If you have to stay in King City, or anywhere in the general area, this is probably the best option (otherwise go to Paso Robles). I am working in the area and checked out all the motels, and this one is a lot better than the name brands.
The best rooms are the King size, upstairs in the main building, with an interior corridor. These rooms are very large and have a desk and small couch that folds out into a bed. The beds are new, very comfortable, and have good quality blankets. The fridge is medium size and can fit food for several days. The TV is a good quality flat screen with a bunch of channels. The rates were very good compared to the other places in town. The rooms are very well cleaned. Internet worked well throughout this building.
The owners are extremely accommodating. I had a problem with room fragrance, and for two nights prior to my stay they refrained from spraying air freshener, and when that didn't correct the problem they let me have my choice of several rooms. They are very friendly and helped me carry my things upstairs. The hot tub was broken last week, but it is fixed now.
This side of the highway (west) appears to be a lot safer than everything on the east side of the highway. According to the local paper, gangs are a huge problem here. This side of the highway only has a nice neighborhood, a couple convenience stores (Starbucks) and a bunch of open dirt. I would stay away from everything except the shopping mall on the other side of the hwy.
The cons of this motel are outdated bathrooms. There is no countertop to put your things. The shower worked fine, good pressure, and was clean. The highway is loud but with the fan running I could not hear it. The workers who are staying below me are obnoxious pigs who drink in the lot for an hour after work, but at least it seems like this isn't the kind of motel that people live in. I don't know what the rooms in the other building are like - they said they are smaller and maybe they are the smoking rooms. The "breakfast" is OJ, coffee, bananas and wrapped danish.
