This is my first time in Santa Ana, Ca. but i've been to other states this month as i am on a road trip with my son. I chose this Motel 6 because of the low prices during the Thanksgiving weekend and all of the other hotels were either booked or too pricey for me. Anyway, reserving the room via... More

Hotel is ok, rooms are regular and smell musty, bath room with small cockroaches, place is quiet and well located, rates are regular and good to stay just a week end, there is enough parking space but wifi is not included 3 to 5 usd per day

Check in was fast, staff was very polite. Only problem is that our door wouldn't lock. We arrived around 12am with two small kids so we didn't get much sleep. Room was clean I love motel 6 I would love it a bit more if they fixed the locks.

I stayed here in April. The room was clean but the bathroom needed repairs, the shower was rusted and they didn't provide any shampoo or soap. The hotel staff were quite friendly, even though it was a last minute check in. Overall it was OK for one night. The location is about a mile from the airport, so if you... More

Low quality and they charge for everything. I would never recommend any one. Even wifi is charged and poorly maintained hotel. It does not worth the money spent. Only positive is near to i5 freeway. Their is very little assistance for the front desk.

For starters I was given the wrong room a smoker room instead of a non smoke room. I simply told them that was not what I reserved. Then when house keeping went to clean our room the same towels were still there instead of leaving clean towels. No free wi-fi...you have to pay $2.99 each night if you want to... More
