“you get what you pay for.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Looked for a hotel that accepted dogs and was near family that we were visiting. So decided to take a chance on a Hotel 6. Room was clean, but very very basic. I didn't take a hair dryer, expecting to use theirs. No hair dryer. Didn't bring shampoo, expecting to use hotel's. No shampoo. Brought some dog food that needed refrigeration. No mini fridge. No Kleenex, believe it or not. Shady characters hanging around outside. When we arrived, some character was in the lot. He shambled over, and warned us that "they" would steal our dog. Came back one night to find a shabby looking person sleeping in the parking lot....right in the handicapped spaces. My wife made sure that all three door locks were secure every night. We had a front room, and quite noisy. Fortunately we always travel with earplugs, so sleep was OK. The beds are actually quite comfy. We were out with family by 9AM every day, and generally back by 8PM, can't give you any idea of what it's like during the day. This hotel is definitely inexpensive, and if you can put up with some inconveniences, it would be OK. We however, won't be coming back.

Like every Motel 6, this place was a no-frills low cost motel. I was in town for an interview and this place was close and cheap. This location is really close to Sacramento State University so if you're coming in town for that, it might be a good place to stay. There's also a gas station across the street as well as a McDonalds. Wifi is $2.99 extra per 24 hour period. There's also free parking and a swimming pool.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2009

This Motel 6 is about 3/4 of a mile from Sacramento State. I stayed a Monday night in room 406 (upstairs; non-smoking); it had one queen bed and a 17"(?) TV. There were no extras. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious and clean. There was a pool, which was very clean, with the snack, soda & ice machines located right next to it. The landscaping was very nice & the property was very well kept. The front desk clerk was very friendly. I paid $41.56 ($36.99 + taxes after booking online the day before). There is a Denny's Restaurant (open 24 hours) located right next door. Overall, I was very satisfied with my stay here and would stay here again.

Although many people consider Motel 6 as a chain of cheap off-road motels for poor truck drivers, this one was actually very clean and nice. Rooms were spacious, smelled nice and staff was very helpful, not to mention it was also very central. Not bad at all!

On the outside this hotel is very attractive and well kept. It even takes a while for the problems of this place to sink in as there is nothing hugely wrong or horribly disgusting, just a lot of things that eventually get to you. #1--no toilet seats. Imagine the type of toilets you see in a mall or a department store bathroom, that is what they have here. #2--the bathroom door does not lock. There isn't even a lock that doesn't work. There just isn't a lock. Also the bathroom door does not close all the way. #3--certain set ups in the room make it very easy to hit your head. Not pleasant. #4--the front desk was polite but ultimately incompetent. #5--the way you get WiFi here is just stupid. They should give you one # you use the whole time you're there but no you have to go to the (incompetent) front desk everyday and buy a new internet card. It would be better if the front desk knew what they were doing. One day, the lady did not even understand what I wanted even though there is a huge banner outside the lobby that says "WiFi here." However, we were not here for a beautiful stunning hotel stay. We wanted a good price which we got and we wanted a location close to Sac State which we got. Other than that, a rather questionable place.

Okay, the thing about this hotel, which is located near Cal State University Sacramento, is that you have to be careful about the rooms that you get. I opted for a single, which was very small. $50.00 is a good room but it's just too small, I think. The television was on a shelf but it wasn't facing the bed. I have stayed here with friends before, and the double rooms are much bigger and much better. That's what I would advise. Spring for a double even as a single and you'll have much more room and be much happier. You know what's nice about this hotel? If you're staying there you can be in South Lake Tahoe in an hour and a half and San Francisco in an hour and a half - it's a good place to camp out and save some money while seeing a lot of Northern California. And check out the bike/running/walking path along the nearby river - truly cool. Mountain Mike's pizza down the street is pretty good, too!
