I stayed there with a friend after driving on the Coast from Monterey all the way to San Luis Obispo. Location is convenient (tip: 2 minutes away from Whole Foods if you're on a roadtrip about needs to stock up!!). Room is ok, nothing amazing, but nothing terrible. Couple of things to keep in mind: - You need to pay...

To me, Motel 6 is a crap shoot. Sometimes they're great, sometimes they leave quite a bit to be desired. I would say this is somewhere in between but I wouldn't stay here again. I'm cheap and don't expect a whole lot when I knowingly book the cheapest hotel in town, but in the future, I will spend a few...

The room looked just like the pics! Very contemporary & new. Great price for a family of 4. Super clean, quiet, and near shopping & eateries! (Just a quick drive down the street) Staff was very nice & accommodating. The only downside was that there is a $2.99 charge per 24 hrs for Wi-Fi. Lots of parking (free) and nice,...

I've read some less than stellar reviews of this M6, but decided to judge for myself as it was, frankly, half the cost of the "nice" hotels. I drove 4 hours to arrive and checked in to my guaranteed reservation at midnight. No hassle, easy check in. They were booked up, and the clerk told the woman ahead of me...

Good for a stop on the road. Insides of rooms are recently renovated and room was clean. A quick drive to food options. Good for the price. Glad to have a second floor room away from the highway. Be aware that rooms on the back get noise from the neighboring car dealership in the morning.

Motel 6 is always a good place too stay at. This place is friendly. Clean, secure. I always stay here when going thru San Luis Ob. Good for the price. Near stores n restaurants. If u are a single woman they will ask u if u want a upstairs room which is good.

This motel 6 looks like it was just renovated. The rooms are clean, no carpet (yeah!). The shower is really cool! Almost European! Clean and modern. The motel seems safe maybe cuz there was a cop in the parking lot.
