“best motel 6 ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

I was coming into town to visit relatives and decided to stop at this motel 6 based on its pictures, but the service was just as great. Joseph was very helpful, kind, and considerate. He helped me and my grandmother with our luggage and made sure everything was ok with the room before he left us.

Room Tip: The 2 queen beds was a great room

I booked a room here via Expedia -- price was $70.17 w /taxes & fees. When I arrived at the hotel, the hotel attendant charged me the hotels rate $46.78 w/taxes & fees, because he didn't know how to properly accept my reservation from Expedia. Lesson learned: avoid Expedia and contact the hotel for the lower rate. The hotel manager informed me that Expedia buys rooms in bulk and sets the prices on their end. Nice little mark-up.

The room itself was typical Motel 6. Somewhat clean, but not stocked with the shower towels or kleenex. Relative to the other options in the valley, I would say that the price is OK if you get it for ~$46 -- definitely not worth $70.

Room Tip: Do not purchase via Expedia. Contact the hotel directly by phone for best rate.

I have previously reviewed this hotel and ALWAYS thought highly of it. It's usually an incredible price, clean, with friendly staff.

However, that was NOT the case this past weekend (07/20/13-07/21/13). It took over 30 minutes to check-in, so we couldn't attend a scheduled show.

Our room didn't have towels. We had to walk down to the office 3 times, before someone was able to give us clean towels.

The bathroom in our room hadn't been cleaned. I first noticed hair and a dead fly on the floor when I was using the restroom. That evening when I went to take a shower, there were 4 hairs in the shower when I went to turn the faucet on.

I told the front desk lady about these issues at check-out. She just shrugged. Unfortunately, it was the same lady that took over 30 minutes to check us in.

We usually love this hotel and choose it over others in the area. However, we are seriously considering finding a new place to stay. It makes us sad. This WAS such a great place!!

Room Tip: Cheapest rates are usually found at Motel6.com!!

We stayed here in May 2013 because we couldn't get a room on Priceline. I think we might have gotten the last room, so maybe there was something going on in Fresno that we didn't know about.

There were a few negatives:

- Not enough towels. This room had two beds and could sleep four people, but there were only two bath towels, one hand towel, and although there were two washcloths, one of them was on the counter and looked like it may have been previously used.
- The shower temperature was inconsistent, and had an odd water spray pattern (sorry, I don't remember why it seemed odd, but it was noticeable enough to include in my notes).
- The toilet tank had a slow leak and thus would periodically refill even though it hadn't been flushed.
- There was a stain on the sink wall that looked like someone had wiped their nose on it.
- The floor was not vacuumed well; there were obvious threads and lint.

Like all Motel 6s:

- The bath towels were small and thin.
- No shampoo was provided.
- No notepad was provided.

On the plus side:

- A king bed or two queen beds was better than most Motel 6s that I've stayed in.
- Having a refrigerator and microwave in the room was a nice surprise.
- There was a nice small desk space and chair.

Overall, it was clean enough and OK for what we needed. We would stay there again under the same circumstances.

Came for niece's college graduation. Room was large, clean, and did not have a funky smell like the last Motel 6 we stayed in. The front desk clerks (Carla at check-in and Gladys in the a.m.) were great. Very guest oriented. Called the room after check in and asked how everything was. The room had a king bed, microwave, fridge, good size tv, shower/tub combo, in room safe. I loved this room. I loved the staff. I loved the price. The location was perfect. While right next to the highway, the setup of the property allows for complete blockage of traffic noise. Only thing I would change is upgrading the mattress. It was firm and comfortable, but sloped down on both sides. Doesn't matter. We would stay here again. Also - M6 is always pet friendly and our pet is part of the family, so it is nice to know she is welcome here.

This motel is in a great location, there is lots of stores and good restaurants nearby. It is clean, cozy and quite, so it is a good place to rest. Also Krystal from the front desk, is very nice and professional, she allways has a smile and willing to help... I have a company truck and nothing has ever been missing and it does look like a safe area. So if you come here you won't regret it.
