When we arrived, I was told that I had reserved a Accessible room (which I had not; the app did not provide that as an option). I asked if there was a non-Accessible room available, which there was not. In order to provide sufficient space for a wheelchair, almost all furniture in the room had been removed; nightstand, dresser. We could sit in the bed, or one chair. Looking around the room, we found it dirty; baseboards, under sink all needed a good cleaning. Bed seemed to be a full-sized, rather than the Queen we had reserved (this might have been due to the sizing issue above - and to be fair, several years ago there was a guy running up and down California suing small businesses for failing to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, which led a lot of businesses to hastily bring themselves into compliance.) Overall, the staff was nice, but the lodgings left something to be desired. Perhaps it was just the Accessible part, but it left me disappointed with the facility.

We came back to Ventura county for a family fundraiser. Only place in the area with availability was this motel 6. When we checked in and looked at the room it was cozy and nice looking. We left our luggage and went to our event. When we came back to the room it looked nice still. As we were getting ready to go to sleep the roaches came out of the walls it was on four or five that we seen but nonetheless we did not want to pay for their stay in our room. The room got comp for our overnight stay but we will not go back their again.

Ashley and Daniel are superb people. I was in need of some human kindness and received it today at the Johnson Dr, Ventura, CA Motel 6. I’m a regular at Motel 6 because I travel with two dogs and I know what to expect. So, my 5 star rating is based on my best experience at Motel 6 and 1 star is my worst experience at Motel 6. Motel 6 is an average place to lodge. If you require more, simply pay for an expensive room. What can make a big difference is staff. Ashley and Daniel are such staff people. They still don’t know this but I have a medical condition right now that makes me sensitive to sun and heat and we’re in a record heat wave. Furthermore, I slipped and fell on wet stairs at the beach and came down hard on my tailbone. I just needed AC and a bed. I showed early for the reservation and asked if I could enter the room early too. I’m not a demanding person so if they said it wasn’t possible I can accept that. Ashley and Daniel must’ve noticed I wasn’t feeling well because I didn’t mention it to them like I said above. Nevertheless, they switched me to a room that was available at no charge and even called me in the room to check if everything was ok. I’m appreciative of the little act of humanity they offered me today. Being able to share my experience with you makes me feel better too!

Very average stay. Room adequate but our friends had a nightmare with poor soundproofing. They heard the traffic all night plus the neighbours having sex for ages and ordering a pizza at 3am. Plus side the manager Ramon handled their complaint well and they got a partial refund.

Simple and basic room, no frills but very clean. It's next to the freeway but quiet with only one way in or out. Clean swimming pool and spa Very polite staff that had our reservations ready for us. Lowest prices in town.

Typical Motel 6. Its a little hard to get to. Its oddly shaped including the building so sometimes its hard to find your room. It is only good if you need to sleep, if you need something more then look for another hotel.

I think that this is not as bad as all the reviews suggest. My room 134 was clean and looked recently renovated and everything works. Bed was good for the price. Walls are not as soundproof as masonry construction but muted TV sounds heard. When I asked the staff where to eat locally they said lots of restaurant other side of the intersection which was a 5 minute walk away. I found really good Thai food. Pool and hot tub were working. Good budget nights sleep. Only free coffee offered but it was from a latte machine and quite tasty. No fridge or microwave.

Traveling home from a wonderful weekend away in our motorhome, unfortunately it broke down just north of Ventura California. We were towed into town for an RV repair place, and after it was decided they probably wouldn't be able to fix it Traveling home from a weekend getaway in our motorhome just north of Ventura California, and unfortunately it broke down and we had to be towed into Ventura to a motorhome repair shop . After determining that would not be repaired that gay, we booked a room with the nearby Motel 6 that was within walking distance of the RV lot. We had our dog with us so of course we had to go with a pet friendly hotel. We have stayed at several Motel 6's over the years, and do not ever expect anything other than a basic room that's clean and affordable. The room itself was nicely redone. Laminate floors. Decent bedding with a traditional not very nice towels. But that was all fine. We had requested a room in a quiet part of the hotel, and the room Three Doors Down from us had occupants that were loud, yelling, threatening, and basically no one we wanted to be near. There also was construction going on at the hotel that was very loud. I called the front desk and they gratefully moved us to another room. He told me it was an upgrade but no charge. We move to the new room, spent the night, and the next morning about 10, received a call that the motorhome was not going to be repaired for a couple days , so we rented a car and drove home that day. When we checked out we were not given a printed invoice, we simply gave them the keys at the front desk and our room number. Always make sure you get a printed invoice of your room charges. We ended up being charged for the upgrade to the additional room that they moved us to even after they said there was no charge, and it took another day of phone calling up there to get this problem solved. They did eventually acknowledge it was their error and they remove the charge for my credit card. End of story, except that the hotel exterior is in dire need of a good power washing. It's really nasty.

Don't stay here. The staff is aweful, if you complain about anything they kick you out and put you on a DNR list. It is the worst Motel 6 I have ever been to. I let them know that I found cockroaches in my room and within two days they refused to rent to me. They made me move all my belongings out into the parking lot while I waited for a downstairs room that I was promised when I first got there. It was a nightmare. I did end up getting a comped room for one night because of the vermin, but I should have moved when I first got the feeling that they were aweful. The housekeepers go in your room and rummage through your things on the days you say no service. I asked for no service and came back to my room looking like a robber came in there and a made up bed. Also when you say no service, about three different people will bangon your door over the course of the day asking if you want service. If you expect to sleep......don't stay here....cockroaches running across your face in the bed and nosey, rude and sticky handed staff.

We didn't have a room for the night and all the hotel rooms were booked in the area that we wanted to stay in. However, thanks to Christina Garcia not only did she tell us of another motel 6 to stay in, she called ahead and secured a room for us. This was a huge help to us since we were traveling so far from home and didn't know the area. We appreciate her so much and reaching out to a sister Motel 6 to secure us a room for the night.
