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...

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,...

We pulled into motel 6 in San Simeon to get out of the torrential downpour that we were driving in on our way up the coast. Our room was clean and had 2 beds and cable TV. We were traveling with our teenage daughter, so we paid for the premium WiFi, which was 4.99 for 24 hours. They gave us...

This is a chain group. This hotel between San Francisco and LA is a great stop over to break the drive up. This was the cheapest motel we stayed in and is great value for the basic bead and shower. It was clean and had everything you needed free parking and restaurants nearby.

I had never stayed at a Motel 6 before. The room was far more pleasant and comfortable than we expected, although without many amenities. Make sure you bring your own toiletries. You do have to go up some stairs to get to all rooms. Given the location of this hotel I would consider the price to be a bargain. Because...

It has been awhile since I last stayed at a Motel 6. It was in San Diego,10-12 years ago. I remember it as an acceptable alternative. Last friday, Nov. 11th, I decided to go the beach. I was sick and tired of the election and pissed off at workers who voted for Trump and regretted it. I was debating whether...

Very basic but bearably clean. Was Adequate for a single night stop. Convenient restaurant located on the premises. Friendly front office staff. Good location on the Pacific Highway (Hwy-1) near Hearst Castle. $120 price is on the high side for what is on offer.

Although this area is beautiful, the hotels aren't. For the price you pay in this area you get bare minimum. The hotel is very basic. You park in the rear and must descend stairs with your luggage to make your way to your room. The hallways are dimly lit and uninviting. The room is no frills. The towels are hotel...
