For $130 for 2 people for a night, you should at least get toiletries and towels enough for the two of you and a clean place to lay your head, right? Stained towels, toilets, and tubs, noisy pets and their odor around the small location, broken ice machines, a 2nd person surcharge (although they don't provide any amenities to begin... More

Looking for designer sheets, a health club and in-room Keurig coffee makers? Then pay triple or quadruple the price and go elsewhere. However, if you are looking for no frills, good location, and $100/night, this does the trick. Room was clean. Amenities minimal (as per the reviews); wifi was adequate though limited (as per the reviews). Rooms were noisy (adjacent... More

It was an average place close to downtown but the Wi-Fi they advertise could have been better the rooms are cleaned and the property was taken care of also it was in walking distance to the Denny's if I come back it would be worth another stay just would like to see the internet improve

It was midnight and we needed a pet friendly hotel. So Motel 6 was it. First you check in through what looks like a bank teller window and then they need your ID and run it through a machine of some sort. She murmured something about San Jose Police require it of them. Too late to fight over illegal search... More

With all due respect, Motel 6 is not the first chain of hotels I'd pick. We needed a place to stay to catch an early flight from the San Jose Airport. We checked other hotel availability and prices. Most were over $300 a night. We just needed a place to stay. The reviews on here were positive and we've come... More

Bare bones hotel. The toiletries are extremely limited (to two little bars of soap). Room was clean. Very sketchy clientele. Lobby attendant wanted both mine and my significant others' IDs. Strange. Area looks a little sketchy around this hotel. Relatively close to the airport and easily accessible from the interstate. Hardly anyone staying or working at the hotel spoke English,... More

After a late flight in to San Jose, we stayed at this Motel 6. Being that it was only a one night stay on our way to Napa, it fit our needs perfectly. The rooms are small but clean and updated. I really liked the laminate floors and modern looking furniture. It is about a mile from SJC and the... More

The Motel 6 San Jose Airport was recently renovated, and truth is the rooms look pretty good. Nice laminated floors, flat-screen tv, the works. It's a bit on the pricier side, but being so close to the airport, I guess it's not bad. I guess my only complain would be that they charge for wifi.

This Motel 6 is quite comfortable with updated decor, which I appreciated. the property is near the airport, which was important to me as I had an early flight. The room was clean and tidy and was what I expected for this budget motel. The oly small drawback was tht t did ot have a little refrigerator. I would stay... More

I stay in Motel 6 a lot in different locations so I know you pretty much get what you pay for, but this place was unacceptable at any price. 1.The toilet didn't flush. When I called the desk the guy asked if I wanted a plunger. Seriously? 2.There was blood on the towel rack! 3. The plug in the sink... More
