We were hired to move a person from San Diego to Carmel, So the person kindly booked us a room at this Motel 6 Downtown. It was close enough for getting food and some needed rest after a grueling drive up from San Diego. The rooms and showers were clean and everything worked.

We don't stay in budget motels and only stayed here because the couple we were traveling with made the reservation. The positive - the room was clean, the bed comfortable and conveniently located near Hiway 101 and the downtown area. The room decor was Spartan at best and had an institutional ambiance. It was a rainy day and after bringing...
