The rooms are very simple. The room was Clean. I thought it was a little expensive . The location was close to the freeway and local restaurants and shops. Very trendy town by the beach. The staff was very friendly and give us information on great places to eat. I guess you pay for the area.

Staff was friendly, rooms were clean and neat everyday we spent there and it was 3 nights and 2 days. This Motel was nice and close to Lego Land where we were taking our grandchildren.Motel 6 has a nice clean pool but would be nice to also have a hot tub to use as well even in the summer.

Inexpensive room for the money. 1st room we got said no smoking but it smelled of smoke so we switched rooms. The room was ok, showing signs of wear, but ok. Walls and floors are thin, you can hear the toilet flush next door and the footsteps above. Very close to downtown Carlsbad though, and all sorts of food places....

This was the second Motel 6 we had stayed at along our trip. Rooms are clean, friendly staff and close to several restaurants. Not a lot of amenities but GOP value for the price. Plus it is one of the few hotel chains that are pet friendly.

We have been a coming to Carlsbad for at least 25 years and have always stayed either right on the beach or just across the street. Much to our dismay, our favorite moderately priced motel has recently been torn down. Since this stay was only an overnight stop on our way home from a long road trip, we decided to...

The room itself was not bad at all, unfortunately finding parking in the lot at night was a bit of a struggle. Personally loved the cold AC and now quiet it was. If I had to stay here again, I definitely wouldn't mind.

Yes, it's a motel... and as you walk to your room, you may glance through an open door and see your neighbor in their shorts, lying around their room, enjoying a cold beverage in the pleasant SoCal evening... so get used to that. I tried to look straight ahead. Service was great, very clean. Room reasonably updated- window sashes and...

Stayed here for one night. Room was kinda small but very modern and clean. Bed was a little uncomfortable and only had 2 flat pillows. Other than that it was fine. The hotel is walking distance from shops and restaurants and less than a mile to the beach! Would stay again if the price was right

Service at the front desk was great. The room was OK... clean and updated. The bed was, well a bed, nice quite the most comfortable. Handy to Denny's and other eating places. The grassy, shaded courtyard was a plus. In all, it was comfortable enough.

Stayed 3 nights. Deluxe upgrade includes several amenities; I used the shampoo, coffeemaker and Basic WiFi. Free coffee in the office every morning after 6:30, but I was awake earlier and enjoyed brewing my own. WiFi was okay 2 out of 3 nights; 3rd night was poor. Saw no drugs or suspicious activity. Well maintained. The staff is very friendly,...
