I love motels that have constant police patol and make you sign a waiver acknowledging that police come daily to run the id of all guests of the motel and to run all cars plates. Makes me feel right at home.

I've stayed in several Motel 6 properties across the country. At first blush this one seems nice, it appears clean and well maintained. They advertise free wifi and the location isn't too terrible. If nothing goes wrong during your stay it will likely be sufficient for the price paid. But if things do go wrong, don't expect to receive any... More

The room is spacious, modern, and very clean except the bathtub looked permanently stained as to where it looked dirty & was pealing. They only provide bars of soap, no shampoo/conditioner, no continental breakfast is provided, and the TV was small. But for the price that you pay it was ok, since it is inexpensive. There is free parking and... More

Clean, yes. However, there were no bedside lamps, in fact the only lighting source was the overhead bulb, set way over by the TV, so if you, like me, like to read in bed, you are out of luck. If you are a woman hoping to put on makeup without the blinds open for everyone to look in, also -... More

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 They did not mentioned it was a renovated property and most of the furnisher was outdated.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
