“YIKES!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

I was told by staff that the "kitchenette" had everything I needed, I just need to get food.
The coffee pot had NO filters (not even the kind you rinse out) the kitchen sink cold water faucet did NOT work (yes I did tell them & they did offer to move me, but I did have an 80 lb Lab & a lot of stuff to move so I declined) I was NOT told the kitchenette was on the 3rd floor.
The door to my room was stuck, I had to throw my shoulder into the door to open it, the elevator moaned & groaned thought it would not make it up/down.
I had to pull the stopper out of the shower/tub so the water would drain!
I was told I was within walking distance to my event (WRONG 3 MILES AWAY)
I was NOT told that internet was good for 24 hours (yes you read that correctly 24 hours)
I was NOT told the TV was on a timer!! No I am not kidding!!!!
The cleaning staff did not clean my coffee pot or replace the plastic wrapped cups
BUT they did STEAL my lotion!
GO STAY ANYWHERE BUT HERE!!

Room Tip: DO NOT take room 325!!!!!

This motel 6 is above average and I would definitely recommend staying here. Did not want to stay in Salinas, California because my buddy read about all the drive by shootings. This place fit the bill. Good price and within a reasonable drive to Monterey and Carmel. Would stay here again and again and again.

This is the worst place you could ever stay in Gilroy. All night long you see drug deals in the parking lot and in the hallways. Gang members hanging out at the back entrance. With all this going on the motel has no parking lot cameras. I know this cause my car got broke into in their parking lot. No help or compassion from the front desk either. I will never go back to Gilroy because of this experience. Wish my rating could be a negative number.

Room Tip: Stay next door at the Hilton do not stay at the Motel 6. It may cost more but that keeps the rifraf...

It took a couple of tries, but on the 3rd one we got a good, unusually large room with kitchenette. First room had a fridge that did not work. Second had an air conditioner that did not work. A/C had a loud buzzer that went off every 20 seconds to every 2 minutes on schedule. We were at first told this is normal and would stop after an hour or so. It did not, and it also did not cool off the room. Front desk staff were friendly and accommodating in moving us to new rooms until they got it right. All kitchenettes are on 3rd floor with no luggage carts, but staff will help as needed, plus there is an elevator, of course. All rooms are "pet friendly" so beware barking dogs in room next to you. $3 day for wifi.

Clean, NO FRILLS, NO Breakfast (just coffee) just a room. As usual the bed was hard without much padding over the internal wire frame. I guess they don't have much competition, $55.00 is a lot to pay for a night at Motel 6.
