Nice

The room was extremely clean and modern feeling. Everything seemed brand new. It was by far the best Motel 6 I have stayed in. The pool was nice as well. Only complaint is that Wi-Fi was not free and the cable was slightly lacking. And that wouldn't have mattered but the San Francisco Giants playoff game was not on a channel carried by the hotel. Otherwise a good value

just a daycation

It was ok. The room was nice but had to get towels. Also it seemed like an apartment complex instead of a motel.

Just ok

It was just a last resort pick. Other hotels were super expensive for labor day weekend, this is cheaper and closer compared to others. Staff was ok. They weren't friendly nor very helpful, they're just there to do their job. Was surpised for an added fee to what I thought I had already paid. The lady that booked us in did make a comment that I was lucky to get the last nonsmoking room, but I made sure I reserved nonsmoking before booking! So if I had come 10 mins later does that mean I would've lucked out? Just an ok rating for this one, reccommend only if there aren't any better options.

Dog Friendly Pismo Beach Trip

Room was what we expected, we have puppies and we wanted a trouble free dog friendly experience. We did not expect anything special. Service was good. I would just recommend a few more audits of your tenants also please fine or enforce a clean up after your pet rule. Too many lost poops. Maybe a specific area. All in all it was a great trip. Dogs were worn out from the beach and we had fun riding at the dunes and eating everywhere around town. Love the restaurants in Pismo : ).

Online Rsearvation Problem

Booked the hotel online. The hotel staff knocked at our door on 15th saying that the hotel is booked only for one night. Even after giving our confirmation number from email receipt they made us to come down to lobby late at night (02/15/2014) to pay for one more night, spoiling the comfort of the night. Moreover i have the feeling like online reservations here are not reliable and trustworthy. They seems to be overbooking the rooms. About amenities, it is very basic than any other motels i stayed, one towel per person, not microwave or fridge, only soap in the bathroom. Staff is very incompetent. We had bud bugs problem as well, kept itching though not very severe.

overnight stay

It is what it is. No coffee,refrigerator, or hair dryer. The bed wasn't very good, but it was a place to lay our tired heads.

Surprised what we got for our value

I was apprehensive staying @ a Motel 6, but the friend who we were visiting recommends this place for his budget minded guests who appear on his TV show. For the price, do not expect a small refrigerator, flat screen TV, body wash, hair dryer, or average size bath towels. However, our room was clean and comfortable, just enough room. There were 2 things I was not happy about -- no on air cable guide on the TV, and when I opened a bar of soap, it had a hair in it (so Motel 6 corporate execs, please take note of this). Other than that, I would definitely stay there again.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The Denny's is just north of the motel, and use the adjoining driveway to get there, as there's no need to get onto the street. Also north of the motel is the ARCO AM/PM (but you have to get onto the street to get there). I've been visiting the area for over 20 years and did not know it was there. It's the best place to buy gas without going too far from the 101 freeway or the motel.
