I checked in Jan 1, 2015 and came here because they accept animals. I have stayed at many Motel 6's before but I have to say this was the best. I was very concerned because I am a single woman and was worried about safety. I can tell you this, the staff is great from the people at the front... More

If you check into a Motel 6 with low expectations you will not be disappointed. The room we had was clean and everything worked, i.e. the lights, TV, faucets, toilet. Our room was a single with one double bed (not a queen) with an uncomfortable mattress. The hotel is conveniently located close to the Hwy 78 freeway. In fact it... More

We stayed here because we had to find a place for the night. Het motel was nice, clean, had a friendly staff. The room was ok however no wifi, only wifi in the lobby. The breakfast in the morning was moderate (tea, bread and some porridge?). For the money a good deal.

I got onto Hotels.com to see if I could get a better price on Hotels.com for a Motel 6 in Oceanside, CA than the rack rate. With no maps on the Hotels.com site to tell me which Motel 6 was closest to the Amtrak/Metrolink Station, I figured that the Motel 6 Oceanside would be it. I booked it at a... More

A friend and I came to SoCal for a 2-1/2 day visit. We really only needed a place to sleep because we were out and about for a good part of the time. The room we had was with two double beds. It was very clean. I didn't like that they did not offer free wi-fi and charged $2.99 per... More

It's close to legoland, it's inexpensive, and it's close to restaurants, gas stations and stores. The rooms were very small but we never do anything but sleep in the rooms when on vacation. The walls were thin but luckily one neighbor was quiet. Other came in late and left early and was noisy. Bathroom stunk a bit. Staff was alright.... More

We decided to go to Legoland, CA and this was the closest Motel 6 with rooms available. Upon arrival, I went to the front desk to see if, by chance, the room was available early (it was 2:35pm. Check-in is 3pm.) I was told that the room was not ready and to come back in about 45 minutes. I left... More

This Motel 6 had hardwood floors and the standard Motel 6 room size and amenities; the room size was towards the larger size of standard rooms. It's location was easy on/off the freeway with a strip mall with grocery store across the street.

They advertised as newly remodeled rooms. If that is the case, they need to get their money back. My room was okay, but sure never looked like it was new, or remodeled. The noise in the room next to me continued for two days, and the people at the front desk seemed to not care as nothing was ever done.... More

OMG BEDBUGS- I stayed at this newly renovated Motel 6, room 133, and was attacked by bedbugs in the middle of the night. I reported it to the front desk. The clerk was very, very apologetic and refunded my money. I was supposed to stay another night, I was offered another room. I declined and was refunded my prepayment. It... More
