San Jose is usually sold out during the week or the rooms are outrageously over priced so I took what I could get.. Room was okay one of the remodeled Motel6's, AC definitely works. Scratchy towels but can't expects to much at a Motel6 LOL. I don't like how people watched me walk in and out of my room then... More

Suppose to be non-smoking. Smelled strongly of smoke. The rooms adjacent all had non-smoking signs on the doors, but all the tenants were milling around outside smoking. Children running around and screaming and fighting. Adults yelling at each other and the children. Dogs barking from behind closed doors. UGH!!! The night was so noisy with banging upstairs and on both... More

When we first pulled in to Motel 6 we were apprehensive to say the least but after we checked in and went to our room, we were pleasantly surprised. The room had been completely remodeled with hard wood floors and modern furniture. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We would stay here again for sure!

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
