Just like you expect from motel 6 and to be fair you get what you pay for. Basic motel nothing fancy but clean. Coffee in the lobby in the morning. Right on highway so good accessibility. Overall okay. Neutral on recommendations ...if you want a cheap stay it's not bad. If you are looking for something fancy look someplace else.

Well, to start with the positive things: The beds are clean and comfortable and there is no carpet. However, for a motel that has a big "WIFI HERE" sign out in front, one would expect free wifi. Nowadays no hotel should be allowed to charge you extra for internet connection. But it seem Motel 6 likes to make some extra... More

Just a short one night stay here for a quick coast getaway. Its a basic hotel. It can get a bit noisy outside with people walking or running outside the rooms. For the price, it was worth it. My only complaint is that you have to pay daily for wifi per device. I had to buy two 24 hour wifi... More

Coming back up north from LA to King City and stopped her for the night at 1 am and the price of 99.00 was way to expensive for the hard as a rock bed, flat pillows, to just get up at 7 am and head home.

My husband and sister and brother-in-law stayed here for 1 night to see a concert at the Madonna Inn that was a few miles away. I did my hotel research online and their rates were reasonable and reviews were good, so I booked 1 room with 2 beds. The check in was pleasant, as was the gentleman checking us in... More
