Stayed April 2015 alone while visiting UCR. Location was very close to a shopping center with nice places to eat, however, I didn't feel safe leaving my room after dark. While grabbing dinner, I was locked out of my room as my key card stopped working. Front desk was helpful. The shower was still covered in someone elses hair and... More

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

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
