Excellent motel 6. Room had a refrigerator and microwave and was very clean. Bed was comfortable and staff was friendly. Don't quite understand the negative reviews for a motel 6- have you never stayed at a motel 6 or other affordable hotel?! What do you really expect?!- seriously, come on people- its ridiculous, this is a great place to stay... More

I'm doing a road trip ... all i want is a place to pit stop. Motel 6 is a budget chain so I have no idea why people complain that it's run like a basic motel. You want luxury - spend another $100/night and you'll probably still fall short! Sure - It's basic, but it offers you a bed, a... More

I actually enjoyed this Motel6. Well located, stores around, helpful employees. My room was not too bad. I even decided to stay one more night. Obviously, don't expect too much from a Motel and don't forget to go grab your free coffee before 11pm !

Well I have not stayed in a Motel 6 in a long time. But let me say I forgot how very basic they are. My room was smaller than my cruise ship room for my cruise last month on Princess. The towels were small and well the sign said they would not be replaced for 3 days. Not the typical... More

We stayed here just one night before beginning a long backpacking trip on the Tahoe Rim Trail. It was a chance to acclimate to the higher elevation of the mountains. Motel 6 is not known for being fancy, but this one was actually a cut below what we expected. The strangest thing was that the bathtub stopper was unscrewed and... More

Cheap, affordable, near to everything. It's a motel there is not much to say really. It is opposite a place to buy food and you can walk to a locals bar. The place was clean and it takes pets which is always great. Sadly, it is not one of the updated Motel 6's................yet.

We had a change of plans and had to look for a place to sleep at 10pm on Sunday. Motel 6 was a good choice. It is a no frills place, but very clean and looks almost new. There is plenty of parking. We got checked in and out quickly. Recommended.

We stayed during the 4th of July weekend and booked in advance online. The location is great being very close to the lake and with free parking and Denny's nearby. The check-in line was very long and they were running a bit behind on cleaning the rooms but the front-desk staff worked quickly to resolve the issue. The rooms are... More

We arrived early afternoon and were given a room directly which was nice of the guy at reception. Relaxed by the pool and left very early the next day. Kindly they even gave us some take away breakfast at 5am. English guy at the reception was very nice.

Too far to walk to any activity. Had to drive and then find parking. As to the rooms, they were tiny. Not much space to open two suite cases. Could deal with that....but no coffee pot, or frig in rooms as well as a hair dryer! Tv was ok but older and small. This was not cheap! We saw rooms... More
