5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Coming from Chicago on route 66, we stayed there for one night. Room was correct. Parking close. Nice welcome too. Coffee available in the morning. This is very sad that wifi is not included. Not so much restaurant close to this place

I assume most readers are familiar with the basic Motel 6 experience. There are certainly reasons why I have typically chosen this versus other budget hotels when I have come to San Diego once a year for the past few years. This hotel had the "modernized" revamp of rooms a few years ago, to a clean "Ikea" look with very... More

Great location. Walk anywhere to see the sites and have access to great restaurants. I found the internet, which you pay for, somewhat inconsistent. No fridge. Good, helpful staff. Quiet place. Cable TV OK. AFFORDABLE. Good choice.

Friendly, helpful staff. Tiny room but clean and modern. It could have better lighting, though, in the room with the shower and the bedroom area. It's within walking distance to restaurants, Amtrak and the trolley. However, if internet is important to you, find another hotel. Surprisingly, Wifi is not free, although it's listed as one of the amenities, and the... More

Stayed here for three nights in May. Great location with walking distance to both little Italy and downtown. Clean room, efficient and quiet air conditioning, good price, free parking and easy access to highway. We got a room facing the street and there were some noise, but it didn't really bother us but could be a problem if you wake... More

As with any Motel 6 or similar chain, you're going to get what you pay for. Obviously don't stay here if you are looking for luxury accommodations, but it's a reasonably priced option that is close to everything that Little Italy and the greater downtown area has to offer, including the train/trolley. I picked this place knowing I would only... More

Its a basic motel with clean rooms. Rooms are very basic good for business traveler. I won't suggest it for families. Staff is very co operative. Over all it was good experience other than when I asked to extend my stay they told me we are full booked.

Stayed here for four nights while visiting San Diego on a road trip. This Motel 6 is in a great location, a short walk to the Gaslamp district and harbour, and just around the corner from Little Italy. It's also cheap, and while the rooms are clean and nicely decorated, it does feel cheap. The mattress wasn't actually connected to... More
