“Charged for a WET room No refunds.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

We reported there was water on one of the beds and on carpet almost half of the room, we got charged the same after I was told I would get reimbursed for one night but manager did not honor their promise. Who the heck wants to be charged for so unpleasant experience?? There was no more rooms available.. :((

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

Just like another guest wrote in his review, we spent one night there back in July of 2012. No A/C, but it was a cool evening and the circulation fan did work. Now we stayed two nights earlier this month of April 2013. With two beads, non-smoking we were in the same block of rooms. Same thing no A/C, maintenance staff had us check two other rooms, one was cooler so we took it and they sprayed it out for us, not their fault, prior guests smoked in non-smoking room. The A/C wasn't near cold, just better. Staff on both stays are OK. Everything else works OK, they serviced the room for our second night, still short on large towels. No insulation, so lots of traffic noise from the highway. My wife and I are traveling or out doing things and are only there to sleep in these type of motels, so the price is right with the senior discount.

Room Tip: You should not pay in advance when making a reservation, just let them hold a room and when paying a...

We were intending to stay at the Best Western but was full as it was a holiday weekend - then tried Quality Inn across the road who tried to charge us $189.99!!!!!! And admitted it was profiteering. Went next door to Motel 6 - normal rates, courteous desk staff - clean basic room - everything worked - absolutely no complaints.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2012

Woke up Saturday morning July 30th with about 12 bites on my face, left hand and arm. I advised the front desk that evening that I had woken up with the bites, the next day they changed the bedding. We stayed a total of 3 nights and every day more bites showed up. After we got home on Monday, I noticed a few more had showed up. Ended up with over 50 bites over my whole body.

Now my husband is getting the bites at home. So it looks we brought them home. We were in room 245.

I think this is going to be an extremely expensive stay.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

Stayed here in July 2012 for a night while visiting Monterey and Salinas. The Motel 6 was nothing more than expected: a convenient but inexpensive place to sleep for the night. The front desk had a worn and tattered sign taped to it noting that the air conditioning was broken. Indeed, the A/C in the room did not appear to work. The room was clean and had only the mildest smell of mildew wafting through the air.

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!!!
