This is one of the best Motel 6 hotels I have stayed at. The room was small but clean and adequate. The location was convenient. The staff was friendly. It is so nice that Motel 6 allows dogs for no additional fee. I would definitely recommend this Motel for people traveling with their pets.

Stayed here after driving all day, needed a cheap place to stay the night. Motel has not been renovated, it is old, furniture/decor is old, but it was relatively clean and you get what you pay for. There is no cell reception and you have to pay for wifi.... so I wish they had told me this before i paid...

The motel is pretty good really no frills but you get a double bed, microwave & fridge to cook with a small table and chair, basic cable TV, wifi costs an extra $4.99 per day not quite fast enough to stream TV but uploading photos or downloading apps is fine, bathroom with a shower over the bath and plenty of...

We had a very pleasant stay during a recent impromptu trip to the mountains from the bay area. Beds were comfortable, cleanliness was up to our high standards, check-in/check-out smooth, free parking. A kind request to management is to please consider including basic breakfast for convenience of their guests. Thank you Motel 6!!

Stayed here for a day while visiting Lake Tahoe on July 4 weekend. Very overpriced (since it was a holiday weekend). It has all the basic amenities, but it's just that.The bedroom looked really run down. there was a weird smell in the room. The room really small. Bathroom is also small. I wouldn't prefer to stay here ever.

The room was ok. Definitely no frills, but acceptable. Clean - except the shower curtain showed signs of mildew. The room was crowded with an unnecessary extra table and chair. The heater worked well. It's conveniently located. But if you're staying on a weekend or other time when they're charging peak rates (I paid $137 including taxes/fees), you'd probably be...

Arrived tired after driving up in the morning and skiing in the afternoon, then fighting horrible traffic down from Sierra at Tahoe. Needed to just crash. I didn't rememberr exactly what rate I had booked at. The price I was quoted seemed higher than I remembered, but whatever. First we were checked into a room where someone had turned off...

A good budget option for staying in a premiere tourist destination. With Motel 6, we know we will get a clean room and friendly staff. Also, the room comes with a microwave and mini-refrigerator, which is very helpful when coming back with leftovers from restaurants. One caveat: no free wifi. Not only does one have to pay for wifi, each...

The room was a bit small, but it was clean and the beds were comfortable, which is all we really needed. We stayed here in order to ski at Sierra-at-Tahoe which is about a half hour drive away. Overall we had a pleasant stay.

Stayed here for after a concert. Didn't really use the room for much other than sleeping and leaving. It was clean and the beds looked fine. It was very small and had little moving space, but it was okay since we were pretty much in and out. The front desk service was really polite. It was pretty much exactly what...
