Stayed 3 nights. Deluxe upgrade includes several amenities; I used the shampoo, coffeemaker and Basic WiFi. Free coffee in the office every morning after 6:30, but I was awake earlier and enjoyed brewing my own. WiFi was okay 2 out of 3 nights; 3rd night was poor. Saw no drugs or suspicious activity. Well maintained. The staff is very friendly,... More

Unfortunately, The Motel 6 Downtown Carlsbad Is Downright Dangerous On 2 consecutive nights last month, I was greeted by and awoken by individuals searching the Motel 6 Downtown Carlsbad for $3 Oxycontin pills. When I informed the Motel 6 Downtown Carlsbad of the incidents, they dismissed my concerns in an unbelievably callous manner. Two weeks after the Adventures In Oxycontin,... More

Visited Carlsbad with daughter; stayed at this Motel 6 for 3 nites. Best thing about it was the location. Beach, restaurants, shopping all within walking distance. Room was clean. Been nice to have tissues and perhaps a small frig. Bare bones amenities, so bring your iron, cooler for water, etc., shampoo, Kleenex (tissues) and other such items. Staff was pleasant... More

Great location, walking distance to shops and beach. Clean updated rooms, although we would have liked a few more amenities. Good rates for the location. Beds are a little bit stiff, towels thin, no fridge. Close proximity to the I-5 freeway.

Just blocks from the beach, the motel has been updated to the new standards! Food, drink and shopping all within walking distance. Only complaint is, the WiFi wasn't free. Tom Bodett left the lights on for me.

Hotel looks like it's been recently renovated. Very modern looking. The staff is very friendly. The location is perfect. A few blocks from the beach. A block from the main freeway. Plenty of restaurants, dive bars, night life entertainment. Shopping Mall.. you name it. . It's very close by. Legoland is only a few minutes drive south. Del Mar race... More

We have been coming here for years now. We absolutely love the location. There's a Denny's right next door. And an awesome Japanese restaurant across the street. Tons of shopping and restaurants and a fun little night life in the village. About a 5 - 10 minute walk to the beach. The staff is very ,very friendly and even checked... More

I needed a place to stay while taking care of some family business. I couldn't spend a fortune. I thought my room was cute and it was very clean. No fancy amenities but anything I needed was nearby. Free wifi would have been nice but that drives the price up. Girl in office was courteous and helpful. I recommend for... More

I have actually stayed here MANY times over MANY years. It has recently been remodeled. It is a mostly typical M6 and missing certain amenities found at other motels in the area. That's life. It is also comparatively inexpensive. The reasons I like this place have EVERYTHING to do with the area and not the M6 itself. The weather here... More
