We had vacation at Legoland, San Diego Sea World and the Zoo from July 14th. We chose this Motel 6 due to lack of availability of 2-bed rooms and higher price of other lodging locations. This motel location also fits geographically for our 2 families group. The professional photos shown within Tripadvisor seem current. However, the 3rd photo showing the... More

I stayed for one night and it was awful. There was no table or chair to sit on. I complained to front desk and he said they were doing away with them. There were cock roaches everywhere and stains on walls and bathroom. Disgusting

When we first booked our room they stated that it was new property. They did not mentioned it was a renovated property and most of the furnisher was outdated. I understand we get what we paid for but a little honesty will be appreciated. As we stepped in to our non-smoking room we automatically smelled the smoke. We quickly called... More

The website shows modernized rooms, but when you get to your room you see that it is still all the ancient furnishing and dirty carpets. When you ask the front desk they tell you that, contrary to the photos and claims on the website, the upgrades have not been done. In my mind that is called "false-advertising". The rates are...

For 6 years, I stayed at this hotel whenever I came to visit friends in San Marcos. The staff was always honest and friendly and as a single woman, I felt safe and welcome. Now that it is under new ownership and all the previous staff is gone, there is no reason to stay here. The desk attendant refused to... More

This place is in such need of upkeep. Rooms feel dirty and smell dirty. Holes in the wall, cig burns everywhere, just very unpleasant. Front desk person not very friendly. We regretted choosing this place. Pool police taped off. Maybe under repair.

I've stayed here three times with friends, and each time I never paid more than $62 dollars for a two bed smoking room at short notice. Cheap, pretty clean and have wood floors which makes it easier to stay clean. Only downfall I experienced that made me not go back was when I stayed in December 2012. I saw two... More

I booked a really great rate here for a 4 night stay. When I checked in there was no soap in the room. I tried to call the front desk to advise but the phone was busy. After several tries, I had to walk to the front desk to ask for soap. There were cigarette burns in the sheets and... More
