The staff was very friendly and helpful with our needs. The room was very clean and looked like recent upgrades had accured. The location was also great being close to the freeway. I would recommend this property to my family and friends.

I really like the updated look of Motel 6. The staff at the check in was very friendly and cheerful. My room was good too although I must say you can hear your neighbours very clearly, but then again: I have never stayed in a soundproof motelroom anyway. All depends on your neighbours of course too. Wifi had to be...

Stayed for a couple nights. Room was clean can't complain the only thing was the wi-fi it sucks so bad not worth paying for. However, there is an employee Anna she was very friendly and professional. What amazed me the most is the honesty of a one housekeeper. I left a $5 on the table then went out to go...

We attended an event and stayed at the hotel for two nights. It was a terrible value. There were minimal amenities in the room. There was no shampoo, no bath mat, no kleenex, no in-room coffee, no refrigerator, no microwave, no hair dryer, no iron/ironing board - maybe the hotel thinks we will steal the stuff? They did have coffee...

Yuck, yuck, yuck. Filthy room... long dark hairs and dirt on floor and bathroom. Bed sheets old and rough like sand paper. No shampoos or lotions, no hair dryer, no tissue. No coffee pot, fridge, or microwave. Room reserved for 4 people; yet room had only 3 bath towels, 1 hand towel and 1 wash cloth, and no bath carpet....

We stayed here for a night while traveling back to San Diego. The motel is nice and clean, just like most renovated Motel 6. The beds were comfortable and the room was good size. It was nice to have wooden floors instead of carpets, it felt a lot cleaner. A good place to spend a night while traveling.

This hotel was okay, nothing special. Just another stop on our road trip. Location was good and close to the main strip. Ice Machine did not work everything else was operational. There was a charge for the internet, but it worked well enough to stream netflix.

In the past, Motel 6 has not been on my hotel radar. I went a couple times when I was a kid and all I remember from those trips is smokey-smelling , musty rooms, with broken and/or outdated furniture and beds I didn't want to put my suitcase on, let alone sleep in. Fast forward to today and a lot...
