Motel 6 Carlsbad East
Ranked #34 of 36 Hotels in Carlsbad
Reviewed July 28, 2012

It is a really cheap motel, good only for 1 night. There was no hair dryer in the room so we asked it at the reception but we were told that they dont have any. So my wife had to dry the hair with the heating.

I needed a place to stay because my preferred location (Carlsbad Inn and Resort) was booked. I thought the price was great (about 50 bucks a night) for being so close to the beach and the Carlsbad Village area. My room in the back had a great view of a weeded lot with foundations of buildings remaining from demolitions that took place years ago. My room key/card had to be reactivated each day because I was not able to get in each day. The WiFi was terrible and had to be paid for each day and activated with a new PW each day...a pain. The rooms were appointed more like long-stay, $125 a week locations. The bathrooms were clean as far as I could see and the rooms were just ok for cleanliness. They really need an up-date, and up-grade for sure. They are in a prime vacation location and could do better even if it means $10 more on the price. I was disappointed even though they 'leave the light on' for us.

Room Tip: Not sure there's any better spot but the back certainly has a getto view.

I found two bed bugs in the middle of the night that I turned the light on and there they were on the bed sheet. Called the front desk and all the lady could do for me at 3am was move me to another room and wait for the manager that got there at 11am. Well I told him my problem and I showed him the two bed bugs I found in my bed and I also showed him my bit marks on my arms and he was totally rude about it. He said well if you don't like it go to another one! He didn't care about the situation. I will file a complaint to corporate.

This room was clean enough but I will not stay there again. I was right next to the freeway and it was extremely noisy. I could have lived with that but what is appalling is that there were bed bugs. I didn't know what I was getting bitten by at first as I've never had an experience with these nasty creatures. I came home from my stay with bites all over my arms and legs. And YES, they are bed bug bites. I wrote to the company and have not received a response at all. Apparently they are not concerned that their rooms are infested. Disgusting!!!! For a few dollars more I would definitely upgrade to a better hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room on the east side and away from the freeway.

Well, the ENTIRE hotel is out of bathroom tissue and towels. Manager refused to pull supplies from nearby properties and simply said nothing can be done. Refund asked for and refused by manager. Cleaning crew is great, yet they cannot offer supplies that are not even stocked by the manager. Someone needs to change his career. Why does his boss not tell him to take care of his customers???!!!

Room Tip: AVOID unless you love to BED BUGS crawl on your face while you sleep.

Room had bed bugs. Told manager, Roger, and he said it was not his problem and suggested we stay somewhere else. What a great guy.
