great price clean rooms

Close to the freeway, clean, looks like it was recently updated. Beds were comfortable. Plasma tv. Laundry room and pool. Close to legoland and beach. Only complaint is that the towels were rough.

Better off sleeping in your car

Just awful experience. The room smell was ridiculous. Might as well sleep at a gas station's bathroom. There were big stains on the sheets! The room was not cleaned the next day until 6pm! The staff were way over their heads. I wish I just slept in my car. Don't waste your money here.

Does the job

If you are looking for affordable and convenient this motel does the job. I would have loved to stay during the warm months to take advantage of what appeared to be a nice pool. The rooms were average, but on par with the price. There was a mixup with the wifi, website stating that it was included when there is really a charge. However, they acknowledged the confusion & comped the fee which was very appreciated.

Great Stay for Price - Beautiful Location

The room was clean and well taken care of. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is great! You are a 5 minute walk to the beach and a ten minute drive to LegoLand. I would recommend this Motel 6 to any one who wants a great location and is on a budget. The price was amazing for what we received.

Location is very good

This is very close to Legoland. We got three rooms and after a fun and tiring day at Legoland we just want to go back to our room and relax. It was 7:30pm and one of our rooms was not even made/cleaned. So, my brother and sister in-law ended up sleeping on unmade beds. The rooms are okay but I suggest that after cleaning it should be sprayed with air freshner. I went to the store to buy an air freshner, because we couldn't stand the smell of the rooms. The bathroom doors don't have any locks at all. This is very incovenient for us to put a blocker on the door to make sure nobody opens it while you're doing your thing. Ice machine always runs out of ice. They have 2 but only one working. Considering that they don't have refrigerator, these ice machines shld be in full force. Well overall it is a 2 star for me.

Good for the price.

Located right off the freeway, couple of blocks from the beach. Room was a bit small for one adult and two kids but we managed. Not enough tv/cable channels to chose from. Pool was ok, kids loved it. Beds were good.
