There's lots of things to see around motel. Rooms are rather small and had a weird smell. Restroom was real small, toilet seat is right next to bathtub. The room seemed a little dirty. I guess you get what you pay for. Won't be returning, would not recommend if you're used to clean rooms and no funny smells.

We recently stayed on a last minute stopover to have dinner with friends in Riverside before launching a roadtrip to wine country. Having stayed a numerous Motel 6's on a recent 6 week journey, and since this particular location seemingly was a good location near the Universary of California Riverside, we thought it would be fine. WRONG... To access the... More

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, but the bathroom could be more clean. No problems using the internet. No other services provided but overall it was good enough. No very good for people who are disturbed by noises from the street. There's a gas station in front of it so it gets noisy during the night.

I used to study at University of California Riverside - so I know pretty well the area. I decided to pay a visit to some teachers of mine and stayed at the motel 6 by the University Village. The location is great, since it is walking distance form commerce & from the university. However, this motel 6 is in pretty... More

I stayed here twice in one month. First time I stayed in room 203 and they woke me up with construction in the next room. I asked the old lady in the front office to make sure I got a room that would allow me to sleep in and guess what. the room right next door was being worked on.... More

Great place, front desk was friendly. Plenty of places to eat all around and very close to freeway. Had a fridge and microwave and the tv had plenty of channels. Had no problems there what so ever. Front desk was even helpfully about giving me directions to the venue I was going to the night I checked in. I would... More

This is a good Motel 6 like any other Motel 6. Its location is very good, especially if you are in UC Riverside. One of our rooms (room 124) was a non-smoking room and had a very bad smell of cigarette smoke. That is not the fault of the hotel, but of the client that smoked in the room a... More

Regardless of location. The staff was always top notch here. If you can stand a cheap motel and a so so neighborhood. Then live it up here. LOL

It's a decent place. Kind of high traffic and not in the best neighborhood, but they try to keep it clean and such. I would suggest a room on the front side in the summer (the back side gets the afternoon sun), and on the back if you're a light sleeper (due to the traffic noise).
