“Exactly what you would expect for a M-6”
Reviewed August 13, 2005

For $90 I got a clean room, a bar of soap, towels and HBO. That's it, that's what I paid for. Walls were pretty thin, you can hear your neighbor's shower running. But if you are looking for a well-executed, no frills hotel, this is it. Denny's next-door.

This is an above average Motel 6. I have stayed here for a week at a time in the past year because it suits my needs: inexpensive rates, responsive staff, convenience to stores, restaurants (Denny's is next door) and banks, and easy access. The carpets and bedding are clean, the cooling/heating system is adequate, the shower pressure is great with enough hot water to last the shower, and everything works. And if it doesn't (once I had a phone that did not ring), it is fixed right away. There is a laundry facility with 2 washers and 2 dryers; the facility also has a snack machine and a drink machine. I like that the motel is less than 5 minutes from stores and businesses yet is situated in a locale with lots of open space. A sweet little surprise is the inner courtyard which has flowering plants planted in a circle with a bird fountain in the center. And you can hear the birds greeting the morning. The only complaint, which came from my roommate, was that the TV offered very little choice in programming, but then that is one of the ways Motel 6 cuts costs I suppose. This motel gets interesting guests too---the parking lot was filled with Ducati motorcycles the weekend of the US Grand Prix World Championship motorcycle race at nearby Laguna Seca; another weekend the place was full of show-quality Great Danes, English Setters, French Bulldogs, and more, for the AKC All Breed dog show. The dogs were well-behaved; however, their excited owners did get a little rowdy. My phone call after midnight to the front desk was all it took for calm to settle over the motel. I highly recommend this motel for travelers just needing the basics delivered by staff who value their customers.

The Motel 6 in Marina is just that, adaquate. The room water was hooked up backwards and they did not have enough towels until late afternoon. However they did attend promptly to the few complaints I had. No pool but well landscaped. A good place to stay on the cheap near Monterey.
