You get what you pay for. This Motel 6 is what I expected. The lobby was a little dated but the staff was very friendly. The room was basically clean but could use some attention to detail. It appears they've redone the rooms and parts of the bathroom. The shower area needs to be redone as well. We did have... More

We stopped as we were driving up the pacific coast highway. We thought the price was a little high for a motel six but since it is right across the road from the ocean location has something to do with that. Rooms look like they were redone but lobby and outdoors still seemed dated. It was clean and receptionist was... More

A while ago I said that this was one of the stars in the Motel 6 chain. Well no more. After the extensive remodel the difficulty in getting good help in this out of the way location has plummeted this site to an also ran. This time it was run away mold in the tub/shower in #124 that turned me... More

To start San Simeon area is very expensive. So to find a place to stay around $100, on a week day was a bargain. The staff was great. Coffee free. You get a 10% discount at the restaurant next to the hotel when you show your room key. The restaurant is not part of Motel 6, hence this is not... More

We found this low-priced motel and wondered if it would be a good deal for the money, and it sure was. We loved the pool and the restaurant in the lobby. The proximity to Hearst Castle was a plus. We'll definitely stay here again.

When I plan a trip I'm very methodical and discerning. I plan the route, the places to stop to eat, restrooms, sites to see along the way, etc. Well on our trip to Yosemite our adult son said he wanted to see Hearst Castle. He had never been there. Okay, I guess we could extend vacation by 2 days and... More

I chose this motel for its price and that it looked really clean. I didn't have high expectations. In the middle of the night I heard a crinkling sound. After trying to get back to sleep several times and turning lights on and off, I finally saw the source. A MOUSE was eating a cookie that I planned to have... More

If you plan on visiting the San Simeon area, plan far in advance and do not use this hotel unless you are desperate. Reminded me of a college dorm room. Mattress was like a marshmallow. No amenities at all. The shower smelled of mildew. The tub was disgusting. We laid a towel on the shower floor to avoid touching the... More

This hotel was clean but no frills. No coffee maker in the room, no fridge, no hair dryer, no clock, no shampoo just soap. We had to go get more towels as we had 2 for 3 people. The area was a little noisy with people in the parking lot and walls are thin, could hear people talking, coughing but... More

This was the only hotel available for us as we wanted to stay some where that was mid-way and near Hearst Castle. This hotel is 2 star at best and extremely overpriced. We paid just under $300 for 3 adults. The room had cockroaches and was very noisy, you could hear people coming and going at all hours. Water pressure... More
