I stayed on October 30, 2016 for one night. The reception clerk (a guy) was very nice and helpful and no problems checking in and getting the room I requested. Everything was nice and clean, bathroom, etc. I always check the bed linen to ensure no special problems were in the bed. Everything went well for a one night stay.... More

We took a last minute room since we were too tired to drive. We chose this hotel since we had good experience with motel 6 before, and we trusted this chain- what a mistake. The room was awful!!! Although it seemed clean at first, in the morning we found some cockroaches crawling on the walls (maybe we were too tired... More

Had to pay overage charges on my phone for the 5th time because of your WiFi here. It kept shutting off and I used up my data and thought I was connected to the wifi. I emailed and called three times and have got no response

We were greeted by a really efficient smiley and happy guy on reception (sorry can't remember his name which is awful as he was great!). He gave us free wifi and showed us where to park and reminded us there was free coffee in reception in the mornings etc. There were tourist brochures and a water machine. The rooms were... More

This was the cheapest we found, the hotel quiet even next to the road. The room was clean and comfy, they said it had just been refurbished it had clean wood flooring and a flat screen TV. Only bad thing was the shower had low pressure but I can live with that. Cheap, clean, basic great if you only need... More

Overall the hotel was clean and quiet. Easy check in and out process. Beds comfortable and fresh towels everyday. The main downfall was the lack of internet. My son had a project to finish so he paid extra for the "hi-speed "Internet that kept failing and cutting out while he was downloading his video.a minor fault was no shampoo,eithh I... More

The freeway noise is constant and walls are very thin, so our room was a bit noisy. But it felt quite clean and we really liked the wood floors, carpets in hotels always feel grimy. Front desk staff were very nice and helpful

Surprisingly adequate for when travelling. This 2 star chain has clean facilities, reasonably priced and offers a quiet nights sleep. Small fee for internet, free parking, no breakfast. Ask for seniors discount. Would use again if the need arose.

I thought I would give Motel 6 a chance as they say they have improved. Nope they are still the super basic motel they have always been. I didn't like giving them a copy of my drivers license either. I told them I would be back with my hubby's later. Never did, it was unnecessary. Price was ok for area... More

If you don't require wifi, a fridge, hairdryer, microwave or coffee making facilities, this is fine. But when you have been travelling in California, I feel these things are necessary. That's why it only got a rating of two. The pool is quite nice, but the room had a strange smell and the bathroom is tiny. If you want wifi... More
