Had a 1 night stay in Motel 6 Salinas South which is a huge complex of many similar buildings. No wonder that when checking in you will get a map to find your building and room. This Motel 6 has been recently renovated and the new look was fresh. The room had new vinyl floors (a big plus!), new paint... More

Probably the best Motel 6 that I have stayed at. Recently remodeled. New wood floors, new paint and even better brand new mattresses, new pillows, and bedding. I make it a habit to always check for bedbugs. Everything checked out great. They have a large area for 18-wheelers. The pool was nice, but the outside temperature was a little to... More

I went there with my brother to stay for 3 nights. The Bath tub was blocked and water was barely dripping from the shower. It took me about 40 minutes to take shower. The next morning I went to report about it and the lady in the front said she would take care of it. We came back in the... More

I've stayed at this Motel 2 times, and both times something weird has happened. They have a 10 o clock curfew and make a loud announcement about having only registered guests allowed on the property, which i understand. But when im unloading my car and get harassed three times by three different people asking if im a registered guest. After... More

Starting to charge for wifi. Told us heater in room did not work. No shampoo or conditioner. Bed was clean and room nice and quiet. Weird they wanted both of us to show our IDs. Made us feel like criminals. Overall we would not go back. Hope other Motel 6 places don't follow do the same.

Front desk insisted on a government issued ID. I provided several and was told that they needed one with my address on them. So after giving him my CDL he offered me the "commercial discount". I was distracted by the 3 security cameras over his head. On my way to the room there were several residents sunning themselves on the... More

No breakfast at all, only a 10% off at Dennys resturaunt. 2. No coffee maker in room. (Coffee provided at main enterance however) 3. WiFi was a $3 charge. (Give me... More
