With some work being done on my home, I had to vacate for three days. This particular Motel 6 was the closest, least expensive hotel near me. The room and grounds were neat and clean, and there were a lot of channels on the TV (there's also a smallish swimming pool), and I was just looking for a place to... More

Since I normally check reviews before coming to any hotel, my reviews that are negative are minimal. In this case I must give a lower rating to this hotel, even though it is a Motel 6, and I had lower standards and expectations for this night. This hotel was below any standards that I would set for even a Motel... More

Motel 6 has a known reputation for being kind of cheap & dirty . Well I'm here to clear that up after booking with them to stay here on my prom night I was very impressed. All the descent even fancier hotels in my surrounding area were all booked due to the Strawberry festival. So this was my last choice... More

The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. My issue is with the condition of the room. I even paid extra to upgrade to a larger corner room. The phone did not work, there were holes in the curtains, dead flies on the window sill, the TV kept loosing signal, cracks in the bathtub, and weird unsightly brown spots... More

I will NEVER stay in this hotel again. The way we were treated was inexcusable. They kicked us out for our dogs behaving in the van not bugging anyone!! The dogs never came in the room, never made a mess and we actually cleaned up after other inconsiderate people who did not clean up after there dogs. But because we... More

We were excited because this was the first place that had an ice machine and buckets... perfect for our carton of milk that had been with us since Pismo Beach! This was perfectly adequate. Clean, secure, predictable quality and reasonable service. We requested a no smoking room however when the room had clearly been used by a smoker who had... More

This is really a bare bones 3 star motel. Do not expect any more than this and it is an OK place to spend the night. I had read the reviews on this and some other sights about this Motel 6 and was concerned about the homeless people in the parking lot, the towels so stiff you could use for... More

Though I didn't have an issue checking in, it seemed several others did. The Front desk staff were quite unprofessional and lackadaisical. However, the security guard was totally strange. My son was driving a very unique restomod Cadillac and we expect questions about it. But this dude started asking personal questions NOT related to the car or security. It totally... More

No comp water like other small hotel/motels, my room was overlooking on a huge dumpster that have an overflowing trash, room smells a.little bit muggy. Front desk wasn't that accomodating when ask if... More

we drove around the neighboring towns for a while looking for reasonable hotels. Could not find any under $140. After stopping at each hotel we found this place online and just drove to Ventura and stopped in. There was a large line of cars trying to check in so we thought it would be okay. Pictures of the rooms were... More
