“Cheap, Clean, and well-managed.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

For $45 to $50/night lodging in a city with very few well-reviewed upscale choices this motel is a good choice. The management is vey pleasent adn responsive to customer issues. The room was very clean. Costco is behind the hotel and a couple of quality mid-range restaurants are very close, one is only 50 yards from the rooms. No pool at this place, the weather is usually too cold for swimming anyway.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back are very quiet, you do not hear the highway at all.

Checked in after a long peaceful day in the redwood forests and the girl behind the desk was friendly and polite. That is the only positive thing I can say about this property. That and she immediately processed our refund as soon as we realised the grave mistake we had made by checking in here.
The property is overrun with scum. Tweakers, dealers and other associated low life conduct their pathetic excuse for life in this motel.
Don't stay here, there are seriously sketchy vibes and the rooms are foul.
It's not worth the "cheap" rates, keep driving and fork out for a safer place.

I realize it's not supposed to be a 5 start hotel and that you pay for what you get. This place, however, is terrible. We stayed here because we'd been on the road 12 hours and Motel 6 allows pets. Here's a run down of our one night.

*Ice Machine broken
*Air Conditioner or Fan - None
*Spilled some water on the carpet and blotted it with a towel. White towel came away black. We never took our socks off at that point
*Towels so worn you could see through them. Like sandpaper on your skin.
*Pillows like scruffy dry sponges with covers so thin you can see the stains beneath them.

Now for the worst part. People live at this hotel full time and are buying, selling and doing drugs at all hours of the night. We were on the first floor and saw people in their cars shooting up and suspicious looking people wandering around. They'd walk up to someone, chat, exchange something and then walk away. It was so obviously a drug deal and so many people doing it, we actually felt fearful of our safety. We slept maybe 3 hours before we couldn't handle it anymore and left.

I've reached out to Motel 6 in hopes that they'll a. refund our money and b. clean that location up. Let's hope they wise up but just in case they don't - please try to find other accommodations than the Eureka Motel 6.

I stayed whilst passing through, just looking for somewhere at a reasonable cost for a good nights sleep. The check in was easy and quick and the girl was very friendly, she asked me if I wanted upstairs or down, I opted for upstairs, the room was clean no issues with bathroom or the bed. This is a budget motel and in my eyes was value for money. I will not compromise on cleanliness and had no issues. Free coffee was available in reception in the morning. At S49.99 it was good value.

Room Tip: I was upstairs and had no issues.

I don't like to give a negative review but this Motel 6 experience was soo bad, I am bound to write a review for it. Everything in this motel 6 was bad. Room was dirty. We found used paper town under the blanket. I found a bug and a fly in the room (horrible). Sink and bathroom had stains and were so dirty. The sink was even making horrible noise if you open the tap/faucet to its max level. No Air Conditioning. Carpets was also dirty.
I will never go to this Motel 6 again.

Room Tip: See somewhere else.

When we pulled in to the lot the area looked suspect. The parking lot was crowded and small. There was an abandoned car in the parking lot.

The room: stains on carpet, small, old beds, cheap linens and bedding. Towels were old- more like towels you'd use to dust.

The bathroom was cramped, almost to the point of being unuseful.

Avoid this place! Thank goodness there is a Holiday Inn Express going in and they will put this motel (hopefully) out of its misery.

Check-in was very slow, lots of bums hanging around. No A/C.

The room had a wet dog smell that never went away. What's the point of having non smoking rooms that stink anyway.

Ring ahead for a top floor if you really must stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for upstairs away from the road.
