It's been about 102 °- 105° outside here in Fresno. Of all times our air conditioning had went out on us. So hot and frustrated knowing that we could not wait 5 days until it was to be fixed , we decided to get a room for a few days. As always the room they had given us was a... More

I gave it a try and I enjoyed it. I was very please with the rate and the service. Thank you for hospitality. Convenient location, clean, and safe. One of the best Motel 6 I have ever stayed in. After reading the reviews I was not sure but I thought I gave it a try.

I am very familiar with Motel 6 and never had a problem in the past; so I booked this motel6 for 5-days while visiting my daughter in Fresno, CA> The following are things to take into consideration: 1) this hotel is NOT PART of Motel 6 corporation it's independently owned and operated 2) bad location right on business Street Shaw...

Room smelled like wet animal fur. There were no towels or new soap in room. There was an old used bar of soap in the bathtub. There were dried dribbles of coffee stains on the sink counter. The rug was filthy...looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in a couple weeks. I'd be willing to bet the sheets were not freshly... More

By far one of the best Motel 6 I have been to. Clean and comfortable. Staff is nice and courteous, especially Jaterica. She always makes my stay feel welcomed and is very attentive. Highly recommend this location.

One of the worst Motel 6 I have stayed in. The carpet was filthy with duct tape over a rip. I heard noise outside all night. The desk welcome was okay. The stay was better than sleeping in my car, I think. Maybe.

Worst place we ever stayed. Mold in the shower, blood on the sheets and drug deals outside. Carpet was moist from who knows what. SemI trucks parked on the street and ran all night. Stayed up all night to make sure our car didn't get stolen.

Based upon other opinions on Tripadvisor we stayed one night at this less than "spendid" establishment. The front desk was very friendly and our 2 dogs got to stay for free. That's about the only positives I can expound. Obvious drug deals were taking place in the parking lot with shady characters lurking around the area.The carpet in the room... More

Everything was very clean and fresh. It had very comfortable and relaxing feel whenni first stepped in the door. The front office woman, Gladys, was very nice and helpful in every way and ALWAYS had a smile. The Locations perfect and close to everything I needed. Definitely going to be a place I come back to for sure. Thank you!
