“clean / above average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

The rooms are above average, seemed newly renovated, clean, and no carpet - wow! - very convenient !!! and in the bath no wasting of water in this desert region....but unfortunately it was awfully loud from unbehaving motel guests getting more and more drunk... peeing over the balcony......until we finally reported to the office and they sent them in.... staff refunded that night! Sadly that the office clerc missed to make our reservation until our preferred day, so we had to leave instead of stay.

Room Tip: take the rooms in the back, further away from the main street

Good for a stop on the road. Insides of rooms are recently renovated and room was clean. A quick drive to food options. Good for the price. Glad to have a second floor room away from the highway. Be aware that rooms on the back get noise from the neighboring car dealership in the morning.

Motel 6 is always a good place too stay at. This place is friendly. Clean, secure. I always stay here when going thru San Luis Ob. Good for the price. Near stores n restaurants. If u are a single woman they will ask u if u want a upstairs room which is good.

This motel 6 looks like it was just renovated. The rooms are clean, no carpet (yeah!). The shower is really cool! Almost European! Clean and modern. The motel seems safe maybe cuz there was a cop in the parking lot.

I recently stayed at the motel 6, (the "north" location) in SLO. I was there for the weekend with my mother to see our family. My check in was very smooth, and welcoming. The young girl working the desk, Tanya was very helpful. Any question we had about SLO she could answer promply. My room was clean and comfortable. Even though there was not much offered I'm glad they had coffee in the morning. I'll stay here again thats for sure

This is just like every other Motel 6, clean, good bed, no hassle, and good value in the high price area I was staying in in California to golf.
the front desk clerk Samuel is a really super helpful guy. I stayed at this hotel two days and I think he is here 24/7 and goes out of his way to help you.
I did not experience any of the highway noise others have put in their reviews and do not understand how this could be said about this location as it is a long way to the 101. There is another Motel 6 close to this one that is right on the 101.
this one any room is fine and you will not hear anything except your own snoring.

Room Tip: I would recommend you stay on the second floor if you don't mind the climb up the stairs. You w...

Price was right( don't forget promo code online!). Staff is friendly, smooth transaction. Rooms were clean. Even though the pool is "solar" heated, our family went in it the beginning of October. We've been told that we are "tough". Water was cold, but felt good after sunning outside for a while. Not too much to choose from to walk your dog. There's a small grassy area behind the motel and there's some grass in front of the car dealership next door. It's surprisingly quiet here. We thought it'd be noisy by the 101 and having a car dealership on one side & a tire store on the other, but it wasn't!

Room Tip: avoid the rooms in back, gets noisy with the semis
