Customer service is very poorly/unprofessional. System was down at the time of visit. Receptionist was not able to give professional advice and very rude. Receptionist was not giving full eye contact when ask about the issue at the moment.

We have started staying at more Motel 6 hotels since we always struggle to find pet-friendly affordable places. We are finding updated rooms that are clean and decently priced and this location was no exception. We travel with our toddler and small dog, so this room fit our needs fine. We don't spend too much time in the room anyways,...

This Motel 6 is pretty basic. No hair dryer, no coffee in the room, no clock radio, wifi isn't free. But the room was clean and in good order. It would be a good deal at the price posted on their sign when we left--$53.99. But I felt a bit ripped off as I was staying over Family Weekend at...

This Motel 6 was the older of the 2 in the area and was looking a little tired. The venue is way out of town so felt this should be reflected in the price. The rooms were clean and comfortable if a bit small. Having to pay for the WiFi was a bit of a cheek particularly as it didn't...

Central coast of CA in summer, there is not getting around high prices. $140 for one night here. Here's the quick rundown: Plusses - price is decent considering summer hotel rates in this area - renovated room is OK, bed was so-so but it's clean - easy parking/access to my downstairs room Minuses - Automobile noise is moderate, you can't...

Really it is all you need if you are dead tired on the road. True that the sheets are a little worn but they are clean and the room is clean. Surprisingly good place for the price. Staff was very helpful. Close to everything.

The hotel was decent. Clean rooms, beds ok and quiet. I do think the price is high for what you get and don't get. I understand weekend/Summer rates are higher than normal. I wouldn't mind staying here again but probably will look for something that offers more amenities and in an area that has more restaurants.

Nice modern property. Tiny shower a bit uncomfortable. Quite at night. Friendly staff greeted me. Must pay for WiFi. There is a TV in the room. Didn't smell of wet dog as some Motel 6 do. Would stay again if I'm in the area.
