Average motel with newer rooms. Lack of towels but the beds comfy and clean. Wood floors are great for cleanliness as well. Everything works and the room looks fairly modern. Quite noisy in the area and book early if there are a lot events in the area. I'd stay again for the price and convenience of 101 and getting to... More

Let's start: no coffee pot, broken phone, dirty floor, dirty bathtub. Then add bed so soft the mattress sank at least 3 inches when you sat on it, flooring was laminate wood with no carpet and the only toiletry provided was one bar of soap.

I have never found a motel as dirty as this one. When we unpacked our beds we found hair, stains and wrinkly sheets as if the maid had not replaced them. My husband called the check-in desk asking for changing the bed sheets but the house keeping was closed so they gave us another room. How irritating finding that the... More

Did not run into any of the problems encountered by other reviewers. Room was decent, and reasonably clean. Did the job of sleeping our family well for one night, and that is all we wanted. Would stay again if I was in the area.

Stayed for one night, didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised. Didn't want to pay expensive Monterey prices. Recent renovation and did the job that it needed to (checked in late, checked out early). Various eating establishments across the road so no problem with food. Quite noisy but did quiet down after midnight.

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
