This was one of the nicest Motel 6's we have ever stayed at! It had hardwood floors, the bedding was really updated and clean. We picked this motel because it was just 2 miles from Legoland and the price was excellent compared to the other stuff around there. The front desk girl was very friendly! Wasn't expecting much but got... More

If you're looking for a place to stay that won't break the bank, that's clean and updated, this fits the bill. The room we had was recently remodeled, the staff was pleasant, and we were able to get a room away from the freeway side. We don't go to Carlsbad to stay in the motel room, so it worked out... More

My family and I chose to stay here for our long awaited San Diego vacation due to its close proximity to beautiful North SD county beaches. Upon arrival, we found that half our building was under construction. By the fourth day of our stay, construction consumed our floor. When you have small children, you don't want them to have to...

Good value for money except for the wifi....advertised as 'high speed' download speed of .36 Mbps and upload speed of .4 That is not high speed! The staff also gave out the wrong wifi password and I had to call an overseas call center to get it working.

When you stop at a Motel 6, you know you aren't going to get 5 Star accommodations. But what you do get is a clean room and good service. The motels are kept up to standard and you know what you are getting. We stay at this Motel 6 in Carlsbad and have for years when we go to the... More

This is always our go-to hotel when we need to stay overnight in Carlsbad. The rooms are average. They are always clean. For the price, you can't beat the location and convenience. The staff is always friendly and accommodating.

Save lots if money by staying at this location. Basic ( no coffee maker in room, no iron, no hair drier no fluffy towels) clean rooms, clean pool and free parking. Save the money and cross the street to the best German eatery in Carlsbad nothing over $12.98 including prime rib on the weekends.

The room is cramped and dark. No shampoo, no hair dryer, the toilet ran all night, the freeway noise is terrible and the decor is depressive at best and charged 2.99 for WiFI. Never again. If you must stop, ask to see the room FIRST!

It is a really cheap motel, good only for 1 night. There was no hair dryer in the room so we asked it at the reception but we were told that they dont have any. So my wife had to dry the hair with the heating.

I needed a place to stay because my preferred location (Carlsbad Inn and Resort) was booked. I thought the price was great (about 50 bucks a night) for being so close to the beach and the Carlsbad Village area. My room in the back had a great view of a weeded lot with foundations of buildings remaining from demolitions that... More
