in a good way. There wasn't a musty... More
