“Would not stay here again.”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Did not feel safe here, worried about our new car parked here, had to call mgmt at 1 AM due to yelling and screaming next room, (our room fee was refunded due to these issues).
Room was very shabby and did not feel clean, also smoking smell was strong. Blanket on bed was horrible-looking. TV remote did not work. Very disapointed -- am not feeling good about Motel 6 overall, had another bad experience the night before at Motel 6 in Hemet, CA.

I was thankfully only staying 1 night, it was really just a place to sleep for a few hours while passing thru CA. The lock on the door was broken/hanging off, I had to screw it back on myself. After a long drive I wanted to watch some TV before falling asleep, the TV is very very small (I believe it was just 13') and did not swerve on it's stand so when laying on the bed on the right it was hard to see, it also had lots of static. The next morning I noticed there were boogers on the wall by the sink in the vanity area. Pillows were flat and bed wasn't very comfy. There was not an alarm clock and the room only had 1 outlet. Night check-in is done outside thru a window, it was cold and there were 4 people ahead of me, it was not very fun waiting in the cold. The price for 1 night was $66, I believe that is WAY overpriced for a low quality hotel room. I have stayed at other Motel 6's and never had issues like this.

i arrived to Escondido, and i picked this hotel because of the price and location.

the internet was what i would say the worst part, it's was very slow and dropped a few times (also a 2.99 a day charge was tacked on)

the room was clean, everything worked bathroom shower worked well. bed was comfortable.

the laundry was a fair price to wash and dry.

Worst experience at a Motel 6 ever! The reservations were messed up, the rooms were dirty and smelled bad, and all the amenities were old and barely working. A family that we were traveling with had their reservations messed up and the manager refused to help them get the issues fixed. The manager claimed there were no other rooms to switch too but a front desk employee said that there were other rooms available. The manager also claimed he called other Motel 6 in the area but they were all sold out as well. I called the 1-800 Motel 6 number and they had 2 rooms for us at a different location within in minutes. Would not recommend anyone stay here! I would pay a little extra anyday to find a different motel to stay at.

I travel a lot in Asia and I have s saying when traveling, "This place looks almost like a motel 6," but hard to find. Traveling In Calcutta, India I found "Super Guest House" which is almost that Motel 6 standard. Many hotels either not up to the Motel 6 standard or are $100 a night too costly. I have just come to notice over the years, this Motel 6 in Escondidod like all Motel 6's is always having carpets shampooed, or buying new mattresses or phones, always maintaining the building so that it is up to that Motel 6 standard. I grew up on family trips with my dad taking us to motel 6's because he had that minimum standard of cleanliness for his family. The Escondido Motel 6 is like all Motel 6's, clean, comfortable and nice office staff. Wish they had a motel 6 closer to Poway. Rod Stansbery

Room Tip: At Motel 6's always chose a room near the office whre is is the quietest. The way Motel 6's...

We've stayed at a lot of Motel 6 motels in the past but this one rated as one of the worst that we have stayed at. The area that it was located in didn't feel safe and I was nervous about leaving anything in the car. The room smelled like mildew and the carpet felt wet and was very stained. I didn't ask the price and was disapointed to find out it cost over $70. Would not recommend staying here.

my only complaint about this motel was the check-in person, who looked like a high school girl. she apparently had little training because she had no social skills, said nothing during the check-in process, was not friendly or courteous or helpful.
otherwise the motel was standard for a motel 6. room was clean and parking was not a problem. i used the fan as white noise to drown out the traffic noise. the place was quiet the night i stayed with noone lingering outside.
