I stayed at this motel 6 for over a month along with my company after staying at the other motel 6 in fresno. The little extra we paid was worth every penny.

Everything was very clean and fresh. It had very comfortable and relaxing feel whenni first stepped in the door. The front office woman, Gladys, was very nice and helpful in every way and ALWAYS had a smile. The Locations perfect and close to everything I needed. Definitely going to be a place I come back to for sure. Thank you!

As far as I am concerned the good thing about Motel 6 is you typically know what you're in for - a room that is relatively pleasant, clean, and fairly well maintained - with the added bonus of being incredibly pet friendly. I stayed at this particular Fresno area Motel 6 a couple years ago and found it to be...

I stayed at this hotel the night of September 27th 2014. Around 7:30PM I checked in and was given a room on the backside of the building opposite the front desk. I parked and started to walk around the back of the building with my luggage. When I got to the back there was not a single light on. I...

I took Highway 99 south as an alternative view to the more touristy Interstate 5, also hoping to find cheaper motels as I travel with a very small budget. Hotel 6 was the right place to stop. Incredibly friendly staff. Jaterica, the receptionist, patiently listened to my French accent and gave me a discount on a room at the very...

Upon checking in, they told me I would be getting a room facing the freeway. I wasn't too happy about that but okay. Right when we entered, we noticed that room wasn't even prepared! The bedsheets were messy as if someone had just waken up and the room look occupied. We were scared someone might've still been in there so...

The front desk service was fine as far as politeness and efficiency. The sidewalks had trash in many places and the exterior garbage cans were not emptied or the loose trash picked up during my three days there. The towels smelled like mold even thought they were "clean". The pillows were flat and useless. The carpet was filthy. I was...

The room was most definitely not worth the $70 I spent for the night. Granted, I did not expect 5-star accommodations but there were a number of blatant issues: 1) the shared headboard was detached from the wall and part of it was hanging down, 2) both sets of lights above the beds did not work, 3) there were large...
