Very modern decorating in the room. Best motel 6 I've ever stayed at. Also, the laundry for the guests was very appreciated. Didn't have to leave the hotel. It came in handy. Location was just off the highway and was perfect for us

Having had an awful experience at a Motel 6 once during our trip I was dreading this stay but it was not as bad as expected. (It had been booked by friends so unable to change). It is a no smoking complex and was cleaner than the previous place, but still needed some attention. The walls are thin so hope... More

I chose to stay in Petaluma because it was centrally located to my plans to go to Point Reyes National Seashore and check out some wineries. Check in was quick, hotel lacked amenities though. No free wifi or continental breakfast was included. The room was updated to seem contemporary but it did not have a mini fridge or even a... More

We needed a hotel room for one night due to family overflow and found Motel 6 as the least expensive available ($73). The place appears to be run well, our room was modern, clean, and the A/C worked very well. Coffee in the lobby in the AM was OK< but they need to add real cream or 1/2 and 1/2... More

Was in town for a wedding and the majority of accommodations were cost prohibitive, so I thought I'd go with good ol' Motel 6. A major disappointment. The room had new fixtures, but that didn't extend to the bathtub which was old and stained, and came with several long brown hairs that did not belong to me or my partner.... More

For the price, this was terrible, but everything in this area is way overpriced. The rooms we were offered ranged from pretty smelly to "OH HELL NO" atrociously disgusting. We were also very close to the lobby and the WiFi was so bad as to be non-existant. They actually charge people for this crap (though the desk clerk gave us... More

Stayed here for a quick one night stop over. The room was clean, beds were comfortable..it's your typical basic motel..nothing fancy and the guy at the front desk was friendly. The only compliant I have is the wifi. I couldn't get a signal from my room.
