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...

Good lord! It is the only time I have been truly scared to stay at a motel/hotel in my life. The parking lot was full of lowlifes/drug-dealers/drug users/homeless and flat out scary people, some just sitting in cars watching you as you enter/exit your room. The room itself had stains in the bathroom, stains on the bedspread, a sticky substance...

Stopped here for a night to see the 49ers. We paid for a basic hotel and thats what we got. You can't complain its what you pay for. The important things are... The bed was comfy. The room was clean. The room was safe. The shower was good. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only bad thing I can...

San Jose is usually sold out during the week or the rooms are outrageously over priced so I took what I could get.. Room was okay one of the remodeled Motel6's, AC definitely works. Scratchy towels but can't expects to much at a Motel6 LOL. I don't like how people watched me walk in and out of my room then...

Suppose to be non-smoking. Smelled strongly of smoke. The rooms adjacent all had non-smoking signs on the doors, but all the tenants were milling around outside smoking. Children running around and screaming and fighting. Adults yelling at each other and the children. Dogs barking from behind closed doors. UGH!!! The night was so noisy with banging upstairs and on both...

When we first pulled in to Motel 6 we were apprehensive to say the least but after we checked in and went to our room, we were pleasantly surprised. The room had been completely remodeled with hard wood floors and modern furniture. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We would stay here again for sure!

For $130 for 2 people for a night, you should at least get toiletries and towels enough for the two of you and a clean place to lay your head, right? Stained towels, toilets, and tubs, noisy pets and their odor around the small location, broken ice machines, a 2nd person surcharge (although they don't provide any amenities to begin...

Looking for designer sheets, a health club and in-room Keurig coffee makers? Then pay triple or quadruple the price and go elsewhere. However, if you are looking for no frills, good location, and $100/night, this does the trick. Room was clean. Amenities minimal (as per the reviews); wifi was adequate though limited (as per the reviews). Rooms were noisy (adjacent...
