Front desk service is a joke. They’ve completely let the place go to crap. I’ve been a frequent hotel guest with no issues ever, and out of nowhere they tell me I am on do not rent list for some bs story about smoking in non smoking room. First of all I don’t even smoke so it’s just bull. Place used to be somewhat decent now it’s just the same as every other low end motel in El Cajon. Pretty close to being like the valley motel. Gross

This is a budget motel whose rooms appear to be filled with transients, newly released criminals and substance abusers. It is situated in an area where there are a lot of multiple family units and a large homeless population. Although they have 24-hour security, loud fights in the middle of the night are common. As far as maid service--forget about it. They use Covid as an excuse to not clean rooms or provide service. If you stay multiple nights, plan on changing your own bedding, cleaning your own toilets and begging staff for clean towels--or even an extra towel. If you want to stay one night and save a few bucks, this might be an option. Otherwise, find another hotel.

The room is very nice and clean and the stay was great and looking forward to come back.

Rooms are always so so. Security is kinda ridiculous sometimes getting in and out of place. There’s only about two front desk people that actually seem to know what there doing half the time and actually want to do their job. All other ones are just plain rude and make you feel like your being a bother to there lives.

Motel was clean. My only compliment is that the rooms don't have refrigerators in them. This is a standard feature that most motels have. I'm diabetic and I need to keep my insulin cold. One of the ice machines was out of order and the other one did not give out very much ice.

The rooms looked cleaned but under bed the floor was filthy .

The one lady that works the front is the rudest employee I have ever came across. She must of had a bad day or started her period the day she suspended me for supposed check out late fee not being paid when I wasn’t check out late and i was actually coming back in to pay another night. She had nothing to say to me and kept her head down. I’ve emailed corporate and still nothing back from them. I’m highly disappointed about this place and it kinda screwed me her being in such a bad mood one day. Motel 6 had to be the most convenient I’ll give them that

Rooms are barely cleaned. Staff is rude. Only reason I stay here is cause it's cheap and they don't take deposit.

Had to be at dcoetors all day because of the things

I got bite up and had allergic reaction by bed bugs

Room was ok. Clean bathroom but boy where do I start about the experience. We had to wait at the reception for quite a while to get our keys as there was some technical problem with our reservation. After that we couldn’t even sleep fir a minute as there was some verbal fights going on right outside our room. As we were trying to get some sleep, security knocked at our door at 3 am asking if we were the people who were fighting. Just horrible horrible horrible
