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...

Probably worst hotel experience I've had in recent history. I've stayed in hostels that were better. Bathroom door was locked from the inside when we checked in - we had to jimmy the lock with the Do Not Disturb sign. Heavy stains on chairs and bed sheets. Room smelled heavily of cleaning fluid - but at least that means they... More

Hard to find a motel in Monterey that will accept pets. Motel 6 does. Very plain room with imitation wood floor. Chairs at table are falling apart. Toilet plugged up in middle of night for no reason. Found plunger in utility closet next door and fixed it myself. Very tight parking.
