This is one of the larger Motel 6 locations that I've visited. The buildings seemed to go on for quite a distance. I-5 was just to the west. The price I paid was not bad compared to other motel chains in Southern California. I noticed the guests seemed a bit more prosperous than those you usually encounter at a Motel... More

It seemed a bit overpriced for a motel 6, room was okay I didn't get one of the modern rooms but everything worked fine. Front desk seemed a bit annoyed and rude (it was busy) they didn't even give me directions to my room.I waited a bit longer for the room to be ready, but Overall not that bad for... More

I am in the hospitality industry and I was pleasantly surprised at the level of service I received. I was able to check in considerably early and experienced a small issue in my room. I called the front desk and spoke to Jason, who originally checked me in. Jason was apologetic and was prompt in assuring me that he would... More

This is a typical Motel 6. Our room was clean and fairly comfortable,nothing outstanding. However two doors from our room someone had driven a car through the wall and caused extensive damage. All I can say about this place is that it's inexpensive and close to Legoland.

The rooms are clean, painted, have laminate flooring. The bed is firm, could be too firm for those who are picky. There are daily charges for Wi-Fi, yet there's 4G, so it's not needed. You don't hear the traffic from inside the room. We didn't hear any noise during the night. This is a pet friendly motel, but never heard... More

I had not stayed a t Motel 6 in a while, so I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It was very clean and it was great for just a nights rest. Quick check in and room was the modern contemporary feel. Walking distance to restaurants. We walked to TGIFridays. I would and will stay here again!

If internet is important to you this is not the place you want to be. Not only were we shocked to find a 5.00 per day charge for internet we also were ticked that this was for each device. I have 4 devices and my husband has 3. We resorted to using our hot spot and thought it appropriate to... More

I planned on staying for two nights but after what i saw i will no longer be staying at a motel 6. The first night it... More

Newly renovated hardwood floors and updated vanity were a definite plus. The dingy, coarse sheets, musty smell and scratchy towels are a minus. I have limited expectations for a bargain freeway-side motel, and this one fell right at expectations. The vending area could use updating, and the area for dog walking could use complementary bags and a trash can (because... More
