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

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

We have been travelling around for the past two weeks! We have stayed in LA,Anaheim,Lancaster, carson city, and Sacramento! All of the accommodation has been clean, comfortable and reasonably priced! 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

My husband I stayed here last night 8/7/13. There was a smell of pot all around us as we got out of the car, no biggie. We check in and the clerk was helpful. Get to our room and our smoke detector is covered up with a plastic bag... Different, we notify the front desk and they say maintenance must... More

The beds were comfortable. The a/c didn't work, we had 2 sets of tiny towels for 4 people. We could get more towels. And we were fortunate that the weather wasn't so hot that the a/c not working was much of a problem. There was a small frige and microwave. Nice TV. And electrical outlets everywhere! There was hand soap... More

If you are expecting a regular Motel 6 room, you are in for a surprise. The accommodations are actually pretty nice. A flat screen tv, nice beds, hardwood floors and a bath tub. I loved the room. But, the bed was uncomfortable. The bed was hard. The hardwood floor was slippery from the wax when wet from shower and one... More

I thought I knew what to expect from a Motel 6, but I was so thrilled upon entering the room. The room was so clean, spacious and very comfortable. I stayed a week and was treated so nicely from both the front desk and all house maids. The service from my house maid so was nice and made sure I... More

Stayed here Easter weekend for four nights. Accomodation is above average for Motel 6 standards plus they have just begun renovating rooms. Rooms were quite large, beds comfy and bathrooms clean. They have thrown in cheap granite in an attempt to upcale but its still a M6 bathroom. Other reviews commented on the neighbourhood being sketchy, but it is fine.... More

I stayed here while I was attending a volleyball tournament at the convention center, and expected to pay much more as most of the hotels in the area were either sold out or were too expensive to consider. I was delighted to find this affordable yet clean motel still available at a reasonable rate! I did not observe any criminal... More
