We stayed here for two nights, 2 adults, 3 children. They beds were okay, not the most comfy, but I have had worse. It is a bit overpriced considering there is no breakfast or toiletries in the room. It was clean, completely remodeled. The new showers Motel 6 has put in all of their rooms are on the small side...

It's actually not that easy to find because it's located in the middle of nowhere. The positive is that it's a 3-min drive from the freeway. The hotel looks cheap, but that's because the price is cheap. The staff is alright. Not too friendly and not too rude. I can't comment on the breakfast because my package didn't include any....

As I have said before, the business model of Motel 6 is to offer bottom-level prices for bottom-level amenities in acceptable lodging. This is certainly the case for this Motel 6, which was right along the main artery of US Highway 101, on the south side of San Jose. My room was pretty much bare bones: half-bath, phone (free local...

We stopped by here on our way south. Again, we stay in hotels 7 days a week. The cleanliness wasn't a huge issue, there isn't anything to clean! You get a bed for $100.00. No desk, 1 chair from a kindergarten class, what appeared to be a counter from a diner somewhere. They do not offer free wifi, you have...

We stayed here during quick stopover to visit family. Upon arrival, we were asked for all IDs because the area wasn't the best. We were told to keep things out of car because thefts do occur. We had no issues but may consider another location next time.

I visited the motel two times which was a convenience for resting after a meeting in San Jose State University. In the hotel the place is clean and well prepared with the available amenities. I also took the time to offer pizza for dinner which was a feast. I will look forward to relax in this Motel again I'm case...

This is probably my third time staying at this hotel over the years (once some months ago). I stay there because many hotels in San Jose near where I do my events (a fulltime nationally performing comic ventriloquist) are priced sky high. On two previous occasions (I may have done a review) I had DREADFUL internet where I either couldn't...

They didn't listen to customers. The girl with a blond hair tried to kick me out since I already paid and requested to have two room next to each others but she asked me if I wanted to go to another hotel at 12 am. I was shocked! She didn't say Sorry but like yelling at customers. I came on...
