We stayed here because of the proximity to Legoland. This was the nicest Motel 6 we have ever stayed at. It is located in an upscale neighborhood, and so the surrounding area felt very safe. We would definitely stay here again if we come up for a visit.

We were very impressed with the beautiful neighborhood. We felt very safe! The room was nice, clean and updated. Grocery store and starbucks were walking distance. Nice and close access to the beach. Would definitely stay here again

No AC, NOISY FAN, NO FRIDGE TO STORE Cold water makes it tough to relax in the comfy bed and watch TV on the flat screen after a long day from the (walking distance) beach. There's a benihana next door and lots of fast food restaurants within five minute drive or if you like Costco pizza like me there's one...

We stayed here for 2 nights as a central base to San Diego and LA. We inquired about a walk in price for the 2 nights. We got a good enough price so we decided to take it. Literally right after she took our card she then told us that wifi was 2.99 extra per device for only 24 hours...

We had booked two rooms for our daughter and family and us. We asked for them to be adjacent to each other. We arrived at 4 p.m. and the rooms were not ready. We had to wait for two hours while they "cleaned" them. They ulitimately gave us two rooms that were on opposite ends of the complex from each...

We stayed here in September the hotel was quiet no noise whatsoever and that's that we were in front of the pool. There are a bunch of places to eat within a 5 mile radius. There is a outlet nearby. But the best part is that the beach is literally 2 minutes away! I think for the price this hotel...

If you are going from San Diego to Los Angeles is a great place to stay, the neighborhood is pretty and safe, the motel is clean and the rooms are new, the guys in the front desk speak Spanish and English and they give you free samples of shampoo, because the motel don't. The wifi sucks you have to pay...

I have stayed here before. I was very impressed when I opened the door of my room and saw a major upgrade. Not your typical dreary Motel 6 decor. Bright and shiny - looked like a European Boutique hotel. Front desk was very pleasant and professional. My only knock on the place is that is was noisy at times.

We opted for Motel 6 because we unexpectedly needed to overnight in Carlsbad and rates in the area are high. Location is convenient and there is a plaza-mall/grocery store just down the road. The staff were all friendly and the setting with rooms facing into the pool is not bad. Maybe it's a motel 6 thing, but the rooms are...
