We were on I-5 and believe me this motel is not near - we didn't know Bakersfield at all so just picked a Motel 6. It was 30 minutes from I-5. The front desk person was very nice, the room itself had been remodeled so it was nice (for a motel 6). The floor is the pretend wood which is... More

The Front Desk is great. the Room sucked. shower not clean. hair in sink. half empty Bud Light under bed. tv upper channels were fuzzy. Not the new updated Motel 6 that is advertised on TV. I stay at a lot of motel 6's, this is one of the worst. (shower on upper edges very dirty.

This was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The first room was horrible, there was a foul unidentifiable smell in the room, the carpet was dirty and buckled, there were many small holes in the drape, the grounds were littered with cigarette butts and trash. The second room, the front desk person brought a can of... More

So this was a last minute arrangement as we couldn't get into Yosemite due to the snow. Driving up it looks like your typical American motel that you see on the TV bit run down in a dodgy area but we were on a budget tour so this part didn't matter to us. It wasn't until you arrived at the... More

This hotel needs a remodel - way overdue. We walked in and it stunk so bad. Not sure what the smell was maybe mildew. We asked for a non-smoking room but yet there was an ashtray on the night stand. We had a big spider and cockroach in our room. The floor was so uneven the carpet was buckled that... More

Great location just off the interstate! The staff was very friendly and the room was clean and well maintained. The room was surprisingly quiet for being so close to the highway and across the street from a truck stop. I had a good nights sleep and was able to restart my journey early the next morning

Maybe the smallest room I have ever stayed at and definitely not the place for the claustrophobic. The girl at the front desk was nice but should have had some help to deal with all of the people.

Last year my partner and I did a bit of a road trip around California and stayed in some amazing motels all independently run. We had been advised that although a chain, Motel 6 was reasonable. We foolishly took this advice and I won't be repeating my experience. The room was rough and dirty. When lying on the bed we... More
