Recently stayed at Motel 6 Hotel Circle in San Diego and it was OK. The rooms are small but clean .The bed was not so comfortable (too stiff for my liking). The hotel staff were nice and very friendly.Our room was recently renovated (fo hardwood flooring\new paint).You get what you pay for!

I had a non-smoking room yet it smelled like smoke. I was told I would have a refrigerator in my room when I made my reservation yet there was not one. Motel 6 charges $2.99 per day for Internet access yet more luxury hotels are free. What the F&ck? My neighbors were constantly noisy all around. Loud talking and walking... More

Motel was Ok. Very few amenities. No clock, tissues, hairdryer, etc... WiFi was not free but $2.99 for one device for a 24 hour period. You have to use all these different codes for each device for each day. and pay $2.99 for each code. What a pain!!!!!. Also, the rooms had no carpet, which means the guests above you... More

The Motel 6 was a cheaper place to stay for San Diego Pride weekend but you rarely get more than what you pay for. Our $450+ for three nights got us: a bug in the bathroom, mattresses on platforms without box springs, no beverages in the soda machines so no water or nothing to drink unless off property, cheap cheap...

The rooms in this hotel have been updated and have a fresh "hip" look and at night there is security controlling who can and can't park at the hotel. This is an upscale Motel 6! Where I rate them down is in the lack of amenities..... No blow dryer, no shampoo, no conditioner...... Really? Just two little bars of soap?... More

Rather than drive home one evening, we made decided to stay in the area. Not wanting to spend a lot, we chose the Motel 6, and truthfully....should have just made the drive home. When you walk into the room for the first time, it feels like walking into an Ikea showroom. That in itself is not necessarily a bad thing.... More

newly upgraded rooms look beautiful, the staff was courteous the atmosphere was heavy. the old manager would come out and greet new arrivals, the new one is seldom seen. The old general manager has been promoted and a succesion of replacements cannot measure up to his caliber. new and bright on the outside, but the heart has been torn out.... More

Once we got the key card to our room we opened the door and realized the room was occupied. The people weren't there but we had access to someone else's room. THEY GAVE US KEYS TO SOMEONE ELSE'S ROOM! Unacceptable! We stayed only because every other hotel in the area was booked. We went to attend a wedding... Coming back... More
