“Surprise for Motel 6”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2007

Stayed here the last weekend in March with young daughter and friend. We checked in early and registration gave us our pick of rooms. I was happy the room was clean and there was no "motel" smell. The light over the sink was not working and they sent someone to fix right away. The next day, they made beds, refreshed towels, but forgot to empty trash.

The motel is right next to the freeway, so if freeway noise bothers you, request a room in the back. The pool was not heated so best to swim while the sun is shining. They do have complimentary coffee in the morning, but no continental breakfast.

For the price, this motel was a bargain compared to other budget motels in the area. We would stay here again if our budget was minimal.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2006

We stayed in this Motel 6 for one night, and we have never stayed in Motel 6 before. Technically, the hotel was OK: the room was clean, everything worked, and the receptionist was polite. However, when we entered the room, we were surprised how every detail says: "cheap". The walls were painted plain yellowish, with no pictures, and at first it felt somewhat depressive, as if we are in some office. After some time we got used to it, though. If this hotel is indeed among the best in the Motel 6 chain, as the previous reviewer suggest, I wonder how the other ones look.

On the good side: as we entered the room, there was constant noise from the bathroom fan in the room below, although the room was unoccupied. We contacted the management, and they immediately solved the problem.

  • Liked — Cheap, functional accomodation.
  • Disliked — The look of the room.

We were pleasantly surprised, as Motel 6's really run the gamut as to age and condition. This one seemed practically brand new and was spotless, close to the freeway, and very quiet. It was confusing to find at night, and I ended up at the other Motel 6 at first (I think they're less than a mile apart?), but this one was in much better shape. We'll definitely book there again on our next trip through SLO.
