We needed a place to sleep and shower. This Motel 6 fit that need. No frills or anything fancy but a clean room with comfortable bed and pillows. Excellent TV reception and a hot shower. For less than $50.00 a night we will stay here again under similar circumstances.

thought this was a new hotel, only fairly new to the Motel 6 chain. Bad part of town, but we had no problems. Bedding, window treatments and carpet were new. Furniture was old. Bathroom was the worst. Peeling ceiling and wallpaper along with a dirty looking shower (not actually dirty just really worn) and the commode was actually loose on...

Starting with the negatives - dodgy decor, no breakfast, noisy AC. But it was inexpensive, well located. And it was comfortable, had a gym and the most helpful reception staff. Absolutely fine so long as you aren't planning to spend the daytime in the hotel or the hotel bar.

The service was good, people were nice. Clean and comfortable. The motel was within walking distance to the hospital where my husband was having short stay surgery and the price was great for our budget.

We stayed at this hotel during its transition from Best Western. The computer system was not functioning properly, so check-in took much longer than normal. We were in the room for 4 nights. And as the days went by, the room got dirtier and dirtier. The only redeeming features were that the bed was comfortable and it was quiet.

I appreciate the military discount, easy access from the freeway, clean linen and towels, and lower cost so I got two rooms for my family. However, in one room only one electrical outlet works, in another room the walls had large spill stains on them, the toilet doesn't flush properly (not enough water or pressure), shower on third floor doesn't...

Its a refurbished Best Western Hotel of a couple of years ago and much better presented but in my view the service has gone hill somewhat. I know this because I've stayed in this hotel a few times when it was a Best Western. It no longer provides hot breakfast as it used to, fridges and microwaves are no longer...

Walls are disgusting, carpeting is stained, bathroom is dated but clean, linens are clean and decorations are modern and clean. I wouldn't stay here again, buy since I am only looking for a clean bed for the night it will do. The sweet girl at the front desk is the only thing that kept me here.

The hotel is an old, renovated place. Corners were cut everywhere throughout the place. No toiletries and the room service attendants were extremely rude and loud. Doors slamming, loud talking early in the morning. Worst of all the internet there is unusable. When I called the front desk to ask if there was another network to connect to, I was...
