Pay extra money to stay somewhere else. This hotel is frightening. The smell of cigarettes in the room is overwhelming. The front desk staff blame the guests for smoking. The common areas are filthy. No one seems to care. I moved to another hotel and took a long shower to wash the smell off me.

Here are the pluses: 1) comfortable bed, 2) nice TV (although few channels), 3) clean, 4) quiet air conditioner, 5) conveniently located and 6) very friendly, helpful staff. The minuses: 1) weirdly configured shower with low water pressure that made leg shaving impossible, 2) incredibly slow internet and 3) lots of bird feathers. We thought maybe some Satanic sacrifice had... More

We passed by this hotel just the last night. We found a girl receptionist really impolite and lazy. May be we disturb her while she was watching a movie or chatting on internet, because she has been very arrogant. This person must be a problem for this hotel and in general the good Motel 6 chian image. For us it... More

Someone spent an enormous amount of money to renovate this motel. The rooms are very nicely decorated with new flooring, furniture and accessories. It is a shame they have not decided to upgrade their service as well. I could not believe they had not even a continental breakfast. The coffee was limited from 6 AM to 9 and it consisted... More

This Motel was ok, it has a nice pool and lot's of rooms. When we stayed here ist was very crowded. But it was quiet at night. We just had a Problem with our room, we booked non- Smoking and got a Smoking room. But they did a Little Discount for us because of that.

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

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
