You get what you pay for with a Motel 6. The room was fine, the beds were as expected, there were smokers wandering the walkway in front of our room. What really bothered me was that the internet was spotty when it was working and then out for half of our stay. The other irritation was that the launder facilities... More

My family and I stayed here recently for a quick overnight stay before heading over to Legoland the following day. For this purpose, this is a good place to stay. We didn't need a view or any special amenities, we just needed a clean comfy room. The room was clean ( it even smelled clean!), the bathroom was clean, the... More

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
