The general consensus that the upgraded room (well new flooring at least, the rest of the upgrading seems to be new paint and a flatscreen) is accurate. As with most Motel 6's you get the usual combination of Kleig lights outside with "too small to fit" curtains. I cannot figure out why these all need to be mounted 4" away... More

I had meth-heads in the room next door making a lot of noise. The next morning some bootcamp girl-soldier-pseudo-chaingang kind of troop arrived, making more noise, dressed up all military style. I was getting ready to be shot dead as some sort of pedagogic experiment. I can't really rate this place down completely, because of course this was all purely... More

If I stay at Motel 6 its only at the upgraded ones. This Six property in the one to stay at. The office staff are so friendly and the manager makes you feel at home. When I first walked into the room I noticed the room smelled clean and looked fantastic. No hair left anywhere and everything wiped down, the... More

I've stayed in Motel 6's all over the country and really appreciate their simplicity, cleanliness, budget price and the fact they accept pets with no charge or hassle. But this one just north of Monterey, CA, tops them all. Located within a healthy walk to the beach and near restaurants, this Motel 6 has a delightful courtyard with lovely landscaping.... More

Front desk staff were very friendly and helpul. My room was pretty small, but it was very clean. We had a queen bed and it was pretty comfortable. The rooms are modern and the tv's are big. the hotel is very close to the beach and for the rate I was given it was a great value

Everything you get is pretty good. Bed, tv with two hbo channels but no golf channel, bath and shower and plenty of electrical outlets. And very good A/Vheater. What you don't get is coffeemaker, microwave, fridge, free wifi or ironing board. So plan ahead. Great deal for $60 per night place to pit stop at night. Stayed here during at&t... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and found the room extremely clean, very quiet and comfortable. The motel is laid out so there is a great little courtyard type park in the center with benches and patio tables. The staff were very courteous and helpful. Ramondo was exceptional giving us suggestions and directions to local attractions and restaurants. There is... More

I love this Motel 6! The rooms are newly renovated and have flat screen TV's and new furniture, The grounds are clean and well maintained and there seems to be plenty of parking. It is located directly next door to a Denny's so is almost like having an onsite restaurant. A drive to Monterey takes just 15 short minutes and... More

I must say that I was quite impressed with this Motel 6, particularly considering how picky and conscientious I am of my surroundings. I still prefer to be located within certain boundaries of a hotel.. I have my personal reasons why? The room was exceptionally clean, modern, cute and the staff was so very kind. To be honest I was... More

First of all, we had to wait about two hours to check in our room even though it was much after the given check in time. The staff did not offer any conciliation for the inconvenience, rather told us they have maids who still have not cleaned the rooms....this was apparent, and I am not sure they ever got to... More
