For the price in the area, a good deal. But there were issues. First, check-in took forever. The clerk was in slow motion. Not good after a long days drive. First room I got the key didn't work. We changed room and, yes, key didn't work. I walked to the nearby Denny's for dinner and they had fixed the lock.... More

Location is good, restaurants and gas station nearby . Staff is friendly. Room is small but okay for the price paid. My only complain is I wish the water pressure of the shower could be stronger, it takes a long time for me to wash my hair even though my hair is only to the shoulder level. Other things are...

Hadn't stayed in a Motel 6 for many years, but this was the best price and location for a week night stay. I'd asked for a quiet room off the street and away from the office. "JS" at the desk came through! Room had excellent lighting--better than many other "bargain" places I've stayed. The A/c was quiet, too. I will... More

I've stayed here many times. They've recently upgraded the rooms by removing carpet, installing Pergo-style flooring, new counters, sinks, towel racks and t.v.'s. Makes the rooms feel much cleaner. There is a restaurant in front of the property that has delivery trucks arrive around 6am so don't take a room across the lot from them if you plan on sleeping... More

My room smells strongly of past guests smoking heavily in the room, despite it being a non-smoking room. The wifi, which costs $3, is Very Slow. So slow that I can't watch videos on my laptop. Car park has some iffy looking cars but folks seem generally safe. Area around also seems safe. Try the Dish n Dash just down... More

I've never stayed at Motel 6. I always assumed it wasn't right for me, that it might be dirty, loud, unfriendly. I'm not sure where this came from. Maybe movies from the past showing motels in a bad light! I was wrong. This experience is pretty great (I am in the middle of my 4 night stay). It's been renovated.... More

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).
