We stayed here for just the one night in passing. The service checking in and out was amazing! So helpful to the point where I didn't need to ask anything and everything had been covered. We were given one of the newly refurbished rooms which was basic but clean and minimalistic. It was very spacious, almost echoey! There was a... More

We had reservations here, but we actually didn't stay the night. On the positive side, the ONE person they had working that day was very friendly, although spread way too thin. The motel has undergone some remodeling, and you can tell an effort has been made to make it look nice. The bad stuff: very sketchy neighborhood. Several homeless milling... More

The new Motel 6 rooms are very nice. The rooms look better than some higher franchises like Holiday Inn. Very clean and comfortable. The management were real helpful, in providing us with our needs. The location is right off the freeway. Denny's and Jack In The Box are right next to the motel. The swimming pool was very clean and... More

Stayed here one night only and was pleased to see that our room was brand new, probably we were the first guests. It was a fresh room with a refrigerator and aircon. The only minus was that it lacked shampoo/conditoner. Also, it was a bit expensive given its location.

I've been staying at this hotel the same couple of nights a year for over twenty years, and the price was always reasonable. Sometimes it was even as low as $40 or $50 a night. Now this year the price increased to $150 a night, but the hotel itself hasn't had any luxurious upgrades to validate the price increase. There... More

There are signs all over the lobby informing guests that the motel is undergoing remodeling. I highly recommend staying anywhere else until that happens. Rips in the drapes, stains on the ceilings and floors, bathroom hasn't been updated since the 60's and a wooden toilet seat with the paint chipping off. I could go on but you get the drift.... More

As far as your Motel 6 room goes it fits the bill. I always cringe when I think of having to stay in a Motel 6, so I usually steer away. I option for spending a bit more $ but getting better amenities. I booked this thru Priceline as I was driving to Hearst Castle for business and needed an... More

I rated the Rose Garden Inn in Santa Maria average when compared to other hotels in the area that are way over priced. It was apparent that this location had not been updated in years. The outdoor pool was not heated and the hot tub had been removed rether than maintained. The shower, although clean, was still a small walk... More
