“What a surprise!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2015

At the end of a long day of driving I decided to stop for the night and, for no particular reason, exited Hwy 99 at a Kingsburg. The only motel in sight was the Motel 6---not my customary first choice. Boy, was I surprised! BIG room, two queen beds, flat-screen HD tv, free in-room wi-fi, refrigerator, and microwave. The dressing area was expansive, as was the bathroom, and the entire room was spotlessly clean. Who'd a-thunk it? Sure, the amenities were otherwise as expected, but the pool area was likewise well-maintained, and twice while I was there I watched the owner-manager, a gentleman named Harry Patel, patrol the grounds looking for papers, empty bags, etc., which contributed to the overall positive experience. Not fancy, but well worth the decision.

Room Tip: Freeway close, convenient to several gas stations and restaurants; well-suited for a "passing t...

Fairly new ownership. Was the old Swedish Inn. Even though the facility is old, Motel 6 has come in and Rehab'd the place. The rooms seem like a new facility. Clean and fresh. Right off the freeway several fast food places within walking distance. The front desk and other service was fast and good. In general this motel 6 was much more than your usual Motel 6.

Driving Hwy 99 between L.A. and S.F. can be an adventure. The one I had recently was not great. Tired and hot, we pulled off the Fwy to this Motel 6, in hopes it would be clean. Not the case. The bottom of the tub was brown, and there was ground-in black dirt on the edge of the bathroom floor. We looked forward to using the pool, but the surface of it and the hot tub were also brown. The water in the pool was almost as warm as the hot tub. Not very refreshing.

The worst thing was the pillows. Tiny and feather-filled. I got asthma from less than an hour of contact, and continued to cough after removing them from my bed. NOT a good night's sleep.
The restaurant next door was very good.
