The last time we stayed here, in 2008, my review was 5-star. Unfortunately, this week's experience was very different. If I were rating only the staff, and their positive and friendly attitude toward customer service, it would be stellar. They are stand-out employees, in a very difficult industry. The negatives this time however, outweighed the positives to the extent that...

Worst experience I've ever had. Checked into room on 7/9 around 5, left and came back around 11 only to find NO PARKING space at all. Went into the office and asked what to do. The woman working basically didn't care and said it wasn't their problem. There were other people there as well and all of us looking at...

I made a solo overnight trip to Big Bear the last weekend in June. The Motel 6 was the best price I could find, so since I was alone I thought I would try it. The grounds and outer buildings are about what you would expect from a budget motel. However when I entered the room, it appeared to have...

They will leave the light on for ya...out side the room so bright you could read just not good for sleeping. The a/c quit n the night and started blowing scalding hot air, so yeah that sucked. No shampoo no hair dryer or other things one expects. The room seemed clean and was comfy enough till a/c went out.

This place is a good bargain for what you pay per night. The motel is near a mexican food restaurant, but is also located right on the main road through Big Bear. We brought our dogs, as did other guests. The bathroom is difficult to move around in, due to its size, but it was clean. Walls are thin, so...

Rooms have been fully renovated for this Motel 6 location. Wood flooring, updated bathrooms, new paint, and flat screen TV made our stay more enjoyable. And its cleaner now. No signs of ants and or cockroaches. And still the cheapest in town. What i like with Motel 6 is their reservation policy. You dont need to pay in advance. You...

I recently stayed at this Motel 6 on a trip to the area. The motel had easy access to both Highways, was quite, comfortable, allowed pets for no additional charge, and was a great price to stay. The room was small, but was packed with amenities and had enough room for me to pop up a dog kennel inside. Lots...

I spent 2 nights here, my expectation that on the plan as "Just for leave the luggage, sleep and shower" easy and quick check-in/out. Conn: Free coffee only have on 6-10am, no free wifi and paid wifi quality is not good. bad mobile signal area. if you are mobile/social aholic. i'm not recommend.
