Stayed here for one night on our way down the CA coast in September. We were just looking for somewhere cheap to stay and this fit the bill. Salinas isn't that hard to navigate (nor is it that big) so it doesn't matter if you're close to downtown or not. This Motel 6 had clearly gone through the typical renovation... More

My wife and I stayed here at the last minute while driving down the CA coast. Cost = $56.00/ night . We were placed in a clean and well kept room. Everything had clearly been cleaned and the smell of cleaner was still in the room. The sheets and bedding were also obviously cleaned if not a bit worn. The... More

The staff had great customer service and the rooms were clean and everything was upgraded and nice and would stay there again in the near future. I think you would enjoy your stay just like we did. the stand up showers were nice and clean the bedding was nice and the hardwood floors were nice as well instead of carpet.

This Motel 6 is going through a complete remodel. The room I stayed in was just finished with new mattress and TV. Like most Motel 6s you have limited channel choices, but it was a new TV. The room was very clean, but then I think I was the first to stay after the remodel. The desk staff was friendly... More

We were traveling around Monterey area and decided to stop for the night somewhere on the road. We got there pretty late and tired and found this area of motels. Motel 6 were the only ones to offer a reasonable price (all others were either fully booked or too greedy). This motel was ok. Nothing exceptionally dirty or spooky as... More

Disgusting I saw pest removal equipment and asked one of the maids if it was for bed bugs she indicated it was but I was assured they were isolated, isolated thru out the entire motel, they even had the audacity to tell me a 3rd party had verified no bugs in my room that 214 and 114 were the only...

This place is terrible. There was a dirty towel stuffed between the mattress and the box spring, as well as packaging for some kind of lubricant (or the lubricant itself - I did not investigate too closely), lots of hairs, etc. Seriously disgusting! Immediately after checking in, I went to talk to the lady at the front desk. We were... More

Found gun clips with bullets between sheets and blanket safe to say they didn't change the sheets... I'm glad one of my two young kids didn't run across the gun clips first... I took it as a sign the town was not a good place to travel through with children

Stayed for only one night with some friends on a weekend diving trip in Monterey. The room was quite clean, including the beds and the bathrooms. The room is basically just beds and a TV. I realize it's a pretty cheap motel, but I hoped there would be at least a microwave. The beds weren't that comfortable but it was... More
