My grown son and I stayed here two nights while hiking Whitewater Preserve area. My room needed to be re-keyed four times and almost never worked. Have you ever carried luggage to upstairs room and been frustrated to learn key doesn't work and need to go all the way back downstairs to get new key? Well this happened to us... More

Can't believe this place was only 2 star and also not even full for coachella. It's next to comfort suites where the 1st coach stop is, probably the nearest stop to the festival so really easy Also v near to a huge store where u can buy everything and has a small pool to chill in the mornings before the...

I stayed here before though this time, was not given a groundfloor, handicapped room ( and I'm not that handicapped! A lovely, quiet single, with queen bed, non-smoking, non-carpeted flooring. Tasteful contemporary, Ikea-style furnishings. Bed was comfortable; heat & fan amazingly quiet.Toward the back is away from I-10 so a good choice.. AARP discount for senior AARP includes free WIFI...

Located on a very busy,noisy road. Next door is a 24 hour drive-in taco place,could hear the drive-thru window frequently. Had a fight/disturbance right outside our room late one night & the police had to called. Blood stains seen on the outside pavement the next morning. Brought this to the staff's attention & assured it would be taken care of... More

We had stayed here before on our way to Arizona. When we checked in our room we noticed that it was updated with a flat screen TV, beds and room decor. After our previous stay we had written a review about how outdated the room was. Thank you Motel 6 for reading reviews from customers. We will definitely stay again.

Stayed in 109 on Sun & Mon because it was close to my cousin in Palm Desert. Only problem, the door wouldn't open. You had to put the key card in, turn the handle then give it a kick. The room was fine- good beds & pillows, air & TV worked, soap & towels. Went swimming in the pool &... More

Not bad at all, probably one of the best motel 6 experiences I have had. The rooms have been updated and everything was clean. Check-in was easy, we did have some issues with our room key the second night, but the front desk staff were very helpful and fixed the issue. Wi-Fi is provided for a fee, but it is... More

We needed a place to sleep the night before and after a special golf outing. We were on a budget, so, Motel 6 was the answer. Not a bad hotel; hardwood floors, AC, TV (no AMC for the Walking Dead Finale, ouch), shower was ok. No ironing board, blow dryer, or special perks. But for 70$ a night, oh well.... More

This was probably the quiest night sleep I have ever had in a motel. It had the new Motel 6 upgraded rooms which are very space efficient. It was very clean.
