The price comes from being downtown (One night stay for a hockey game) and while it did the job, it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. The bathroom set up was a bit odd with the sink looking like a kitchen sink outside.

My laptop was stolen out of my room. The police saw in the cameras the only people in and out of the room was the staff. The Hotel management didn't care, didn't want to hear it or help me. It was a fight to get recognized. Don't stay at Motel 6 your stuff isn't safe. If you wanted to do...

Glad to find no carpeting in the room, that has been remodeled with modern furniture including: Refrigerator, microwave, tv. No hairdryer or coffee pot. No breakfast making this not the best value. But then " location, location, location!"

Nice, clean room with a nook to eat/work at. Basic and somewhat modern for what I envisioned at a Motel 6. Perhaps, the greatest attribute is the neighborhood and the "walkability." we felt like we lived in the neighborhood and had access to almost any food and general store you could need.

I Stayed a very short 1 night here. I felt slightly overpriced but considering the proximity to Diridon station, this place is worth a try. A breakfast would have been wonderful. No breakfast is bit of surprise.I would come back again if breakfast is served.

We reserved a 6-day stay during a conference, because of the location. This was a terrible mistake - fortunately we were able to leave without penalty (though we paid for the nights we stayed). Cockroaches in increasing numbers : by day 3 (when we fled) they were on the floor, curtains, bathroom mirror.... But quite beyond the insects, the overall...

Unfortunately, we had to stay in San Jose near Super Bowl time and the prices at all the hotels in the area were were scandalously doubled. We did find a room at this Motel 6 at the Convention Center for a relatively good price and it was quite acceptable. The room was Hotel 6 size (small) but comfortable and clean.
