“Good value and location - great staff”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

This is just like every other Motel 6, clean, good bed, no hassle, and good value in the high price area I was staying in in California to golf.
the front desk clerk Samuel is a really super helpful guy. I stayed at this hotel two days and I think he is here 24/7 and goes out of his way to help you.
I did not experience any of the highway noise others have put in their reviews and do not understand how this could be said about this location as it is a long way to the 101. There is another Motel 6 close to this one that is right on the 101.
this one any room is fine and you will not hear anything except your own snoring.

Room Tip: I would recommend you stay on the second floor if you don't mind the climb up the stairs. You w...

Reviewed 3 October 2013

Price was right( don't forget promo code online!). Staff is friendly, smooth transaction. Rooms were clean. Even though the pool is "solar" heated, our family went in it the beginning of October. We've been told that we are "tough". Water was cold, but felt good after sunning outside for a while. Not too much to choose from to walk your dog. There's a small grassy area behind the motel and there's some grass in front of the car dealership next door. It's surprisingly quiet here. We thought it'd be noisy by the 101 and having a car dealership on one side & a tire store on the other, but it wasn't!

Room Tip: avoid the rooms in back, gets noisy with the semis

If you just need a place to put your head for the night, this motel is perfect. The room was clean and quiet. We traveled with our three dogs (10lbs each), and had no problems. Close to a large strip mall with a Target, PetSmart, and Costco. About 5-10 minutes from downtown San Luis Obispo and some really great restaurants.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back were away from the freeway noise.

It was clean, average. Nothing special, but it was safe and the staff was very nice. Close to may stores. I would stay here again.

The only issue that I had was with the pool. It has trash in it. Plastic bags in the water, and leaves. The water was ice cold.

Reviewed 31 July 2013

Stayed here since we were travelling with a dog and other dog friendly choices were booked.
This was my first experience with Motel 6 and it wasn't nearly as bad as I feared. The staff was knowledgable, approachable and courteous. The bed and pillows were decent, not luxurious but perfectly fine. The TV wasn't a flat screen but it had HBO and a remote with a sleep function. The room overall was a bit small, but 2 people and a large dog could manuever without too much problem. The bathroom floor was an industrial linoleum, very utilitarian.
The pitfalls I found were that the room only has one outlet outside the bathroom with one plug used for the TV. In today's high tech world that's challenging. The towels are very basic and could be improved, but they were replaced daily.
Overall, the place was clean, surprisingly quiet and had decent parking.

It's a nice to hotel to spend the night when traveling. No amenities but it is clean and comfortable. The shower works nice and reminds me of a space capsule. Beds are comfy. Although off the 101, room was relatively quiet.
