I knew it was a Motel 6 but this one in Morro Bay is ridiculous. The rooms are super tiny. Nowhere to store your suitcase. No dresser. Not even a hairdryer. And forget about a coffee machine or a microwave. It would have nice to gave them in time of Covid since there is no coffee offered in the lobby. Actually there is no lobby. You check in and out at a window. Next time, we will pay a bit more and stay somewhere that doesn’t look like a convent room.
Before we arrived, I hurt my leg...they gave us a ground floor room. God bless them. ($150 a night). We reserved two beds...but room had only one. The girl offered to move us ..but said it would cost us more. We declined. Our room was small, with no carpet - it had a phone and TV but.. no blow dryer - no iron - no coffee maker - no shampoo/conditioner - no usb plugs - no microwave - no refridgerator...not even a bible. They did give us a garbage bag when we checked-in. They told us they would give us more towels....when we returned a full set of dirty towels (in the garbage bag) to the office. We will not stay here again.
Stayed here several times over the years and its a great Motel 6 and so close to the beach and town. I will be back there soon and am really looking forward to it. Going to explore the coastal hwy one day then inland the next. Really looking forward to my three nights there.
I should start this by saying that I grew up coming to this hotel as a kid, so even as an adult, I’ve generally known what to expect when you come here. The hotel itself is very basic. Rooms are clean, updated, and pleasant if you know to expect a very small room with almost no amenities. They provide you with towels, and a bar soap, but no other toiletries besides toilet paper. Rooms are very small, and the hotel really offers no amenities except a pool (which isn’t commonly found here, so a plus for families) , a ice machine, and pretty good vending machines. No views from the rooms. No sitting area to relax, unless you count taking your chair from your room and sitting on the walkway. What it lacks in amenities, it makes up for in location if you like the beach, and to be in a quiet area. You are located just up the street from several Morro Strand beach access points, but I would recommend bringing a wagon if you’re intending to lug a lot of stuff down for a beach day. But still a good walk even if you just want to take a towel and sit out. It’s also a close walk to the walking trail bridge that connects this side of Morro Bay to the Embarcadero. It is not located close to downtown Morro Bay with the Embarcadero and all the restaurants, but nice if you just want to spend more time going down to the beach. They also allow up to two dogs to stay for free, which works out great for us because sometimes we like to bring our dogs. Also a great location if you have dogs, as there is a park behind the hotel, and a nice walk down to the beach to get them to use the bathroom. We don’t come here often, because I do like more amenities, but every once in a while it’s nice when we have the dogs, and I want to stay someplace where I can walk down to sand and walk along the beach. Don’t expect a lot from the hotel itself, but it will be clean, and the staff is very very helpful and friendly.…
We rented a room for 2 nights and it was peaceful. We were so close to the beach and could smell campfires from across the street. If you stay one weekday it gets busy after 4pm, but otherwise it was peaceful.
