Motel 6 staff is not very accommodating to the regular guests.
I am in a 2 bed and needing to get a 1 bed today. I have a reservation as well. I also need to to go to work at 1230. I ask if I can move to the 1 bed. None available yet. And I get that and understand I have to wait.

"Go to another hotel!"
"shop for the best rate, i got a better one online than in the lobby :)"
"Bottom floor near lobby since pool, ice and vending are there."
"I booked directly through the motel 6 website and got cheaper rates than the different travel websites offered. The different types of rooms were listed."
"DO NOT stay if your have relatives or friends that have to check in after midnight. Also call first make sure they have not sold your guaranteed room. Seems the age limit is a MOTEL Policy not the Corporate Policy nor the City of El Cajons"
