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

They do have cheap rates, the rooms are remodeled, and clean for the most part. I also liked the location, and it had parking. They also have HBO, and a flat screen. It's also located next to food, and a variety of restraunts, café, food stores, and bars/ liquor stores. The beach is also in walking distance. There are a... More

Why do we use Motel 6? Price, price, price. I won't go into what is typical - just what I liked and didn't care for. The front desk was very nice at check in and the web site was easy to access and they had space. I'm no longer certain I'm getting the best rate using the internet though. Someone... More
