“OK but not a lot of choices”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Motel 6 Santa Clara was the only available lodging at the time of my booking. Recently renovated. Rooms nice but you get a lot of workers, sharing room and it can be very loud. Rooms definitely need better sound proofing. Also paid extra for very bad wi fi service.
Front office folks nice. At 80/night, your best deal in the area.

Room Tip: for better wifi stay closer to the front office

Heat wave in the SF bay area. My apt has no a/c and no insulation so it makes for a very hot place. Booked 2 nights here not expecting too much (except a/c).

I was greeted to ants on the bed (in the sheets), ants on the floor, and 2 roaches by the garbage can. Stains on the bed sheets AND the mattress covers! The stains were so obvious. Housekeeper is either blind, doesn't care, or isn't given clean sheets. The towels also had questionable stains.

Yes, the room is remodeled but doesnt make up for the insects in the room, the stains on the sheets and the pieces of hair I found everywhere.

I stayed one night (slept with all my clothes on and in the bed lined with plastic bags. I did not stay the 2nd night. Put in an official complaint via email about the lack of cleanliness of this location. I wont be staying at any Motel 6 again...u don't have to leave the light on for me.

Room Tip: Dont stay here!

We stayed here overnight at the half way point on a long drive. Check in was very easy, and prices are posted on the wall, so there's no overcharging, which I always feel hotels do. I was pleasantly surprised when I walked into the room. It was completely remodeled art deco style. Very clean, all new, and no more carpet. I think carpet is filthy, so it was nice to see wood laminate flooring in the entire room and bath. I thought it may be colder in the room with the flooring, but it was warm and comfortable. Still just the basics, soap and small towels. No refrigerator or clock. But they take dogs for free, had plenty of parking, and the staff were nice. The area is nothing fancy, but it was safe. It was a good overnight stay, especially for the price.

this place had chicken wire for an air conditioner vent! the tub enclosure was peeling. a real section 8 housing kind of place. Not for vacationers. I called the main office for motel 6, and offered pictures I had taken. They were not interested in the least. I was sent a certificate for another stay.

Compared to our last stay in Super 8 at Berkeley the rooms here are not that good. But since we did only sleep here it was okay.

Simple no-frill stay. Nothing special but at US$55 the acco was a good one. However if you need wi-fi, be prepared to pay extra. No gadgets like microwave or refrigerator. I would rate it as a very average accommodation. Rooms were clean and daily cleaning was good.

This was the cheapest rate I could find on the internet, and I was prepared for an adventure. The hotel was in a busy area of Santa Clara with lots of strip malls and fast food joints around. The hotel staff was courteous and I did not have any problems with check in/out or daily room cleaning, except they do not provide shampoo so bring your own. The problem was I booked non-smoking and the room was clearly marked non-smoking but there was an overwhelming stench of tobacco in the room that overpowered my as soon as I walked in. I eventually was able to cope with it by opening the window all the way and blasting the air conditioner at the same time. .

Room Tip: "Non smoking" may not mean non-smoking
