I've never stayed at a Motel 6 before and after booking a room at the San Marcos Motel 6, I never will again. My experience started out with walking into the "lobby" (vending area) and there were several vagrants sitting at a table asleep. The hotel clerk was nice enough, but once I got to my room I was appalled....

Needed an inexpensive place to sleep during $X$W in Austin a few miles north. Small room but it did the job. Beds were OK, nothing spectacular. Small 1/2 round table with 2 chairs below TV, which had all sorts of electronic plug-in things that I didn't need or use, but I'm guessing the younger crowd would be happy with those....

I have stayed at a couple of Motel 6's around the country and this one was by far the worst! It had the STRONGEST bleach smell that I have ever smelled and it NEVER went away. It has NO refrigerator and BOTH of the ice machines had NO ice. They had ONE large towel for two adults.

I booked a double non-smoking room for myself and family. When we checked in the lobby smelled like sweat and cigarettes. We were given our room key, we went into the room it smelled musty and like cigarettes. The comforters were dirty or very stained if washed at all. We pulled the blankets back and the sheets were covered in...

We stayed two nights and there are no daily maid service due to a "cost reduction" policy as the receptionist said. It's a Pet friendly Hotel with too many cats around with no maid service ? Bad Idea! The rest of our stay was almost on my minimums!

Stayed one night. Room recently redone with the 'wood' floor. Everything worked. room clean with no smell in non smoking room. Decent quality motel six. As always, bring your own alarm clock. Flat screen TV on wall. Had to travel to find good restaurant a few miles down the interstate. IHOP and McD one exit away.

This 6 had been renovated and was very nice. It was a large room and the beds were very comfortable. It is easy access to the major highways. The front staff was very welcoming. It was very quiet even with the highway right out front. The things you miss with no hair dryer, clock, frig or microwave were ok because...
