I have to say reading these reviews of the hotel some are misrepresented.

The location is just outside the tourist area of Gas Lamp Quarter, one of the most famous places in San Diego. So without breaking the bank this is an ideal location, and only 5-6 blocks away. 10 blocks to Petco Park for the ball fans.

The rooms were small, updated and a modern twist, no more then 2 people per room, its a funcitional room, nothing special, note they do not supply shampoo or anything.

Parking is tight, but with two lots there is always a space available, i drove around during my stay and never missed a spot. The area is on the outside of a tourist zone, and like more american cities that have hot spots the outsides are sometimes not as nice, during the day there was nothing wrong, and i did walk at night, but you have to have common sense and keep your witts and you'll be fine.

The hotel staff was great, Kurt the manager was good on his promise of a quite, clean room, if you have any problems talk to him. He's more then generous.

All in all its well worth the price, as you are walking distance from anything, food, night life, warf, battleships.

Warning: There is limited to zero internet ( that you have to purchase for 2.99 for 24hrs) unless your room has the router.

We stayed for 3 nights in August, managed to find hotel very easily from the airport, its right off the I-5 so easy enough to find. Parking was fairly simple, they have 2 car parks, one that is behind the hotel and one on the side. Side car park was a bit smaller and sometimes difficult to park in but back car park was fine and easy to use as well.
Check in went smoothly, Abby was extremely helpful throughout our entire stay, providing us with a map, idea of where to go and eat and also a cooler box which we returned after our stay.
Room was fine, very comfortable, maid service every day, only complaints are sometimes floors weren't always clean and even though we found wifi to only be $2.99 per day, we had problems with connectivity as the signal was quite weak!
Overall, its in a really good location and its 15 mins walk to Gaslamp district, we had a car for the trip so found it a great location for our price.

Very clean and comfortable room. I stayed one night and enjoyed it very much after a day at Sea World. The flooring and bathroom were brand new. The bed was comfortable. The TV reception great. The noise level fine (Tuesday night). The service was good and I was given directions to local restaurants where I wanted to eat by the staff. My only complaint was that the room seemed a bit small to me which would not make a place I would want to room for a whole week.

This was my first experience w/ Motel 6, and it was a pleasant one. The rooms were very clean, simply and modern. Reminded me of futuristic rooms from a movie or something. No bells and whistles in room, but blow dryers, irons and extra amenities were available upon request. Staff members were nice and helpful. Gaslamp and the cruise harbors were walking distance (about 15 mins), but we were running a little late (our own faults), so we took a cab instead. Outside the hotel was quiet. Keys/cards are required to enter through back parking lot, so there was some sense of safety there. I'd def. stay there again.

I have stayed at this location previously. You can't beat the location for the price you pay. It has undergone a remodel in the past year, and it's great. The only negative I would have to comment on is the parking, but it's downtown San Diego, so it's to be expected. If you want an area with better parking or bigger rooms for the same price, stay in a more generic area like Hotel Circle. I took my 11 year old daughter, and the single room was big enough for us. She loved the experience we had from walking around in the gaslamp district.
