My girlfriend and I stayed here for four days. As a rule I use refrigerator, but thought it would be nice to stay at a place that we actually had all to ourselves. We thought it would be worth the extra money. It wasn't. When I made my reservations about six weeks ago, I told the woman I spoke with... More

The rates are reasonable. There is... More

My boyfriend & I were taking his sister to a concert close to the hotel. When we got there they tried to charge me for a third person when shes only 13 & anyone under 17 stays free. The room was clean, but the shower poured out sand. So did the sinks. I asked for more pillows so we all... More

Stayed April 2015 alone while visiting UCR. Location was very close to a shopping center with nice places to eat, however, I didn't feel safe leaving my room after dark. While grabbing dinner, I was locked out of my room as my key card stopped working. Front desk was helpful. The shower was still covered in someone elses hair and... More

There's lots of things to see around motel. Rooms are rather small and had a weird smell. Restroom was real small, toilet seat is right next to bathtub. The room seemed a little dirty. I guess you get what you pay for. Won't be returning, would not recommend if you're used to clean rooms and no funny smells.

We recently stayed on a last minute stopover to have dinner with friends in Riverside before launching a roadtrip to wine country. Having stayed a numerous Motel 6's on a recent 6 week journey, and since this particular location seemingly was a good location near the Universary of California Riverside, we thought it would be fine.

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, but the bathroom could be more clean. No problems using the internet. No other services provided but overall it was good enough. No very good for people who are disturbed by noises from the street. There's a gas station in front of it so it gets noisy during the night.
