4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed at this motel for 3 nights in June 2015. I had already driven 7000+ miles around the country, and was visiting a doctor in a nearby town. I found the property to be in great shape, and parking was no problem at all - I parked right in front of my room. The staff was friendly and helpful,... More

This Motel 6 was immaculate. Maybe recently renovated. My only complaint is that you have to go to the lobby for coffee and the towels were like sandpaper. Staff was very friendly and helpful in giving directions.

laundry machines were broken, told us to call 800 # to complain? owners/managers didn't care. have to pay for wifi. I could hear the hookers screaming upstairs..not a place for families. we would never come back. if we ever stayed at this chain again I would do a lot more research. the rooms very plain but were clean..thats about the...

We had stayed at this Motel 6 about a year ago and returned in November 2014 to find that the rooms have been refurbished and modernized. The most notable difference is that the carpets in the rooms have been replaced with wood-grained laminate flooring. Since the motel allows pets at no extra charge, that is a practical move. Much cleaner... More

I chose this motel based on the location. It's just off the freeway and a few miles to the beach. It's laid out in a horseshoe shape with part of the underground parking under the building, yet open in the back. There are stairs and an elevator. My room was located on a large empty open courtyard space that no... More

I made the reservation by calling the Motel 6 booking phone number. I was given an address I was told was in Newport Beach, which I plugged into my GPS. The GPS went berserk telling us to turn here, turn there, taking us to locations that were NOT the hotel. Finally I found a taxi driver who said that we... More

This was one of the best priced rooms in the area that accepted pets. They let me renew my room multiple times, there was security on-site to make sure that cars parked in the area were customers of the motel. I thanked him for asking me who I was. I stayed at this property for several nights on a few... More

The people at the front desk, and all other staff I encountered were excellent. the location is excellent. I clearly reserved a non-smoking room and the first one though clean, stank of very strong cigarette smell. after complaining I moved to another room which was bad, but not as bad. I would recommend it if you are a smoker, but... More

I booked a room for 2 nights in October 2014. The floors were dirty upon arrival. The furniture was broken, beat up and in poor shape for just being "remodeled". Left the room at 7am the next day and arrived back at the room after 3pm and housekeeping had not been there as yet. That is unacceptable. When the girl... More

In town for our annual Sand and Sport Show weekend, our 1st choice hotel was sold out, so we ended up at this Motel 6. Having never stayed at a Motel 6, I only expected what I've seen on commercials. The only decent part of our stay was the pleasant front desk staff. The rooms had been recently updated, but... More
