“As expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We came on Saturday night. The place was totally crowded and it was very noisy around 6 pm. We were really afraid that we wouldn't get any sleep so we went first to get something to eat, then see some movies and came back late night expecting all the having loud parties and drinking. We were very surprised that everybody was quiet and calm.
The bed were really nice - firm.
The place is clean and you get what you pay for :)))) Just the walls are so thin, it seems like the're not there ;)

The service was friendly. The room was spartan but clean and refurbished. It. Was away from the roads so it was very quiet. This is your basic mole room but well worth it if you want to save a few $$$ Thenrkje is a Denny's next door with free wi-fi and a 10 percent discount for motel guests

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back away from the roads to get quiet

this motel 6 is in a very good location, very close to the pismo outlets, and just a few minutes drive to downtown/ beach

the motel is a ,no frills no thrills, just a basic room, very clean, and reasonably priced, with a knowledgeble staff,, but best of all they are pet freindly with additional charges , a rare find these days!!

there is plenty to eat near by along with a denny's next door!!

Went to Pismo Beach, CA for a few days, Jan 10-13, 2013. Reserved a room on the internet and got a very nice room. My wife is confined to a three wheel electric scooter and the handicap room provided plenty of room for her. The wheel in shower was fantastic. The bed was very comfortable. The channel selection on the tv could be better, but we didn't go over there to stay in the room. From an economy standpoint, it was a great value. Our room did not have a room air conditioner. It was elsewhere in the building, so there was almost no noise from the heater or A.C.

We have stayed at this Motel 6 a few times. They are close to the beach, don't charge for small dogs and have a Dennys within walking distance. There is nothing fancy about it, but if you're there just for a clean place to clean-up and sleep, it's just fine. They also have a nice lighted area for walking dogs.
If you're there for shopping, the outlet mall is only about a block away.

We will not stay at this property again.

While we were ostensibly in a non-smoking room, the entire room absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke. (We stayed three nights and it never did air out despite my efforts.)

It seems management is ok with this, because there was a hotel-provided ashtray in the room, with a rather contradictory "no smoking" symbol on the bottom of it.

Also, after our first night our room never got cleaned.

The one upside was the very friendly and professional desk clerk who was there when we checked in.

If cigarette smoke doesn't bother you and you're just looking for a low-end place to crash, this is an ok choice. Rooms are small, bedding and towels are sparse. But the water pressure in our shower was great.

Room Tip: Inside rooms are quieter.

Not much to describe...you get what you pay for.....very small rooms, paper thin beds.....rooms were clean...easily accessible from highway 101. I would not stay again....my vehicle would have provided more comfort...
