The staff tried to be friendly, but they seemed uptight about my questioning the homeless folks roaming the lot. The rooms were fairly clean and the decor was newer. The problem is it's right by a busy freeway, and shares a parking lot with a Denny's. There were literally wandering homeless folks in the parking lot all night long and... More

I love staying at Motel 6 in Santa Ana, CA and have stayed there a number of times. They provide me with exceptional guest service. The entire staff warmly greets me, welcomes me back, and consistently asks if there is any way they can make my stay better. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated including bright lights. The bed... More

I spent one night only at this motel. They are very cold at the reception and people are not friendly. The girl at the reception was reallly bored and probably she would like to be anywhere else but there. The room was really close to the swimming pool so early in the morning there was some kids screaming right beside... More

Just stayed here last night. Although the room looked recently refurbished the hotel isn't located in a nice area. I was comped a free night of free WiFi it was very slow. It was also odd that the morning clerk told me I was given a discount as they can't do tax exempt rooms, even though I was there on... More

Hair in sheets, smelled like urine and deodorizer, bug bites in bed, fleas? Who knows, clogged sink with brown water, toilet didn't flush and I woke up with a sore throat. Stay at Cozy Inn, we went there the night before for two nights thought we were leaving the area so unfortunately we checked out and thought we'd get lucky... More

Not the nicest of neighborhoods, but OK. VERY convenient to the 5 Freeway. Rooms clean but looked like some things like refrigerator may have been taken out. No coffee service in room, but is available in AM in the motel office. Adequate parking. VERY crazy difficulties getting onto the $3-extra internet. Solved by extremely persistent front desk person. Room had... More

We just needed a place to sleep on our way from San Francisco to San Diego, and wanted to get south of LA. I can't even describe the smell that was overwhelming from the minute we walked in the door. Urine and cheap deodorizer are two distinct odors that come to mind. The sheets were stained and there was little... More

For us was a good experience, staff very friendly, we ask for more towels and we got them in less than five minutes, no noises outside we stayed for two nights and slept very well, good choice for a good night sleep after visiting Disneyland, clean rooms. The only thing we didn't like is that you have to pay for... More

If you're a non smoker, who wants to get a good night sleep, this is not the place for you. If you're a vagabond who pay for the room in quarter and cents and smoke like a chimney, that's your place. For normal people it's not. Low, low, low class.
