One of the best motel 6 stays I've had. The hotel has been recently updated and the rooms were nice. I stated two nights and had no problems. Clean rooms with working air conditioning. Flat TV with good reception. Only downside was having to pay for wifi. Location is good, right off highway, near a walmart, fuel, and beach. I... More

Cheap, noisy smelly rooms. The smell of cat and dog urine. Tv gets limited channels. One bar of cheap soap. Walls super thin, toliet ran most of the night. You can hear when others take shower starting at 5 a.m. Get coffee early or you miss out. NO BIG DEAL ANYWAY. Fecal matter pretty much all over and urine. Some... More

I know Motel 6 is a "discount" Motel chain but I was still expecting more. The room was so small 2 people could not walk past each other in the room. Absolutely no ammenities. No blow dryer, no iron, no dresser, no closet, nothing. Didn't have anywhere to put things. It was very inconvenient as we stayed 6 days. We... More

Stayed here three nights in August 2013 as part of a tour of the Coast. Reception area was clean. Rooms very clean and quiet away from the road. I would have given this Motel 6 five stars if it was not for the fact that every piece of grass was covered with literally HUNDREDS of dog messes. I had a... More

Good choice for visiting Monterey and Carmel. It's an ok place if you plan to spend one or two nights while visiting California Coast. Close to Monterey and Carmel. and way cheaper than hotels on those cities. Rooms acoustic isolation are not very good. If you happen to get a noisy neighbor it's gonna be disturbing.

Was the cheapest hotel in the area within closest proximity to the beach. Well maintained grounds, decently nice staff, and clean rooms make it well worth the price. Only complaint would be no tissues in the room, also there are not fridges and microwaves in every room (just some). People who complain have forgotten how much they paid-- you get... More

Who'd know that the weekend that I wanted to go to Monterey would be the yearly car show in Monterey. So...naturally, every hotel/motel has jacked up the rates for this particular weekend. Remember this folks, August 14,15 thru Sunday the 18th this weekend every year. So I guess when I'm paying $120 a night at a motel 6, I going... More

Having stayed at a number of hotels/motels during our 3 week trip of the West Coast this was the most disappointing. It was what it was, a box with a bed!!! although it was on route, for the price we paid it was over priced compared to many of the other places we had stayed such as RedRoof and Travelodge.... More
