For the price I paid I would have expected at least a fridge, possibly a microwave. There were spiders in the bathroom and a couple of ants I found throughout our stay. Also, Kleenex would be nice. I did also expect the facility to have a jacuzzi and free wi-fi. I forgot my razor and the vending machine that sold... More

My kids and I stayed at this hotel on 07/24-07/27/2014. The price wasn't too bad at $99.95/night. It was a busy time in San Diego because it was Comic-Con weekend, so I think the prices were slightly increased. We were in town for other things. We had the room with one king size bed. The bed was very comfortable. Our... More

Hotel is located very close to Legoland and to the beach (2 min away). Room has wood laminate floors which is easier to clean up beach sand. Take wipes to spruce up floors if staying more than one night. Does not have blow dryer or ironing board. Room was contemporary, very clean, and remodeled. Hotel does not offer breakfast, but...

This motel is NOT .6 miles from Legoland!!!!!!! It is 2 miles away from Legoland! I booked this motel because of the location to legoland. I wanted to be able to walk to the park so we didn't have to pay the $15 parking fee. When I went to let them know I was parking before check in, I let... More

The room was remodeled in the new Motel 6 style, contemporary and spartan, not even a hair dryer. It also had a laminate floor instead of carpet which I thought was a big improvement since carpet is usually worn and stained. The motel lies parallel to I-5 and maybe 50 - 100 yards back so be careful which side of... More

I've stayed at this Motel 6 a number of times over the past year...while their remodel was pretty poor, the location was alright for what I needed and it was quiet enough. This last time I made a reservation for 4 nights right after Memorial Day and knew they'd be busy on Monday withcleaning. I drove over from Arizona and... More

We were very pleased with this Motel. We checked in April 13 and stayed for 6 nights. The room was very clean, and updated. Smelled nice too when we walked in : ) It was affordable, which was great! We weren't looking for a whole lot of amenities, we weren't planning on spending a lot of time in the room,... More

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...
