Very conveniently located right off the freeway exit and between a Denny's and Carl's Jr. this was the 1st Motel 6 I've had the pleasure of staying at. I was able to check-in fairly easy, the folks at the front were very friendly and personable. They gave me and my sister what appears to be the biggest room in the... More

Good: "right" side of the freeway, super cheap Bad: Paper-thin walls, old school in-window AC, tiny rooms Ugly: No room service one day b/c we had our own pillows on the bed --- The Review --- How we got here: We had a relatively last-minute opportunity to play in Carlsbad so we needed to find an inexpensive place to sleep...

Room was small, bathroom was designed for handicapped. Not to clean but I guess this is what you get at a Motel 6. The Wifi has to be paid for in advance and really was not worth it. Another place I would recommend to stay AWAY from.

"Eww, Motel 6." Ok, but consider this… You're next to the on/off ramp of Interstate 5, between a Chevron station and a Denny's but with a large, RV-friendly lot shaded by giant eucalyptus trees. If you're any kind of west coast road tripper you know this is pretty much a perfect setup. You're about a mile walk from the beach... More

This was my 5th attempt here, on a work night, to get some solid sleep. The place was less than half occupied, but yet ended up with a very late night arrival of what sounded like boot soldiers, above me. I had made a note last time to stay on the lower floor because the upstairs shakes (bed, and all)... More

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.
