    I heard Motel6 was good value so I thought I'd give them a try. The room was clean & had a 32" LCD TV. It had NO fridge, NO coffee machine! No shampoo/shower gell, No breakfast (but free coffee at reception - which they ran out of at 8:45am!) A hotel cleaner told me to ask for shower gel at... More

    We are a family of four and we stayed for one night. The staff were friendly and the location was perfect as a pit stop between San Francisco and LA. Only a few minutes drive to Hearst Castle and the Elephant Seal Rookery, both of which we did the next morning. The room was spacious and clean. Beds were comfortable... More

    PLEASE DON'T DISREGARD THIS REVIEW. I have stayed in other Motel 6 and they are very clean. I like the new rooms. I know they don't have amenities and i'm alright with it. I always carry my own stuff cause you never know. But this particular one is very expensive and the rooms are not clean. The bed sheets seemed... More

    I disregarded the reviews thinking, it's a Motel 6, what do people expect? I have stayed in plenty of Motel 6's over the years as a last minute place to sleep but this was by far the worst place we have ever stayed. It was filthy-hair in the shower, giant chunks of snot and boogers on the bathroom door and... More

    I do not recommend this motel. I have never stayed in a Motel 6, but thought it would be somewhat like Super 8 or Days Inn. What a disappointment. The noise is ridiculous...I could even hear the person in the next room peeing at 10:30 pm. They're wasn't even Kleenex in the room...??? Never seen that before! And the floor... More

    It was filthy and disgusting!!!! Staff was rude and unhelpful. I'm not sure if we got charged for the cockroaches or not (sarcasm!!!) Please do not waste your money. I've never had an experience like that before. Horrible!

    Other lodging in this area typically costs 2-4 times as much. Sure, it's a Motel 6; but we're told it used to be a Holiday Inn. (And we've Never experienced any of the dangerous-looking characters that we've sometimes seen hangin' around Motel 6 in some other locations...) We like the rooms upstairs best, where we feel safe enough to leave... More

    This is a pretty expensive hotel for a motel 6. Clean rooms without any frills. No shampoo, lotion, Kleenex, alarm clock,or artwork. Very basic room for a tired family who only needed to sleep. Our room was handicap accessible so it was pretty big. Not sure the size of the other rooms.
