We know what to expect from Motel 6 and were not surprised by this no frills location. The grounds were clean as was the room. All modern rooms which we prefer because they are not friendly to bed bugs. This is off the beaten path and unfortunately, we did find two cock roaches in our room the following morning.

I stayed there twice recently. The first time was ok, but that's it. The second time, also for business, was for an extended period. I did not get housekeeping at all. Not once. The floor hadn't been cleaned before I moved in. The bathroom floor and toilet were dirty. There was no wash cloth so I looked through the other... More

Never stayed at a Motel 6 before. Was easy to find and the lights were on. Only one towel in room. Called and two more were delivered but then realized there were no washcloths and only two pillows (we use four). As an aside, they were the smallest bath towels I've ever used. I went looking for assistance and found... More

When you book a Motel 6 you get what you pay for. A basic room with a bed and a shower and a toilet. All were clean and there is plenty of hot water. Only real complaint is the towels are more hand towels than bath towels.

I do not enjoy writing negative reviews, but, I found very little to praise. Upon stepping into the shower I discovered a large, shape crack in the bottom. The manager offered us another room to which we agreed. Upon trying the door lock we could hear someone snoring. Managers response, "ooops" We waited for the next day, moved our stuff.... More

We stayed in quite a few of these motels on our trip around California and we found them to be very good for the price, this one was one of the better ones. It is very easy to find and close to the Factory outlet with lots of designer stores. There is also a good supermarket within walking distance. The... More

Honestly it was not too bad. No breakfast, small pool no spa but the room was very clean and the bed was nice. Not super comfy but not horrible either. The rooms are small but it was just 2 of us this time. The shower was like a rocket ship and there was no closet or stand to put our... More

good for the price you pay. Felt safe. Clean. Very small rooms. Ok, for a couple people. Sheets and blankets were thin. Nothing special place, but for what we payed for this area, would probably stay again. There is a Denny's right next door for food. Easy to locate and easy to get to "downtown" area.

Though I paid over 200 my 2 night stay.. I was disappointed because they did not have a coffee maker.a fridge. Nor a microwave. . Also I had to... More

Where should I start.....First the negative - Problem 1- we were traveling and arriving late. I called ahead (9 pm) to let them know we were going to be there and we were going to pay cash. The gal on the phone stated if I wasn't there by 10 pm she was going to charge my room to the card.... More
