Disappointing. People were nice. Lady who took our rooms reservation. Desk guy who had us a room by one PM. After that, not so much. One room with bare wires from ripped out smoke alarm. One room with no toilet paper. One room with no hot water that night. Both rooms with huge 3/4 inch gaps in the composite wood...

The bed felt like an elephant person had crushed the springs on my side. VERY uncomfortable to sleep. The shower curtain was missing half its hooks, so no matter how we arranged it, the bathroom floor was soaking wet. I asked for a room away from the interstate (motel is right on the highway) and the first room we were...

My wife and I are driving from Los Angeles to Dallas and we needed a place to stay to recover from our flight from Guam to LAX. We didn't need anything fancy, we just wanted something quick, cheap, and clean. We opted for Motel 6 since it wasn't too far from the highway and it was only $46 for the...

This was a good value. Nice room and large pool. 20 minutes from Mexicali. I enjoyed this location so much I stayed an extra night. Carl's Jr next door for breakfast. Ice machine by front desk. Rooms by the front desk look a bit more secure.

We wanted to cross the border into Baja early the next morning at Mexicali. So we spent the night in El Centro. We always stay at Motel 6 because they take dogs. ( both my friends have one and I have one). This was not the nicest Motel 6 we have stayed in. But, it's close to shopping and we...

We stayed here the night of July 17, 2016. We were kept awake ALL NIGHT by loud guests walking/running by, standing in front of our door smoking and drinking beer and wine and having drunken conversations. There was a wine bottle smashed on the sidewalk immediately in front of our door. When we spoke to the front desk attendant at...

The sheets were worn to the point where you could see through them. There was a terrible smell of urine and feces both inside and outside of the room. Friendly and professional staff and pretty good Wi-Fi at least close to the reception. Was hoping for more better standard from this motel chain.

This is a budget stay place, so I wasn't expecting much beyond a bed, the exterior looks a bit run down. I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in to my room. Whilst simply furnished, the place was nicely cleaned, the beds comfortable and the bathroom was refreshingly nice. There's plenty of parking, and the hotel is pretty close to...
