Not bad, but they charge significant extra for Wifi (who does that?) and the wifi is only for *one* device, and then it doesn't work in the morning. Trying to squeeze every penny? It wasn't *that* cheap. I'd go somewhere else.

When we first entered the room at check in, the floor felt gritty with dirt, but we were willing to overlook that, as we were exhausted from our work day. However, on our fourth night stay my wife was awakened with tiny black bugs on her pillow, neck & chest. We felt it was too late into the night to...

My friend and I stayed at this motel for 3 nights while attending the Desert Trip music festival in nearby Indio. The motel was clean and the location right off the 10 freeway was very convenient. It was about 9 miles to the venue, and the drive was easy. It suited our needs and the price was right. We used...

We stopped here after being on the road a while. Although not what we normally like, it was clean. The towels were so thin, wish there was a Walmart would have bought a new towel and washcloth, (they only gave you 1 washcloth, I guess we were suppose to share. Only one nightstand even though we had a queen. Bathroom...

Have you ever carried luggage to upstairs room and been frustrated to learn key doesn't work and need to go all the way back downstairs to get new key? Well this happened to us...

I stayed here before though this time, was not given a groundfloor, handicapped room ( and I'm not that handicapped! A lovely, quiet single, with queen bed, non-smoking, non-carpeted flooring. Tasteful contemporary, Ikea-style furnishings. Bed was comfortable; heat & fan amazingly quiet.Toward the back is away from I-10 so a good choice..

We had stayed here before on our way to Arizona. When we checked in our room we noticed that it was updated with a flat screen TV, beds and room decor. After our previous stay we had written a review about how outdated the room was. Thank you Motel 6 for reading reviews from customers. We will definitely stay again.
