Laminate floors - everything is sleek and basic and clean. I think it is smart idea to put in the laminate floors, makes cleaning and sanitizing easy. It has the typical basics of a Motel 6. There are no extra bells and whistles, but that isn't what you come to Motel 6 for, it is for the budget conscious. It...

I was in San Luis Obispo for a couple of days, and stayed at Motel 6 for one night. The room was clean and new, simple as expected, but was very quiet. Friendly and helpful staff. I had a very pleasant night of sleep there.

We chose this Motel 6 primarily for the cost. We needed a separate space for our son, and the cost of two rooms, for two nights, was wa-a-ay less than a suite at any other location. They also allowed our dog at no extra cost. The rooms were simple and clean, as expected, and the stay was very quiet. Only...

Have stayed here twice in the last couple of years and both times had a good experience. Helpful staff. Quiet rooms for the most part as trees help muffle the sound of the freeway. Rooms clean, thin walls, but expected for Motel 6. Last trip two years ago we stayed four nights, this time two nights and would stay again....

This is a fine stop-over for a night. While there was activity downstairs late, it didn't keep us up. We managed to sleep in a little, even. The place appears clean, staff polite and helpful, and checking in/out was really quick and easy. I was a little surprised not to see shampoo. Okay, really surprised. But I brought my own,...

Well, simply as it is for the chain. The counter ppl are very nice and helpful. We stopped by there for a night during the low season, so the motel aint full. The environment was very quiet. Fast check in and out. We went to the room. It doesnt seem that bad. The shower actually is pretty strong which I...

We stayed in this motel for a night as a stopover before the Pacific Coast Highway drive. The motel is right on the edge of town and a good 10mins drive away from the main restaurants, shops etc. The member of staff who checked us in was extremely friendly and helpful. We were a bit surprised to have to pay...

We arrived late in the evening and got the last room so it was impossible for them to move us to a room with clean sheets. I found the sheets rumpled, hair on them and strangely, 3 pennies lined up in a row in the middle of the bottom sheet. Their solution was to ask me to wait 15 minutes...

“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.”
