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!

The room was clean and basic. Nothing wrong yet. With the AC on, the room wreaked like cigarette smoke. We had to turn it off. There was only one towel for 2 of us. I went to the front desk to get another, problem solved. I would stay here again if they can get rid of the cigarette smoke smell....

It's a Motel 6, it's not a 4 Season Resort. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. In the "special requests" section of the on line reservation form I requested extra towels, and there were extra towels in my room when I arrived. I felt safe in this hotel and in the parking lot. There are several restaurants...

Opened the door to find a reasonable clean room, apart from the pubic hair in the shower! It also stank of smoke, and was very basic. The main reason I do not recommend is because I didn't feel safe. It felt like a bad area, Police arrived to arrest someone whilst we we're going out for something to eat not...

It is very close walking distance to restaurants and the pier. The room itself was small , needs updating and a new lock for the door. The deadbolt on the door doesn't lock it just spins. I had to place a chair under the knob with my luggage to ensure no one could come in. It was priced high for...

The staff is extremely is rude, its noisy, the staff gets irritable if you tell them something is wrong, and I know a guy that told them he wanted no room service--they went in anyway, and they took a towel of his. When he complained, they said he could never come back because he complained. This manager lady runs it...

There were 8 people ahead of me waiting to check in when we got there at 6pm. Staff were friendly and the room is very simple. They have ice and vending machine by the office. Denny's and a gas station is next door. The motel is less than 10 minute drive from the beach. There were a lot of families...

This motel is the worst place we have ever stayed at. Electric cables hanging out the wall. Cover to fan in bathroom hang down from the sealing. Dirty glows in the bathroom. It was loud we could hear everything in the rooms next to us and above. This motel don't deserve a single star. I had to give it one...
