“Not the best Motel 6”
Reviewed June 21, 2007

We did not enjoy our stay here at all. We selected a Non-Smoking room, but the smoke from the other rooms came through the bathroom vents. Some of the lower level rooms had card board covering the windows and some had damaged window screens. The overall outside condition of the property was not very appealing. I have stayed at many other Motel 6’s and have been very satisfied. If we pass through this area again we will stay some place else.

We are middle age and recently visited this motel. We were pleased with the value for our money. It was a little noisy but I have paid much more money for even more noise. I'd rather pay less and go out to dinner. By the way they have a nice chinese buffet across the street. The staff I met were very nice. I hear there is a new manager. I would stay here again.

  • Liked — I liked paying reasonable rates to be close to the ocean
  • Disliked — there was some noise but I've paid more for same noise

I visited this hotel for close to a week. I've never seen a hotel run so poorly. Their manager was quite rude to guests and seemed overworked. This translated to employees being unhappy as well. The rooms were decent, and comparable to any motel 6. The staff, well, if you check in a room for one night and don't have to talk to the staff except to check in, it will do. There are lots of hotels in the area that offer much better accomodations.

  • Liked — nothing
  • Disliked — rude staff
  • Tips/Secrets — if you're planning on more than one night in a hotel, find somewhere that offers friendly staff

We've stayed at 2 other motel 6 and this is the best one. Motel 6 offers a clean room and shower, no frills. This motel 6 did it well. Location is great. The other motel 6, down in Eureka, was not as nice as this one. If you know what to expect from a Motel 6, this one won't disappoint you. If you're expecting a Hyatt, forget it.
