I checked in last night and right when I pulled in, I realized I made a mistake. FYI this area is surrounded by hotels and I would have paid an extra $40 to stay somewhere better. The exterior is dingy and faces the freeway. The staff was adequate and so are the rooms. Nothing fancy. Only pro is that this... More

Stayed here for one night.. Right on highway east to find,I did feel when I entered that the staff at desk were not very welcoming and felt unsafe as homeless are standing around outside.. You would wonder why they would be outside the hotel as it's practically on the highway and usually they stay in more downtown areas.. I felt... More

Terrible place to stay mostly because of the front desk reception workers' attitudes. They were AWFUL.. RUDE, went out of their way to be ugly and to make sure they did not provide any help at all when asked. When asked if they had any paper towels and window cleaner to clean sap from their trees that got on our... More

We stayed in room 125 at this motel for three nights and would not recommend staying there to anybody. The room was dirty and we only had one towel for the two of us. The towel itself was dirty, the chair was broken the TV did not work properly and so on. By far the worst experience however was that... More

Just to be clear... this hotel allows smoking. You may like this or you may not .. that is up to you but I think it should be made clear so that the traveler can book or not book if it is a problem. Yes, all the rooms have no smoking signs clearly on the door ... but they smell... More

At check in the front desk staff was rude unprofessional and treated customers as a burden. I booked through booking.com and the staff member would not honor the price that I booked at and charged me at standard rate dispite proof of booking at a lower rate. I was in town for a major event that had every near by... More

Haven't even made it to my room yet. I was going to check in and saw a long line so I decided to go to Walmart. Came back, and there was STILL the same long line of people waiting to check in. Currently, I'm in line still with 3 more couples ahead of me. It's been 15 minutes now, and... More

As a Senior with dogs, I've learned that no hotel chain out there surpases the benefits of staying with Motel 6. This property also has newly remodeled rooms, which I found very well done and highly sensible. No more old, dirty carpeting! The entire room can be cleaned with a bucket of water and a mop. The bathrooms are ingenious.... More

We were late in trying to find a dog-friendly hotel on Valentine's Day during a road trip and this is the only one we could find searching BringFido.

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.
