After a great vacation in nearby Monterey we headed into San Jose. We have stayed in Motel 6s before without issue and this one had a decent rating and a very good price. We arrived and I had an urgent need to use the restroom, the front desk employee did me a solid and got my room key ready ASAP... More

The room was very clean, but no frills whatsoever, no frig, no closet (a couple shelfs and hooks with hangers), no iron, no shampoo and no hair dryer. TV was a good one. Beds were firm. A/C worked well. The pool was nice, it is not heated, but just warm enough due to the weather. It was not quiet and... More

Simple motel as generally are the motels from the same brand... It was clean and was near Palo Alto. Walls were too thin. Not many parking lot available. Price is higher considering is a Motel 6 (they charged $90 for only one night (with taxes).

Checked in to this Motel as I was too tired to drive back home. I was pleasantly surprised the rooms have been updated. It's infamous bedspreads are gone. New beds, new TVs new AC etc. Front Desk clerks were friendly and helpful.

Motel 6 South. I stayed here last week for a business conference in nearby San Jose and was really disappointed. Check in was handled by a gentleman who didn't speak to me. Marks on the walls and door. Old CRT TV in unit. Directly across the street is Motel 6 North and is much different in attitude and appearance. Very... More

I stay at Motel 6 everywhere I go and I am extreemely impressed with the customer service of all the employees. I would recoment this M6 to my friends and family. It is close to several resturants and stores and employees went out of their way to give directions. Janice and John were extreemly helpful.

The main reason I rate this Motel 6 above average is because of the staff. They were warm and friendly and made me feel welcome. The room I got was very clean. There are two diners within view. Easy on and off Highway 101. Nice pool! There is plenty of parking and I got a room I could park in... More

This one is IMO one of the better motel 6 locations. Staff is always friendly and rooms are clean. It is a motel 6 so not much more to talk about. That is what they are designed for. clean affordable place to stay. Beds are your average motel 6 bed. nothing spectacular but doesn't keep you up at night. Good... More
