Motel 6 El Centro

Reviewed 16 March 2017 via mobile

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 night. We got a queen sized bed in a non-smoking room. An added plus for some but a negative for others is that it allows pets. Up to 2 dogs I believe.

Anyways, the room we got was clean and the air conditioning was already running. The room overall was great for the price. There's the obvious downfalls of a budget hotel like being close to the highway and being able to hear the traffic. Some unexpected problems that I noticed was that the filter for the a/c was completely clogged with dust and hair. Clogged to the point that the hair made its way into the actual unit. This unfortunately left the air from the unit smelling pretty rank. The last problem was that the door had been misaligned or the door frame had been fixed so many times that the only way I could get the door to latch was by using excessive force and to use the deadbolt I had to pull up on the door handle to realign the door in the door frame.

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 planned to do some before crossing the border.
It was clean and comfortable. What more do you want when you are just spending the night?

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 7am Saturday to notify him of the situation, and the safety hazard, he had the GALL to turn it around on us! He said "well, I don't know who was at the desk last night, but why didn't you call it in?" Because we're telling you in PERSON? He continued, "the maintenance personnel wouldn't be in for another hour or so and they would clean up the shattered glass and beer cans then." The manager, Vanessa Cocova, would be notified and the $49.49 charged would be reversed. This hasn't happened as of yet. WORST EVER!!!
