Our only option left within a reasonable price range (not that it was reasonable considering the following)... we figured it wouldn't be great after seeing the ratings however thought it can't be that bad... After having to park on the other side of the building and walk through, let's say slightly intimidating groups of men drinking and smoking weed outside...

We went on the fly to Ventura with out of town friends and needed a last minute hotel. We went with this hotel because it was literally one of the last options we had. The hotel itself is -yes a cheap motel 6, thankfully some what upgraded. It was clean, BUT the bedding did have stains. We all slept with...

We attempted to stay here for the night but that was a no go! We checked in and all they had downstairs was a smoking room. Mind you when I called they never said it was a smoking room and I'm highly asthmatic. Before we got into the room the ppl next to us you could smell a bad stench...

With some work being done on my home, I had to vacate for three days. This particular Motel 6 was the closest, least expensive hotel near me. The room and grounds were neat and clean, and there were a lot of channels on the TV (there's also a smallish swimming pool), and I was just looking for a place to...

Since I normally check reviews before coming to any hotel, my reviews that are negative are minimal. In this case I must give a lower rating to this hotel, even though it is a Motel 6, and I had lower standards and expectations for this night. This hotel was below any standards that I would set for even a Motel...

Motel 6 has a known reputation for being kind of cheap & dirty . Well I'm here to clear that up after booking with them to stay here on my prom night I was very impressed. All the descent even fancier hotels in my surrounding area were all booked due to the Strawberry festival. So this was my last choice...

The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. My issue is with the condition of the room. I even paid extra to upgrade to a larger corner room. The phone did not work, there were holes in the curtains, dead flies on the window sill, the TV kept loosing signal, cracks in the bathtub, and weird unsightly brown spots...

I will NEVER stay in this hotel again. The way we were treated was inexcusable. They kicked us out for our dogs behaving in the van not bugging anyone!! The dogs never came in the room, never made a mess and we actually cleaned up after other inconsiderate people who did not clean up after there dogs. But because we...

We were excited because this was the first place that had an ice machine and buckets... perfect for our carton of milk that had been with us since Pismo Beach! This was perfectly adequate. Clean, secure, predictable quality and reasonable service. We requested a no smoking room however when the room had clearly been used by a smoker who had...

This is really a bare bones 3 star motel. Do not expect any more than this and it is an OK place to spend the night. I had read the reviews on this and some other sights about this Motel 6 and was concerned about the homeless people in the parking lot, the towels so stiff you could use for...
