One doesn't expect much from a Motel 6, but this one was fine. The front desk clerk was friendly, the room was clean, and the check out staff was speedy and efficient. My only complaint was that free wifi was not offered at this location.

The service upon our check in could have been better. We were never offered a wake up call and I never got my military discount. The room was outdated with an tube TV and not a flat screen which I've seen in others. Overall the rooms probably need to be remodeled.

The weather outside is hot and the a/c doesn't work at all. Came here to stay in a fresh room since I have a heart condition but the money that was spent was badly spent. Won't recommend it at all. I've stayed in other motel 6 locations but this was the one that has made my stay so unwanted that... More

It's a Motel 6, No frills, simple "we'll leave the light on for you" motel. I stayed there for 2 reasons - 1) one of my best friends lives nearby and 2) they are pet friendly. The girl at the desk was not unpleasant, but didn't go out of her way to make you feel welcome either. The bed was... More

Yes, I know this isn't a 5 star motel. However, we did have expectations of honest people. The room was OK, average for this type of motel. It was dark just after we checked in and brought in our luggage. There were no outside lights on in the parking lot, very troublesome for travelers with a ton of stuff in... More

Stayed on 6/27/2013, outside temp at 9pm was between 90 and 100, next day forecast for Palm Desert was for 117!. When I checked in I heard the clerk on the phone telling some one to" turn the A/C off wait 15 minutes for the compressor to kick in" (first red flag). Got to my assigned room; A/C only on... More

If you like ticks, this motel is good. We woke up in the morning to find bloated ticks in our bed. The night clerk offered some compensation for the ticks, but could not make the computer comply. Until the discovery, we enjoyed the hotel. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and well maintained. A close-by yogurt shop provided... More

We stayed one night - Tuesday night before Thanksgiving. We made reservations online with the Indio Motel 6 but found this one that was close to where we had dinner. The front desk gal took care of canceling our other reservation and we found our second story room clean and freshly painted. The room looked like the carpet was new... More

This is pretty much a standard Motel 6. The room was clean, but the place has not been remodeled. There is plenty of parking. There are some restaurants and stores across the street in a strip mall. The somewhat steep overpass and the pedestrian unfriendly entrance to the strip mall are a mild deterrence.

I was on the way to Ontario, California from Phoenix for business had to take my pet with me. I was suprised to learn that Motel 6 will allow any size of animal in a room at NO additonal charge. Some hotels/motels can charge up to $150.00 per night, so that is a bonsus. It is a very basic set-up,... More
