Starting to charge for wifi. Told us heater in room did not work. No shampoo or conditioner. Bed was clean and room nice and quiet. Weird they wanted both of us to show our IDs. Made us feel like criminals. Overall we would not go back. Hope other Motel 6 places don't follow do the same.

We arrived late evening and retired to the room which was fathest behind the reception. The room was as expected. After shower I wanted to connect to the internet and had not found the... More

Front desk insisted on a government issued ID. I provided several and was told that they needed one with my address on them. So after giving him my CDL he offered me the "commercial discount". I was distracted by the 3 security cameras over his head. On my way to the room there were several residents sunning themselves on the... More

After all the exquisite hotels I've stayed in around the world here I am at the Motel 6 in Salinas. Oh, the things I do for my dog. And that's the point. I had a major road trip planned and doggie was going. What a pain to search for dog friendly hotels. And one hotel in Monterrey wanted a $65... More

No breakfast at all, only a 10% off at Dennys resturaunt. 2. No coffee maker in room. (Coffee provided at main enterance however) 3. WiFi was a $3 charge. (Give me... More

Really, your going to charge me for wifi, and for each device. That says it all. Keep on driving!!!!!! No fridge no microwave, just a plain room. And for the price you would think you would at least get a coupon for Denny's..... Not even a coffee maker in the room!! For the $ I paid it's a rip-off. I'll... More

The night between 23 and May 24, 2015 at Motel 6 Salinas South was the worst of my life. The shower and taps were only leaving boiling water, we can not even give a bath in our baby of 1 year and a half. We could not even wash our hands because that water was burning, and according to the... More

There was a lack of ordinary furniture in the room. Sure there was a bed, a very small desk and a TV stand forced into double duty as a "closet". No dresser. No closet. I was staying there to attend a wedding with formal clothes and sorely missed the ability to use clothing related furniture. Stayed there three nights over... More
