Pay a Little More for something Better

I was literally awoken at 2:00 a.m. (as was everybody else I imagine), because the security guard or some other employee was shouting at someone in the courtyard with a bullhorn!! They were saying something like "if you don't have a room here or aren't getting one, you must leave the premises or we will call the police..." Just as soon as I was about to fall back asleep 15 minutes later, the same exact thing happened. It completely ruined my night, took me forever to get back to sleep, and I had to go to my 7 a.m. job interview extremely tired. The fact that a motel would do something like this at 2 in the morning is shocking. The more I think about it, the more it is clear that this place cares more about getting $5.00 extra for an additional person in a room than letting people sleep through the night. Even when I checked in I got a suspicious look when I said I was by myself. They make you report your license plate number and sign waivers all stating you are the only person, and they literally monitor who goes in and out of your room (very awkward and uncomfortable). I felt like I was going to be interrogated any time I stepped out of my room. God help you if you have a friend stop by to see you here. This is more of a place for tweakers to go on all night binges than it is for you to get a night's rest. The employees didn't even think twice before blasting the courtyard with a bullhorn at 2 a.m. for some petty offense...TWICE. What does that tell you? Also, NO SHAMPOO is given to you, and I had cigarette burns in my sheets. I was so close to just spending $15 more to stay at a La Quinta or Comfort Inn, but this place was only 2 blocks from my interview location and I didn't know the area. It would have been the best $15 I ever spent and worth navigating, though. I wasn't expecting a four star hotel, but for $60 I should at least be left alone with some privacy and allowed to sleep. Do Not Stay Here. Unpleasant waste of $60.

Adequate

Adequate. The wi-fi was too slow and there was no shampoo. Otherwise it was very satisfactory for a one night stay.

Not recommended for family

The hotel front desk staff were not friendly at all. I also felt that the room could have been cleaner. Seeing as how I was tired I tried to over look this. I would never come and stay at another motel 6 again. This hotel made the advertisement on the commercial on TV about Motel 6 look like a big fat lie. Cherl

A good clean room for an overnight stay.

Motel Six has always been on my list of motels to stay. They are conveniently located, are clean and not over loaded with unnecessary items. This one was located only one mile from my destination. Check in was easy and pleasant. I will stay there again if in the area. Thank you

Basic Motel 6

Was what I expected - nothing bad, nothing great. If you just need a bed, this motel will work just fine. Was clean, staff was friendly.

Friendly, Courteous

The staff was friendly and courteous. Quick to process check-in and checkout. The property overall was clean and well-maintained. The room itself was neat and clean. Albeit older (both room and property), nonetheless, the linens were fresh, with a clean bathroom and vanity, which is very important. The air quality inside the room was good. Some hotel rooms tend to be stuffy as soon as you enter. There is a small shopping plaza across the street that you can easily walk to to pick-up donuts or a quick bite to eat. The bus stop is right in front of the motel if you do not have your own transportation. It arrives in 15 minute frequencies. Overall, a nice and enjoyable stay that is affordable and will keep you within budget.

It was quiet and clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was great. The shower was a little short for my six feet tall body, but the water pressure was good. It was well worth the price

sightseeing Disneyland

It was pleasant,overall! It was fairly close to Disneyland. The staff was very helpful and the cost was reasonable. We just wanted a safe place to spend a night and the hotel met that requirement.
