I am not sure if people who stay at motel 6 are planning ahead, but if you do, avoid this one. $ room was 95. Over priced for a below par motel 6. My frustration came over asking the manger about the neighborhood. He said it was safe and i also noticed a policy on noise after 10 pm. We... More

Yes it's a bit noisy but for 80 bucks around here I think it's ok. I don't recommend it if you want a noiseless environment, bc on the ground floor you can hear the noise of cars and people... But I think that's expected. You can hear the people above you. But for a quick stop over its pretty decent.... More

The Hubby and I decided to take a spontaneous vacation and drive the coast the week before Thanksgiving. EVERY SINGLE hotel, b&b, and inn was booked from Gilroy to Napa. We "lucked" out with this one. The security guard checking cars as they come in, the curfew for visitors and the fact that there is no lobby but a walk... More

Let me say that it's been a looooong time since I've spent the night at a Motel 6 and this recent stay reinforces the reason why Motel 6 is not on my short list of places to stay. It was Veteran's Day and I had to make a reservation for me and my son on a few day's notice. Because... More

You certainly get what you pay for. This was a decently clean room to stay for a night. No frills, so don't kid yourself. It's still a Motel 6. Part of town what actually not bad. Main complaint iS noise. I think the walls were literally just paper and paint. We could hear our neighbors all night (with what sounded... More

Where to start? Number 1 I am convinced that any nice review is a fraud. I am currently in a room. I wish I would have forked out 30 more bucks and stayed down the street. If you don't have the money to do that sleep in your car! Not a joke or exaggeration. I am in town for doctors... More
