I would never book a room at this motel 6 again. Gave us a dirty unclean room when we checked in relocated us to a different room and in the morning we found a bed bug crawling on our sheets. Worse motel I've ever had checked into.

This was one of the worst hotels/motels we have ever stayed in, and the price made it outrageous for this type of accommodation. One overnight here was too long. No pen, no paper, no shampoo, no tub stopper, no hairdryer, no soundproofing, no breakfast, no in-room coffee. If we had paid $50 for the night, instead of $126, perhaps I could overlook SOME of this.

Free parking, free Wi-Fi (you have to use a new password every 24 hours, supplied by front desk). Rosa at the check in counter was fabulous. Housekeeping did a good job during daily service. Convenient to restaurants. Show your room key to the attached restaurant and get 10% off - but make sure to check the bill before paying to ensure discount was applied.

Only negative spot was when I approached a male front desk clerk and explained that the Wi-Fi tech support said I needed to come up and get another Wi-Fi password, he grabbed my ROOM KEY and started to reprogram it. Failure to listen to a clear explanation explains a lot of the world's problems.

Other than that, a good experience. Pet friendly. Ice machines and vending machines in the hall at end of the rooms. Lobby was cheerful and clean. Comfortable beds. Nice cable tv selection.

Motel 6 at this location retains its reputation for value and cleanliness.

Cheapest in area, short sleep and 24h checkin was the deciding to choose this place. Also receptionist Andrea on the phone was very helpful ... shame she wasn't there for our stay;) Very basic, shower ROOM more like car wash, but clean and rather newish rooms and equipment.
No coffee or tea and only with 10% discount you can buy some in the morning ... sad really.
Location for the Hearst Castle and 24h reception is great but you have to pay extra even for Wifi!?

We have stayed here many times, usually for one or two nights, on our way to or from Big Sur. It is basic, spartan, as all hotels in this chain are, but perfectly adequate if all you want is a place to rest for one night. Yes, it lacks many things that are considered standard in other, pricier, chain motels, but it's hard to complain when you are paying budget level rates which are more than reasonable for the area. Two floors, no elevator. Rooms facing south have a better view. Some rooms have fridge/microwave. Overall a solid three star hotel.
