Let me start off by saying that I work for a 4 star hotel and major branded hotel. So I know the ins and outs of hotels. When I waited until the last minute to make my travel plans for NYE I was looking at paying $400-600 at the "casino/strip" hotels. I work for a hotel -I'm not paying those...

Oh, good lord what a dump!!! Not only is it as far away from the middle of town as you can get, but it is in need of some serious upkeep. When we walked into the lobby, it stank of stale humid urine, so bad that I had to leave and go outside and let my husband sign in, then...

I realized the day of our weekend trip to tahoe that i had forgotten to book a room! so i jumped on motel 6 website knowing they'd most likely have a room last minute. Now, i'm nobodys fool, i know not to have high expectations but, wow. the people in the room next to us were smoking weed the whole...

this happens to be one of the worst hotels that i have ever stayed at. the MOMENT i walked into the hotel room, i could see countless things wrong with this room and hotel. The bed comforters are ugly as hell, they look like they would be for a little child's bed. The room smelled like nasty old people. We...

Neat place, usually you get a good deal; very close to the moutains and ski resorts; Denny's is close by and we got a discount coupon. Stayed with friends - a nice/comfy stay for the price! High speed internet available - though you need to pay a minimal amount

We stayed at Motel 6 for one night over MLK weekend while in Tahoe to ski. The room was clean which is my primary concern when staying at this type of hotel. As other reviewers have stated, the walls were fairly thin and you could hear traffic noise, but not enough to be deal breakers. The shower had hot water...

Having discovered the special weekly price, I headed to a place I hoped would offer me time away from work, my needy family, and from day-to-day demands. Little did I expect that I would find not only the respite I needed--at an extremely affordable price--but there were discounts on nearby restaurants, a helpful, supportive staff, and attention to every detail...

I've stayed in several Motel 6s in California and this is the best I've experienced. I've stayed a few times at this one over the last 10 years (summer/fall seasons). I find it very affordable (for my mid-week mid-June stay it was $33/night + $6 in taxes, one person, that includes a discount for making the reservation online). This is...

Very clean property. Not at a congested location, it seemed like an equal distance between the casinos and must-see Emerald Bay. This Motel 6 is across the street from a grocery store and about a mile or so from the airport. The mattress was firm. Noise was not a problem. Good value!

Reviewed 10 October 2010

During my earlier travels to the USA about 10 years ago I stayed often at Motel 6s and was convinced about their price performance ratio. Now either the standard is lowered or this particular one was a bad example. The bed sheets were not clean and the whole impression was that this motel needs refurbishing. Also there was noise all...
