Motel 6 Scottsdale
Ranked #59 of 75 Hotels in Scottsdale
Reviewed 31 March 2014

I reserved 2 rooms 6 weeks before my stay and you gave both of them away to other guests due to greedy overbooking on your part.
The hot tub was broken the entire week of my stay, as was the ice machine. This was my 4th spring break at your hotel but rest assured it will be my last.
I am appalled at how poorly I was treated as a loyal client of yours.
The owner of this Motel 6 should be ashamed, and the manager should be fired.

Absolutely unacceptable.

The room was reasonably priced and located near the attractions that we desired. Our room lacked space and privacy (sound). You could hear the neighbors every move. The furnishings were adequate. The rooms were clean. There was no alarm clock, refrigerator or microwave. The pool was decent. It was clean and it had plenty of chairs to sit/lay on. My biggest complaint would probably be the sound between rooms!

Somehow, $95 a night and Motel 6 just don't seem to go together. But, in the case of Scottsdale in high season, it is the best value going. Positives are the location (5 minute walk to Fashion Square shopping mall and about a mile from Old Town), cleanliness, fresh paint, comfortable bed, a great shower and Pergo-like wood floors. The biggest negative for us was the lack of a dresser and closet space. If you are staying a few days and like to unpack, there were just a few open shelves attached to the wall and 2 small rods for hanging clothes. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: There are no elevators so travelers with mobility issues should request a ground floor room.

it was nice to see fresh paint and new furnishings in this hotel since our visit a year ago..it is very close to the main shopping areas of scottsdale, And to many of the baseball spring training venues such as the Rockies am the Giants..At 85 dollars a night for our March visit, it was one of the pricier Motel 6 places. But after all, it is Scottsdale!

there's even a very nice swimming pool area to get a refreshing and dip in.

If you are on a budget then this is the place to stay, but as with everything you get what you pay for. I have stayed here on four occasions, the rooms have been refurbished and are ok. On the plus side, the staff are friendly and extremely helpful, rooms are small but clean. It's situated next to the Pancake House which is 75% of the reason I stay there! Free ice machine.
Now the bad points, noise, unfortunately some guests think they are at home and have zero consideration for other people. Loud conversations at whatever time of day and especially at night, people hollering to each other in the car park, one lady banging on a door wanting to be allowed in!
Loud voices by guests walking past your door at 3am in the morning etc
Police visits, on my last two visits police have attended the Motel and even made arrests, not sure why, it wasn't my business so I never asked.
No hair dryer, no free internet no room safe. No mini fridge unless you pay extra.
Front of the motel rooms do suffer from traffic noise. And as with any motel you sleep on the edge of a car park so noise is unavoidable.
In summary, you get what you pay for and in this case it's good value if you are prepared to accept the downsides as mentioned above. It's a great location and if you are on a budget you won't get better. If you want peace, quiet and luxuries well there are plenty of other places in Scottsdale, you'll just have to dig deeper into your pockets!

Ok, Motel 6 again! As you can see from my reviews I am in the Hotel business and travel as the Director of Business development for a Hotel company. I stay all over the USA and this Motel 6 has the "New" Phoenix rooms. With Hard wood floors and flat screen TV'S new beds so on...
The GM is nice and her staff are nice. The location is real great as it's in Downtown Scottsdale and surrounded by upper scale resorts so, you feel like you should pay more..... We stayed a few times here and one time in the older style rooms then we got a chance to stay in the "New" Phoenix rooms. The size of the rooms are small but the pools is nice and clean and they do have a restaurant on site but we did not eat try it. All in all a nice Motel 6. But if you do get a chance try the Studio 6 as we did in Tucson and that was wonderful read my review on that. Thank you again Tripadvisor for letting me post my "Real" reviews.......
