The bed and pillows was very comfortable. I watched tv in the room and the tv worked well and recieved many many channels. Who cares that motel 6 doesnt provide shampoo.... More

Even though despite this visit was before the Memorial Day weekend (which the prices are to be expectedly high), the price is still not affordable for a Motel 6. The room is decent and small, though, but the water tasted really badly. The sleep quality was decent as well. The owner originally said that the motel was booked up. Yet,... More

Last year and the years before I only had to pay around $600-650usd for a room with 2 adults. I paid nearly $900 this year for the same amount of guests and length of stay. Literally the only pros this year were that the room was actually clean when we checked in and the location, since it's near the lightrail... More

The motel is located between North First Street and Highway 101, on Brokaw Road. The VTA light rail trains run down the middle of N. First Street. The rooms have been nicely remodeled. Comfortable bed, good-sized flat-screen TV, desk area. Electrical outlets raised on the walls near the bed and the desk. Bathroom area good for one or two travelers... More

Well, I'm not sure what to say so I'll stick to the facts, it's clean, check in was straight forward and the staff pleasant. Water was warm and shower good. Air con works. The not so good bits; noisy, tiny, towels were no bigger than hand towels for a shower, was a bit scary, some shady characters hanging about (although... More

Please if you are going to charge $125 for a room at least offer Wi-Fi and Shampoo. Room was clean but stingy on everything else. Sheets on bed very used and far from soft. Noisy location. Lots of loitering when we checked in. Didn't feel safe. Front desk friendly and accommodating.

I was surprised the hotel is walking distance from the airport and next door is a dennys restaurant and a short walk to the train station. Absolutely perfect location with cleansers rooms. The front desk has great customer service with arranging a cab and wake up call. The hotel was not what I expected from a budget hotel. Thank you

Motel 6 is probably one of those places you don't want to end up sleeping, but an urgent late notice trip, a convention in the area that made hotel prices rise and you are ready to accept a motel 6 stay as a better alternative to sleeping under the bridge... My stay started off on a bad note, upon arrival... More

Good lord! It is the only time I have been truly scared to stay at a motel/hotel in my life. The parking lot was full of lowlifes/drug-dealers/drug users/homeless and flat out scary people, some just sitting in cars watching you as you enter/exit your room. The room itself had stains in the bathroom, stains on the bedspread, a sticky substance... More
