very clean, wifi is spotty, but overall, a good place for a one nighter. We stay there every time we cross the border going south. Going north we cross at Tecate. Wish they had one close to there. I like it cause it's dog friendly and food and gas are close at hand. It's always gets pretty full, so I'd... More

A group of us were going to a concert at Sleep Train and looking for a place to stay for the night. I was very skeptical of such an inexpensive motel, but we were on a budget so we bit the bullet and made a reservation. When we got there I was still a little apprehensive because the area wasn't...

Stayed at this Motel 6 for 2 days during a recent visit. Only wanted to stay here because it's so close to the Mexican border. I'd have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. No, it's not a 5 star hotel, but that was not the point of this stay. Overall, I felt that they staff was really friendly, and... More

Here for Comic Con on a budget. Pros: - updated room includes ripped out carpet that probably smelled like a cigarette factory replaced by laminate that doesn't stink (yay!!) - 24/7 check-in - Denny's next door Cons: - new showers are stupid & guaranteed to flood the bathroom floors. - lack of carpets means dirty floors. It smells better but... More

The place is clean so no complaints about the room but the staff on the other hand..... I was in a taxi and called the motel to get directions because the taxi driver didn't know how to get there. I had a bad connection and on her 3rd try to tell me the name of the exit she became very... More

The room was clean and quiet. The staff was courteous. The value was excellent. It was very close to the border and right off the Hwy 5. There was a Denny's right next door and a shopping mall close-by. We were able to walk across the border and when we came back that evening the motel pool was inviting. It's... More

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
