Coming back up north from LA to King City and stopped her for the night at 1 am and the price of 99.00 was way to expensive for the hard as a rock bed, flat pillows, to just get up at 7 am and head home.

We had a Nice stay here for one night. The staff was Nice and helpful. Requested a second floor room and got that. The room and Bathroom was clean and Nice. It was a very Nice place except the noise. There was noise nearly all night but managed too sleep through some of it.

The room was clean, the decor and furnitioning of the room and bathroom were modern, and the bed and pillows were comfortable. This was an exceptional high value experience. We...

My husband and sister and brother-in-law stayed here for 1 night to see a concert at the Madonna Inn that was a few miles away. I did my hotel research online and their rates were reasonable and reviews were good, so I booked 1 room with 2 beds. The check in was pleasant, as was the gentleman checking us in...

As we were only stopping over for the night on the way down the coast this motel suited us perfectly. We were a bit bummed that we had to pay extra for Wifi but the wifey insisted we had to have it. Bit of noise down the hallway was annoying.

First and last time I will ever stay at a Motel 6. Although the walls were recently painted, new fixtures in the bathroom and a large flat-screen tv, it still left a lot of room for improvement. When I arrived the tiny desk and the small end table had wet ring marks from drinks and on the end table there...

It was a nice place to stay for our family. The staff is friendly and outgoing, and the rooms as always are clean! Great stay for a night. Although it is located right by the Freeway, you can ask for quiet rooms.

I stayed here for an event that was in Morro Bay. Keep in mind that this location is on the far south of San Luis Obispo, and it will take you about 20 minutes to drive through to Morro Bay. Depending on traffic, it could take a bit longer. The hotel is located close to some shopping, like Target and...

It's been awhile since I've been to a Motel 6 and I must have forgot what you don't get. Our Daughter use to attend SLO so we stayed at this Motel when it first opened. Since then they have changed the rooms a little by adding wood flooring and flat TV's mounted on the wall. Both degraded the rooms in...

Stayed one night for a basketball tournament. Rooms very clean and remodeled. No carpet, hardwood floors, new furniture. Property well maintained, pool very clean. For the price during the summer we would stay again. No breakfast or free wifi but we didn't need either so it was ok. Overall a decent place.

“Want a good room? Go elsewhere. You will not sleep well. There is constant door banging and noise. Too far to walk for ice if you're a female alone. Area is sketchy.”
