I made a reservation in March and asked for a quiet room. On day of arrival we were given a rather noisy room. When I questioned the person on the desk I was told they delegate rooms "on the day of". As there was a large group registered that day they got all the back rooms. So booking in advance... More

We chose to stay at motel 6 because we travel with two big dogs, and motel 6 are very dog friendly (other places that allow pets usually have size/breed restrictions and charge and extra fee). Motel 6 was okay - very convenient location, friendly staff, nice little pool, and parking right next to our room. The big problem was that... More

There weren't many hotels left on our last minute trip to Tahoe. We chose the motel 6 without having the highest of expectations. It was surprising to see the newer updates and modern decor at this motel 6. We enjoyed our stay and would return even with unlimited options in the future.

We checked in last night. The pool was nice. There is a bike trail directly behind the hotel which was a good place to walk our dog. They also gave us dog treats. Unfortunately we left items in the back of our truck and they were stolen. We only stayed one night. There is a new goodwill near the hotel... More

Efficient check-in, had to change rooms 3 times due to hair on sheets, dirty floors, etc. ended up vacuuming my own room! Manager gave me a free night. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful, pool was heated, laundry and vending area were clean. Microwave/fridge in the room was handy. Wifi codes were a bit difficult. Location was good and...

Not the best Motel 6, not the worst, either. They clean well after check-outs -- lift the beds, vacuum underneath. I was in one of the newly renovated (accessible) rooms. All was fine. I detest the policies of other "pet-friendly" hotels where they require a "deposit" of $100 or more that they don't tell you is non-refundable, even if pet... More

We were expecting a renovated room based on the pictures on the Motel 6 website and we got one of the older rooms. The room was also very small and not clean. The blankets were especially dirty and covered with hair - we had to go ask for new ones at the front desk. Wi-Fi was available but it was... More

We stayed 1 night over Memorial Day weekend. The room cost $120. The bathtub had missing caulk and a small water leak where the tub contacted the floor. The exhaust fan was very noisy and the shower water was the cool side of lukewarm. The entry door had a 1 inch gap where the door met the floor. The bed... More
