Stayed here for one night during the convention on 6/1/2015. Room was kept clean and noise level was kept low. There are many restaurants and market around the motel which was a definite plus. Only few miles away from downtown San Jose. I would recommend this place.

Ok, I normally stay in a Hampton inn, Fairfield inn, but this was the right rate for this trip. It was actually pretty good considering double the room rates for other hotels I would consider. Except that there was no alarm clock, or hair dryer, or shampoo, the room was very comfortable , safe and the bed was nice.

I looked for a hotel that is near the San Jose Convention Center and the SAP center and found Motel 6. I've heard bad things in the past about the chain of motels and came with some doubt, but it quickly faded. The room was clean, the bad was comfortable and the sheets and towels were changed daily. The room... More

I recently stayed at this motel on two different occasions. During my first stay, I had a prostitute proposition me when I was getting into my car to go to dinner. When I returned from dinner, I could smell weed and was approached by a drug dealer who wanted to know if I was interested in buying some from him.... More

The room is ok, quiet but no help from staff. It;s hard to find the receptionist when we came. It was pretty late and maybe he was sleeping. All our need is the value. it was over price with 100$ for a motel .Definitely not come back this ones again.

Second time we have stayed there merely due to location. I actually like the way the place has been remodeled. I understand why they made some of the changes. Room is rather Spartan but at least you can tell it's clean. I knew they never have had blow dryers, nor shampoo, anything beyond towels and soap. We were worried about... More

Terrible Motel 6, should not even be allowed to have the franchise name. Noisy, open liquor and parties, my shower did not work, bath only, room smelled bad. Had bottom floor room, walls paper thin, ceiling was pounding all night from upstairs room. I would never stay here again. i told the management about all these problems in my Motel... More

Last night we had the most costly accommodation so far $109! The price would have been fine however we have never stayed in such a horrible place! The sheets were... More

First of all, let me comment on this "modern" look. Motel 6 has stripped down amenities to the point where it is ludicrous. There are no bureaus, no closets; nowhere to hang clothes except for two small pegs attached to the wall with 4 hangers. There is no coffee maker, no hairdryer, the ac didn't work, the towels are threadbare,... More
