The hotel is better than most Motel 6 hotels that I have stayed in. The mattress is tired and should definitely be replaced. This is why I gave it only a 3 star overall rating. So nice to have a Denny's right next door. Also very disappointed that they charge $2.99 each computer for their slowest internet.

We thought that this was a clean place to stay. Definitely not. Hair in the sink on the floor in the bathroom. Stains on the sheets floor very dirty. Overheard the staff say that I was being ridiculous because I wanted someone to come clean the hair out of the sink. Would not recommend this motel to anyone drive a...

Had to change rooms. First room had bad smells and stains on the bedspread. Second room still smelled like meth. Still smelled bad. Shower was good. Not too noisy. Very close to the border for a quick, easy, early start when southbound. The whole place had a sketchy atmosphere.

M vehicle was towed away on August 12th due to their policy of customers needing to place a blue piece of paper on the dash board where it can be seen. There's no good reason for this policy since when checking in the hotel has your license plate number,credit card number and has already charged your credit card for your...

Its an Budget motel with modern rooms, plus an outdoor pool, a coin laundry & free parking. If you're looking for a cheap clean room to rest up and take a shower this is it. There is an Denny's restaurant right next door too. The staff/receptionist was awesome, friendly and helpful. I would/will stay there again..

This hotel was nice and clean. No carpets which I love. Pets are welcome. There is an outdoor pool. There is a Dennys in the parking lot however we waited 20 minutes with no other customers and couldn't get seated so we went around the corner to the iHop. This hotel is conveniently located near EVERYTHING! Including the border! We...

In the outrageously overpriced San Diego hotel market this is a good place to stay if you only want to sleep and spend the day in TJ. The rooms are clean and have been renovated not long ago, sporting laminate wood floor instead of the infamous hotel carpets. The beds are tiny (queen and smaller), the rooms are minuscule and...

The staff here was really nice to eat check in was very easy the only thing that I would say about this hotel that I did not like was that they did not have any tubs after traveling from Florida by motorcycle, I would have liked to have a nice hot bath! There were no washcloth in the bathroom and...

This is a quite clean and well-maintained place to stay. The staff were helpful and positive. The price was great. The only real drawback was that there wasn't any internet. I bought an internet package but it didn't work. The good news is that when I complained I was given my money back.

Quiet, safe, economical, family friendly, close to the mall, excellent staff... With a Dennys right next door this Motel 6 makes for great late night dining. The grounds could use a little upkeep but other than this, this is the best stop before going into Mexico and a convenient place to rest after returning.
