Staff is friendly and readily available. Good location, great price. Plenty of free parking. Bath curtain doesnt hold water inside, had to put towels on the floor due to water leaking through the bath curtain.

N/A. Very nice place and employees. Enjoyed my stay here.

This place was ok. My room was on the second floor and in the back corner which was actually great. The property is well lit at night and the area isn’t too bad considering the area. Not far from SDSU and a short drive to attractions and downtown. I really just needed a bed for the night and a hot shower and I’d say they delivered. The bed wasn’t bad, slept pretty good and the blackout curtains do work. There was hot water in the morning and the shower pressure was great!

A/C was a bit noisy and made squeaky noise. Other than that it was ok probably won't stay there again.

The room i had booked thru the internet and when i arrived to check in apparently the computers were down but that wasnt explained until i had been standing at the night window for 35 min while the customer ahead of me was checked in. So after that i was finally told the computers were down and the telephones too and was never checked in to a room! I just hope they plan on refunding me the room charges

This property was located in a bad area. The room was clean but smelled. The guest staying here were sketchy. People were walking around the premises, doors slamming, and car alarms going off all night.

Staff availability was good. Requested repair was never done. Went entire time with no place to hang cloths.

Clean and efficient for the price! I would recommend and stay here again... nothing fancy but gets the job done.

It was very much a get what you paid for in California scenario. The rooms were not very nice, the beds uncomfortable, no shampoo, no comforter, no breakfast. To their credit, they did provide shampoo and comforter when requested. It was fine for a couple of nights, but if you are very particular you would not enjoy the stay. If you’re a low cost traveler, then it is fine.

Just here for a few hours, staff are nice, room is big and clean

The staff here is amazing and I am very happy with my stay. My only complaint is that I keep seeing coupons on Orbitz but I don't seem to be getting them or saving and I have had to extend my stay a number of times because I am waiting for my studio to be completed so I can move there. I would really appreciate some discounts!! Thanks.

Drive two to check in to this hotel just to be told that if I still wanted to stay because they are having a power outage that evening. Asked to be accommodated at another location of theirs and honor our same price nope they wouldn't. Had to cancel that reservation and wasted 2 more hours searching for another hotel. Thankfully Holiday Inn had a great room with great customer service to save the day. Never again booking a motel 6 again lesson learned

Nice room and location, however I stayed on the first floor and all the noise from the room above were heard

I don't think I'd want to come back to this hotel for the following reasons. 1. They asked for a $60 cash deposit. Even though I had booked with a debit card. Luckily I happened to have cash on me, but this is very inconvenient. I've never been to a hotel that does that. 2. Upon check out they go and check the room and then give your cash deposit back. Again, this is super inconvenient especially when you have places to be in the morning. And have never been to a hotel that does this. 3. It was a little chilly so I turned on the heater. Woke up to a wet floor, turns out the unit had leaked water throughout the night and it was a lot. My shoes ended up getting Wet. 4. The towels have stains on them, along with previous users hairs, Gross. They also very rough and thin. 5. My bed only had a sheet, I was cold all night. I understand it's not winter time, but a solid blanket could have been nice. 6. They use that old school machine to make a copy of your card, im not sure that I like that for indentity theft reasons or fraud. Makes it much more accessible to people. Now, to the few good points 1. It's in a convenient area. A lot around it. 2. The outside looks a lil run down, but the rooms are decent. 3. The TV had more channels than most hotels. Oh, they are also very adamant about smoking on the property. You can't smoke anywhere except in between the two handicap parking spots.

The floor is not clean, the bedding is extremely dusty, the bath towels still have hairs and huge stains on it. Way too nasty!

Well i checked in at 1 am, at 4 am i had a guest... I called the front desk to ask uf i needed to pay an additional guest fee. I was told no. I requested late check out, there was none. The staff never smiled. When i checked out, the rude owner of this franchise told me they were keeping my $50 deposit without even checking out the room. They wouldn't even give a reason or an accounting of why. Horrible place

It was convenient, clean. The rooms were very spacious.
