12/27/2013 review I have stayed in Motel 6's all over this country. This is by far the absolute WORST one I have encountered. Two words: BED BUGS As a whole, Motel 6 is a scuzzy place, but when society is so anti-dog that the only place you can get a roof if you have a dog over three pounds is... More

slum sləm/ noun 1. a squalid and overcrowded urban street; dwelling; or district inhabited by very poorly treated people. synonyms: hovel, rat-hole; MOTEL 6 FREMONT SOUTH etc. Grace at the front desk was very unhappy, as though she were cleaning toilets instead of her inhospitable attitude...

We got there after a 16 hour flight and all we wanted was to take a shower and sleep for one night. At the reception they said that there were no rooms available, even though their own website (and other booking sites) would say otherwise. Maybe it was just their way of saying "stay away". Should've listened. The overall atmosphere... More

Don't expect too much. Somewhat run down, non smoking rooms have ashtrays, we have a couple dogs hotel is pet friendly but room stunk of urine or something. Seems that there are people actually living here, shady characters around, but what you expect for 55 dollars. Would I stay here again, I highly doubt it, but I must say this... More

I stayed here for a few days and was not impressed. It looks nothing like the photos on the corporate website; it's a bit rundown and is also right off the freeway and pretty noisy. If you're getting here by GPS you will find that the most logical route will be a pain (Mission Blvd) traffic-wise since you'll have to... More

I reserved a room here because it was in a business park, good location, and the pictures make the place look decent. It's a national chain in Fremont, California; it should be good right? Oh my God!! This hotel is the worst that I have ever seen. The room smelled like a dead animal, there were two naked men with... More

Location, location, location! Easy freeway access. Near a shopping center. Not the best motel I've ever stayed in, but for the money, a real bargain. As mentioned previously, choose a room upstairs and to the back of the property. There can be a "shady element" that stays here so make sure to lock your car doors and keep valuables with... More

Pretty good value - excellent freeway access, discount online price, allows pets for free!, free parking, cable tv, good size suites. Their internet was down when I was there, but I didn't need it that bad. You pay up front when you check in so there is no check out needed. I loved being able to travel with my dog... More

Really awful hotel, always have to change rooms, smells like DOG. The only good thing is the price, but that's it. People, don't travel with pets, leave them at home. Motel 6, please clean the rooms! They are disgusting.
