“SCABIES!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Thought this was an OK place to stay even took a survey saying had a nice stay but 2 weeks to the day of staying here my husband turned up with "the worst case of scabies" the doctor had ever seen. when trying to figure it out she said it almost definitely came from staying at this hotel as the incubation time for it turning up matches when we stayed here DON"T stay here!

Dirty bed spread on arrival, no facial tissue, no shampoo supplied!! Very small room with two queen beds with no space to move around. More expensive than others in the same class.
3 people not satisfied.

I stayed here in March 2011 and was completely satisfied, so I used it again this year. Comfortable accomodations at a reasonable price. The British lady on the desk during the day was especially nice.

Motel 6 experience many years ago was not a good one. I have changed my tune to the return of a boutique style motel in Motel 6. I am on a road trip for now and staying in many Motel 6 motels. There is no fee for a pet and the price is good. The rooms are much smaller than other hotels, but Motel 6 is consistent in the upkeep of their motels. This particular motel is embracing because of the staff and location. Very friendly and helpful staff.

The energy here feels good and I will repeat again, it is because of the area and staff. It isn't noisy between rooms! I paid almost a $100 the other night at a Best Western near Santa Rosa and the workers were very noisy the next day. The room I was in was right across from the cleaning room. Expensive and too big for the management to keep up with the employees and guests!

Motel 6 is small enough to maintain!

Thanks to the employees here in Monterey!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a tub. The tubs are big. Some rooms only have showers, but plenty of hot water...

Front desk person (jessica) was rude and had an attitude the entire 3 days I was here. Would recommend you go someplace else, if possible.

Room Tip: Avoid this motel.

The hotel is very well located, the rooms are pretty spacious (bed, shower, toilet, fridget and extra sink). The room is old but clean and the owner is very nice/helpful.
Though it is located on a main road, the rooms are still far enough from the road and so there's no noise you can sleep at night, no trouble.

We stayed one night here, having selected it based on previous good experiences with Motel 6 chain in general and on reviews on this site. We were not entirely thrilled with our stay, for reasons I'll list below. But first, the positives:
The front desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, and while nothing appeared brand new it was all in excellent condition. The beds were comfortable and the pillows were fluffy. We slept well and were refreshed for the next leg of our trip.

Now, the negatives:
I would not recommend this particular Motel 6 to anyone traveling with younger kids, as we were. It's located on the same block as an adult theatre and bookstore and a shady-looking club, and the neighboring guests were engaged in some loud all-night activities. Also, the motel backs up to the fairgrounds, so check the timing of your visit. We inadvertently arrived the night the county fair began its load-in, and were awakened by lots of semi truck activity the next morning.
Most dismaying to my child, though, was that the pool was filthy and not usable.

For the price charged, we might as well have paid another $20-30 and stayed somewhere a little more upscale and been a little less worried about it all.
