“not thrilled”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

There were 6 nice blood stains on the carpet next to the sink. I'm thrilled I managed to step on one of the red drops before I looked down. I washed my feet after that, then I went to dry my feet I noticed the towel was covered with yellow stains, I hope they were stains and it wasnt just an: unwashed towel. Next time I will spend 10 dollars more and stay at the red roof inn across the street. I'm praying that bed bug will not be in my room

IF you dont want to sleep on yellow matresses with bloodstains on then absolutely do not stay here. This is the worst hotel I have ever staid at in my life. We checked in and recieved our key card on the way to the room very shady looking people were coming and going. we got into the room and at first sight i was disgusted the floors were badly dirty with some black looking burns in them the counters and table were poorly cleaned, hangers and coat rack were Badly dirty and rusted there was thick dirt around the edges of the carpet and stains on the chair and only one light in the room would work and the tv would not work well either . The bed comforter was stained badly and had burn holes and rips in them. so i decided to lift up the blankets and sheets and found the WORST thing ever THE MATTRESS was YELLOW AND BROWN with BLOOD stains on them i did not even attempt to look under the other beds sheets. So I decided to call other hotels to check out as i was talking on the phone a COCK ROACH climed up from under the ripped carpet and up the wall. this was ridiculous and the most discusting disgrace for a hotel ever

Room Tip: Worst hotel ever

I can't understand all the negative reviews this Motel 6 has received. I've stayed here almost every time driving north to the sierras, and if anything, it's gotten better each time. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the TV and A/C worked fine, and the front desk help were very friendly and courteous.

Some of those reviews pertain to the seedy characters that the motel might have attracted in the past, but that isn't the case now. The front desk told me that non-guests aren't allowed on the property after 10 PM, and they have a security guard service to enforce this. It does make the place look and feel safer.

If those past negative reviews are true, then this Motel 6 has since taken heed and have cleaned up their act. I'll be staying here again..

It's simple: Dont' stay here! We have stayed in several Motel 6 before and been happy but this is a disgrace to the hotel chain. We came into the room and got thrown back by the smell of - sorry to say- HORSE OR COW MANURE! It was a non smoking room but the smell of old smoke was even heavier than the one of cow s...! On our way out we found a big cockroach. We told the maid and she didn't look like that was very unusual!

The front desk lady was nice and professional. She apologized a lot, gave us free wifi and 10$ off for the inconvenience.

We got a new room. The smoke smell was just as terrible, but it was late, we have a small kid and we just had to take it at that point.

There were no "animals" but smoke holes in the blanket. All the clothes exposed to the beds/linen had to be washed at the next hotel. The smoke smell was incredible. Even our daughters hair smelled of smoke 8 hours after leaving the hotel.

At night we heard a security guard yelling at some people trying to sneak in the back of the hotel. Dogs barking etc.

We are unsure if we will ever stay at a Motel 6 again!

Room Tip: Dont' stay her here! But if you do at least keep away from the narrow alley at back of the hotel...

this place is really a poor excuse for a motel, The staff is VERY RUDE bunch of people, they never smile or say hi they sure dont make you feel very welcomed, it is obvious they dont care about there job or guests, and it shows, and will use any excuse to get rid of you!,

they have two ice machines but they never seem to work, one reason is they let their security guard fill his ice chest every nite even though there is clearly a sign not to fill the ice chest!,

The police are their almost everyday for one reason or another, they really should rent a room there so they will always be avaiable!!

my advise is to stay at the motel 6 at Ashlan and Blackstone, they wecome you with open arms, and are incredibley out going, i they enjoy their jobs and guests!
