We had a sudden change of plans and. having never stayed in a motel 6, thought it would be a cheap option for the night....How wrong we were, having a room at the 'back' of the motel we pulled around to find the three car parks in front of our room filled with some sort of 'gangsters' laying over the...

Stayed at Motel 6 two weeks ago for a work trip. It was during Automotive Week, so everything else was booked or way too expensive. Located in an industrial area off the freeway, the only good thing about it was the proximity to nearby Monterey (which was still 30 minutes away). Staff was INCOMPETENT. Could not figure out how to...

Its in the middle of an industrial area along with a few other cheap chain motels. Its very dated but also very cheap, we stayed here during a busy weekend in Monterey (there was a luxury car festival or something) and the room was still much cheaper than similar type places in Monterey or Carmel. Its a half hour drive...

For the area close to san francisco (monterey, carmel, salinas), this stretch of motels is the only cheap place to sleep, and this was, perhaps the cheapest of them all, which should have made us a bit suspicious. The rooms were reaaaally basic, and had not been cleaned (I wont share what I found under the bed, but we left...

We reported there was water on one of the beds and on carpet almost half of the room, we got charged the same after I was told I would get reimbursed for one night but manager did not honor their promise. Who the heck wants to be charged for so unpleasant experience?? There was no more rooms available.. :((

Just like another guest wrote in his review, we spent one night there back in July of 2012. No A/C, but it was a cool evening and the circulation fan did work. Now we stayed two nights earlier this month of April 2013. With two beads, non-smoking we were in the same block of rooms. Same thing no A/C, maintenance...

We were intending to stay at the Best Western but was full as it was a holiday weekend - then tried Quality Inn across the road who tried to charge us $189.99!!!!!! And admitted it was profiteering. Went next door to Motel 6 - normal rates, courteous desk staff - clean basic room - everything worked - absolutely no complaints.

Woke up Saturday morning July 30th with about 12 bites on my face, left hand and arm. I advised the front desk that evening that I had woken up with the bites, the next day they changed the bedding. We stayed a total of 3 nights and every day more bites showed up. After we got home on Monday, I...

Stayed here in July 2012 for a night while visiting Monterey and Salinas. The Motel 6 was nothing more than expected: a convenient but inexpensive place to sleep for the night. The front desk had a worn and tattered sign taped to it noting that the air conditioning was broken. Indeed, the A/C in the room did not appear to...

Stopped here after flying in to San Fran on the way to LA. Quick, easy, no frills. Everything as as you expect at a Motel 6. Website claims this location was refreshed but I didn't noticed. Choosed this location because it's the closest to Pinnacles National Monument,
