Perfect location for Hearst Castle. We arrived quite late and left pretty early, but the lady on the desk was pleasant enough and checked us in efficiently. One of the beds felt a little bit strange when we got in it – sort of rubbery, but we moved to the other one and that was fine. We slept well and were not disturbed overnight. We would stay here again for an overnight stop, not sure I would want to spend too long awake in the room though!

This place is dirty and the staff is rude. There were NO towels and the ones we did have were tiny. Im a small person and couldnt wrap it around myself. My husband took my daughter to the pool before we checked out and and it was cold and she got sick. We checked out and stayed a few doors down at the silver surf. Paid 10 bucks more but got a warm pool and a hot tub right next door to our room and its was comfy and clean. I couldnt believe the staff instead of fixing the dirty room after moving us into another dirty room we got a refund! Thank God! That was the ONLY good thing about this $^&% hole and the people running it!

Clean and decent motel 6. I love to to there because I can bring my dogs. So difficult to find a place that accommodates our fluffy friends. This was $45 on a Friday in December, we were driving up the coast and wanted a quick cheap overnight.

This is a large facility for a Motel 6. The room was slightly larger than most of the Motel 6's we have been in, but otherwise quite standard. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The only problem was that one of the two ice machines was broken and the other was empty by the time we got to it. It was convenient to have a restaurant on site.

Pretty much what I expected. Room was fair and location of room was right next door to the doors that actually let you out of the building. So unfortunately I was awake all night long hearing the outer door slamming shut. The guy at the check in counter was great though. He was very, very busy and he kept his cool and very professional when he finally got to us. Would stay again, hopefully in a different room though.
