Bad neighborhood, but just down the street from Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Two vehicles were broken into in one night! Housekeeping didn't clean up the glass for at least 24 hours. The window next to the office door was boarded up....hint, hint! Driving up to the property we noticed a huge sign that stated "NEW ROOMS." We had reserved a non-smoking room but when we arrived the room they put us in was obviously smoking! There were three clean ashtrays throughout the room. There was a heavy perfumey smell (Febreeze maybe) in the room. The room was decent but the bathroom door handle was broken so it wouldn't close all the way. The room was reasonably clean, the sheets and pillow cases were all wrinkled as if they had been pulled from the dirty clothes hamper! There were no towels or soap in the room....WHAT???? We asked housekeeping for 4 towels and they gave us three. STINGY!!! When I called the front desk to inquire about the room being smoking vs non-smoking, they stated ashtrays were put in ALL rooms and the non-smoking rooms would have a red X on the ashtrays to indicate no smoking. The perfumey smell was explained to us as a Neutralizer used in all rooms to keep them fresh! Once the smell wore off, the cigarrette smell was obvious. The weather was warm which made the room hot in the evening. How do you get cool? Options: 1) Open the window - oh, wait the windows are doubled and you can't open them! ok, let's try 2) Open the door - oh, wait this neighborhood says KEEP YOUR DOORS CLOSED AND BOLTED AT ALL TIMES!!!.....option 3???) Turn on the air conditioner...what a thought! 2 minutes have passed since I turned on the AC and it's much cooler in the room but the SMELL IS HIDEOUS....what???? Another type of NEUTRALIZER? This one was even worse than the first smell....TURN THAT THING OFF!
Management was just as scary as the neighborhood and the clientele of this cheap motel, so we didn't raise a fuss and went to the room only to sleep!!! I want a refund!!!

  • Liked — It was very close to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
  • Disliked — Being Lied To about the room being non-smoking and not willing to move us.

Okay well our stay started on Friday August 26th and ended August 28th. The only good things about the stay is that we got to check in an hour early and the AC worked. The night of the 26th my wife went to give my kids a bath and found mold all on the top of the shower. ALL ACROSS THE CEILING! Next there was mold around the base board in the bathroom. To make things worse we had no toilet paper, and 2 towels and a handwash towel for the night. When we first entered the room it smelled like smoke, and to boot it had an ashtray in it! We were kept up most of the night by some young men partying in front of our door. Reception for cable is horrible, and the beds were both different. One mattress sunk down to the floor while another one was as hard as a board! The manager comped us $90.00 for our stay and said that because his hotel was so close to the ocean (4 miles away and that would be just the bay anyway!)that is why there was mold and rust. Last but not least when we asked for towels, they said that they did not have enough to go around. The only reason I stayed at this hotel was that everything else was booked. Tom Bodell "We'll Leave the light on for you?" Man just leave it off, so I don't have to see what I am getting myself into. Now that I am home my whole family and myself, have a serious sinus infection, and I beleiev it was because of the mold in the room! Don't stay at motel 6, unless you are looking to stay in a room no better than a cardboard box. Heck thats better!
