Oh, No, Right OFF the Freeway. We could not finish our stay, had to leave the next day. The traffic was heard all night long. Even the street exiting from the freeway, it's hard to slow down to a regular speed limit. So, I could hear traffic from both sides of my room. I had even gotten out of bed... More

Great location to walk to and from Bart, and other shopping. Updated to a modern look recently and I like not having carpet. Place was kept clean and for a business trip, clean and affordable was all that was needed. Staff was friendly while there and over the phone booking was really easy. I called the hotel directly the day... More

We spent one night at this motel, picked it at the last minute and just needed a place to crash. The pluses: Unlike other Motel 6s we have stayed at, this one seemed to have a higher class of clientele, with several Mercedes, Lexus, Acuras and other nice cars in the parking lot. Seemed much cleaner than many Motel 6s... More

We booked a room here for 4 nights and the room is clean and satisfactory but without wifi even though the motel says it has wifi. We have a macpro computer, ipads and iphones, which usually connect very fast. In this motel we were lucky if the wifi stayed connected to the wifi for 2 minutes at a times. It... More

This is a very good location for Walnut Creek. Good value. New "wood" flooring is a definite plus over usual questionable carpet in accommodations. Main room upgraded nicely. Bathroom needs help. Tub/shower old, stained, nicked, etc. Would stay here again.

Loved the flooring! There was no gross hotel carpet! All fixtures were updated and nice! Well light bathroom and good water pressure. Don't let outside fool you. Lady working front desk on my day of check in was very helpful with Chinese delivery suggestion and forks when delivery forgot. Hotel is near interstate but I never heard it inside room.... More

I had read the other reviews posted for this model and saw the negative ones, so I was hesitant to stay there, but ultimately had to because Motel 6 is one of the few motels that allow dogs. But we encountered none of the problems posted by other customers. Room 225 was clean enough, decent enough, and quiet enough; the... More

First, the staff were wonderful. At check-in we were told to ask for anything we might need from a hairdryer to safety pins, and at checkout a different woman asked us how our stay was and seemed genuinely interested in knowing. The rooms have clearly been renovated and looked very nice. The mattresses are on platforms, not box springs, but... More

This was a pleasant surprise when we pretty late needed a room for a night, on a short roadtrip. Floorboards in the room, fresh and clean bed and updated furnitures. A bit pricey for Motel 6 in general but beyond expectations for cleanliness and freshness. Right next to the hwy as any motel, and a vague smell of smoke even... More
