Pet friendly and no pet fee. This Motel 6 would be okay to stay at if you are just passing through and just need to sleep and shower and get back on the road the next morning. We were staying at the La Quinta on Macadamia Drive around Christmas time. We needed to extend our stay, but the next night's... More

Loacated next to a Dennys and Carls Jr. Grocery store across the street. Freeway access a minute away. Lots of resturaunts close by, beach half a mile away. Check out is 12... More

I stayed at this hotel because of the price and that it had relatively good reviews. I only needed a place to stay for one night, so my boyfriend and I decided on Motel 6. However, upon arrival there was a heavily intoxicated man on the second floor being quite loud. Not the hotel's fault so I continued on. We... More

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
