The reception was really friendly and helpful but the rooms was so minimalistic and different looking to the retouched images. It is a high room rate per night for what we received- nothing. The bed was rock hard. No deposit box. No hair dryer when mentioned in ad. Grey towels instead of white. The curtains were stained from who knows...

Unfriendly, uninformed, unhelpful staff from check in to check out. Day 2 of our stay we had been out all day & came back to the room tired & planning to clean up to go out for a nice dinner, but the keycard was not working with no explanation. The Front Desk Clerk blankly stared at a window when I...

I hate the remodel. I've stayed here several times before the so called remodel. It was always a nice stay. Nothing fancy but comfortable. Now... It's awful! Looks as cheap as it gets. So dirty! There was even an old used tooth brush left in our bathroom! It was so dirty we used the towels to stand on in the...

I will amitt that its been a long time since I've stayed in a Motel 6 but this was just horrible. It was the smallest room I've ever stayed it. It smelt like smoke which made since when we found cigarette burns on the blanket. Out of 4 towels not one of them looked clean. Besides having a hard time...

Reading some of the other reviews I think there may be some confusion over this property located on 4th Street and another Motel 6 which is on Pacific Ocean and is actually in Pismo and near the beach. For clarification this Motel 6 (4th St) is located just off the freeway at the services. Location for travelling around the area...

We spent one night and it was ok all in all, especially concerning the price we weren't expecting too much. The hotel is located between the highway and another big street, but kind of in a suburb of Pismo beach. It is not too noisy but you have to drive a couple of minutes to reach Pismo itself and grab...

Was a decent room for a decent price was clean just ask for non smoking close to the beach just one exit away and even closer to the outlets . No shortage of restaurants surrounding this place I'd definitely recommend for a quick stay

We really enjoyed this hotel. The staff is friendly and warm, check is clear and fast. The rooms are basic and very clean. If you're planning to eat at Denny's tell them you stay at the hotel, they'll give you a discount. We recommend!
