After a terrible experience at another hotel down the street, I trotted over to the Motel 6. I have never stayed at a Motel 6 before, but I remember the "We'll Keep the Lights On" slogan from years ago and it still makes me smile. Anyway, what a pleasant surprise indeed! The pool is sparkling clean and big. The staff... More

I stayed at this hotel by mistake. I thought i had stayed there before. The room was clean, however people were partying in the parking lot at 2am. You can also hear everyone in the surrounding rooms. Stayed there one night because I was traveling to Mexico early the next day. I was worried for my car and couldnt sleep... More

It was our 2nd time traveling with our Chihuahua and sought a pet-friendly establishment. The Motel 6 website says they accept small pets with an additional $10 fee. Much to my surprise, no such fee was sought at this motel. The property was clean and not that difficult to find. Best of all, it was next door to a Denny's... More

My boyfriend and I were looking for an inexpensive place to stay after a day in Tijuana and drove past Motel 6. Area looked ok and it was also next to Denny's so that was a major selling point for us. =] We called to inquire about reservations but told us they were fully booked. However, when I checked online... More

We stay in Motel 6's all the time because they are pet friendly. This was no exception. We were given a smoking room even though we requested a non-smoking but the smell wasn't too bad so we kept it because it was away from traffic. Stayed two nights and requested a third (we often pay day-by-day) and were told we... More

After getting the rudest and nastiest treatment from the Indian Manager at Travelodge next door, the manager in Motel6 came to our rescue and gave a decent rate and of course a place to stay near San Diego. The manager was so helpful that she even allowed to use the employee microwave to warm up food for my toddler. The... More

I stayed here for one day while I was traveling to Tijuana and I didn't like it. The place is not very well maintain, it smells like old. The location and the price are good but I think that for a little more I can stay in better room. The staff was friendly but the hotel is old so is... More

At first the location was sort of intimidating, but we didn't encounter any problems. It's literally 2 exits from the Mexican border. The staff was very friendly. We stayed 3 nights and came back to a clean room every day. The pool looked clean, didn't get a chance to use it.
