“Value for Money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

The more I read some reviews of different Motel 6s, the more I think they're planted by the competition.

This place is clean, quiet, the morning coffee is drinkable, a cheery "good morning sir" from the desk clerk.

I'm here on business for a start-up company and money is tight. I'm really thankful that this chain exists. They're owned by the Accor group in France where I live. If you have a problem with one of these Motel 6s and don't get satisfaction in the States, write to corporate in France - you probably will get a more attentive ear.

For a short stay, this place is perfect

Quit yer belly aching!!!

Have stayed here a few times. Again its motel 6. What can you really say?? the staff has always been friendly and helpful. The rooms have been fairly consistent. I had one incident where I was not happy with the cleanliness and they resolved it very quickly. Beds are again your average motel 6 bed. not real comfy but will do. There are a few decent place to eat close by. it is close to the freeway but not so close you get the noise. If you need a clean quiet room for a night or two it is a good place for the money. If you want amenities of course you will have to look elswhere.

If you want to spend under $50 in a major metro area, you have to lower your expectations. Certainly the case here. Check-in clerk was friendly and competent, but the first room he gave me had a horrendous smell. No way. The second room smelled okay – and on the upside and new carpets and curtains and a fresh coat of paint. But the shower had a leaky showerhead, the AC had a broken grille (but worked), the chair was wobbly, and unlike most M6s with one bed, there was no table. Bed was swaybacked and lumpy though I slept fine. Bare bones and marginal, but tolerable for true tightwads.

Until recently, I would have given this Motel 6 location at least 4 Stars, as I've stayed here before as it is an inexpensive Motel alternative, always clean, quiet, and safe, with a grocery chain, small restaurants, and misc. business services adjacent, within walking distance. However, after my last visit...

a $$$ WARNING to everyone.

The payment methods of the Motel 6 office is atrocious. I was charged twice for the same room, for the same night, because the office's Credit Card/Debit machine was not "working properly". I spoke with the Motel Manager, who said that he would "personally" resolve the problem, and I followed up with a detailed reference letter, all of which was ignored by the management. And, Corporate Motel 6, will not help as each establishment functions on it's own. Considering what it cost me to stay there, from now on for these quick trips, I'll give my business to the other Motel chains like Super 8, Days Inn, etc.. They are a little bit more but quite a bit less $$ considering the outcome. And If you need to spend a bit more anyway, you might as well get your money's worth as the other motels have so many more basic amenities already built into the price.

Stayed at this particular location due to its proximity to both San Jose & San Fransisco. Easy freeway access out when done so no time spent on the busy freeways. Bare bones room with a bed. I've been to better motel 6s. The staff is courtious and it feels more or less secure than some spots in this general area. No raves to speak about really. Was somewhat taken aback by the fact that they only supply 2 towels. (little ones). Unless quick in-out your money might be better spent down the road at one of the major motels nearby for about $30 more.

We stay here when we visit family in Fremont because if we don't have a car we can walk to their house in about 20 minutes and we have easy access to BART and buses. This is a no frills motel: no hair dryer, no clock, just bare basics for an overnight stay. Towel/washcloth restocking was inconsistent from day to day. Tub faucet had great output, but shower was very weak and temperature fluctuated (did not match tub output). Showerhead a bit low for my height. Beds were on the stiff side. Hard to beat for the price, though. Located behind Luckys grocery store, near a handful of food shops. On the bus line. We recommend the fresh donut and bagel shop located next to the Subway shop. Across busy street from farmer's market.
