As soon as you reach the front door, your problems begin. The right side has a faded and almost illegible sign saying 'use other door' I thought the door was broken, but no, its for the convenience of the staff. DO NOT give them your insulin or other temperature sensitive medicine, they FROZE my insulin, destroying $300 worth of my...

Surprised at new hotel right along main road and next to Sonic. Quiet on 2nd floor about half way back. Owner warned of making sure to park under light and don't leave anything in car. Room had flatscreen tv. Coffee available in the morning. Very content with room, and budget price. Good service.

Needed an inexpensive room for a short rest - 9pm-2am that would meet my travel allowance. Check-in staff were very nice and had to work around their computer system being down. . Room was tidy. Direct TV worked fine. However, No cup, shampoo, or conditioner,

Incredibly friendly and helpful staff...front desk and room keepers. Great location in and out of Espanola and Los Alamos, even onward to Taos. A/C cranked. Ample parking. Access via a hallway rather than the unsightly room-to-parking lot motels. Just don't look too closely and remember it's a Motel 6 in fairly remote NM.

We got a room here July 18th. We were told there was a no TV cable. We asked about wifi and they said yes we have it so we purchased the room. We were not there 30 mins and the wifi dos not work. We asked to speak to the manger. Knocked on his door no answer. The employee upfront...

Espanola is a very small town, so we didn't expect any luxury. This property is a bit old, but we got what we paid for. After a cold day outdoor it was pleasant to get into a warm room that had all the basics. The young lady at front door was very helpful - she even gave us a call...

I found the staff friendly and helpful, and rooms comfortable. However unlike most of the motel 6 properties this one has not been refurbished yet. Carpets in rooms and hallways are badly stained. There is a little rust in the bath room, minor burn holes in spreads, and a lot of duct tape used to cover holes in walls. If...

We were tired after a long day of driving but the motel was so dirty and smelled so bad that we decided not to stay there. Instead we opted to drive another hour to a place that was clean and safe. I would have slept in my car rather than staying in the Motel 6 in Espanola, NM.

The motel smelled as soon as you walked in. The carpets were stained. The room smelled of urine. The people hanging around the motel were low lifes The hotel was dark and uninviting. I think it might have been the kind you rented room by the hour.
