Very pleased with our stay! Excellent experience booking/staying at the Motel 6 on Mar Vista Drive in Vista, CA! Booked room through Hotels.com but called about a week before to ask for early check-in, hotel staff was friendly and helpful, not only arranging early check-in but also giving us a requested poolside/pool view room! The motel has recently been upgraded/renovated... More

First comes out of your mind when you say Motel 6 is cheap outdated Motel, but this actual Motel 6 is different. It's been renovated. Love the floors no more carpet which is so much better for people that has pets. Love the new beds and the plenty of parking. They also offer the sparkling water for guest in the... More

Close to 78, quiet area. Friendly, nice and informative staff at front desk. Free WiFi, little problem with tv remote but the staff came in right away to check and change battery. Overall a pleasant stay.

I haven't stayed at a Motel 6 in, well, I don't know. But when the hot water at my son's house went out (we were visiting and staying with him and his wife) - less than a mile away from this property - we needed a place to crash and shower. We hated leaving our son's, since this was our... More

Undergoing renovations on the exterior areas. The room is as pictured online. Recently renovated,laminate flooring very spare almost stark. There was not even a coffee pot in... More

I stayed at this motel on March 29, 2015. It was formerly called Americas Best Value Inn. I made advance reservations for "Americas Best Value Inn", but when I arrived, the sign said Motel 6. I was greeted by friendly and professional staff, and given my key along with the login information for the free WIFI, which by the way... More

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
