“PERFECT STAY !”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

we stayed here last december with my husband and we have a great stay. room is nice and clean as the frontdesk staff JOE was very nice to us also he even help us carry our luggages in the room though i we know his alone during the night. We didnt worry about leaving our important things inside the room because i had a good impression to this motel. Security is always on the ground to check safetyness.
I love staying in this hotel which exceeds my expectations.. thank you

Room is very nice and huge compare to other Motel 6 I stayed in. Staff (Jojo) was very helpful and accommodating when we checked out. I would definitely stay again here in the future and will recommend this Hotel to all of my friends. And in addition I feel very secured to this location that they have a security during night time.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room close to the lobby area.

I stayed for 2 nights over Christmas last week while visiting family nearby. I was just looking for clean and comfy sleeping and bathing accomadations.The property is almost totally renovated and the rooms and lobby are done as well as part of their parking lot, which is all being re-paved.. Everything is new in the rooms and like other renovated Motel 6's I have been to in this style, the feel is rather Palm Springs mod- but for a very inexpensive price. With wood laminate floors, streamlined furniture, comfortable beds, flat screen TV , fridge and microwave in the room, and immaculate bathroom with new fixtures, there is nothing negative to say. At the time I was there they had not yet installed key entry only doors to all buildings on the property, which was a bit of a security concern, but I was assured by the manager that this will be accomplished very soon. There is an Ikea store and a large shopping center across the street and though Carson is certainly not the fanciest place, it is freeway accessible and convenient to the South Bay Beach cities as well as Long Beach and OC.If you have a dog, this is the best way to go- but its great value even if you don't. I would definitely stay there again! Its more comfortable than staying with my family! My room was facing the st in front but property is set back from the rd and I found it very quiet. The rooms in the back part of the property face the freeway and may have been noisier.

Roach in the rooms, very nasty poor service, I would stay again next time coz this is the most affordable you can get at a great location and good rooms. For sure when they are done renovating, this can earn 5 stars for a budget hotel.Fortunately construction resumed at 7:00 the next morning, so we had an alarm to wake us so we could get the heck out of there!

Dear Mathis, I thank you for taking the time out to let us know about your experience here and that we have good rooms at great rates! We strive towards excellence so feedback like yours helps us define problem issues that need to be resolved. As you know, we are in the process of renovating our hotel, in the hopes of being able to provide our guests with a beautiful new facility to enjoy.

We would appreciate the opportunity to be able to ensure a wonderful stay upon your next visit. Please contact me directly and I will happily extend to you the best room we have available at an unbeatable rate once the renovation is complete (or your travels bring you back our way). Regards.

This is my second time to stay at this hotel and I had a better experience! Compared to the old rooms, the new rooms were much comfortable, with fluffier pillows, newly painted walls, easier access to the lobby, still very clean, new digital aircon/heater and overall, everything feels new. If available, do request for the new rooms!

The downside is that they didn't allow local calls that time and the parking area is being renovated.

I would stay again next time coz this is the most affordable you can get at a great location and good rooms. For sure when they are done renovating, this can earn 5 stars for a budget hotel.

They were doing construction which wasn't listed anywhere when I booked. The parking lot has massive pot holes and even the driveway entrance I thought the bottom of my car would be scrapped off. Telephone was missing buttons, microwave had wrong plate in it so couldn't use it. Vending machine were out of order and the comforter I had had burn holes in it. You can tell the maids barely cleaned the room because under bathroom sink there was trash and also under bed. Even though rooms are inside its not secure.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to an outside door.

I was in a newly remodeled room and it was awesome. Above average size for a king room with a fridge and microwave. LOVE the wood laminate floors. You know if it's clean or not--unlike carpeting. The bathroom had all new fixtures which worked wonderfully. It does not matter to me, but there is no furniture in the room except for the bed, built-in table and bench seat, and a chair-No dressers. For me, I never use dressers in a hotel. I literally live out of the suitcase. The 32" flat screen TV is built-in and mounted on the wall opposite the bed. Would be nice if there was HD programming for the HD-ready TV. I was very pleased with the internet speed. The free wifi is faster than most hotels.
There was a strange quirk with my room key--it kept getting demagnetized almost everyday. I have never had that happen as often as this. The staff said it was probably my phone demagnetizing it. Mythbusters has debunked this, but I kept the keycard away from my phone thereafter, but it would still get demagnetized. I am assuming it is the new locking software for Motel 6 just took over the property, so there could still be some software kinks to work out.
Also, because they just took over, there was also areas of the hotel still in need of renovation. There were ladders and drop cloths in the lobby. There were workers on the property daily but there was no noise during sleeping hours. I am not letting the ongoing renovations bother me, for it is temporary. The place will be awesome when they are done.
There was always plenty of parking. Locationwise, there is a Target and mall food court for food across the street. A few other restaurants including Chiles and Tony Romas are in the are. Also, a 24 Hours fitness. NO excuse to miss the gym when it's right there.
I really appreciated the room. I had never stayed in a Motel 6 before and I was very pleased. The most pleasing aspect was most everything was new. I hope Motel 6 maintains the property so this place is a nice one year, two years from now.
