This motel is perfect for guests that are seeing the sights, and just need a clean, decent place to spend the night. The rooms are small, but that is a trademark of the Motel 6 chain. I only had two complaints, at night, shady characters hung around the front of the motel. I had my 19 year old daughter with... More

Within being there for 3 hours there was 2 arrest. One guy was sitting on his truck for a long period. Cops finally came and put him in cuffs and searched his vehicle. He either had warrants or something illegal going on. He was taking to jail. About an hour later. A guy kept walking the motel courtyard near the... More

I've never stayed at a Motel 6 before and after booking a room at the San Marcos Motel 6, I never will again. My experience started out with walking into the "lobby" (vending area) and there were several vagrants sitting at a table asleep. The hotel clerk was nice enough, but once I got to my room I was appalled.... More

Needed an inexpensive place to sleep during $X$W in Austin a few miles north. Small room but it did the job. Beds were OK, nothing spectacular. Small 1/2 round table with 2 chairs below TV, which had all sorts of electronic plug-in things that I didn't need or use, but I'm guessing the younger crowd would be happy with those.... More

I have stayed at a couple of Motel 6's around the country and this one was by far the worst! It had the STRONGEST bleach smell that I have ever smelled and it NEVER went away. It has NO refrigerator and BOTH of the ice machines had NO ice. They had ONE large towel for two adults.

I booked a double non-smoking room for myself and family. When we checked in the lobby smelled like sweat and cigarettes. We were given our room key, we went into the room it smelled musty and like cigarettes. The comforters were dirty or very stained if washed at all. We pulled the blankets back and the sheets were covered in... More

We stayed two nights and there are no daily maid service due to a "cost reduction" policy as the receptionist said. It's a Pet friendly Hotel with too many cats around with no maid service ? Bad Idea! The rest of our stay was almost on my minimums!
