We only needed a place to rest our tired heads so we booked here...Room is really tiny, jail like...But the bath area is large with new fixtures...Go figure...Nothing on the walls and the furniture lends itself to the feeling you are spending the night at IKEA...Bed was a queen, too small for large folks like us...I was up and down...

I stayed in this Motel 6 for a few days when I couldn't find vacancies closer to me. I could see why it was vacant when I came searching. The room was nice enough, but there was no fridge or microwave, and when I did eventually find the microwave, I discovered it had some unwelcome guests (I guess roaches CAN... More

As soon as you opened the door of the room it absolutely stunk of cigarette smoke, both my partner and I suffered from headaches and nausea whilst in the room, absolutely disgusting. The staff were nice, the price was reasonable for the room but the smell was unacceptable. Highly advise not taking children to this hotel

This place was the bottom of the barrel. The had the worst customer service I have ever seen and made you feel like they were doing you a favor by staying there. We were so disgusted that we were checking into another hotel and because we were 30 minutes past the time to check out, they called the police to... More

Our room was small, clean, well maintained and inexpensive, just what you expect from a Motel 6. We stayed there because we were travelling with our dog and Motel 6 allows pets. Their location is right by the 405 freeway and Harbor Blvd. making it central to that part of Orange County. Although the freeway was close by, we heard... More

I got here to check in at 12:30am, after a long drive. I had to use the walk up window, stand outside and freeze. He charged my credit card for the whole stay which was over $100 than my confirmation email stated. He had to call someone while I froze for another 20 minutes and he came and told me... More
