The room was clean if rather pricey ,but pricey is normal for summer in Monterey. It is conveniently located next to a CVS pharmacy. The area is rather sketchy, as there is an adult bookstore a few doors away, and some unstable people wandering around. In fact, I was afraid to use the microwave after dark because it meant walking across a parking lot to the laundry. There are no microwaves or coffee makers in rooms, so using the common microwave is the only way to heat water. We stayed 3 nights and the interior of the microwave had the same burned food the entire time. It was never cleaned.
I stayed at this motel on a Friday and Saturday night and the bathroom toilet didn’t work for 2 nights. Repairman said it was fine! I complained to manager Maria and when I left I told her it STILL did NOT flush! After I left she called me and apologized. She said she was sending me a one night free stay in any Motel 6, to use ANY day of the week. I booked another stay a few weeks later and when I handed her the gift certificate (that she signed) she informed me that I could not use it because the “computer” wasn’t accepting it! WHAT TOTAL BS this was! She is a liar and she can NOT be trusted! Besides...the walls are very thin and you can hear everything. The beds are small and only like 18” between beds. No blow dryers, no shampoo, no nothing extra but a cheap bar of soap! I HIGHLY suggest a hotel were honest people work! …
I always stay in Motel 6, because I have 2 larger dogs(44 lbs and 90 lbs) but they are extremely well behaved. I have stayed at multiple locations throughout southern ca. After I paid, the older hispanic woman working there asked me what “brand” my dogs were. I was confused by the term brand. My dogs are part pitbull, but mutts overall. Then she told me there are no big dogs allowed. I traveled 800+ miles and booked my room stating I had 2 dogs. The size or breed of my dogs have NEVER come into question before. I explained this and then she said it was because it was a small property. Once she saw me getting upset, she said nevermind. I saw big dogs all over the motel. I felt unwelcomed and discriminated against. I will not be back to this one.
This is a five star Motel 6 compared to other Motel 6s. Got a three not because it was bad but because it is a Motel 6. Would I stay there again absolutely yes. It is what it is. Smallish room, small and rough towels but like it said what do you expect? So if you’re looking for a budget hotel this is the place. Plus right next to fairgrounds, and airport but the planes weren’t a bother. Friendly staff and there is a Denny’s across the street.
Rooms are clean; newly renovated. Location nearby the highway - good for a stopover. Check-in simple, quick and friendly. No breakfast served, but coffee is free of charge! Would stay there one more time.
