I stay quite often at this Motel 6 and I have ALWAYS had a positive experience. Friendly, professional management and front desk staff, easy check-in, very clean, nice-smelling non-smoking rooms. The motel is located in a good area of Fremont, right off the 880 freeway. It's located right in a small shopping center (grocery store...many restaurants..donut shop...a Walgreens & McDonalds...

Here for 7 days and was actually impressed at the updated rooms with wood floors and showers. Convenient right off the 680 and there's a lot of restaurants, mostly fast food within a 5 minute walk. Only issue I had was the A/C heating system allowed smoke to come in from other rooms very easily even though my room was... More

I stayed here over several different stints over a few months. The location is good as far as a grocery store and several good restaurants are located in the shopping center next door. The motel is near the parking lot known as Interstate 880 but I did not hear the freeway when the window was shut. The Dumbarton Bridge and... More

It was getting dark and I was exhausted after doing a trade show all weekend. I had been driving for a couple hours after the show and decided to find a place to stay. What a lovely welcome I had at the front desk! The man and woman at the front desk were very genuinely sweet and made me feel... More

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

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
