I don't understand some other, critical, negative reviews here. They don't match my experience.

I liked my stay here so much that I'm back again.

Yes, this is a motel and it's a great deal at the price. Yes, the little soap bars are a mere gesture. Personally, I bring my own s

I stayed here since I could not find any local hotel that would give government per diem rate. It was not bad. Clean, Air conditioning worked, good cable, fair internet. Don't forget it is a Motel 6 so you shouldn't set your expectations too high. I would have given 4 stars but f

We thought we would cheap it out given the high hotel costs in the area. We chose the cheap route to save $100 per night. 6 provides the bear minimum. The room smelled too clean as in someone sprinkled and sprayed cleaner to mask not actually cleaning. The floor was sticky.

It's cheap, good last minute place to stay, and staff members were nice! Location wise, it's not close to any good restaurants, but Oracle and the Oakland airport are close by. Good for people traveling on a very frugal budget, if you're in town for Cal's graduation season book e

Starting with customer service: the person on the counter was not available, and when she showed up, she was really cold, like she was doing me a favor. I paid a whooping $145 for a non-smoking room that smells like an ash tray. Now you go to a motel6 looking for a bed and a show

How easy is it to get to all the tourist spots from here ? Also is public transport available ?
"Get a room facing the parking lot, the rooms with a view of the "Marina" are sketchy at night."
"Pick the hotel next door."
"When booking request a room in the back or on the dock side for a great view"
"Away from parties!"
"Ask for a waterfront room. Nice view. However, be prepared for people hanging out and partying nearby."
