Just off the main highway, this Motel 6 has an excellent location. I read other reviews noting how it's located in an industrial area. Whoever wrote that has, to me, the emu correct definition of industrial area. Very close by are restaurants, convenience stores, and shops. I loved the location. The front desk staff we're super friendly. The room excellent....

Our stay was decent for the price. Our check in process was pleasant. We were able to check in on hour early because we had a reservation. The staff was very friendly.The pool was clean and enjoyable. The room was clean. The two things that bothered me was the bad smell surrounding the hotel and the shady men that were...

Front staff were friendly, Room was clean however the pillows were flat. The noise from the ice machine was constant, not of it running but of people getting ice and filling coolers at all hours of the night. How much ice do you need at 4:30 am?? If you choose to stay here and your room is anywhere near an...

This not a Ritz Carlton or Four Seasons,. It's not a Sheraton, Marriott, Westin, Hilton. It is a basic, no frills accommodation. The rooms are kept very clean. The ice machines worked. It's got an outdoor pool. The front desk girls were friendly and helpful and cheerful. The area around the hotel has lots of Asian businesses, so good cheap...

This motel was terrible. There must have been a water leak at some time because the mold smell was very strong. The air conditioner did not run well. The toilet was barely attached to the floor. Lots of outside noise and the walls were so thin that the person next door sneezing sounded like they were right in the room.

I was attending a four day event and only stay here for two nights because all the other hotels closer to the convention center were booked. After I checked in & opened the room I was assigned too, epic smoke attack! It was worse than a smoke filled casino and the room being small didn't help. Or the fact that...

When I called to book a block of rooms, I was told it was under new management and completely renovated. Got to location and was told "not all rooms are cometely redone". Showers look neat but small and water gets everywhere. Requeated fridge and micro, none avail. Front desk gave us rags. Long story short, we recieved excuses rather than...

We only stayed at this location for one night, but it was uncomfortable, and I do not recommend staying here, especially with the rates they charge. We chose to stay there because of their pet friendly policies and the fact that they have renovated their rooms. While the floors and counters appeared to be new, the room still had a...

Motel6 ain't the best place to choose but Motel6 at San Jose South is definitely to be avoided. Totally overpriced for what you get. Tiny and I mean tiny pool Breakfast room so small often nowhere to sit down. Breakfast food very limited Service not great either, not welcoming at the front desk
