I stayed here on my visit to Carlsbad last year and returned again. I am used to Motel 6 all across the country and know what to expect. No shampoo, no frig or microwave, etc. Last time I had a handicap room which had a weird cramped layout so this time I requested first floor non-handicap and it was a... More

My husband and I chose this hotel for a weekend getaway in Carlsbad. The best thing about this hotel was the location. It is on the edge of Carlsbad Village and within walking distance of all the restaurants/shops, the beach, and the Coaster train. The hotel has been recently updated. The rooms were small, but very clean and as expected... More

I thought that the motel 6 was overpriced for the location and the amenities. No pool, a good 3/4 mile to beach. could hear the freeway all night. No blow dryer in room and when I asked for one at the desk it was nearly broken... Only 10 TV stations and they were either sports, news or HBO(and the bad... More

I loved this little motel. Bring your own hairdryer, and shampoo, and enjoy a clean room, comfy bed, and funny 50's shelving for the bathroom and TV. The room was small, but very adequate, and the price was definitely right. I have recommended it to friends and family, and will stay there again.

Motel 6 did a nice job of renovating this motel. Plenty of ice for guests. Would have been nice to have a microwave, but other than that the 2 night stay was great. Front desk was helpful and the room (including bathroom) was very clean. You can walk to downtown and to the beach, but it isn't a short walk.... More

We needed an inexpensive place to stay for 2 nights for a family wedding in Carlsbad and, relatively speaking, this motel is very affordable. Be prepared, though - no shampoo/conditioner/lotion, no blow dryer, no iron/ironing board. Standing outside the room, we could still hear the couple in the next room as the walls are very thin. Excellent location to downtown... More

Ok, this is a basic motel. However relative to most properties in this price range (under $100 and less than a mile to the beach and a cute village) it delivers fantastic value. It is clean, with comfortable beds and a few boutiquey touches such as bright bedspreads. The only thing that annoyed me was the lack of a bathroom... More

Cheapest rates in Carlsbad village it has been recently remodeled. It was livable for a couple of nights. Clean but basic with a Dennys across the parking lot it satisfied a need. Weekends can be a bit lively as party goers frequent this motel to avoid driving home. All in all I enjoyed my stay for its central location. One... More

Stayed here a few weeks back after the Motel 6 on Palomar Airport messed up so badly. I had seen that this property had been remodeled, so I find for about a year or two, they are good to stay at. I found the front desk folks to all be delightful and NICE. The room was actually cute and clean.... More
