They have the most friendliest staff I have had at a motel 6. They are dog friendly with lots of grass and and dog bags. Only 2 minutes from ocean and great restaurants. Free coffee in office in morning.

We came for a Saturday, a bit last minute and decided to book through hotels.com despite the price of 300+$. Big mistake and I wish we had paid more for any of the nearby more upscale hotels (ex Hilton). The towel racks were filthy, there was a cockroach we killed and the toilet malfunctioned (made noise all night). Also we forgot Motel 6 does not have shampoo - for 300$ would you not expect one? I will never stay at this place again. Filthy towel tube pics attached.

The customer service here was better than the four star Hilton up the road. MATTHEW, JONOTHAN, and MICHAEL did a great job letting people know they were welcomed at this location. In one of many examples, I requested that my room be moved; it was done cheerfully. Southern California Edison was planning to shut the power off for that area of the city for 8 hours; the successful efforts of the hotel to notify the incoming guests was thoughtful and appreciated. As Tom Bodett used to say in the ads when Motel Six first started, "You will get a clean, quiet comfortable room." There were no frills, but that promise was delivered. parking availability was excellent. The pool was ice cold and unheated; after looking forward to using it during the nice weather, this was disappointing.
