This was the second Motel 6 we had stayed at along our trip. Rooms are clean, friendly staff and close to several restaurants. Not a lot of amenities but GOP value for the price. Plus it is one of the few hotel chains that are pet friendly.

We have been a coming to Carlsbad for at least 25 years and have always stayed either right on the beach or just across the street. Much to our dismay, our favorite moderately priced motel has recently been torn down. Since this stay was only an overnight stop on our way home from a long road trip, we decided to...

The room itself was not bad at all, unfortunately finding parking in the lot at night was a bit of a struggle. Personally loved the cold AC and now quiet it was. If I had to stay here again, I definitely wouldn't mind.

Yes, it's a motel... and as you walk to your room, you may glance through an open door and see your neighbor in their shorts, lying around their room, enjoying a cold beverage in the pleasant SoCal evening... so get used to that. I tried to look straight ahead. Service was great, very clean. Room reasonably updated- window sashes and...

Stayed here for one night. Room was kinda small but very modern and clean. Bed was a little uncomfortable and only had 2 flat pillows. Other than that it was fine. The hotel is walking distance from shops and restaurants and less than a mile to the beach! Would stay again if the price was right

Service at the front desk was great. The room was OK... clean and updated. The bed was, well a bed, nice quite the most comfortable. Handy to Denny's and other eating places. The grassy, shaded courtyard was a plus. In all, it was comfortable enough.

Stayed 3 nights. Deluxe upgrade includes several amenities; I used the shampoo, coffeemaker and Basic WiFi. Free coffee in the office every morning after 6:30, but I was awake earlier and enjoyed brewing my own. WiFi was okay 2 out of 3 nights; 3rd night was poor. Saw no drugs or suspicious activity. Well maintained. The staff is very friendly,...

Unfortunately, The Motel 6 Downtown Carlsbad Is Downright Dangerous On 2 consecutive nights last month, I was greeted by and awoken by individuals searching the Motel 6 Downtown Carlsbad for $3 Oxycontin pills. When I informed the Motel 6 Downtown Carlsbad of the incidents, they dismissed my concerns in an unbelievably callous manner. Two weeks after the Adventures In Oxycontin,...

Visited Carlsbad with daughter; stayed at this Motel 6 for 3 nites. Best thing about it was the location. Beach, restaurants, shopping all within walking distance. Room was clean. Been nice to have tissues and perhaps a small frig. Bare bones amenities, so bring your iron, cooler for water, etc., shampoo, Kleenex (tissues) and other such items. Staff was pleasant...

Great location, walking distance to shops and beach. Clean updated rooms, although we would have liked a few more amenities. Good rates for the location. Beds are a little bit stiff, towels thin, no fridge. Close proximity to the I-5 freeway.
