The night between 23 and May 24, 2015 at Motel 6 Salinas South was the worst of my life. The shower and taps were only leaving boiling water, we can not even give a bath in our baby of 1 year and a half. We could not even wash our hands because that water was burning, and according to the...

There was a lack of ordinary furniture in the room. Sure there was a bed, a very small desk and a TV stand forced into double duty as a "closet". No dresser. No closet. I was staying there to attend a wedding with formal clothes and sorely missed the ability to use clothing related furniture. Stayed there three nights over...

I stayed in this motel for 5 nights while attending the IMSA races at Laguna Seca race track. It was newly renovated and very clean. New beds and other furnishings. New flat screen Samsung TV. Nice helpful people at the front desk. I had FedEx deliver packages for me to the front desk. I had to show ID before they...

I stayed in this motel while attending the Sea Otter bike races. It's the first motel I have stayed in that did not have any carpet. The mattress had a ridge running down the middle of it. The bedding was worn out. The bedspread had a hole in the middle of it with a few crude stitches holding it closed....

They have totally renovated this hotel. Right? We decided to visit the Monterey area during Motor Week on short notice. Unfortunately, this was the only place available. Based on previous reviews, they may have slapped a new coat of paint on the place, but they haven't conquered their bug problem. My ten year old daughter, who is allergic to bug...

Stopped here during an unplanned road trip. Price was great, but the rest was average. I asked for a non-smoking room, but our room had ashtrays. There was a strange (pet?) odor, that was not pleasant, but we were tired and just needed to sleep so we just accepted the room as it was. Everything about the room was basic.

Yes, the hotel is basic and small, but if you are in a budget and travel to Monterey, Ca. as often as we do this Motel is okay, a lot of parking. There is a jack and a dennys right around the corner, like 20steps. Front office is great, they always keep your room reserved even if you arrive after...
