I planned to stay here for 3 days but i only stayed 1 day and i got my money back. The area isn't nice at all, people are loud, and are staring at you + smoking weed in front of their doors all the time, i didn't feel comfortable. Plus the cleaning staff stole my perfumes so be careful people!... More

I came here after I got a job in San Francisco as an iOS programmer. My company put me up here for two weeks while I went apartment hunting. The room was clean, everything inside worked fine, the TV had a hookup panel installed right on the front of the cabinet, which was very nice. The facilities outside were adequate,... More

Waited 20 mins to check in. Dirty and damp room. Sheets were dirty. No free wifi. Strange dirty cat paw print on the sheets. Dirty parking lot. Shower was clogged. The maintenance guy came to fix it and pulled out massive amount of hair.

Stayed for 9 hours on a road trip from WA to Los Angeles. This place is near enough to the Oakland Coliseum that we enjoyed the fireworks from our 2nd story room. With doors and windows closed it was quiet enough, but people were up partying all night. Non smoking room smelled a bit like smoke. Taking the dog out... More

I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly. I only stayed here because nothing else was available. The checkin was a mass of confusion and there were alot of people (6-8) who had confirmed reservations, but the motel had no record of them. I stayed here on 07/28 and was given room 2522. The room smelled like smoke and there... More

We found out on arrival that this place is quite a bad part of town although they did have a security guard on duty. On check in they tried to charge me extra for 2 adults even though we already had a confirmation of the cost. After 10 minutes arguing they eventually agreed to honor the price on my confirmation....

The rooms were dirty and smelled of smoke. Was told non smoking yet ash trays were in rooms. Mildew around window sills.AC smelled of smoke. Horrible experience will never stay at Motel 6 again! I'm okay with Cheaper properties provided they are clean. I don't need the fancy but this was awful! Rooms were not ready at 4pm!!!
