I used to study at University of California Riverside - so I know pretty well the area.
I decided to pay a visit to some teachers of mine and stayed at the motel 6 by the University Village. The location is great, since it is walking distance form commerce & from the university. However, this motel 6 is in pretty bad shape (smell, really). I knew this motel 6 was reputed as risky - but I'm pretty used to traveling alone in "not-that-classy" places. However, it did seem risky and I didn't feel safe (which clearly means it wasn't) : strange people all the time, "guest" policy insisting on the risks in staying at this hotel, reminders not to come back too late and to lock the door, and so on.
In my opinion, you can find a better place on univ. ave, maybe a bit more expansive, but quieter.
