We stayed here for one night, the room on first inspection was what we expected, basic and clean, as much as we could expect for what we paid. We arrived late afternoon, so we quickly dropped our bags and made our way to the beach to watch what was an AMAZING sunset. After drinks and dinner we returned late and had a few more drinks in our room. So when we actually got to sleep it was rather late, this is when I realised how dreadful the bed was! My side dipped really bad, it was knackerd!!! I couldn't sleep all night.
In the morning I told the receptionist, but all she replied with was "you should have told us and we could have moved you". 1am isn't really a good time to move rooms though!!
I just think that even though its a budget motel, decent beds should be a basic necessity!

We were very dissatisfied with the management of this Motel 6. Our large group of military motorcycle riders had a 2 night reservation on Fri., Mar. 22nd and Sat., Mar. 23rd. We arrived to the motel a little after 2 pm and we periodically were visited (starting at 3 pm) by hotel staff that was sent by the General Manager throughout our entire stay to inform us that we could not stand out in the parking lot talking amongst ourselves, we could not use the desk chairs from our rooms to sit on outside of our rooms, and the cops were called on numerous times without warrant. Each time we complied with the motel staff's request to stop doing whatever it was.

College students and another large group of patrons on the other side of the motel were partying and making havoc. However, our entire group was blamed for disturbing their hotel patrons and we were kicked out of the motel on Sat., Mar. 23rd. There were several patrons that were checking out on Saturday and not involved with us that were shocked that we were being kicked out of the motel. These patrons told us they heard nothing from us and it was the others that caused problems during the night of Friday, March 22, 2013. Even the cops that made several visits that were called out by the motel staff, stated they were called out for noise complaints but heard nothing when they were out. Several of us from our group were in bed asleep before 11 pm and we were shocked that we were kicked out of this motel for sleeping.

On the hotel experience itself, the walls are paper thin. You could hear your spouse as they were in the restroom inside our own room. I have to say the water pressure was awesome (compared to other hotels that we stayed at) and it seemed this motel had a water softener, which was great for my hair. The shower was a bit small, since it's a corner stall, but it was doable.

We even received a survey asking for our comments about our stay that felt like a slap in our faces. Due to the discrimination from the Motel 6 General Manager, we are pursuing legal action.

The room was clean, cheap and not too far from the beach. We were also within walking distance to Denny's. If we were staying more than one night, I would have went somewhere else though. The room smelled badly of mold. I woke up with a sore throat and stuffy nose. Other than the smell, it wasn't too bad. You get what you pay for.

We came on Saturday night. The place was totally crowded and it was very noisy around 6 pm. We were really afraid that we wouldn't get any sleep so we went first to get something to eat, then see some movies and came back late night expecting all the having loud parties and drinking. We were very surprised that everybody was quiet and calm.
The bed were really nice - firm.
The place is clean and you get what you pay for :)))) Just the walls are so thin, it seems like the're not there ;)

The service was friendly. The room was spartan but clean and refurbished. It. Was away from the roads so it was very quiet. This is your basic mole room but well worth it if you want to save a few $$$ Thenrkje is a Denny's next door with free wi-fi and a 10 percent discount for motel guests

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the back away from the roads to get quiet
