Motel 6 San Simeon
Ranked #10 of 10 Hotels in San Simeon
Reviewed 9 October 2017 via mobile

This was a relatively clean Motel 6 although it did not hold a candle to the Motel 6 we experienced in Buellton.

Low marks for the mold in the bathroom and a bathroom fan that sounded like a freight train. Also, there was a bit of a creep factor with folks just hanging out smoking on the stairways on the way to the parking lot. No fun stepping over these people smoking, reminiscent of the old days of high school.

Tom Bodett leaves the light on so you can see if the place measures up.

It is a standard motel 6. it received the same upgrades as all the rest of them, it was clean and comfortable, quiet at night, comfortable beds. the only issue was the shower. it had mold in it. could use a good scrubbing.

Bit of a Grandpa Simpson of a motel: tired and smells funny. Why did the maid make up one bed but not the other when both were obviously being used? Breakfast won't be troubling the Michelin judges...

This Motel 6 is a basic, no frills motel. It's good for a one night stay, but wouldn't want to spend a week here. No coffee maker, fridge or microwave in the room, they provide soap but no shampoo or conditioner, so if your staying here make sure you bring your own. They have coffee in the lobby - no breakfast provided. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. They had air conditioning which was great, although it had a constant banging noise which I pretended was rain falling on a tin roof so I could fall asleep. This is an old establishment so the walls are thin. Staff was nice. Free WiFi (heard the front desk tell a customer it was free because it's so slow). This motel is located south of Hearst Castle and the elephant seal rookery, so close to the sites.
