This was fairly cheap for San Diego, we stayed for 2 nights and paid $126 a night....but compared to other hotels we had on our road trip this was really expensive for what you get. Very basic, clean and tidy enough with free morning coffee, and quite far from everything in San Diego....you really need a car to get around.

Love this hotel. Love the location. Till I booked over a 3 day weekend. Memorial weekend I booked 4 nights. I called the reservation number and told them I would be arriving on Friday instead of Thursday they told me that if I do my rates will go up to $109 per night versus $71 per night which was the...

This stay started off wrong with the front desk person wasting my time trying to find someone else a "cheaper hotel in the San Diego area"; Then she though I was with that person. The front desk person had all the charm of a fire plug; anyway it had just rained in San Diego and so with all the moisture... More

We needed to be in San Diego the weekend of Comic Con (but not to dress up as Klingons!) and this was the only reasonably priced motel we could find (even then of course we paid well over the odds). It wasn't in an ideal location for us as we wanted to be nearer to Poway but turned out to... More

It seems to me that Motel 6 has remodeled most of their hotels in recent years.....This Motel 6 is no different. It's small, quiet, and delivered EXACTLY what I have come to expect. Simple check-in and Check out..given the basic essentials needed for a 1-2 night stay. Everybody was polite, and stayed out of sight and mind for the duration... More

With an ill family member in the neighborhood, we didn't want to impose by staying in their home. So, we picked a place close by their home a BIG mistake. Our stay was horribly disturbing and we left during our first night. There is a combination of parking lot ladies and Korean girls coming from the restaurant. Over the coarse... More

Located at the middle of major san diego attractions, 15 minutes drive to center. Mcdonald's is walk distance, Eating and Laundry can easily be reached by car. Poor in room equipments: you can hear loud noise from the wall, especially the water sound from next door. Late arrived guests usually made a lots of noise. Suggest to prepare ear protection.

Any motel that you have to drive down an alley past a chinese restaurant and 2 cop cars should have screamed to us to turn around. We decided to keep our reservations anyways, but that was a mistake. The drug deals and meth addicts/hookers in the parking lot, meant we rushed right to our room. There we were hit with... More

I've stayed here twice now. Overall, it's decent lodging for the price. Don't expect plush towels or other niceties. If you want clean, simple and cheap, this the place. Less than 15 minutes from downtown San Diego (depending on traffic).

Room was clean, carpet worn a bit. Bath Towels were threadbare and small...probably the cheapest possible. Everything worked, hot water was hot. Basic. As a value for the money, it was acceptable at best. I'll be using Motel 6 now and then...no major complaints and it was handy.
