“Nice Motel 6”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We didn't want to spend over $200 per night for a room which the neighboring hotels were charging so we decided on Motel 6. It was CLEAN and REMODELED. Decent bed but the pillows could be more fluffier. Liked the laminent wood floors. Bathroom has granite counter. Make sure you bring your own shampoo/conditioner, lotion and hairdryer. No iron as well. They offer two small soaps only. Located off the 101 freeway. Easy access and safe environment. The front desk staff was pleasant and informed us that there's free coffee in the morning. Our dog even enjoyed our one night stay here. If you're looking for a place to sleep, choose this location.

Room Tip: Get a room on the second floor so you won't hear anyone walking above you.

Was very pleased with my stay here. Super clean room, easy check-in, pleasant staff, and a great location close to restaurants and freeway. Clean pool and nice landscaping. Just a short drive to the beaches and fun things to do in the area. Would be happy to stay here again.

We stayed here 2 nights on a business trip. First of all, the setting of the grounds is beautiful. I know it's Motel 6 and there are no frills. The bed was awful. There was only a mattress and no box springs. It was so soft that we could not sleep well at all. If these are remodeled rooms then I would have hated to see them before. There is no carpet. We were afraid to walk across the floor without shoes. There were not enough towels. Also, the one frill is coffee in the lobby. The clerk was too busy watching a movie to make sure the coffee was made and acted put out when we asked for some. Miserable stay.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

Good basic accommodations, clean, and a tranquil setting at the end of a road that felt safe. A better quality Motel 6 experience! Note this is the South SLO location. Fine place to stay just to spend the night. And dogs are welcome.

I got to the hotel and the staff was very polite. Check-in was easy and my room was just a few doors down. Not bad. The pool area was clean and a nice view of a goat farm behind the hotel too. A really good restaurant was just right around the corner as well. the room was very clean & the shower was top notch. The bed & sheets were comfy too. Overall, I liked this hotel for a one night stay.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the pool are quieter.

First keep in mind there is South and North Motel 6 only a couple blocks apart. Motel 6 South has been remodeled and looks newer and I rate it very clean. The pool looks like it's kept very nice. Be prepared for no extras or frills. No shampoo, hair dryer, safe, microwave or fridge. Just a clean room, so if on a budget this one is right for you. I should give it at least a 4 rating, but missed the little things. The only thing I disliked was the bed. It must have a plastic mattress cover and it makes noise every time you move. I'm a very lite sleeper and besides my wife, I could hear my kid in the next bed when she moved. This is not a bad place, so just be prepared for no frills.

Laminate floors - everything is sleek and basic and clean. I think it is smart idea to put in the laminate floors, makes cleaning and sanitizing easy.

It has the typical basics of a Motel 6. There are no extra bells and whistles, but that isn't what you come to Motel 6 for, it is for the budget conscious.

It is in a good location and close to restaurants. Friendly staff as well.
