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! Nice for a change! Less dust and who knows what else? Right? Decent bed, mattress only, no box spring. 1/2 table with 2... More

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.

Clean room. Quiet. I don't get why hotels think they can make do with just two washers and dryers, but I was able to get all that done, and even though the front desk guy says they charge for WiFi, they gave it to me free. Which is what everyone should do. Motel 6 always has the lowest rates, but... More
