Motel 6 Salinas South - Monterey Area
Ranked #22 of 25 Hotels in Salinas
Reviewed 15 March 2012

Stopped here after flying in to San Fran on the way to LA. Quick, easy, no frills. Everything as as you expect at a Motel 6. Website claims this location was refreshed but I didn't noticed. Choosed this location because it's the closest to Pinnacles National Monument,

All motel 6's are what they say they are basic but OK. they have clean beds, clean rooms, clean bathrooms, in fact the showers are great and powerful & finally TV - what more do you need!? I think they're mainly used by travelers and lorry drivers. We had no issues with the motel and slept well. The location was just off the Freeway so very easy to find and get back onto. It's next to a Denny's which does great breakfasts and there is a jack in a box too for similar food. They have a pool which we didn't use.
The staff are friendly and helpful and gave us maps and recommendations on things to do. $3 for 24hrs of WIFI.
Overall we have no complaints, it is basic great for travelers. If you want to do something on the night you need to drive. Carmel by the sea is amazing and also the 17 mile drive is close by, stunning views.
Fine for a base or night but not lo g term and not for those who like
More comfort!!!

Generally lacking comparison, but this Motel6 was exactly what you would expect from a sterile, cold chain-Motel...

Small, without any amenities, and a bath which they probably clean with a pressure-washer...
Very low quality, but ok for a night, I suppose...

The pool area was nice to sit around at night, but you had to whisper... Which paper-thin sheet-rock and the low quality, people seem to get angry very quickly... But what really deprives people from sleep here is th eoccasional car alarm going off...

No real complaints for the purpose of our field trip, we even got the Wifi... But I'd never deliberately chose this place.

Downtown Salinas is not too far if you like walking, and the standard American fast-food strip-mall is your direct neighborhood at this Motel6.

I chose this hotel over Days Inn because the rate was cheaper at Motel 6. Both of these hotels are in the same area. I saved $150 picking Motel 6 over Days Inn; but I got what I paid for - no hairdryer, no free Wi-Fi, no refridgerator, no microwave, no complimentary coffee in my room. The bedspread looked like it was stained; but it was multi-colored, so barely noticeable. The bed was very uncomfortable. The staff seem nice enough; but that is the only thing this hotel has going for it. Someone also pounded on my door at 3AM. One morning, I saw a scantilly clad woman (prostitute) out by someone's car.

Avoid rooms in the back! A very busy prostitute ring is run out of the back section of this hotel. Management knows and says they can't do anything about it. After all, they are paying guests, too. We booked this hotel for three nights over Memorial Day weekend and barely handled two. Loud parties. Drunk guests and single men in cars driving around the parking lot hitting on my daughter every time she left the room. Our five month old baby couldn't even sleep through all the noise. Other than that, the rooms were clean and cheap. But do yourself a favor and pay an extra $10 bucks a night to get an entire nights sleep and be comfortable both in and out of your room!

Stayed here for one night with my husband. The hotel was great considering the price. We used the laundry room which was well maintained and clean as the rooms. Ok, there were some strange hotel guests but overall quiet. The Denny's next door is a terible breakfast option though...

Fairly new renovation, escpecially bath, good beds, TV, Ice machine. Very impressive for a Motel6 (still no shampoo or brkfst, of course, but for $42 bring your own). I cannot imagine what someone didn't like about this; 15 minutes from Monterey in a safe location right next to a Denny's.
