You pay for what you get - dirt cheap and everything feels dirty. Try to get a room on the south side, closer to Mission Ave. Unfortuately my room was on the north side of the building, and there were a lot of shady looking characters around...someone tried to "sell used electronics" to me on my way to my room. When I parked, there was a pile of vomit in the parking space next to me. No one was at the front desk when I tried to check in... in the rain. Waited for almost 15 minutes and I think there was only one employee on shift. My wake up call was the Escondido police arresting someone right outside my door, and my lullaby was two intoxicated people (who were asked to leave, and didn't) right outside my door for the majority of the night... Lastly, pretty sure there is ZERO room service/cleaning done in between nights. There are many other options in Escondido, and they are all probably better than this. Don't punish yourself by staying here

HORRIBLE. And then desk staff evaded phone calls and attempts to get a full refund. Unbiased review. This place was a nightmare and we literally ran after less than an hour there. DON'T take the chance because it will be just unbelievably awful. I can't believe they are holding on to our funds and ignoring us! Drugs; crack heads; worse. Don't look at anyone the wrong way and maintenance was crude. God awful choice to reserve here. Room was below standard and not safe for staying in. The immediate area was dilapidated and unfit for a general personal sense of security. 3 days later we're still on the phone with the 3rd party Site trying to get our full refund. You will be blamed not apologized to if you go though hell.

The hotel is pretty run down. They seem to be doing some renovation of rooms, so maybe things will get better. The advertisement on booking said that they had free coffee in the morning, but that was not the case due to "Covid". The place claims to have a pool - and it does, but you can't use it and it is dirty in the extreme. The place has a coin operated laundry available, but the desk won't make change so you can use it and it takes $5.00 in quarters to wash and dry a load of clothes. More if you buy their laundry detergent. I could hear the people having sex in the adjacent room. Somebody's car alarm seemed to regularly go off at night. At 4:40 pm every day the fire alarm/smoke detector would go off in a piercing noise for about a minute or two. The cleaning staff never cleaned my room during my stay, although they would exchange my towels and provide me with supplies if I needed. The landscapers cut down trees and then blew the saw dust under my door - and since the cleaning staff didn't clean the room, the floor just stayed dirty. There were a lot of homeless people hanging around on the hotel property at all times, day and night and nothing was done about it. No security guards

Needed a place to briefly stay on the way somewhere else-with a dog so options were limited. It backs up on a Lowe's parking lot. The police were there when we arrived and someone was breaking into cars in the lot -in daylight- when we were packing up to leave. There are loud people screaming all night and pooping on the sidewalks. People drinking and smoking directly (inches from) outside our door at 1AM. We are nonsmokers but the room was thick with smoke and stains. Best thing was that the general manager decided to disappear midday and our key didn't work - immediately after we brought it to the counter for help fixing it. So we were locked out for over an hour waiting for him to come back from a "break". I called the main phone number and all they did was repeatedly call the front desk, saying, "he is not there but we will send the manager an email." When the manager got back he called me an "a$$hole" and told me to "calm down." Never once apologized or anything remotely like that. Terrible. We have had better luck at other Motel 6s. This one.. STAY AWAY. Plenty of nearby other options. We promptly moved to a Best Western nearby that also takes pets.

I was propositioned by a prostitute two times when I returned from business at the end of the day. I stayed there for 3 nights. This was outside the lobby of the motel. The parking lot is filled with homeless vagrants and shopping carts and individuals under the influence of narcotics or mentally ill. Thank goodness i was alone , my wife would have been appalled and I would have left, no other hotels were available and they raised the price to 256 dollars a night for a 4 dollar a night hotel.I asked to have my room moved as a party was raging from 11 pm until I left at 8am on business.I was denied a room change as the clerk stated only smoking rooms were available and the hotel was going to fill up and this would be lost revenue (verbatim) The sheets and pillow case was filthy adorned with human hair . The sink was rusty and dripping . If you enjoy drugs, drugged out zombies and dirty needles enjoy your stay. This is the worst Motel in America.. If this revue helps one soul stay away from this abomination I have done humanity a service.
