We checked out our standby, Palomar Inn and found they have upgraded which means more $$$. Since it also eliminated continental breakfasts as well and NO senior discount it would have been $70 plus TAX! Up the 5 to Carlsbad we called Motel 6 and found a room w/ 2 beds, great TV, WiFi , but no breakfast for $65... More

Great rate and fairly quiet for being adjacent to the freeway. Very, very clean - good TV - and comfortable bed. Staff was excellent and there's plenty of parking. Close to small mall and many restaurants. Most motels don't have good hot water or towels - this place does!

We just needed a place to stay before hitting the airport the next day and were tired so ended up here. Very basic, older hotel, the room wasn't bad and the bed was decent. It was reasonably priced but kindof weird that I had to go back to the front to pay $3 extra for a wifi card.

We spent 3 days here over the 2013 Christmas holiday season. This place is basically a place to sleep. Rooms are modern and clean, but they don't even supply you with coffee in the rooms. It's close to the beach and a nearby mall. They also have a pool which we didn't use so I can't comment on it. Staff... More

Motel 6 has a reputation for being the low end of the low end. However, as a budget traveler, I have discovered some Motel 6's that are fantastic exceptions. Motel 6 in Carlsbad on Raintree is one of these places. I have been staying here from time to time since 1997. It gets better every time. It is extremely clean... More

We were looking for a place to stay near Legoland for the 4th of July weekend. It was a last minute thing. We decided to celebrate the holiday and watch the 4th of July fireworks in Legoland with our 2 yr 3month old son. We found Motel 6 as the nearest place with available rooms to stay (only 2 or...

Very clean, newly remodeled, great weekly rate, and wonderful service. Only 2 complaints no hair dryer and small rooms. But those are really non issues for a place to lay your head after having fun at theme parks and the beach!

We had 2 rooms at the Motel 6 at the end of July and paid $125/ night weekend Tax IN and $86/night week night. In contrast San Diego had rooms in the mid to high $200 range at the same time. We opted for the ½ hr drive to San Diego to save some money. Despite the renos this is... More
