“Newly Decorated Rooms & Questionable Characters”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

You got it folks! If a newly decorated room is all you want then this is the place for you. The rooms are nice for a Motel 6 and the staff is well trained.

Downsides:

1. The place seems to host a nightly ho convention and an ongoing parade of unseemly characters. The police were summoned on a number of occasions. Upon my arrival the Fremont Police has a man seated on the curb in front of the hotel.

2. Several other travelers have reported problems with the plumbing. When I arrived some guy was in the office complaining that his toilet was backed up. I had to change rooms at midnight because an overflowing toilet in the unit above was starting to flood my room. Note: The staff took $10 off for this inconvenience.

3. There is a small charge for the Internet. It barely works. I checked the speed, which at highest was .4 download and .6 upload.

I would frequently stay here until I was harrassed by FPD when I learned that Hotel Policy allows them to share your info and if you have warrants to come to your room and arrest you! I was sitting in my vehicle when they approached me, and when they discovered I didnt have warrants they said "Why are you staying Here?" only Prostitution and drugs acccure there...case closed!

Room Tip: request wood floor wont smell like dogs

When I entered my room, I found that my toilet was totally broken, the water couldn't flow out when I pushed the button, the pipe was plug. I went to office and told them this situation and want to change the room, but he said he will arrange a guy came to my room to repair it. I wait about 30 minutes in the room then someone show up, he didn't repair it, the toilet still plug and he left. I went to bath then I found that the bathroom is also plug so the water can't flow out, whf! I will not come to this hotel again in the future!!

I agree with "Patrick M". I know that I generally don't take the time to write a review unless I've had a negative experience. and I suspect that many of the critics here do likewise.

I feel I need to balance the record. I love Motel 6; I rely on Motel 6. I drive all over the country with my large black dog, and I don't always know where I'll be stopping for the night.. But when I see the Motel 6 sign, I know we can count on a clean, comfortable room that will accommodate both of us -- w/o surprise surcharges for the dog. I have always found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. No, they don't offer hot breakfasts like higher-starred hostelries, but I'm not fool enough to believe that non-breakfast eaters like by myself are not paying in full for the "free deluxe" meals offered by other hostelries -- whether or not we choose to eat them.


$3/ per day to access internet is also annoying, but liveable.

(In this case, the Lucky's Market next door offers a full compliment of baked goods My one suggestion to the Motel 6 chain is that in addition to morning coffee, all stores offer hot water for tea or chocolate for us non-coffee drinkers. This particular motel DOES offer hot water, and is adjacent to a shopping center with a Lucky's market.

I'd stay here before, and I'd definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: At the time I stayed, there, two-bed rooms were in short supply and only available on the upper flo...

The more I read some reviews of different Motel 6s, the more I think they're planted by the competition.

This place is clean, quiet, the morning coffee is drinkable, a cheery "good morning sir" from the desk clerk.

I'm here on business for a start-up company and money is tight. I'm really thankful that this chain exists. They're owned by the Accor group in France where I live. If you have a problem with one of these Motel 6s and don't get satisfaction in the States, write to corporate in France - you probably will get a more attentive ear.

For a short stay, this place is perfect

Quit yer belly aching!!!

Have stayed here a few times. Again its motel 6. What can you really say?? the staff has always been friendly and helpful. The rooms have been fairly consistent. I had one incident where I was not happy with the cleanliness and they resolved it very quickly. Beds are again your average motel 6 bed. not real comfy but will do. There are a few decent place to eat close by. it is close to the freeway but not so close you get the noise. If you need a clean quiet room for a night or two it is a good place for the money. If you want amenities of course you will have to look elswhere.

If you want to spend under $50 in a major metro area, you have to lower your expectations. Certainly the case here. Check-in clerk was friendly and competent, but the first room he gave me had a horrendous smell. No way. The second room smelled okay – and on the upside and new carpets and curtains and a fresh coat of paint. But the shower had a leaky showerhead, the AC had a broken grille (but worked), the chair was wobbly, and unlike most M6s with one bed, there was no table. Bed was swaybacked and lumpy though I slept fine. Bare bones and marginal, but tolerable for true tightwads.
