Motel 6 Carlsbad East
Ranked #34 of 37 Hotels in Carlsbad
Reviewed 22 June 2013

My family and I chose to stay here for our long awaited San Diego vacation due to its close proximity to beautiful North SD county beaches.

Upon arrival, we found that half our building was under construction. By the fourth day of our stay, construction consumed our floor.

When you have small children, you don't want them to have to navigate through piles of sharp wood and nails as they traverse broken furniture along the only terrace walkway leading to their room.

That is a hazard that a $2.99 wifi fee waiver won't negate (that's what I was offered for compensation).

Currently, my son is trying to take a nap as workers pound on the walls next door. I'd like to shower, but the maids can't even access the hallway to bring me clean towels. I won't be staying here again.

You get what you pay for...let that be a warning to you.

Good value for money except for the wifi....advertised as 'high speed' download speed of .36 Mbps and upload speed of .4

That is not high speed! The staff also gave out the wrong wifi password and I had to call an overseas call center to get it working.

When you stop at a Motel 6, you know you aren't going to get 5 Star accommodations. But what you do get is a clean room and good service. The motels are kept up to standard and you know what you are getting. We stay at this Motel 6 in Carlsbad and have for years when we go to the dog shows in Del Mar. They accept our dogs with no problem and have nice grassy areas in front. I would recommend this motel to anyone who wants a nice sleepover with no frills at a terrific price.

This is always our go-to hotel when we need to stay overnight in Carlsbad. The rooms are average. They are always clean. For the price, you can't beat the location and convenience. The staff is always friendly and accommodating.

Save lots if money by staying at this location.
Basic ( no coffee maker in room, no iron, no hair drier no fluffy towels) clean rooms, clean pool and free parking. Save the money and cross the street to the best German eatery in Carlsbad nothing over $12.98 including prime rib on the weekends.

The room is cramped and dark. No shampoo, no hair dryer, the toilet ran all night, the freeway noise is terrible and the decor is depressive at best and charged 2.99 for WiFI. Never again. If you must stop, ask to see the room FIRST!

It is a really cheap motel, good only for 1 night. There was no hair dryer in the room so we asked it at the reception but we were told that they dont have any. So my wife had to dry the hair with the heating.
