Yeah...that's right COCKROACHES on the walls on the pillows on the floor. We were too tired coming back from Vegas and decided to stop ....we should have just kept driving. The worst Motel 6 we have every stayed in. We will never stay at another Motel 6 again....

Good Customer service. Very basic and laid back. Had to switch rooms twice in my stay.. Unpleasant but not horrible. Anythingvi asked for the staff helped with. No free Wii fi but close to Shopping and I would most likely stay again

We were stuck in the severe mudslide event this past weekend along with several thousand others. We desperately were trying to find a room for the night, and there was nothing available close to us as everyone was in the same position as us. We were able to find something at this Motel 6 about 45 minutes from where we... More

We stayed 3 days and were very well taken care of. Our great experience began at the check in counter where we were offered the choice of rooms in different areas of the motel and upstairs or down stairs. Being able to park right outside our room was very convenient. The room was clean and fresh and the bed was... More

I stayed one night at the Bakersfield South motel. It was clean and the shower had hot water. However, that's the best I can say about it. It was the typical Motel 6 from 25 or more years ago. No renovations or updates so it was small, cramped, and shabby looking. The sheets and bedspread had holes made from cigarette... More

Don't stay here. The WORST Motel 6 we have ever stayed at. We had room #137 after a long day of driving. Intoxicated lady came in after me and was asking me questions as I was checking in. She had $30 and needed more money. They put me in #137. The person above us walked all night and at 3... More

Location was good with easy access from 99 but since it is a set-back location you must look carefully for the entrance sign. The room was clean and the staff was courteous. One ice machine for a motel this size is insufficient, should be two, even as a backup plan. Yes, the one is broken. The nearby restaurant is from... More

Absolutely the worst hotel in the national chain. DO NOT STAY HERE. Crackville Motel . Staff is rude and doesn't care about your stay. THE WORST. They need to not be a part of the Motel 6 chain.

“I can find nothing good to say about this motel, oh wait yes there is, its behind a McDonalds, so I drove, (rather than walk) over to the drive thru for a quick breakfast. All the crappy things, This motel was filled with workers that leave at 5 am, a van full was next to our room :( there was at least 3 Sirens blarring thru traffic before 9 am. We saw a security guard walking the grounds when we carried in All our belongings from the car. My Tip Don't Stay here!!”
