I stayed here overnight, however I would not mind having a longer stay. I checked in late and because the motel was full I unfortunately got a room facing the freeway, but until about 5 AM the traffic on I-8 was very light.
This Motel 6 is remodeled in the new corporate style, and while it does retain some furnishings from the previous era, it has laminate flooring throughout and no longer has those ugly bright blue bedspreads. It also has a flat screen TV, though the channels are all standard definition. The bathroom has been remodeled with a trendy new sink and black quartz countertops, though it still retained the old high-capacity-flush toilet (ironic given how Motel 6 puts low-flow restrictors even on the faucets).
The room was clean, though the light fixture in the bathroom could use having the dead insects cleaned out of it. There are some chips in the laminate floor from previous inconsiderate guests, and the laminate between the toilet and shower has a big water stain from an overflow that was not mopped up in time, but the room otherwise seemed decently maintained.
There is a parking area in back large enough for semi-trucks, several of which were parked there during my stay. There are some restaurants within walking distance including Carl's Jr (next door) and IHOP.
