“Great place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

We came here for a basketball tournament at sdsu. The place we normally stay only had smoking rooms so we gave this place a try. The rooms were newly remodled with hardwood floors and flat screen TVs. The surroundings of the hotel were quiet and not unsafe feeling at all. They had a security officer walking around all the time. They were very accommodating to our basketball team of 16 players and 4 coaches. They couldn't give us rooms together but didn't hassle us about anything like other places have. The location was very close to sdsu considering we would have paid twice as much to stay a little closer.

I have stayed at this Motel on previous occasions and it was dull and uninspiring, possibly due to management.
Recently the motel has been refurbished and the atmosphere is relaxed, happy and harmonious under the new manager.

I stayed for a 2 night business trip. I was pleasantly surprised at the room. It had hardwood floors, art deco towel holder and they painted one of the walls orange. It was clean and spacious for motel 6. My only two minor complaints are the Internet is slow and the shower pressure was soft. But they really impressed me and I think all motel 6 should follow suit. Also there is an abundance of food places within a mile of the hotel. Will definitely stay there again if I'm back in SD.

The room was decently priced, was very clean (has been newly remodeled), and even though we arrived after dark and couldn't tell if the neighborhood was good or not, we didn't have any problems with the location. Close to the mall and shopping. About 20 minute drive to Sea World. Would probably stay again.

Basic rooms. Newly renovated. Dodgy area. Definately not a holiday destinaton. Nice carpet free floors make for clean and bright. No fridge in room and only communal microwave available. No frills here.

Check in went smoothly. Coffee was ready early the next morning. Very comfortable, firm mattress. Clean walls-looks like the property has been recently improved. Quiet 2nd floor room. Very clean other than a few hairs in the bathroom.
