Motel 6 is a simple chain, and one should not experct too much. Having said that, Big Bear Motel 6 is among the better ones. With two doublr bads, a very clean room and very friendly service (Hi Allen!) we had all we needed. A bonus was the good recommendation to the best local restaurant.

This was our first experience with Motel 6 in Big Bear. We stayed on a Saturday night in September trying to escape the heat from SoCal. We checked in, easily, and headed to the room. This particular room did have a slight cigarette smell, although it was a non-smoking room. I called the office to see if we could switch... More

It's been a long time since I've stayed in a Motel 6 after having many lackluster experiences. I have to say that this last minute booking has warmed me back up to the chain. The price was reasonable, the customer service at the front desk was warm, inviting, and friendly, and the room was great. The room was clean, comfortable,... More

A bit cleaner than your average motel 6, clean and reasonably comfortable. No in room amenities. You get what you pay for. Pool was covered and not available even though it was summer. Not close to much for walking distance. Overall not bad for this chain

Had to book two rooms for some guests at 10pm on a Tuesday night. Glad M6 was open late. My guests called me at 7am the next morning stating ants were crawling on them and in their bed all night and the air conditioner did not work all night with 75 degree night temps. That was just the beginning of... More

I got one of the remodeled rooms. It is nice and modern. The price was great and the front desk and cleaning people were all very nice and helpful. There is no air conditioning in the rooms so I had to leave my window open to stay cool and that made my room kind of noisy. Not an issue if... More

Customer service delightful. People were courteous. Room i small but we only spent one night. It was clean and heater was quiet. We liked it very much. I was located right next to the snow slop and we enjoyed going there! We shall return! Leave the light on.
