Motel 6 Palm Springs East

Reviewed September 9, 2013

Stayed here about 10 minutes. They had bugs. They assured us a termix guy would be the Monday. But we checked in on Friday. So we left staff was great and understanding. And yet I'm still waiting on my refund.

Spacious no frills rooms. Basic accommodation for an affordable Coachella week end. Internet is super cheap. Front desk is friendly. The big downside if you're there for Coachella is the drive - It's a 36 min away from Coachella.

I stayed here coachella weekend one last year with two other people and all three of us got attacked by bed bugs. We all ended up bringing them to our respective homes and the motel 6 staff was completely unhelpful. After admitting they had an exterminator confirm that there were bed bugs in our room, they still refused to refund even out room charges, not to mention the thousands we spent on extermination. LITERALLY RUINED MY LIFE FOR 3 MONTHS. DO NOT STAY HERE, awful management awful rooms, awful conditions.

Dear Guest,

We take bed bug reports very seriously and sincerely apologize for your experience and for the unsatisfactory response you received to your complaint. We will contact you directly in order to address this situation.

Please know that we are on high alert regarding this issue and are mindful to monitor our rooms in order to address, treat and terminate any issues if we discover them. We have designed a thorough and strict procedure to address all complaints or potential issues within our hotel. Unfortunately, bed bugs are a world-wide problem and present a unique challenge due to their highly transient nature, traveling easily in luggage and clothing. This is why we continually train our housekeeping staff to proactively monitor all guest rooms for the potential presence of bed bugs and have standing contracts with professional exterminators to treat affected areas in case any are discovered on our premises. No room gets released until we have an all-clear from them. Thank you again for bringing this issue to our attention.

This is a typical Motel 6; however, when we checked in, the front desk clerk was at the end of her shift and it showed. She was positively rude and not at all helpful. When we finally got checked in with the correct price...she was trying to charge me $10/night more than the rate I was quoted earlier, she came out with the company line..."thank you for choosing Motel 6, have a wonderful day". OMG...she certainly did not contribute to my having "a wonderful day".

Room Tip: Ensure that you insist on the correct price for the room before you check in!

I had to go the front desk for bath towels because none were in the hotel room.
When we went to watch TV, the remote didn't work . . . It probably needed new batteries. The clerk was alone at the desk & wanted me to get dressed & come down so she could replace batteries. I said never mind. They should have things in working order.
Well, I guess that's what we get when we go to motel 6!!! Never again.

Room Tip: Always get a room upstairs so you don't have people stomping above you.

I've stayed here twice in the past year. Great price for a modest room. Fairly large motel. Pool is large enough so one is not crowded, though I've never seen a lot of people in it. Very relaxing to lie by the pool and enjoy the palm trees and mountains. Location is about a mile or two from the main part of downtown Palm Springs. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance but haven't tried them. Staff was very helpful and made sure discounts were applied for the lowest rates. One friend stayed in a room that had a filthy sink but that was the only problem. There seemed to be a few long stay residents but they were quiet and kept to themselves.

I found a knife under the mattress. The manager was apologetic and offered a another room. The second room smelled of urine and was dirty. The beds and towels smelled, were stained, and all had hairs on them. The bathroom water was brownish and there was a fly in the room. The staff was understanding when I wanted to leave and gave me a full refund. It seemed as if they were too familiar with that request...
