Pros: Staff was pleasant and helpful, dog friendly, accomodated downstairs room for our large senior dog, free wifi. Now Cons: out of doggie bags the whole weekend, so the dog area was full of poo, shower had mildew, toilet dirty, beds uncomfortable, no fridge or microwave, ran out of ice, trash cart was left outside of our room, which stank and drew flies. We asked a maint. worker if it was going to be moved, he said it always stays there, but he did move it out by the dumpster during our stay. Don't expect much from Motel 6 and you won't be too disappointed.

We arrived just after midnight to find homeless people smoking marijuana in the parking lot. When we asked one if he was a guest there the Overnight Manager came running out saying "he is, he is". I decided to watch from a distance since one was hanging out by my car talking to the Overnight Manager. The other homeless person came out of the "Employee's only" door with a backpack and then they left the hotel together. My wife didn't feel safe going to the lobby with two homeless men there with intentions unknown and I didn't feel my car or it's contents were safe since they hung out near my car. The next day my wife spoke to the General Manager who said she was told by the Overnight Manager that we were harassing guests.

Shower had black hair on the floor (I have silver colored hair). Floor appeared dirty. Mentioned it to front desk...next day there was no improvement. Maid service one day was quite late--- like 3pm or so. WiFi was next to useless. I called the desk for assistance and was referred to an 800 number and then a 40 minute session that did not improve the service. Clearly a "low end" motel

Average motel 6 with no frills. Fairly quiet and clean. Interesting shaped showers, a little small. Convenient location.

I love staying here, the staff is amazing and always friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and the price is affordable! Scott Noggle is the manager and has always been professional yet down to earth at the same time. This is by far the best motel 6 you will ever stay at!

The location is fine and the rooms are standard Motel 6. As with all Motel 6's the wi-fi is an unpleasant surprise. You have to pay extra when everybody else includes it in the rate. Walls are a little thin so if you have a noisy neighbor you will experience it.

The bed spread had holes in it and was stained terribly with God knows what. The bathroom reeked urine and we only had two towels for 3 people. The staff did their best to fix the situation,but it was still not worth $100 plus tax a night.

when we walk in, frist I notice the bed cover looks grayish in some spot, which means it looks so dirty, and a lots of moldy spot in bathroom area, space of shower room is so small, only bar soap no shampoo and hair dryer. If you are light sleeper, you will have trouble sleep there, because is 3am now, I hear traffic from the freeway, and people talking from the hallway and somewhere upstairs. I can't have good rest there. I paid $112.42 for a night, this place totally not worth this price.

Sink didn't drain, faucet was plugged and the staff was incompetent. When I asked for extra clean towels, you would've thought I was asking for their left arm!

The room was somewhat noisy, curtains did not block out light. The room was very small... But it was inexpensive......

a lot of eating places, convenient transportation, quiet and safe, affordable
