“If you need a clean, safe place to bed down for the night...this is it.”
Reviewed 1 February 2010

We were on vacation and on our way to another state.
But one days drive would have meant a long day so we decided to break the trip in half and and stay in Needles.
There were several good hotels there but since we were arriving late at night and would be leaving first thing in the morning we weren't interested in amenities. Just a clean, safe place to stay
I read the reviews on Motel 6 and decided to give it a try.
Glad I did.
I have staying in Motel 6's before and not all of them are as well cared for as this one.
We got a room for the Handicap since it was the only one left with wifi on the ground floor.
The bathroom was extra large and the room was really designed for only one person. But my wife and I aren't very big so we fit in the single bed.
My only complaint was that the bathroom didn't have a shelf where we could set our toiletries. We had to balance them on the sink bowl.
The towel rack was broken and the phone didn't work for some reason.
But the internet connection (a couple of bucks extra) worked great so we didn't need the phone.
All in all, I'd stay there again.
By the way, they allow pets.

We were on a road trip from Central California to Oklahoma for the Christmas holidays and spent the first night in Needles. We had not been in a Motel 6 for several years and decided to stay there because of the reviews. It was in a very quiet location and next to a Denny's that offered a small discount. The desk clerk was very friendly and helpful with local information. The room was very clean and offered basic furnishings. There was no coffee maker or hair dryer in the room, but I always carry travel ones. The queen bed was barely adequate, both in size and comfort. If the bed had been better, I would have given the motel a higher rating. We continued east via Laughlin, NV and thought we would stay there, instead of Needles, in the future.

...spent the night in Needles driving from Colorado to California. Had reservations here after reading the reviews.

The staff was very helpful, and even broght an extra ice bucket to our room for our dog! The room was small, but then again, it's a Motel 6... It was clean though. The bed wasn't really that comfortable, but it was nice.

the 10% off at Denny's was an added plus.

All in all, I recommend this hotel for a stop in Needles.... Convenient to the freeway, restaurant next door, near the gas stations (oh DON'T FILL UP IN NEEDLES)

Gas stations charge $1.00 extra per gallon. Before you arrive either fill up in Barstow / Hesperioa or Kingman..... Rip off for the unsuspecting tourists....

This was a real nice Motel 6 and they had a nice deal with 10% off at next door Denny's. Real friendly staff and a nice place to stay.

Almost in the middle of nowhere (referring to the town of Needles, not to the Hotel) but hot as the hell, this hotel is a convenient location if you are passing by and need a bed to rest a bit. No frills, no luxuries, but clean and fair enough for the money you pay it.

The room, located at the groung floor, was something more than the bed and the toilet, having a table and a couple of chairs which can be used both to eat something or to support your case. Wi-fi, TV set and coffee machine inside the room, hairdryer in the toilet: no other amenities you can enjoy with.

A small swimming pool beside the property and Denny's right opposite the car park complete the picture.

I reserved a two night stay here ( stayed here one year ago and was happy - see my earlier review). Anyway . . . I carry a laptop and require i/net, but the manager insisted that he had to charge me another $2.99 per night for wifi. Other Motel 6's (eg - Lake Havasu City) do not charge EXTRA. Money is tight for all of us in this economy and some owners haven't got this yet. The manager refused to budge, so I cancelled the booking and his principles cost him a 2 night booking!!! I went up the road to Laughlin and paid less in a great hotel. I will not be back.
