Exhausted on road trip and had to stop. Motel 6 was clean, newly remodeled, quiet. No frills hotel. No carpet, but floor was clean. No hairdryer in room, no coffee in room, but coffee available in lobby in morning. No shady things seen. Clientele seemed to be families and weary travelers. Would stay here again.

I stayed in a number of Motel-6s recently while on a 3000-mile road-trip and this was one of them. I'm a little puzzled by the reviewer who suggested "shady things were going on" (?); when I finally found the motel (for some reason I had headed off to Coalinga -- don't do that!) it seemed normal. My only complaint here...

Located in the community of Coalinga, on the west side of the junction of I-5 and CA-198, the no-frills Motel 6 offers small, clean, quiet and inexpensive sleeping accommodations. The recently remodeled motor inn is strategically located as a rest point for southbound and northbound motorists. The bargain motel, with supporting restaurants, fast food outlets and gas stations is 65-miles...

I experienced no problem with my stay at this motel 6. The location was a little hard to find after pulling off the freeway. I can see why people could feel unsafe with a few abandoned restaurants next to this hotel. I had no issues. The front desk staff were over the top accommodating even suggesting that I park my...

Needed a place to stay overnight while in the middle of a road trip, and figured stick with a recognizable name like Motel 6, it can't be that bad, right? I'm surprised the manager didn't just refuse to give us a room right off the bat when he realized we were actual travellers. Instead he just smirked and gave us...

I arrived on a Saturday evening and was impressed by the friendly front desk staff and cleanliness of the room. I spent an hour or two checking my email, etc. (good Wifi) and then realized that the 10 or so people gathered around a picnic table, drinking and talking and playing music right outside my window, did not appear to...

Do not stay here. The room was clean but I would be afraid to stay if my husband was not with us. I had a friend with me and we put her in a connecting room because the hotel was so shady. We had flew into los angeles and had been up 24 hours or we would have driven farther...

We stopped here to rest on our 12 hour drive to Mexico. The room looked like it had been recently remodeled and was very functional and clean. A step above the average Motel 6. Would definitely choose this place again for the price!

This is one of those motels where everything that might be stolen is gone or bolted down. That said, it's clean (looks newly remodeled) and reasonably priced. We did not hear the traffic on the I-5 or smell the cows across the road when we were in our room, but we did hear and smell 'em outside. All said, a...

The manager of this establishment, Mr. Howard Rackly is so cheap, he turns off the heaters in the winter. Your room will have not heat, only a fan and air conditioning. This, on a January morning when it 39 degrees outside! Stay anyplace but here. This place is too cold to sleep at night!
