I recently discovered that Motel 6 had been bought by a French company who also owned Ibis & Accor hotels in France. I was familiar with them from a recent trip there. They were always reasonable and clean. I needed a inexpensive room for a very early flight out of SAN. The room was quite acceptable for the price, although... More

Stayed here on a referral from a family friend, so I thought it would be decent. I was wrong. The room was humid and with stench of urine from the bathroom. I immediately requested housekeeping to clean it, and she showed up. ..attitude and a dry rag. After standing there to watch her just spay the counter top..I asked for... More

I stayed for 2 weeks -- I'm accustomed to being in the flight path, so didn't bother me in the least, but some of the other guests apparently didn't realize what "right across from the airport" meant. There is a take-off curfew, so you can get a decent night's sleep between the last flight of the night and the first... More

My husband and I were on a quick weekend trip to San Diego from Las Vegas, and we had our german shepherd and shiba with us on the trip. San Diego is such a dog-friendly city, and we are fans of Motel 6 because they allow pets. This location was great for us. The rooms were laminate so we didn't... More

Very close to the airport and the price was very reasonable to stay over to catch and early flight. The front desk clerk we encountered at check-in should take some training in customer service. We arrived about 11 AM, early for check in and she let us know that there were no rooms available yet, when asked how long it... More

Having gotten stuck getting out on a flight during holiday rush, I chose this hotel as it offered good senior discounts and free shuttle from the airport. Ride to terminal early next morning cost $5.00 per person, but the pick up was timely. Older motel but clean and comfortable with free wifi and located such that an easy short walk... More

This hotel is very close to the airport.If you need to take an early flight or rest during a long trip it is good enough. Clean and confortable. Room service food is not very good but aceptable. Commercial or touristic áreas are also close to the hotel

Came out to San Diego for the Pats game and stayed at this hotel. Clean rooms and free parking. Planes fly very low over the hotel but the noise isn't bad with the windows shut and door closed. Within walking distance to the Midway and the ferries. It's about a mile walk to the USS Midway but definitely worth a... More

This motel is right by the airport? Aircraft come in low over the buildings up until quite late at night and from early in the morning. The pool was very dirty when we were there. They have an open plan storage, which, whilst modern is not that good. Rooms are OK. We stayed for 2 nights and really, that's about... More
