I travel with a 100 pound dog, so I often visit Red Roof and Motel 6 due to their generous pet policy. I originally had a reservation at the Motel 6 in Arcata, CA. However, when I arrived, the location was full of zombie looking drug addicts, and the area was rather loud and noisy. I decided that the location...

We were looking for a place to stay to rest after a long drive from OR to SF. Tried most places in Eureka which were full, the motel 6 had a few rooms left which should've given us pause enough. The service was the ONLY good thing about this place. Nothing special, but he was at least pleasant and in...

We are on vacation on motorcycles and since the guys wanted to have a few drinks we opted for the cheap hotel by the diner where we could get dinner and beer. The gentleman at the front counter was extremely polite and very helpful!!! Also note that this used to be a run down area so when you arrive ALL...

My wife, son and I were on our way back to Portland from San Francisco. We stop at this Motel 6 thinking that it was a great location for the night. Knowing that Motel 6 has a bad reputation for a lot bad motels we kinda knew what we were getting into here. Being tired and 8pm we had to...

Sometimes we stay in Motel 6s to reward them for being pet friendly and to avoid having to confirm same in advance. This one was a mistake. I was ready to leave on entering the lobby - but we were tired and persevered. Yuk. We are not picky people, but this one is an embarrassment for Tom Bodett and the...

We got an okey room but long hairs on walls in shower and a pubic hair on toilet seat. I mentioned this to manager on day of check out and she gave me a full refund, which I did not expect, it was a pleasant surprise and I would go back since this showed me there is a standard.

I travel to Eureka once a month and usually stay at this Motel 6, as I travel with my dog. This Motel 6 is a bit dated, but much less then the other Motels in town. Before I started staying here I use to stay at the Quality inn. For about $30 more a night, and all I got was...

Why do I feel like a criminal here? Is it the absence of drawers? The open shelves in soulless pale Formica hide nothing except a certain cheap particle board cabinetry...solid enough, and clean, but dodgy somehow.  This is an appropriate analogy for this establishment, and perhaps this chain in general.  Ticks the basic boxes but hides a core of deception...
