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

Confirming another reviewer's observation, we might have had the same room that stank of stale urine (that same smell you notice in a home that has cats). The AC front panel was held down by duct tape, while blowing some of the most vile air ever that we had to turn it off and endure the sauna-like environment. Sink took... More

I booked a room twice at this location & have enjoyed my stay both times! The rooms have been re-done, they look modern & clean! Motel 6 usually has discounts codes online that customers can use when they book a room, I was able to get an extra 10% off on my booking. Together for the price I paid &... More

We were only staying in San Jose for a night (since we were flying out of SJ) and we didnt need anything fancy. I had my 1 year old daughter and husband. The rooms have recently been remodeled, they appear nice.. That is where the glamour ends. There was some funky, shady stuff going on around the hotel- maybe they... More
