If you are going to just sleep and not go outside at night. You should be good. I went out and saw drug deals, Guy approached me high on Meth! The guy next door left 10 times after midnight so I assume he was a drug dealer. Slamming his door every time he left his room. Ridiculous. I think that's...

We stayed in this hotel after arriving at midnight from San Jose Airport. It is a good location. Only $10 uber ride away. There is a couple fast food outlets around but best of all the light rail is right across the street. The room was clean but very basic, no hair dryer, fridge or anything.

I stayed at this motel 6 during a flight layover at san jose airport. The room was clean,modern and spotless. The shower worked excellent and the bathroom was clean. The bed and pillows was very comfortable. I watched tv in the room and the tv worked well and recieved many many channels. Who cares that motel 6 doesnt provide shampoo....

Even though despite this visit was before the Memorial Day weekend (which the prices are to be expectedly high), the price is still not affordable for a Motel 6. The room is decent and small, though, but the water tasted really badly. The sleep quality was decent as well. The owner originally said that the motel was booked up. Yet,...

Last year and the years before I only had to pay around $600-650usd for a room with 2 adults. I paid nearly $900 this year for the same amount of guests and length of stay. Literally the only pros this year were that the room was actually clean when we checked in and the location, since it's near the lightrail...

The motel is located between North First Street and Highway 101, on Brokaw Road. The VTA light rail trains run down the middle of N. First Street. The rooms have been nicely remodeled. Comfortable bed, good-sized flat-screen TV, desk area. Electrical outlets raised on the walls near the bed and the desk. Bathroom area good for one or two travelers...

Well, I'm not sure what to say so I'll stick to the facts, it's clean, check in was straight forward and the staff pleasant. Water was warm and shower good. Air con works. The not so good bits; noisy, tiny, towels were no bigger than hand towels for a shower, was a bit scary, some shady characters hanging about (although...

Please if you are going to charge $125 for a room at least offer Wi-Fi and Shampoo. Room was clean but stingy on everything else. Sheets on bed very used and far from soft. Noisy location. Lots of loitering when we checked in. Didn't feel safe. Front desk friendly and accommodating.

I was surprised the hotel is walking distance from the airport and next door is a dennys restaurant and a short walk to the train station. Absolutely perfect location with cleansers rooms. The front desk has great customer service with arranging a cab and wake up call. The hotel was not what I expected from a budget hotel. Thank you

Motel 6 is probably one of those places you don't want to end up sleeping, but an urgent late notice trip, a convention in the area that made hotel prices rise and you are ready to accept a motel 6 stay as a better alternative to sleeping under the bridge... My stay started off on a bad note, upon arrival...
