“Comfortable, clean and excellent value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

The service at the front desk was helpful and friendly, the room was spacious and clean and the price was very fair. We travel with our dogs frequently on the 99 and it was great to find a good rest stop in this area. Our room (204) had a good firm king bed, a fridge and a microwave. There's a small patch of grass (unfenced)near the pool that our dogs were able to use with supervision. All in all, a good find for us. We'll be back.

Not being familiar with the area, I booked 3 nights here for a trip to Yosemite. We drove 2 hours each way to go to the Park each day. My fault. The motel was fine and met all our needs. Even tho it was in a high-traffic area it was not noisy. A Costco was less than a block away and was great for getting gas and other supplies. I had my Chihuahua with me and the motel is great for traveling with pets, very 'pet friendly' and no extra charge.

Thanks very much for your review. We're glad your stay was a pleasant one. We do work hard to see that each and very guest is satisfied with their stay. This is their "home away from home" for a night, and we want our guests to feel comfortable and safe.
At the same time, we get reviews from past guests that were dissatisfied with their stay. Those reviews alert us to what can be better; what we need to work on to make sure our guests are happy.
If you're ever in our area again, we hope you'll choose us as your "stopover" for the night. And we hope you'll recommend us to any friends or family member as they head our way
Thanks again for your review

We stayed at this Motel 6 for one night in August in order to accommodate a quick trip to Yosemite (approximately 1 hours and 45 minutes away from the park - be warned!). What a pleasant surprise. We were looking for something inexpensive - we payed $50 for the night - but also ended up with a spacious room, a nice pool, friendly and helpful staff members. Unfortunately I had had unfair preconceived notions in mind before staying at the Motel 6, but I can now honestly say that because of this very positive experience, I would consider this hotel chain again. As mentioned, Yosemite is a bit far, but if you want to save money on lodging and don't mind the (beautiful) drive, I would definitely recommend this Motel 6 as a viable option.

For the ridiculously cheap price i paid for three nights just last July, this Motel 6 was outstanding value. Yes, its a basic room, but all i needed was a basic room as i spent every day out at Yosemite. Its a long drive but Yosemite and surrounding hotels and motels were full. This motel was just a street away from the highway to Yosemite. My room had a decent TV, two queen beds and a small table. The linoleum floor kind of adds to the sparse feeling of the room, (which had a great air con) but its kind of comforting to be able to see how clean the floor is. It can not possibly hide any dirt or bugs. Yes, the decor is minimal but it was fine. My bed was also very comfortable and housekeeping did a great job every day. The reception staff were wonderful and very professional; always friendly and helpful. The bath towels were on the small side and rather thin, but again, for the price, i can not complain. They did the job. I wouldnt mind slightly better quality soap but you could always bring your own. You would also need to bring your own shampoo and conditioner, which was not easy to find at the nearby gas station, which only had shampoo. The outdoor pool was really clean too. Its small but perfect for cooling off. Motel 6's can be a bit hit or miss but this one is a winner. I felt very safe and comfortable here and very pleased with the money I saved. Thanks, guys!

This was our second stop on a roadtrip after visiting Yosemite on the way to Napa. Quite an ordinary town with lots of accommodation and food options. We chose motel6 as we had stayed in one the night before. Rooms were clean with nice beds, quite a funky design and were very spacious. Pool outside was nice. Front desk staff were pleasant. Other hotel guests were an interesting mix but remained quiet during the night so we had a good night's sleep here.

We come down to Dos Palos often to visit relatives n usually search for place to stay. I know we will b returning to this motel6 it was great. I appreciate the service we received from Ronelle I really felt like I was at the holiday inn or something. She got me a room on the first floor because she seen I was having a hard time walking. I didn't have to ask. She also helped me with my wifi cause I couldn't get to work. I really felt at home, the room was basic it had a fridge n microwave I was surprised the room was clean the bed comfy. The place was packed but it was quiet if ur looking for a reasonable place to stay with friendly service from the staff this is it!!!I WILL BE COMING BACK HERE......
