The carpets needed vacuumed and shampooed. There were multiple stains. The maid did not leave enough towels or replenish the toilet paper. There were very few tv channels. It was in a good neighborhood. It had comfortable mattresses. It was quiet during our stay.

We stayed here 3 nights whilst visiting Yosemite Park. The motel is clean and recently refurbished. The bed was comfortable and clean. Room service came every day. The pool looked clean, there were families in it when we got back each night. Lots of parking. In a great location for food and shops. Reception staff were very helpful, polite and...

Seedy drug dealer types. Filthy room reeking of smoke. After all day drive and reservation had to find lodging at 11:30 pm. Me and Motel 6 are about done. There is nothing more to say. Terrible location. Cannot imagine anyone ranking this ever over 1 star.

From the outside, it seemed like it should be better. Staff was nice enough, quickly processed our check-in. The room, states non smoking, cigarette butts all around the outside and the smell inside would indicate otherwise. Stained carpeting and sheets. Don't think the sheets were changed either. Broken ice machine. Shaky non motel guests roaming the parking lot. The bright...

First impression excellent as I was met by 'Erica'...a delightful young woman who took pride in her property and communicated well. Although room furniture was a bit banged up...the room was clean and the bed quite comfortable. Other staff, including maintenance man, also friendly and helpful. This Motel 6 is in a good part of town - I would feel...

I made a reservation online guaranteed with a credit card. When I got there @ 10 PM after driving for 3 hours- they told me they had no rooms. Miraculously - they found a room. I asked for the bottom floor and they said there were none. Then they tried to charge me $30.00 more than the price on the...

Don't stay here - sheets not changed & I could tell by stains on them. Carpet & bathroom disgustingly dirty. Curtains & refrigerator shelves broken. Spend a little money & go somewhere that's clean!!!!! Bad sketchy neighborhood & folks hanging around outside.
