Newly renovated hardwood floors and updated vanity were a definite plus. The dingy, coarse sheets, musty smell and scratchy towels are a minus. I have limited expectations for a bargain freeway-side motel, and this one fell right at expectations. The vending area could use updating, and the area for dog walking could use complementary bags and a trash can (because...

We stayed at these hotel for a night and found it quite nice. The rooms have been recently refurbished look pretty modern. However, the stairs and hallways look outdated. As I always say, the degree of satisfaction we will depend on the rate that you get. We found out that we could have gotten a better rate by using the...

I really enjoyed staying at this motel. Family and I stayed only one night, going to legoland.. The motel did its job. Pros: great location, less than ten minutes from legoland, about a mile from Carlsbad outlet mall, 5 minutes away from the beach. Ten minutes away from Carlsbad Village (bars,restaurant,beach,etc) Great staff, everyone was friendly. Front desk was very...

This place wasn't the nicest but the staff was super friendly and everything was decently clean. They were open minded open our kids noise levels and placing families close together. It was also conveniently placed right in the middle of everything. It was a good place to stay for busy families.

The motel was clean and located adjacent to the I-5 Freeway, an easy on and off. That being said this room had no microwave, in room coffee, refrigerator, Kleenex, iron, or free Wi-Fi etc. So for just a basic room with bed and bath, this is the place.

I don't mind a "simple" motel room, but this property took it to an extreme, which sacrificed basic comforts. No clock, microwave, towel racks, Kleenex, shampoo, [free] Internet, replacement soap, or refrigerator. Pretty much just two beds and a chair. We had 2 towels for 4 people, and housekeeping never replenished the scant supplies we did have (soap and TP—we...

Booked a room here to run the Carlsbad 5K because we had difficulty booking a room at the last minute. This was my first time staying in a Motel 6. It is also my last. I was told that there would be a charge for Internet, but found out later that a friend had received Internet service for their room...

I have stayed here many times. I booked a room online and paid for it. Arrived and was told I am not allowed to come back. I asked the girl at the front desk, "Why?" and she could not answer my questions. The clerk told me that I will not be charged. I hope they do not charge my credit...

Not the best Motel 6 where we have stayed. Adequate only, but as usual, noisy outside room in middle of night. Just off I-5 and short drive into town and it's not a bad drive from San Diego. Denny's handy next door, many great restaurants in town
