I have been staying at this Motel 6 for over 7 years when I come to Ventura to visit family. I've seen this place at its worst and at its best. They recently renovated the rooms. They have vinyl "hardwood" floors, new Samsung flat screen tvs, new counters, sinks, and towel holders. Our room still had the bathtub, so not... More

Check out the new Motel 6 now I know that people might not like this motel but the new rooms are great. We have been staying their for years in Ventura, Ca. You are close to the Beach and interstate. Now if you have dogs or cats this is the place to stay. This is a no frills motel. The... More

I was hesitant on staying here because of the numerous negative reviews, but we were running out of options for the night, and they were the only hotel within 30 miles in our price range, so we took a chance and stayed here. I'm so glad we did! The outside of the building is very attractive and clean, and our... More

any motel that allows "long term" residency will always attract a certain clientele, as is usually evidenced by plants in the window of their respective unit. within five minutes of arrival, the tatted out hsipanic at the top of the stairs is joined by his equally appointed brethren, and a discussion as to current issues with “south side versus north...

So I travel for a living and I stayed everything from the Fairmont to well uh THIS, so its not like I expect a Motel 6 to be a Hyatt or even a Best Western but I feel hotels / motels have some obligation of providing at least a safe environment. Had I not had a dog with me or... More

Economy lodging is difficult to come by in this part of the world so this motel is an option. It may not be as fancy as Sandyland reef right down the road but I feel more comfortable here. The service was excellent and yes it's time for some improvements which I believe is in the making. I don't really like... More

This is a very nice Motel 6, three story with an elevator. Room are typical Motel 6, but property is well kept and nice looking. I thought the 101 freeway noise would bother me, as I was on 3rd floor on freeway side. Once the door was closed on my room you could not hear traffic. Nothing really special but... More

I have been on a cross-country trip and was pleasantly surprised by other motel 6's I've stayed at. Not this one. The rooms smell like wet dog, the linens on the beds are stained and had cigarette burns in them. The carpets are old, dirty and stained. Not worth the savings.

I have stayed there about 1/year for the past 10 years and for the price it was always a good deal. This year, they pushed their luck as the motel is so run down, as if they haven't invested a penny in upkeep for years. The 2nd bed was right up against the air conditioner which meant it had to...
