This is the cleanest Motel 6 I've stayed in. The room smelled nice and the bathroom was well maintained. This place also has cable with hbo channels. The area is away from the major traffic areas so it was also pretty quiet at night with no annoying people and drama. There's also a dennys literally a few feet across the...

Overcharge, they do not honor prices they book on the Internet with motel 6. Plus I had 2 reservations, continuous nights, and informed the clerk on check in. They charged me a no show rate on a separate charge even though I was staying there that night. Then the girl told me she can not help me and I have...

The room I had looked like it had been renovated. There was laminate "wood" floor so no nasty carpeting. It was bare-bones but clean. No fridge or microwave. The bathroom was pretty much the same. Clean and simple. Only a shower, no tub. We were there only to sleep so it served our purposes. The front desk staff was friendly...

very clean, wifi is spotty, but overall, a good place for a one nighter. We stay there every time we cross the border going south. Going north we cross at Tecate. Wish they had one close to there. I like it cause it's dog friendly and food and gas are close at hand. It's always gets pretty full, so I'd...

A group of us were going to a concert at Sleep Train and looking for a place to stay for the night. I was very skeptical of such an inexpensive motel, but we were on a budget so we bit the bullet and made a reservation. When we got there I was still a little apprehensive because the area wasn't...

Stayed at this Motel 6 for 2 days during a recent visit. Only wanted to stay here because it's so close to the Mexican border. I'd have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. No, it's not a 5 star hotel, but that was not the point of this stay. Overall, I felt that they staff was really friendly, and...

Here for Comic Con on a budget. Pros: - updated room includes ripped out carpet that probably smelled like a cigarette factory replaced by laminate that doesn't stink (yay!!) - 24/7 check-in - Denny's next door Cons: - new showers are stupid & guaranteed to flood the bathroom floors. - lack of carpets means dirty floors. It smells better but...
