While clean and the top floor is quiet, this place does not provide shampoo, breakfast, in-room coffee, or Internet. You can buy Internet for a daily fee. The elevator is scarred but works. There are several good restaurants within walking distance (but who walks?). On the other hand, relative to local competition, the price is reasonable.

I'm fine with cheap hotel, I figured it would be a smelly, old, dirty hotel(a place to sleep) however I was pleasantly surprised! It was Quiet after about 11pm, comfy bed, clean updated rooms! Will stay again. Next to movie theater and lots of restraints, close to Target.

I don't know how many Motel 6's the other reviewers have been to in their lifetime but I have been to many up and down the state of California, Nevada, Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma and Motel 6's are ALWAYS consistent! There is NEVER a continental breakfast offered so I'm confused as to why anyone would complain about the lack of... More

I stayed here in July 2016 two nights at $120/night (Thursday & Friday nights). For a Motel 6??? It's 15 miles from here to Santa Cruz Boardwalk and 27 miles to Monterey. Unfortunately, everything else in area is even more expensive this time of year. A/C did not work in my room (at least weather was not very hot). They... More

I don't like to write negative reviews, but there are too many issues to ignore at this place. The area seemed fine at first, but there are security warnings all over the place, reminders to keep all locks on the doors at all times. The room just wasn't clean. Huge stain on bedspread as soon as I walked in. Killed... More

I will never stay in this Motel 6 again. The room was hot, AC was turned off when we walked in and it took quite a while to get it cooled down. Room was extremely small...Unlike other Motel 6's we stayed in. Towels were small and cheap, no toiletries, no continental breakfast like other hotels and the price wasn't that... More

This hotel is good for those on a budget. The rooms are clean but super fancy. There is no smoking in rooms but people can smoke right outside their room which then gets sucked in with the fan for each room. Towels are super tiny but clean. It is close to food, movies and the freeway. Not super quiet but... More

No problem checking in. Alexandra doing a good job! 3rd floor chosen to keep people from stomping on our head. Elevator is a good thing! Stairs not bad tho! Need the exercise! No carpet in the room!

People staying here must think "no smoking" only applies to cigarettes. Smoke rolls out of the rooms like a scene from an old Cheech and Chong movie. Property is not that old but has not been well maintained. Worst part is the staff - they are clearly very unhappy.
