Motel 6 San Diego Hotel Circle- Mission Valley
Ranked #222 of 278 Hotels in San Diego
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Rather than drive home one evening, we made decided to stay in the area. Not wanting to spend a lot, we chose the Motel 6, and truthfully....should have just made the drive home. When you walk into the room for the first time, it feels like walking into an Ikea showroom. That in itself is not necessarily a bad thing. It was the complete disregard from the front desk. I don't believe I have ever waited as long to be assisted or even acknowledged while the person was five feet away. After waiting what was an awkward amount of time, and flashing a couple smiles as she looked up, she finally walked over. I almost felt bad for pulling her away from whatever important duties she was in the middle of. The first impression really left a black mark on the. At the very least, we were able to get an idea of the establishment so we don't make a mistake of recommending family or friends, regardless of what budget they may be on. There are plenty of other viable options in the area.

newly upgraded rooms look beautiful, the staff was courteous the atmosphere was heavy. the old manager would come out and greet new arrivals, the new one is seldom seen.
The old general manager has been promoted and a succesion of replacements
cannot measure up to his caliber.
new and bright on the outside, but the heart has been torn out.
staff is courteous, rooms are clean, OK for short stays

Once we got the key card to our room we opened the door and realized the room was occupied. The people weren't there but we had access to someone else's room. THEY GAVE US KEYS TO SOMEONE ELSE'S ROOM! Unacceptable!

We stayed only because every other hotel in the area was booked.

We went to attend a wedding... Coming back (12 midnight) to our motel we got stopped by what looked like a sobriety check point at the Motel 6 parking lot. I could not believe it!!! Motel 6 took a head count of how many people were in the car compared to how many people checked in!!! They wanted IDs from all three of us. They made my tired brother go in and register and pay more for the additional person.

I will never again use a Motel 6. Poor security, poor guest service and they make you feel uninvited.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 4th floor of the 4 story building that way you don't have to hear people walki...

The management is lazy, the security is horrible. We stayed while apartment hunting and almost every night they're was someone argueing and screaming in one of the rooms, security never did anything about it even after calling multiple times to complain. I only stayed here due to its pet policy. The rooms themselves weren't terrible and were pretty clean but they had no hot water most of the time and there was always a pump running somewhere which constantly woke us up in the middle of the night. My opinion is to find another motel 6 if need be. Ive stayed at a few in and around San Diego and I have to say this is the worst so far.

Room was fully renovated in sleek, modern style. Wooden-type floors, fantastically comfortable pillows, and a cute breakfast nook. It was honestly a lot more than I'd expected from a Motel 6. Staff were very friendly. Extra security on the weekends.

We have pets so our options are limited with hotels, and motel 6 is one of the few, so we stayed here one night over a busy holiday weekend. They advertised renovated rooms, so we were hopeful, but honestly they seemed about halfway done. There are wood laminate floors and a decent TV set up, but the furniture looks like ikea gave them their leftovers. The mattresses were very uncomfortable. The shower temperature was constantly changing. There are no toiletries provided, no blow dryer, nothing, except a little bar of soap. The "counter" is a cheap piece of wood that isn't painted or anything, just wood. It's a cheap motel, you get what you pay for, but advertising as renovated is a stretch. Spend 10 more bucks and go across the street where you can get breakfast and toiletries and free wi-fi. The one positive I will say is the staff was extremely friendly.

There is not much I can say except: dirty, uncomfortable und not friendly at all. We stayed at the Motel6 in San Diego end of September. We did not have high expectations, but even these were not met. The location of the Motel is fairly good. Check-in process was ok. The rooms were dirty and a bit run-down. One could smell cigarette smoke. The towels were not clean and with hairs. When I complained about the room, all I got from receptionist was an odd smile and that they are sorry. I will not stay there again.
