This hotel was pretty inexpensive so do not expect fancy rooms, workout area, or a restaurant. The rooms were very clean, the beds were very comfortable, the AC worked great in 100 degree weather, and the staff was very friendly. The pool is big and super clean; my children enjoyed it. The outside was kept as clean as the inside.... More

I stayed here overnight, however I would not mind having a longer stay. I checked in late and because the motel was full I unfortunately got a room facing the freeway, but until about 5 AM the traffic on I-8 was very light. This Motel 6 is remodeled in the new corporate style, and while it does retain some furnishings... More

I could find only two hotels/motels that would accept a dog. The other hotel wanted $100 for my dog...not going to happen. I reserved a QUEEN room and instead was given a double full. The place was nearly empty so I am not entirely sure why this happened. I let it go because I'm 5 months pregnant and really I... More

Stayed here one night and it was fine…clean, relatively quiet, cheap. Was glad the heater in the room worked because there was only the flimsiest of covers on the bed. Bathroom sink was the lowest I'd ever seen and faucet sprayed so it was difficult to wash my face (I assume it was low-flow) but all in all it was... More

First off, it's a Motel 6 so don't expect Madrin-Oriental service or class! However, the hotel has been recently remodeled and all the rooms looked pretty nice! The beds are pretty small (all seem to be full size) but the TVs are new and the bathrooms as well. We also got a room on the lower level and the walls... More

I have used this motel several times and now that the rooms have been upgraded and with new flat screen TV, , microwave and fridge a great and convenient place to stay short of long term. If you don't want to cook, fast food is steps away sl is Mexican food and a higher class Resuraunt.
