I checked in to Motel 6. The staff was in a heated argument with two young ladies and was very rude to them. When i approached the counter, he was somewhat more pleasant, but very short with me. I was put in a room on the back side of the Motel. In Eureka and the area this motel is in, that's not a good thing. This area is ridden with crime, in fact there were over 20 narcotics and other police cars in the parking lot staying there. (probably more that were unmarked) The room was aged, the carpet stained throughout, the bedding somewhat scary, and the bed frame had been broken right where you sit down by the night stand so there was a big dip in that part of the bed. I didn't expect much for the price, but what I've always found with Motel 6 is they are at least a clean, cheap room to spend the night. Over $60 to stay in a drug zone is not ok. When they asked for copies of ID rather than just seeing it, they said the police come by once a night and go through all of the guests ID copies and check to see if there are any outstanding warrants against them? WHAT? Motel 6 violating privacy at their whim? This is a hotel full of homeless drug addicts. That's the way they treat you and you aren't going to get any better treatment driving up in an $80,000 Mercedes. I have stayed at both Motel 6 in Humboldt County. One seems to run in police mode (Eureka) and one seems to let the drugs and prostitution run rampant (Arcata). I will never stay at either one again. There is just no justification on the rude service you get from their employees
