The price was too much for a tiny room that smelled like weed.& it was a supposedly non smoking room. I could not stand the smell of weed. Other then that the stay was alright..

The rooms were extremely plain and boring. The Beds were not the worst, however the covers for the bed were quite terrible. The comforter was anything but a really poor quality fleece that was worn out and had holes in it. Easy in and out, plenty of parking and a friendly staff. It was a cheap hotel option, and we’ll, you get what you pay for.

The one thing I asked for was a nonsmoking room and we couldn’t even get that. The cigarette smoke was just covered by cologne. One of my guest even got allergic because of how strong the smell was. Location is okay. Night doesn’t feel too safe.

Great location and easy access to freeway. Local restaurant

its akways been a nice hotel to stay and close to Six flags at a reasonable price

Staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was generic, yet comfortable. Good deal for the price when using Orbitz discount.

We chose this location for its convenience to the freeway and it is close to Six Flags.

Just ok for one night, not for longer stay. Room was clean, but you would hear everything that your neighbors do

I read the Yelp reviews before staying here and decided to chance it anyway. First of all, the mention of security and needing ID at all times. I can see that this is for the safety of hotel guests and their vehicles. If you're not a customer, why should you be able to roam the parking lot freely. They have 24 hour security on the premises which honestly made me feel more comfortable. I don't mind harassment when I know it's for my own safety and will prevent certain elements from entering the property. Bed Bugs - I didn't have any issues with bed bugs whatsoever. Not a itch, not a bump, not a thing. This was probably my biggest fear with the recent epidemic of a bug I never knew was real until about 4 years ago. I thought bed bugs were like Santa and the Easter Bunny - something we had child hood sayings about but weren't real. Goodnight, don't let the bedbugs bite...we said that for years without ever thinking their was a such thing as a bed bug. Well, none at that motel in room 169 from what I experienced. Hotel Staff was pleasant but the security was security. It's not their job to be nice and I liked that. It was located near food and gas and the freeway so as far as I'm concerned, I got my money's worth and no bad experiences whatsoever.

It’s what I expected, and was fine for what I needed which was to spend 8 hours at night to sleep. It worked, staff was friendly theres a guard 24 hours.

The place was nice enough but my bed had a strong smell of soap.. strong enough that I couldn't sleep. I moved to the other bed and I felt like I had things crawling on me so I ended up sleeping in the soapy bed :[

Everything fine but they need to put a microwave in the room !

terrible service, terrible service, terrible service,

The Worst Experience. -Lack of Customer Service -Room Was Dirty -Charged extra for family visiting

We Travel half of the year for our buisness. Our first stay with Motel 6 was an awful experience. Giving time had passed and trying out again nothing has changed. From the interrogation when entering property, lack of Customer Service to being issued a room with no TV -being given a credit and then not honoring as promised "Because change in Management" just disrespectful all around. It's very disappointing because we strive to always put our clients first and Motel 6 being such a huge chain I would think they would at least have some understanding on how to treat people.

Hair was on towels on both beds even the room looked clean when you look close its not cleaned properly because of that we had horrible night of sleep

Get what you pay for, not plush but clean, functional, and quiet ( I liked onsite security; felt extremely safe.)

Arriving I was surprised to see a security guard at the entrance of the parking. Asking who we were, etc. I mentioned I was dropping off the guest who was checking in, and the ghetto guard quickly said, 'uber/lyft'? I asked what are you talking about? He asked if I was uber/lyft, driver. Now I'm dressed in a suit, in a car certainly not uber or lyft would typically drive, I said no, I'm not uber/lyft, he then asked who I was? I said, I'm dropping off of a guest, that's all you need to know. Finally the security let us through and my ex checked in. I thought checking in was bad enough, checking out, was even worse. I won't even mention the 3rd degree interrogation I went through every time I visited either. Checking out, the security asked me if I was uber / lyft again when I said I was there to pick up a guest who was checking out. The guard asked me to park next to the entrance of the parking and the guest should meet me here. Now the guest room is a good 100 yards away, my ex is disabled, has a service dog and luggage. Yet this security guard expects a disabled person to come down the 2nd floor, with his luggage, service dog and meet me. Something serious went down this place, a drug deal, a some kind of really bad crime, I don't know, but I've never known a Motel 6 to have more security than a bank. Never will I use this place again. Not all Motel 6s, just this one in particular.

air condition were out when we checked. open the window, too noisy, bad experience.
