Just good enough to take a break and get some good sleep. Rooms are clean and the ambiance quiet. Ample parking and multiple food joints within a mile. Look for Jay or Jemma for a quick checkin and any help.

I chose this hotel based on the reviews on this site and was pleasantly surprised. The location was easy access off the 101 and there was a Walgreens and Walmart on the other side of the 101 to buy any necessities at. The staff could not be more pleasant and friendly and we had a double room for around $91... More

There are a LOT of very expensive properties in Thousand Oaks, so for a $62 + tax per night room, this was pretty good. Not great, but hey, it's a motel and it's that price! PROS: The rooms are very recently refreshed/refurbished with all new everything-hardwood floors (so much nicer than a gross carpet), new modern furniture, platform beds (with... More

I hated to give it such a low review, but had it not been for the staff, it would have gotten a 1. I realize one problem was just an unfortunate event, but this was not a great experience. First, the good. I arrived and the first thing I noticed is it's a very nice neighborhood, so I didn't feel... More

I stay in hotels 300 + nights yearly. This hotel is one that I will use every time I'm in the area. The building and grounds are well maintained and the lobby is bright and inviting. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Overall, a great place to stay. Call ahead if you want to park a large... More

For folks who travel with dogs, there's always a little apprehension with a new Motel 6. While none are luxurious, most are at least marginally ok, a few are really awful, and a few are excellent. This is one of the excellent ones. The room had the modular mid-century look with shiny wood floor, and a heater with an actual... More

Basically you get what you pay for. If you expectations are five star you will be disappointed. This is not marketed at such. The room and linen was clean. Everything worked except the wifi (which you pay for) for which I was refunded without a problem the next morning. Worthwhile staying at while on overnight travels.

The Ol' Man and I stayed here one night with our two Boston Terriers during a work trip. The property has a couple very small grassy areas for dog walking and they have doggy pot bag stations. The room was comfortable, clean, and good for a basic stay. Per usual, bring your own shampoo and lotion because Motel 6 only... More

We chose it as an affordable option to spend a night on the way from Santa Monica to coastal national parks. The rooms were definitely updated recently so it looked nice and clean. they don't have free wifi, you have to purchase it, but i guess that's why they keep their room prices low... Staff was very pleasant, but for... More
