Good clean hotel, only thing is that guest outside were laughing and talking very loudly so I couldn't really sleep until they went into their rooms. I know they couldn't really do anything about that but just so people know that you can definitely hear what ever is going on outside. Other than that, very good hotel room and nice... More

Bed and linens were a little cheap and uncomfortable feeling but that is what I expected going into this! Room was very clean! and the staff was friendly and professional they even gave us some extra pillows! (Trust me you'll need them) Or I recommend bringing your own! Overall good experience and great for what you pay!

I chose this hotel because it was the best price I found on line. Reading other reviews, I can't help bur wonder if there hasn't been some mix up with the other Motel 6 located a few blocks away. Anyways, it was easy to find the hotel and the check in was what I would expect. Our small room had... More

It is quite fancy for the motel. I've stayed at some motel6 before and this one is better than average. Comfortable beddings, bright and very clean room, floor laminates and modern bathroom. It is close to all major shops including Whole Foods. Friendly people. Thank you!

We stayed here for one night on our way to LA. More than adequate for our needs. We had a room with two double beds which was quite spacious compared with other (much dearer) hotel rooms we have stayed in whilst on our trip. Yes, it is a basic room but you also pay a very basic rate!! So cheap!... More

Close to highway, convenient to on & off ramps. Not terribly noisy given proximity to highway. Biggest issue was even though it was a non-smoking room, it reeked of stale cigarette smoke. Very busy weekend in the area, motel was totally full, but it was a decent value. Wish there were restaurants closer, but easy enough to get in car... More

If you stay here, remember to bring your own shampoo, conditioner, tissues, lotion, and maybe even towels. The ones they offer are almost see-through. They also don't have a hair dryer, I borrowed one from them but it didn't work. The toilet and the sink were clogged. Also, remember to bring copies of your reservations/receipt. Even though they should be... More

The room Size was extremely small. Not enough table tops to keep our things! No sufficient space to hang our clothes. Bed was the smallest I have seen. This looks like a budget hotel of new York and not for California! And while leaving we find that breakfast is not part of the deal!

From start to finish it was great! The staff was friendly and helpful! The rooms were clean and have hardwood floors!! We had been here before and it was not as pleasant, I understand it is under new management and that new manager is doing a great job! Best motel 6 I have stayed at!
