Yes, being right by the airport there is a bit of plane noise, I found that for the most part though, the place is insulated enough that it did not disturb my sleep. The room was clean but not the most comfortable. The hard wood floors are elegant, and probably a necessity considering the hotels proximity to the beach, but... More

Stayed here because of an early morning flight. Read the reviews and hoped they were not correct. For that area it is inexpensive but you do get what you pay for. Walked around in my socks in the room and they turned black just like another reviewer stated. The pool was green and black and need desperate cleaning, good thing... More

Rather dowdy property that looks like it hasn't been upgraded for a few decades. Noisy place that's right in the landing pattern for the airport, and jets frequently land coming 2 or 300 feet directly above motel. Bathroom was pretty dingy; many caulk jobs and touchups over the years! Reasonably friendly staff but don't expect great service cause you probably... More

Cheap and very close to the airport. Beware of their shuttle- it's not free. No breakfast, sketchy neighborhood, far from amenities, bare bones room, noisy place because you hear the planes flying over you (use ear plugs). Free wifi.

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

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
