I was attending a four day event and only stay here for two nights because all the other hotels closer to the convention center were booked. After I checked in & opened the room I was assigned too, epic smoke attack! It was worse than a smoke filled casino and the room being small didn't help. Or the fact that... More

When I called to book a block of rooms, I was told it was under new management and completely renovated. Got to location and was told "not all rooms are cometely redone". Showers look neat but small and water gets everywhere. Requeated fridge and micro, none avail. Front desk gave us rags. Long story short, we recieved excuses rather than... More

We only stayed at this location for one night, but it was uncomfortable, and I do not recommend staying here, especially with the rates they charge. We chose to stay there because of their pet friendly policies and the fact that they have renovated their rooms. While the floors and counters appeared to be new, the room still had a... More

Spartan is the word that comes to mind when you open the door and look in for the first time. Small room, no fridge, no microwave, no closet and no coffeemaker. No coffeemaker, really. The people above us made so much noise you would have thought they were moving furnature, if they had any, past 3 am. Spend a few... More

Motel6 ain't the best place to choose but Motel6 at San Jose South is definitely to be avoided. Totally overpriced for what you get. Tiny and I mean tiny pool Breakfast room so small often nowhere to sit down. Breakfast food very limited Service not great either, not welcoming at the front desk

This is a fine Motel 6, I usually stay at Choice Hotels. The customer service here is excellant. They have room to park my trailer and don't mind if I choose to leave it on the lot while I am renting a room. Have to pay for internet or i would have gave a higher rating. Stayed September 2014

The best thing you can say about this place is that it is cheap. Very close to 101. Seedy. Nothing special. They charge extra for wifi. No morning breakfast. Rooms get warm. Again it is cheap fairly clean

The room was relatively clean and functional. Flatscreen TV, desk with chair, poor quality bed, warm shower, internet access not super fast but consistent. For a Motel 6 I was pleased. The undesirable parts: - Thin walls lead to noise -Laminate wood floors make it noisy for bottom floor - Next to highway, ask for room away from road -... More

First of all the rooms are decent and the staff is really nice. My husband and I stayed here a few nights because we were working nearby. I didn't feel well and stayed in the hotel for two days. I was actually scared to walk my dog during the day! This motel somehow attracts drunks and drug addicts. I looked... More
