I always check the bed and room before paying, the bed was infested with bed bugs, got out of there like the room was on fire. DO NOT STAY. The hotel is dirty and smells bad. I would not consider staying at another Motel 6 out of fear that they too have bedbugs.

OK, I debated between Poor and Average. Decided on Average because our room was actually OK. I was satisfied with room and the daily cleaning was adequate. Of course, this is a Motel 6, if you have stayed at this chain before - enough said. This place was renovated and I was happy to not see carpet in my room....

Our room was nicely designed, clean and not very noisy. The beds were comfortable and WiFi worked. The staff was friendly and the price for the night was reasonable. Nothing to complain, I would visit this motel anytime again.

Got back to motel 6 around midnight and the smell around this hotel was like a sewer. After finally finding a parking spot we found kids drinking beer around the hallways which smelled like urine. We finally got to our room and to our surprise, the keys wouldn't work! I made the long walk to the managers office, he supposedly...

The hotel was beautiful inside and out. It's simple to get on and off freeway and to get to the beach. The staff are friendly and helpful. Every problem stayed out of our way. Bring your own shampoo. I loved the bath too. Everything inside our room functioned perfectly. We swam in the pool and it's October. The pool was...

We have stayed exclusively at Motel 6s on our West Coast wandering trip. We have learned that Corporate owned Motel 6s offer little more then being Pet Friendly. Every Corporate M6 had high prices on all there snack and soda machines,and they charge for the most frustratingly worst Wi-Fi ever. We literally spent MORE TIME on the phone with Tec...

Rooms have been updated with wood flooring. Rates are a little high for what you are getting-no shampoo, no coffee maker, no fridge. Has a pool and coffee in lobby. I thought my reservation said they have fridges but they didn't. No pet fee so that is good. We were overlooking the pool and freeway so we heard some noises...

We haven't stayed at a motel 6 for quite a while so we were more than suprised when we checked in to the Hotel Circle property because of a last minute need and full houses at the places we usually stay. The hotel has been remodled in a scandinavian modern motif and it was VERY clean. The carpets (one of...

Well this hasn't been the 1st time we have stayed at this location. Our stay has always been awesome. Office staff is friendly and super helpful....but....this time was less than relaxing.
