I had planned to stay at the Paso Robles Motel 6, but the bad reviews here scared me off. In one of those reviews, someone mentioned they'd absconded to the San Simeon location. It was 40 miles away from where I had to be during the day, but it looked great on paper and was $22 cheaper.
I was not disappointed. The view, the rooms, the staff, the Mexican restaurant across the street — the whole scene was just wonderful. The people at the front-desk were consistently friendly and fun, helping me figure out how to make it across the Pacific Coast Highway without incident, and troubleshooting an internet problem in the middle of the night over the phone. The rooms are more spacious than your average Motel 6, and the sheets less scratchy. The property has the feel of a place that's taken care of and well managed. Plus you can't beat the price: I paid $90 for a two-night stay, including internet. My dogs were welcome and comfy; we had lots of nice walks.
San Simeon is a great a place to stay in this rather expensive Central Coast wine country, and the drive to Paso Robles on the 46 is easy and beautiful — wine tastings every mile! (Not that I partook, mind you; I was driving.) I'd highly recommend this Motel 6 as a comfortable, quiet and safe place to stay any time of year.
