“Filthy”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

I have stayed at many a motel 6 they are cheap and great for traveling with a pet but I have to say this place was subpar the bed spread looked fifty years old and filthy. The bathroom was tiny the room dingy. They are in need of new linens for sure. The room was super noisy. The only pluses are um there's an in & out nearby and the internet at least worked.
Not good enough for me to ever stay again at this location

Nothing special, all the same as other Motels 6. Clean room, nice pool. Close to highway but not noisy at all. Could be cheaper...

It was the worst experience ever.. Drug dealers, reefers operating in full swing in the parking lot.. It was really noisy all night.. Felt genuinely scared for my safety.. I would not stay there or any other motel 6 chain again..

i stayed here 2 nights because i was hiking at pinnacles national park, which is a beautiful place to hike. this motel is also extremely cheap for the monterey area- motels in monterey of similar quality charge over $100 on w/es whereas this motel 6 charges around $39.
but it's at least a 30 minute drive to monterey from salinas.
the room i stayed in was clean and had recently been painted. the only negative things i could say about the room is that the toilet seat and showerhead should be replaced.
when i stayed there it was very quiet. a security guard was making frequent rounds. when i asked about it, the clerk said there's a nightclub next door and patrons there try to park in the motel 6 lot. the place seemed safe enough to me.
very nice landscaping on the grounds and service was fine.

I arrived in the late afternoon-not too bad at that time. Later all types of people hanging on in parking lot-noisy. The men hanging out scared me and I spent the whole night in the room double locked. Not a good environment for a single woman. Dirty parking lot. bathroom needed cleaning. definitely would not stay here again.

I cannot share the bad experience of the other reviewers at all. We were actually on a trip along the westcoast - and booked the hotel because it is just the cheapest in the area. Its location is perfect - especially for starting day trips around the peninsula. We experienced a clean and nice hotel room and a friendly staff. I may agree that some of its nearby neighberhood might not be the best, but who actually cares - drop in - drop out and enjoy the day. All in all more than a very good price-performance ratio.

Start with the good - the room appeared to be spotless and upon checking the mattresses, there wasn't a bug to be found anywhere. The motel grounds were well kept.
The bad... besides having no alarm clock, hair dryer, fridge, microwave, shampoo's or lotions, they also only provide 2 towels - in a room with 4 people?!?
Then the sun went down.
The drug dealers, pimps, ho's, and johns started coming up from the drainage ditch out back. We had a large group of people with us, including children ranging in age from 10 - 5. The kids were oblivious to what was going on around us, but the 'Social Workers' (as the management called them) didn't seem to mind conducting their business around the family's that were all about. When we brought it up to the management, they simply said, "well, I guess your kids will learn about this kinda stuff sooner than later."
Condoms, used and new, laying about the balcony and grass in the morning, it was just an absolutely horrible hotel. There is two Best Western across the street from this place with an internal corridor, I was told there was no 'Social Worker' activity over there.
