Only needed to rest our heads for one night, Perfect. Great check-in, Staff very helpful regarding the surrounding area. Rooms basic, clean, with all we needed. My friend was taken ill over night, and Reception kindly extended our check-out time to accommodate this.

It was an ok stay for one night. The room was small and they squeezed two queen size beds in with just a small area to walk between them. No hair dryer in the bathroom. Bed was comfortable and the room was clean.

I made a reservation in March and asked for a quiet room. On day of arrival we were given a rather noisy room. When I questioned the person on the desk I was told they delegate rooms "on the day of". As there was a large group registered that day they got all the back rooms. So booking in advance...

We chose to stay at motel 6 because we travel with two big dogs, and motel 6 are very dog friendly (other places that allow pets usually have size/breed restrictions and charge and extra fee). Motel 6 was okay - very convenient location, friendly staff, nice little pool, and parking right next to our room. The big problem was that...

There weren't many hotels left on our last minute trip to Tahoe. We chose the motel 6 without having the highest of expectations. It was surprising to see the newer updates and modern decor at this motel 6. We enjoyed our stay and would return even with unlimited options in the future.

We checked in last night. The pool was nice. There is a bike trail directly behind the hotel which was a good place to walk our dog. They also gave us dog treats. Unfortunately we left items in the back of our truck and they were stolen. We only stayed one night. There is a new goodwill near the hotel...

Not the best Motel 6, not the worst, either. They clean well after check-outs -- lift the beds, vacuum underneath. I was in one of the newly renovated (accessible) rooms. All was fine. I detest the policies of other "pet-friendly" hotels where they require a "deposit" of $100 or more that they don't tell you is non-refundable, even if pet...
