One of the best Motel 6's that I've ever stayed. Very clean and updated. Friendly and informed staff. This local was quiet. Denny's and Arco next door. I would stay again. I received free WiFi by showing my AARP card.

Good hotel, Standard Motel 6 setup. Bed & Bathroom were clean. Amenities were good. Checkin was quick. Staff were friendly and courteous. Parking is free & Ample space ! Gas station is close by. Close to Pismo Beach (5 mins drive). Pool looked nice but didnt use. Well priced & good for a night stay over.

It's not a luxury hotel, but it is clean and has good customer service and is in a great location close to the highway and close to the downtown shopping area. Other cities are nearby as are the dunes.

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...
