Well.. hum. I was able to try this Motel 6 as another option for the one in Marina, where I had a not so good experience. I don't know. honestly the one on Marina is more aesthetically appealing with a court yard, etc.. This Motel 6 on Munras is in a very nice location, walking distance to the mall and... More

This Motel was recently taken over and completely remodeled by Motel 6. For the most part the room was clean except this motel like all Motel 6 now have dark wood laminate flooring and I feel the maids could do a better job cleaning the floors, I had to wear flip flops because the bottom of my feet would turn...

We upgraded our room to get a bigger one with a jacucci. A very nice room, totally worth the extra money. The room was clean, and the staff very helpful and friendly. Free parking with lots of spaces.

Brand new rooms. We had a little problem with the fire alarm at first (it didn't work) but we found a solution with the owners at the end. The cleaning part wasn't that perfect as I could find some traces of the previous guests on the nightstands, but it's OK. Bathroom was clean, bed was comfy. There was no breakfast... More

This hotel is a good place to sleep if you want to arrive late and leave early. Otherwise, avoid like the plague! We came here because we needed a hotel that was good for our budget and pet friendly. We planned on staying two nights, but surmised that our stay would be shorter once we checked in. We were warned... More

This motel is located about 10 minutes from downtown Monterey. It was recently remodeled. The floors are wood like. No carpet. The room was clean and the price was right. A mall with a Starbucks was 5 minutes away. The room was quiet and the price reasonable. I travelled with my dog.

We always chose Motel 6 as we travel with our dog. The room was very clean and very spacious. The bed was extremely comfortable and the staff very friendly and accommodating!

Centrally located, perfect staff and Clean comfortable rooms. Me and my wife were on the road trip, we hit the motel 6 and he had our pet with us. And we end up staying one more night. Economical, friendly and clean are my requirements and this Motel perfectly fit those needs.

I used to like motel 6. I will not be staying at any motel 6 s in the future. Overcharged for a room from 1970. Ancient tv, fan and light in bathroom broken. Room smells bad. I thought that they remodeled all motel 6s. I should have looked on trip advisor first...
