“Nice surprise”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

After my last stay at a Motel 6 I swore I would never stay at one again; however, we were in town for the Cal Poly graduation and one star hotels were charging $250+. I figured we would only be in the hotel to sleep so I booked it. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The people who worked there could not have been friendlier. We even had of view of Morrow Rock from our room and were very close to the beach. This is a motel 6--no Kleenex, no shampoo, no hair dryer, no pictures on the wall etc. If you spend time in the room and are looking for luxury, this is NOT the place. If you are looking for a clean, relatively inexpensive place to sleep this IS the place!

It's a place to crash for the night, nothing more. Conveniently located off Pacific Coast Highway and it's inexpensive. That's the good news. You do get what you pay for. The rooms are very basic and very small. Not even a picture on the wall...which is OK since it's all about sleeping. But other things do matter to me: Beds are on the soft side for my taste. Shower had leak from room above. No coffee in room and not served in office until 7am. No food of any sort available at hotel or within easy walking distance.

All in all, I wouldn't stay here again.

Motel 6 may not be the best motel to stay at, but for the price its hard to beat. When we go to Morro Bay its all about the beach and the food, not to pay a high price for a motel. Everyone at Motel 6 has been great when were there. They have a pool which a few Motels in Morro Bay dont have, and they cost more than Motel 6. If you need internet let them know because only a few rooms can recieve it.The showers are nice and the rooms are always very clean. We stay at Motel 6 in Morro Bay everytime they have a room available, we try to go at least 2 to 4 times a year.

Room Tip: It you want a view of Morro Rock then ask for south west side, up stairs is best.

this location is ok, it is walking distanse to the beach, and does have a view of morro rock!!

the rooms are your typical motel 6 rooms no thrills and no frills,, Just a place to lay your head at the end of the day!!, while the building could use a fresh paint job, and the walk ways in dire need of a good power wash! ovel all it is decent place,

the rooms are clean , very freindly employess, that are very knowledgeble,

To the folks who arent filmilar with the motel 6 chain, motel is a budget, motel with no thrills no frills, you dont get 1000 thread count sheets, expensive bed linen, coffee maker, shampoo, or big fluffy towels , clock radio or even flat screen tv's,the things you get at a five star hotel, but best of all of the chain is they are PET FREINDLY< WITH NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE, again this is a budget motel not the RITZ, so if you dont mind not having all the extras, then this chain is just fine, but if you require all the exteras then go some where else!!,

Room Tip: choose second floor for views of the rock

Im not a real big fan when it comes to Motel 6 but it was sorta a last min stay because we were at the Morro Bay Beer festival. The price was ok. Room was decently clean....overall I'm not sure I'd stay here again.

I stayed here recently in one of the upstairs units. I like the price and that we could bring our dog without additional pet fee, but room was dirty and stunk with cigarettes. Apparently the room was no smoking, but when I let the front desk agent know that somebody must have smoked in that room before she didn't seem to be surprised at all! Well - they even have ashtrays with no smoking signs in NO SMOKING rooms! Bed sheets had stains on and had burn holes from cigarettes too. I must say that the shower was a nice surprise. The pressure was great and it all seemed surprisingly clean. If you are looking for a quiet location forget about this one. In the end with tax our stay was $ 75 for that price you really can find something better and cleaner.

Room Tip: if you have to stay here choose upstairs units away from the stairs
