“UGH”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

I stay in Motel 6's because I travel with dogs...this place was gross...seriously gross. I spent two nights there ONLY because I was teaching 2 blks away....NEVER AGAIN.

I think there was a hooker next to me and what appeared to be drug deals going out the front of the motel...bad location, bad neighborhood...very scary.

Room Tip: Don't go there.

Yes--it's Motel 6 and we all know that means NO FRILLS. The location near major streets, the highway and scores of restaurants, fast-food, and stores makes the location great if you are on your way across or up and down California. The building looks nice and I thought the neighborhood seemed like a good one since we were surrounded by nice businesses. Our biggest complaint was the door was so difficult to open my poor husband almost hurt his shoulder having to ram the door with it just to get it open. Room was clean and the furnishings were Motel 6 style. The bed was practically pushed up against the wall making it difficult for the person on that side to get in and out--it was also very hard and lumpy--we didn't get a very good night's sleep--especially when a high pitched alarm--probably a Smoke Alarm--went off in the room next to ours about 1:30AM--waking us up thinking there was something wrong in our room. If all you're looking for is a cheap place to take a shower and spend the night, then this is fine. Just remember Motel 6 means NO FRILLS and you pay for WIFI.

Room Tip: You would probably be best off to the back and on the ground floor.

Did not feel safe here, worried about our new car parked here, had to call mgmt at 1 AM due to yelling and screaming next room, (our room fee was refunded due to these issues).
Room was very shabby and did not feel clean, also smoking smell was strong. Blanket on bed was horrible-looking. TV remote did not work. Very disapointed -- am not feeling good about Motel 6 overall, had another bad experience the night before at Motel 6 in Hemet, CA.

I was thankfully only staying 1 night, it was really just a place to sleep for a few hours while passing thru CA. The lock on the door was broken/hanging off, I had to screw it back on myself. After a long drive I wanted to watch some TV before falling asleep, the TV is very very small (I believe it was just 13') and did not swerve on it's stand so when laying on the bed on the right it was hard to see, it also had lots of static. The next morning I noticed there were boogers on the wall by the sink in the vanity area. Pillows were flat and bed wasn't very comfy. There was not an alarm clock and the room only had 1 outlet. Night check-in is done outside thru a window, it was cold and there were 4 people ahead of me, it was not very fun waiting in the cold. The price for 1 night was $66, I believe that is WAY overpriced for a low quality hotel room. I have stayed at other Motel 6's and never had issues like this.

i arrived to Escondido, and i picked this hotel because of the price and location.

the internet was what i would say the worst part, it's was very slow and dropped a few times (also a 2.99 a day charge was tacked on)

the room was clean, everything worked bathroom shower worked well. bed was comfortable.

the laundry was a fair price to wash and dry.

Worst experience at a Motel 6 ever! The reservations were messed up, the rooms were dirty and smelled bad, and all the amenities were old and barely working. A family that we were traveling with had their reservations messed up and the manager refused to help them get the issues fixed. The manager claimed there were no other rooms to switch too but a front desk employee said that there were other rooms available. The manager also claimed he called other Motel 6 in the area but they were all sold out as well. I called the 1-800 Motel 6 number and they had 2 rooms for us at a different location within in minutes. Would not recommend anyone stay here! I would pay a little extra anyday to find a different motel to stay at.

I travel a lot in Asia and I have s saying when traveling, "This place looks almost like a motel 6," but hard to find. Traveling In Calcutta, India I found "Super Guest House" which is almost that Motel 6 standard. Many hotels either not up to the Motel 6 standard or are $100 a night too costly. I have just come to notice over the years, this Motel 6 in Escondidod like all Motel 6's is always having carpets shampooed, or buying new mattresses or phones, always maintaining the building so that it is up to that Motel 6 standard. I grew up on family trips with my dad taking us to motel 6's because he had that minimum standard of cleanliness for his family. The Escondido Motel 6 is like all Motel 6's, clean, comfortable and nice office staff. Wish they had a motel 6 closer to Poway. Rod Stansbery

Room Tip: At Motel 6's always chose a room near the office whre is is the quietest. The way Motel 6's...
