Front Desk/Registration - courteous, knowledgeable, efficient, helpful Management - Above & Beyond service, constantly Housekeeping - Courteous, helpful, consistent Maintenance - unfazed, thoughtful, friendly Pismo Beach is a popular tourist destination. It can get very busy at times. My daughter chose this motel, for its proximity to a major bus hub and budget pricing. BUT --- during our stay at... More

Thought I's save a little money on my vacation and stay at Motel 6. Came to visit my family for Thanksgiving week and wanted more cash to spend on my grandchildren. Pulled into the parking lot, lots of random people walking around and hanging out in front of the guest room doors. Lobby was filthy! The ladies behind the desk... More

Hair dryer available from reception. staff were great, check in easy and good location for a night in town, or the beach. I would recommend a motel 6 over many of the more dated... More

We stayed here recently Aug 11th to 16th.We lucked out and got one of the renovated rooms on the top floor which was clean and the bathroom was clean. The reviews we read ahead of time about the beds was true, you pull back the bedspread and there was hair all over the sheets and pillow cases. That was extremely... More

Being the first time stay at a motel 6 we were very nervous about it. We figured we were getting in very late after a wedding and trying to stay on a budget. We could not have been more surprised and impressed. Very clean and everything was updated! The only downside was there was no breakfast. They did give us... More

Stayed at Motel 6 on Sunday 8/3/15. Check in was a breeze. Room was ready. I traveled with boyfriend and 2 friends. 2 full size beds did the job but queen beds would've been a little more comfortable. For a 1 night stay we were placed in room 214 facing pool on 2nd floor. Air conditioner worked great. Right next... More

We stayed here for 1 night. The accommodation was reasonably priced and the room was basic but clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and obliging. Although the motel is situated a short distance from the main street, that is reflected in the price and there are several eateries in the vicinity, some within walking distance.
