This place had a good review. It looked very good on the outside. Nice flowers and landscaping. However, it was a bad place. Every time we used our key, we would have to go to the front desk to have it updated. One week after we left there, there was a shooting of a police officer there. I have since... More

Stayed at this Hotel for only one night, decent price but did not feel safe as I'm by myself and a lot strange people hanging around. Would of stayed longer if not for that cause the clerk that check me was fast and efficient, and tried to accommodate my needs.

Had the misfortune of staying here in the midst of questionable other guests who were loud (all night), crack pipes on the floor above ours. Not clean enough for me - mopping the floors & dusting would have been a nice touch! Rude staff.. just a step up from tent camping in a back alley.

Spent only 1 night in the motel. We liked big and spacious rooms, swimming pool and friendly receptionist. The location is quite remote but there are still many restaurants and shopping possibilities. Very reasonable price.

There were questionable people hanging around and staying there. A young woman a few doors down from us was arrested. Coffee is weak and tasteless but they offer real half and half. Laundry is $1.50 for a wash and dry, even though labeled $1.25. But front office will only give change up to $2.00. Vending machines with snacks and drinks... More

This motel has an ideal location. It is within walking distance of several good restaurants and Arden Fair Mall and Cal Expo is a very short drive. The staff is welcoming and helpful. The grounds are well maintained and clean. The pool looked to be well maintained and clean. There is a coin operated laundry available. Our room was fairly... More

While my usual hotels were booked, this Motel 6 fit our needs for a one night stay while we visited the Cal Horse Expo. Unfortunately, the pool and hot tub were closed for repairs and it was a really hot day. This is the largest Motel 6 I have seen. The rooms were clean and comfortable. All-in-all, a good deal...
