We will not stay at this property again. While we were ostensibly in a non-smoking room, the entire room absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke. (We stayed three nights and it never did air out despite my efforts.) It seems management is ok with this, because there was a hotel-provided ashtray in the room, with a rather contradictory "no smoking" symbol...

stayed here before - FYI, the inside rooms are quieter. The mattress was BETTER than what I have at home - I should have stripped the sheets to see the brand. Nice people at the desk. Take 4th down to Pismo and the beach.

Very busy location in July. Staff was very helpful x patient with busy lobby. Great Value! Quick access to town x beach. Will stay here again. No big issues. Dennys next door. Freeway access. Staff took time to give me tips on local restaurants x things to do etc.

The Motel 6 in Pismo Beach is acceptable for the price. We stayed here without making a prior reservation and paid about $55 with tax. The room was small and dated but not dirty. The bathroom had soap but nothing else. The premises seemed less sketchy than other Motel 6 locations I've come across. It's close to the freeway and...

Because I'm always traveling with dogs (so it seems), I tend to stay at Motel 6s, because of being able to not have to pay pet fees and try to explain to them with certified therapy/service dogs you are NOT suppose to by law pay fees. This Motel 6 was right up there as one of the nastier ones. When...

I would not recommend this hotel. From The smokey room to the dirty floors, and really dirty matresses. I am not sure even where to end. I was very dissatisfied. I would not recomedn this to anyone. I paid 115.00 a night to stay here and had dogs in the room next door barking. HORRIBLE. Sleepless in Pismo Beach Califiornia!

Stayed one night and found the place to be the worst hotel we stayed at on our 4 weeks in the USA. Check in was very slow, the lady was very loud and hard to understand. she was busy though. The room was just OK, needed an upgrade but was clean enough. You have to pay for wifi, other similar...
