Upon check in i found several flies in my room. The dressers were badly damaged and the office staff are arrogant, lazy and racist. They dont like black people. I would not recommend this motel to my worst enemy. Your a lot better off staying at the super 8 down the street if you expect a clean room and respectable... More

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.

The ladies at the front desk were very rude and unprofessional. Once we got into or room it smelled of animal. (dog, cat or maybe a... More

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
