I stayed for a 2 night business trip. I was pleasantly surprised at the room. It had hardwood floors, art deco towel holder and they painted one of the walls orange. It was clean and spacious for motel 6. My only two minor complaints are the Internet is slow and the shower pressure was soft. But they really impressed me... More

The room was decently priced, was very clean (has been newly remodeled), and even though we arrived after dark and couldn't tell if the neighborhood was good or not, we didn't have any problems with the location. Close to the mall and shopping. About 20 minute drive to Sea World. Would probably stay again.

Basic rooms. Newly renovated. Dodgy area. Definately not a holiday destinaton. Nice carpet free floors make for clean and bright. No fridge in room and only communal microwave available. No frills here.

Check in went smoothly. Coffee was ready early the next morning. Very comfortable, firm mattress. Clean walls-looks like the property has been recently improved. Quiet 2nd floor room. Very clean other than a few hairs in the bathroom.

I recently moved back to California after living in the midwest for years. My stay at this location was approximately 45 days. During this time I witnessed things I had only seen on the news. Many druggies, homeless and various hoodlums live in and around this motel. The manager lives on site and it appears many of these people are... More

This place offers an excellent price per night, which is the main reason why we chose to stay here, but be careful, the office staff is very rude and do not have any clue what good customer service is about. I called the front desk asking for clean towels and the woman in the office said there was no clean... More
