“Good Enough”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

I stayed here for one night before the Surf City Marathon.Room was clean. Very basic , but clean. There was free WIFI, but slow and would disconnect many times. The room was good for the price especially since I just needed close place to crash before the race.If you're looking for a cheap place to stay this may be the place for you.

Room 403 is tiny but surprisingly quiet, considering it is directly above the office and right out on the main street. I could hear people knocking on the door of the adjacent rooms early in the morning, but I was awake already. Didn't use the WiFi. I would say this property is about in the 40th percentile of Motel 6's. Accor runs a decent hotel chain.

Room Tip: I bet the rooms are better in back

It's what you would expect from a Motel 6...not too much. A very basic motel. Bring your own shampoo and hair dryer as the only thing they provide is bar soap and towels. There wasn't even any tissues. According to the other reviews, the back rooms are quieter. I wouldn't know. I had a room up front, and you can definitely hear the traffic going by. The walls are thin and the area looked rather suspect, but nobody broke into my car or anything. The wi-fi was annoying because you had to reconnect to it about every 5 minutes. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. Good place to stay if you're just looking for some place cheap.

Clean, spacious, with comfortable bed. Room recently painted, in good repair. No extras, very basic but adequate. Room did have a refrigerator and a table with 2 chairs. WIFI was a pain and slow. We had to constantly log in because every time a device went to sleep, we would get logged out. Barely adequate to pick up email but not much more. Nonsmoking motel, a plus. The light was out around the TV unit and was fixed promptly the next day. Bring your own hair dryer or ask at the office for one as none in the room (hair dryer was clogged at the end and hadn't been cleaned, even when asked; they stared at me like they didn't know why or how to do it; we had to clean the lint ourselves to get more power). If you need a cheap place to stay and don't expect to spend time in the room, this will be fine.

Room Tip: Upstairs and away from road. The floors are wood (good) so you will hear footsteps above you (disadv...

Exactly what you would expect for a Motel 6. Cheap and affordable. Families make it pretty loud. The thin walls mean you hear everything. Plan on brining your own soap, towels and pillows, unless you can make do with the absolute basics. An honest motel a few miles from the beach that is good for families.

Very well ocated, this remodelled Hotel 6 is very good. The ambiance is very modern and by changing the carpets to solid floors, they have given a good step towards cleaner, healthier hotel rooms. The beds are very confortable, wi-fi works great, service was amiable. Very good hotel indeed.

And that's because I took the time to really read everyone's reviews and it is just that - a nice, basic hotel. Down in the area for an extended 8 day trip - trying to save some money for this unexpected trip. I travel for work and am in hotels 3-5 nights a month so I knew this was going to be an experience because of the price. I was staying alone for this period of time too so safety was a concern. Please read if you want a real objective truth.

Check In - Mack was so friendly and helped me get an even cheaper rate than I booked on-line. He let me go look at the room before I signed on the dotted line to ensure I felt safe.
Room TIP: If you want the quietest rooms, ask for the rooms above the underground parking lot that's inside the buildings. The doors to these few rooms don't expose you to the outside parking lot that you see in most the pictures.

Room: No nonsense bare bones kind of room. The hard wood floors were nice, it was clean, there were towels for two, mini fridge with little freezer, microwave, two full size beds that were actually comfortable, a table, free wi-fi that wasn't the fastest but it worked. The TV was a nice flat screen with two HBO channels that helped me kill time.

What you need to bring: Additional towels, soap, hair dryer.
Room downside: The mini fridge was a tad loud and the air conditioning wall unit I had to rig sometimes to not shake. Again - not bad at all - just a heads up.
Another thought: I brought my own pillows and towels for this stay. Unfortunately, I wasn't smart enough to bring colored towels or pillowcase so my pillow case and one towel was swapped out because it was off white colored and matched what was already in the room. It wasn't their fault how could they know - just a tip to think about.

Food: There's vending machines and ice and laundry. A cute pizza place literally next door with a nice bar and good food.
Location:
This location is 10 minutes to get to the pier and park to enjoy the beach all day. Easy on and off the freeway, it doesn't look like it's in the best neighborhood from the front. However, I had plenty of down time to drive around and quite frankly the neighborhood is real cute and nice all behind the row of hotels where this hotel is located.

Would I go back? Absolutely yes. The price is unbeatable for the area. It's a clean hotel, very nice helpful customer service, I had no issues being solo for 8 days. I'm writing the review to share my really positive experience. I even got a thank you back from Motel 6 from Mack when I filled out a survey after my stay - I liked that touch.

Room Tip: Back rooms above the underground parking.
