I often stay at Motel 6s, so I’m familiar with their budget-level rooms. Generally I think they’re a very good deal, especially in bigger cities where room rates are high. When I checked in the pleasant woman apologized for not having a downstairs room, but said she was giving me their “best room.” If that is their best room, I would suggest you search elsewhere -- Bakersfield has several similarly-priced hotels in the same area.
There are plenty of electrical outlets in the room, but most don’t work. The motel is aware of this, they’re using a power strip for the TV, microwave and refrigerator. The only place I could plug in my laptop was near the baseboard next to the front door, not the most comfortable place to get any work done. By morning, the toilet no longer flushed. The shower: is the perfect height for very short people, the floor has been poorly painted and looks disgusting with a sharp metal disc masquerading as a drain cover. One coat hanger is evidently all the management can afford. The sink / vanity has been moved in with the toilet and shower, meaning it is impossible to escape the irritatingly loud fan.
The good: as others have mentioned, this Motel 6 has been updated. They’ve eliminated carpeting and are using attractive flooring which is a good choice for keeping the room clean, especially since they allow pets. The motel is just a block away from a drive-through Starbucks.
