Motel 6 San Luis Obispo South
Travel Blogs from San Luis Obispo
Breakfast in S. Barbara after a night at awful Motel6 place. Visit of the Spanish mission, then to San Luis Obispo. The motel in San Luis not very good either. We should have gone a bit northern, in the direction of Big Sur rather than stopping here. SLO is a little town with nice downtown, a few shops. It is not on the coast, we drove to the Pismo Beach, a very run-down place. A couple nice surf shops. Dinner at an excellent burger place called Eureka!, a californian ...
... that it was a thinly sliced roast beef sandwich which had been slow bbq cooked on oak with various spices, sliced onions, melted cheese etc. We had a sample and it was just delicious, one of the best sandwiches we have ever had anywhere.

As we pulled into the resort's parking lot, we immediately knew that it was exactly what we needed. It was a miniature (and less expensive) version of the Grand Wailea in Maui and La Cantera in San Antonio: kid friendly, luxurious amenities, comfortable room, breathtaking views, and a pool.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMotel 6 San Luis Obispo South
One of the best, or maybe the best Motel 6 we've come across on our trips. Remodeled, very clean thanks to the incredibly hard-working cleaning ladies, kudos to them! Never seen a crew work this hard and serious. Only drawback - rates double on friday and saturday. And, as in almost every American motel we've slept - walls are paper thin!
