“Think this will be our last stay here”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Have been here quite a few times before and always loved its location, the views and backdrop are stunning. And of course the weather is fantastic!
This time, sadly the behaviour of some of the other guests left a lot to be desired. Slamming of door, extremely bad language and shouting, at 1 a.m, children crying and frightened. When I mentioned to the reception the next morning they didn't seem at all bothered or concerned.
We have stayed at Motel 6 for the last 20 years on our visits to the states and always recommended them to others, but now I think they need to move with the times. I know they are an 'economy' chain of motels, but other than a very small bar of soap, they give you nothing. Other 'chain' motels give shampoo and lotions, free wife, coffee and snacks. Think its time Motel 6 moved with the times, people expect a bit more these days, and their prices aren't really cheaper than the likes of Best Western etc.
This motel is in a lovely setting, great pool, easy to park, but with the lack of concern about a customers complaint and the behaviour of other guests, think it will be our last stay.

The real SPARKLE to any business is it 's management and staff. Indeed the manager, Ahmed and his front desk specialist Monica are rock stars. They made my stay comfy by making sure my room had fresh bedding, in fact the pillows did not smell like smoke even though I booked a smoking room. Although the room did smell like tobacco, I used the air conditioner and some of my personal air freshener, which dissipated any tobacco. The bathroom was stocked with clean towels and soap. Motel 6 is a classic travelers hotel providing a safe roof over your head, modest furnishings such as: basic television, air/heat, and a spacious swimming pool with several lounging areas. As a road warrior on a budget, I look for safety , cleanliness, and comfort, Motel 6 Palm Springs East fit my needs. Cheers, PJ

This is a great Motel 6. The location is away from the highway so no freeway noise. The room was very clean, looked like it was recently painted. Also smelled very fresh when I walked in. Mattress looked new. The desk staff were great too! Asked if I would prefer mountain view or pool view (chose mountain) and explained pool was east, so that side gets the sunrise, other side the sunset. View of the mountains from my room was pretty. When checking out, the staff offered information about which roads were closed due to winter storm so I didn't get stuck. They were also friendly and helpful when I asked for directions to a local business.

Room Tip: Liked the mountain-facing rooms for the view and quietness. I like being on the second floor, again...

Rooms were decent. Not a lot of towels but we were only there one night so it wasn't a big deal. I thought the location was fine. Great view, not far from the mountains and also close to the airport. One drawback is that you have to pay for a WiFi code (I think all Motel 6 do that) and it's slow and only valid for one device.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

Not used to writing good reviews for Motel 6 properties, but this property was really good. Everywhere inside and outside was exceptionally clean and looked and was a good place to stay. Wether it be paint, carpets, bathrooms, etc. everything looked new. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and a five minute drive had you in most places you want to be in Palm Springs.

I had stayed at the motel several years ago and that visit was spoiled by general grubbiness and also by the fact that there was a few families living there. All that has changed and to me the property was well run and the price was right.

Only one bad thing was the internet. It costs $6 a day. I can see having to pay for what you use as it keeps the price down. But the internet quality was bad, and only one person could use it at a time. If two or more people require access then you add another $6 per person.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 September 2013

Arrived 8pm after a 10 hour drive, unpacked, out to eat and back in exhausted. On pulling back the bed cover I see what I think is a blood stain (not sure if fresh) I was so tired I just stayed on the other side of the bed. Got up in the night to use toilet to find the cistern is broken and water runs constantly through the toilet.
Morning comes and I go to use the shower only to find a hair at least a foot long, Im bald and my partner V short hair!
The room was 138, we decided not to spend a second night. This is not my usual experience of Motel 6 and had I not been as tired I would have asked to move room.
To end on a good note the shower was fantastic!

Room Tip: Do not take room 138 until the toilet is fixed

Stayed here about 10 minutes. They had bugs. They assured us a termix guy would be the Monday. But we checked in on Friday. So we left staff was great and understanding. And yet I'm still waiting on my refund.
