We were excited because this was the first place that had an ice machine and buckets... perfect for our carton of milk that had been with us since Pismo Beach! This was perfectly adequate. Clean, secure, predictable quality and reasonable service. We requested a no smoking room however when the room had clearly been used by a smoker who had... More

This is really a bare bones 3 star motel. Do not expect any more than this and it is an OK place to spend the night. I had read the reviews on this and some other sights about this Motel 6 and was concerned about the homeless people in the parking lot, the towels so stiff you could use for... More

Though I didn't have an issue checking in, it seemed several others did. The Front desk staff were quite unprofessional and lackadaisical. However, the security guard was totally strange. My son was driving a very unique restomod Cadillac and we expect questions about it. But this dude started asking personal questions NOT related to the car or security. It totally... More

Due to an event going on in town, I ended up staying here. Room was ok. Bed was tidied up but not as comfortable as I expected. No comp water like other small hotel/motels, my room was overlooking on a huge dumpster that have an overflowing trash, room smells a.little bit muggy. Front desk wasn't that accomodating when ask if... More

we drove around the neighboring towns for a while looking for reasonable hotels. Could not find any under $140. After stopping at each hotel we found this place online and just drove to Ventura and stopped in. There was a large line of cars trying to check in so we thought it would be okay. Pictures of the rooms were... More

Had no experience with riff-raff hanging around or rude desk workers. Very dog friendly. Easy in, easy out, plenty of ice. Easy parking, some freeway noise but windows do not open so AC drowned it out. If you are on vacation, it's not luxury, but if you are looking for a safe, clean place to sleep, it's fine.

I checked in last night and right when I pulled in, I realized I made a mistake. FYI this area is surrounded by hotels and I would have paid an extra $40 to stay somewhere better. The exterior is dingy and faces the freeway. The staff was adequate and so are the rooms. Nothing fancy. Only pro is that this... More

Stayed here for one night.. Right on highway east to find,I did feel when I entered that the staff at desk were not very welcoming and felt unsafe as homeless are standing around outside.. You would wonder why they would be outside the hotel as it's practically on the highway and usually they stay in more downtown areas.. I felt... More

Terrible place to stay mostly because of the front desk reception workers' attitudes. They were AWFUL.. RUDE, went out of their way to be ugly and to make sure they did not provide any help at all when asked. When asked if they had any paper towels and window cleaner to clean sap from their trees that got on our... More

We stayed in room 125 at this motel for three nights and would not recommend staying there to anybody. The room was dirty and we only had one towel for the two of us. The towel itself was dirty, the chair was broken the TV did not work properly and so on. By far the worst experience however was that... More
