This is one of the best motel 6 i even been to! There was even a nice TV, mini fridge and a microwave in the room!! There was also a grocery store near by so I didnt just have to eat fastfood all day long!

To be clear, this is one of two Motel 6's on Blackstone in Fresno. This is the northern one, on the west side of the street just north of Ashlan Ave. near the Hwy. 41 exit, across from the Economy Inn and Carrows Restaurant. The other Motel 6 is a couple blocks south on the east side of the street. I've stayed at both of these, and reading the negative comments here, I wonder if some people got them confused, because the south location actually is pretty bad. The area isn't very nice and feels dodgy, and one of my first impressions when I stayed there once was seeing a big bouncer type guy, who looked a bit like Mr. T, come into the office and deducing from hearing him and the clerk talking that he was the night security guard. Eeek.

Anyway....the NORTH Blackstone location is quite decent. I sometimes stay there on my way home from Death Valley so I can make a visit to Fresno's Mormon temple, which is nearby. I've always found this Motel 6 clean, efficient, and safe and haven't felt insecure, although like any urban environment, everyone has to use some sense in walking around at night. IMO, the biggest threat in the area, especially at night, would be trying to walk across Blackstone without getting run over. The traffic all along Blackstone is truly alarming--and I live in San Francisco!

Motel 6's don't have restaurants, but there are several in the immediate area, and also a Von's supermarket a few steps away and a carwash a block north.

The rooms on the front facing the street do tend to be a bit noisy until the evening traffic thins out; Blackstone is a very busy thoroughfare. But at night, there isn't much traffic. Yes, the walls are thin--it's a Motel 6, not the Ritz. It has a laundry room, newspaper and soda machines, and a pool in the back away from the street. As I said, whadya want for $40 a night?

I'd recommend it to a friend who wasn't too demanding, who didn't expect a lot of frills or services, but wanted a decent, affordable place to sack out.

Everything about our stay at this Motel 6 was wonderful!
Staff were personable, polite & friendly.
Room was spotless and beautifully maintained.
Even close to busy streets, there was no "road noise" to keep us up.
We WILL stay here again, and recommend it to everyone!

The thing about Motel 6 is that you never know what you're gonna get. I've stayed in many Motel 6's in the past decade. Some were relatively new and actually quite delightful. And others are just downright disgusting. This location however ranks right down below with the Motel 6 on Dean Martin in Las Vegas.. absolutely revolting and horrifying. I didn't spend too much time in Fresno, but I hope to God there are actual nicer parts of the town. Because from what I had seen of Fresno it is a total dump and this motel was a reflection of it.

I booked 3 nights at this Motel 6 as it was central to both Sequioa and Yosemite National Parks. Proximity to the parks was pretty much all this motel had going for it. Apart from that there was nothing to like about it. The room smelled of cigarette smoke despite it being a nonsmoking room. The carpets were stained and the sheets were soiled. The walls were pretty thin and much noise came in from the street. There were cigarette burns along the edge of the bathroom sink. Til this day I still regret using the motel towels.

I even considered moving to a different hotel during the stay, but other nearby places were either full or prohibitively more expensive, and besides didn't look any better. So I decided to just stick it out like a champ. The good thing is that I was out before dawn and back in well after dusk every day. My advice.. don't walk, run away from this Motel 6. You definitely get what you pay for.

This is a hotel truck stop kind of Motel 6. It`is OK, but nothing else. Recommend for single men. Not for families. Rooms were renovated, but still, non-smoking room smelld like smoke.
Rooms are small, light and sound from exterior hallways come into room esily. Almost no privacy.

BEWARE: No internet
