In choosing Motel 6, we watched the video and the motel appeared to offer a good balance of value and amenities while being in close proximity to San Francisco.
From the moment you enter the security checkpoint at the entrance of the motel and once you check in with the staff who stand behind two inches of bullet resistant glass, anyone with a clue will realize that they have issues with crime. After watching the pedestrian and vehicle traffic for a period of time in the immediate area, it is apparent that the staff does not decline service to prostitutes w/ their protection (pimps) and drug dealers.
During the evening they had a minimum of two security personnel walking the grounds and the traffic (people not residing there) was constant throughout the night. While the affordable rates are the draw, once your there, you'll realize that Corporate hasn't paid attention to what occurs there or doesn't care as long as the money keeps coming in.
The area appears to have fallen on hard times and the motels adjacent to Motel 6 appear to have suffered the same fate. Restauraunts are limited in the immediate and personal safety is an issue if your not aware of your surroundings.
If you can afford better accomodations, do so.
