Well I have not stayed in a Motel 6 in a long time. But let me say I forgot how very basic they are. My room was smaller than my cruise ship room for my cruise last month on Princess. The towels were small and well the sign said they would not be replaced for 3 days. Not the typical...

We stayed here just one night before beginning a long backpacking trip on the Tahoe Rim Trail. It was a chance to acclimate to the higher elevation of the mountains. Motel 6 is not known for being fancy, but this one was actually a cut below what we expected. The strangest thing was that the bathtub stopper was unscrewed and...

Cheap, affordable, near to everything. It's a motel there is not much to say really. It is opposite a place to buy food and you can walk to a locals bar. The place was clean and it takes pets which is always great. Sadly, it is not one of the updated Motel 6's................yet.

We had a change of plans and had to look for a place to sleep at 10pm on Sunday. Motel 6 was a good choice. It is a no frills place, but very clean and looks almost new. There is plenty of parking. We got checked in and out quickly. Recommended.

We stayed during the 4th of July weekend and booked in advance online. The location is great being very close to the lake and with free parking and Denny's nearby. The check-in line was very long and they were running a bit behind on cleaning the rooms but the front-desk staff worked quickly to resolve the issue. The rooms are...

We arrived early afternoon and were given a room directly which was nice of the guy at reception. Relaxed by the pool and left very early the next day. Kindly they even gave us some take away breakfast at 5am. English guy at the reception was very nice.

Too far to walk to any activity. Had to drive and then find parking. As to the rooms, they were tiny. Not much space to open two suite cases. Could deal with that....but no coffee pot, or frig in rooms as well as a hair dryer! Tv was ok but older and small. This was not cheap! We saw rooms...

Facility looked nice, close enough to be able to get to everything but still be away from it all. They are small rooms but we never planed on spending a lot of time in the hotel. Toilets were loud but they flushed. Pet friendly. Staff was very friendly. They do charge for wi-fi. No breakfast but they offer a coupon...
