Parking and walking to our room there was some shady...

We just wanted a place to sleep. Here you get what you pay for. The toiletries are just enough, nothing fancy, toilet paper and a couple of soap bars, NO SHAMPOO, NO CONDITIONER, NO LOTION. Water system is designed to save water, so it feels kind of slow to wash hands, but no biggie. Sheets felt clean. Towels are a...

Stayed here for a few nights while in SoCal & it was a good value for a weekend stay. The room & property was clean, the desk clerks & housekeeping staff was friendly & helpful. My only complaints, no mini fridge in the room, & the water pressure was terrible.

Filthy property, dirty room, bad customer service, no housekeeping, horrible night. Not to mention all the drug users that I saw on the property while walking back and forth from the front office to get some assistance. First of all, our room was freezing. I put the thermostat all the way up but even after 30 min, the air was...

Saturday night hotel rooms in the summer are expensive everywhere here and Motel6 is no exception! We found better prices online for this location than what the desk clerk was quoting. Clerk would not honor online price and told us to get the better price we had to book online. So we walked out, booked online, walked back in. The...
