We needed a last minute hotel for a funeral so we booked this one because the price was great. Should have paid more for a better hotel. When I called to book, the front desk clerk was rude and snippy with me. The hotel is basic and the room is adequate but filthy!!! After a shower with cold water (hot... More

This Motel 6 has been remodeled, very nice and clean, good location close to the freeway. Room service every day, not enough towels though. No free WiFi, bummer. Free coffee in the morning. Budget hotel.

This is really a minimalist motel to be kind but there wasn't even shampoo or a hair dryer no iron or ironing board and of course no coffee pot or micro and mini fridge The room was a bed and open shelves. No table or chairs not even a clock. If you want any amenities bring them with you.

We stay at this property often, 2 or 3 times a year. I have noticed that they don't give you a correct amount when quoting your total bill, including tax. When questioned they claim it varies and can't be calculated when booking online. ???? questionable. The motel is nice and clean and quiet for being next to the 5 fwy.

We stayed here 3 nights while in town for a family gathering. I'll start off by saying that the motel itself is in a weird place to access, with the entrance to the parking lot right on a freeway off-ramp. It's easy to pass, and difficult to get into when cars are exiting the freeway - so just a heads... More

I consider myself somewhat of a hotel snob. I'd rather pay extra money and stay somewhere nice, secure, with a lot of amenities and with great customer service. Unfortunately, Motel 6 did NOT make me feel safe or secure and it literally had NO amenities. This was the kind of place that you have to constantly keep peeking out of... More

I've stayed in Motel 6s all across the country and this one is rather quite nice in comparison to many. First, instead of grubby beige carpet that is standard in many budget hotels, there's laminate wood grain flooring in these rooms. Seems more hygienic to me, and is generally just more contemporary-looking. Other pluses: It's a 15-minute drive from Balboa... More

Stayed two nights in April 2015. Went online and set reservations with a few health requirements. When I arrived, front desk very helpful, ensuring my requirements were met. Room was very clean and looked like it was recently renovated. Bed was good and being a Senior, check out time was extended beyond normal checkout time. Prices, with AARP card, .was... More

My son and I went for a quick weekend trip to visit my other son who attends UCSD. This hotel is clean, rooms are renovated and it is right off the highway. The front desk staff was polite and parking was free ( there were many parking spaces available as well)! We were only there to sleep, it is a... More

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.
