what a dump, third world accomodations in California, why go to TJ and hassle the border. no carpet, loud AC with no settings, no shampoo, no blow dryer, no wi-fi, it is $2.99 extra and no other low end hotel gives so little. the box my fridge came in had more class. avoid-one star too many-go onto next town and pay more. Tom Bodette you should be ashamed!

We needed to stay in Santa Maria for a weekend but when we went to make reservations at the Santa Maria Inn, Holiday Inn. and the Radisson they were already sold out as were many other hotels in Santa Maria. We then decided since we just needed a place to sleep and would be busy during the day we'd better just stay at this Motel 6. It wasn't that bad either. It was simple and adequate located next door to the Holiday Inn (which has a restaurant & a bar). This is a no frills type of place, no refrigerator in the room and make sure you bring your own, shampoo, lotion and tissues. They have bath soap and toilet paper, bath towels, a flat screen, a bed, ice machine on the premises, coffee in morning in the front office and a pool. I know the area so the neighborhood isn't bad either. You need to ask yourself this question: Do I just need a nice enough place to sleep , watch a bit of TV & take a shower? Then this place will do fine. My only complaint was that it was over $150.00 per night when the asking price for the better hotels in the area were actually lower on this particular weekend, but I guess that was our fault for not making reservations way in advance somewhere else. The stall was very pleasant to us so no complaints here.

1) STUNK 2) 1st floor you will hear everything. We got the joy of staying under inconsiderate guests who stayed up all night dragging bags, stomping, sliding chair, & slamming doors. Got no sleep. 3) stains on bedding and pillowcases. 4) upgrade means no fridge, coffee pot or microwave. Crappy A/C units. 5) NO coffee until 7. 6) door jams are jacked with metal shards & ripped my shirt. 7) The toilet is really squatty and belongs in a kindergarten class. If you have knee problems good luck getting up. 8) charge $3 for WiFi. 9) Beds are old and uncomfortable. Never, ever would I stay here again.

Room Tip: Reconsider staying here even if it is for 1 night.

Experience - Disgusted. For $160 its the hardest I've been screwed ever.
Amenities - That's easy. None. No shampoo, conditioner.
Air conditioning broken.
Noisy.
Want some ice? Nearly a city block walk to the ice machine, the only one is next to the office.
Just filthy. Again, probably the worst I've ever seen. I should have slept in my car.

Were were told our room was non smoking but smelled strong of smoke and there were 3 ashtrays in the room. The desk clerk said they had no other rooms but offered us room spray Freeway noise kept us from opening window for air and was still loud with windows closed. Someone knocked on our door four times looking for someone else Room was clean but spartan and towels/sheets rather worn. We did not get low rates because we had to find a place on a weekend. Paid $166 for one night. Nope, not again.
