“Not Convenient location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I am very familiar with Motel 6 and never had a problem in the past; so I booked this motel6 for 5-days while visiting my daughter in Fresno, CA> The following are things to take into consideration: 1) this hotel is NOT PART of Motel 6 corporation it's independently owned and operated 2) bad location right on business Street Shaw and on-ramp to 99FWY. IN POSSIBLE to make a left turn to get out of hotel. Traffic 24/7 3) NO BREAKFAST only vending machine available and coffee (which tasted awful) in the lobby. I walked to Shell gas station next door for coffee. 4) NO SPA 5) NO INTERNET it does have WiFi but the internet keeping coming and going 5) NO CABEL it was temporary not available also kept coming and going; had no guide available so you don't know what's on. ONLY available local channels which has nothing on but the news which repeats it self over and over. 6) NO HOUSEKEEPING they come and make you bed and give you fresh towels and that is all NO Changing of bed sheets; no vacuuming; no dusting; or cleaning the bathroom which by they way the toilet was covered with stains and black around rim. 7) Bathroom VERY small you can barley get in and shut the door for privacy. Shower very noisy you can hear your neighbors showering 8) neighbors slamming door shuts at all hours 9) lighting in room was very dim; NOW THE GOOD THING The bed is very comfortable and the pillows are absolutely great! ( I wish I could have bought one) and the price was in my budget $296.00 for 5-night. Their is a fridge in the room which was very convenient as I went grocery shopping to help the cost of spending money eating out. My recommendation would be pay a little more and go to Day's in for $20 more a night you get continental breakfast; full housekeeping service; cabel; wifi; pool w/ spa and easy exit out of hotel to get out on Shaw.

Room Tip: go down the block to Days INN

Room smelled like wet animal fur. There were no towels or new soap in room. There was an old used bar of soap in the bathtub. There were dried dribbles of coffee stains on the sink counter. The rug was filthy...looked like it hadn't been vacuumed in a couple weeks. I'd be willing to bet the sheets were not freshly changed. We were very, very disappointed in Motel 6. Don't think we will stay at a Motel 6 again for a very, very long time. Very run down and worn out hotel. Would definitely not recommend this particular hotel location. So disappointing for a family fun trip,

By far one of the best Motel 6 I have been to. Clean and comfortable. Staff is nice and courteous, especially Jaterica. She always makes my stay feel welcomed and is very attentive. Highly recommend this location.

One of the worst Motel 6 I have stayed in. The carpet was filthy with duct tape over a rip. I heard noise outside all night. The desk welcome was okay. The stay was better than sleeping in my car, I think. Maybe.

Worst place we ever stayed. Mold in the shower, blood on the sheets and drug deals outside. Carpet was moist from who knows what. SemI trucks parked on the street and ran all night. Stayed up all night to make sure our car didn't get stolen.

Based upon other opinions on Tripadvisor we stayed one night at this less than "spendid" establishment. The front desk was very friendly and our 2 dogs got to stay for free. That's about the only positives I can expound. Obvious drug deals were taking place in the parking lot with shady characters lurking around the area.The carpet in the room was scary & can only imagine what the dark blue was hiding. The Seahawks-Panthers game was beiing broadcast but not on any of the channels on their TV. I swear to god there was a tow truck channel but not the bloody NFL. The wifi was completely no-fi, there was a "fountain" of water sqirting out of the ground on the corner of the building and the gas station across the parking lot had a car wash that sounded like a small jet plane taking off. I cannot fathom how & where the other reviewers actually live in order for them to recommend this place but may I suggest the raise their standards a wee bit before their next contribution to Tripadvisor.

I stayed at this motel 6 for over a month along with my company after staying at the other motel 6 in fresno. The little extra we paid was worth every penny. The rooms were well maintained, and staff was very friendly and accommodating. Gladys at the front desk was very professional and made sure all our needs were meet which is a breath of fresh air when you stay at multiple motels across the state. Highly recommended this motel if you value good service and clean towels!
