We stay in this Motel only because we could keep out pet with us. It was a quick off of interstate 40 and back on the next morning. Very dirty hotel. It smelled and the people mulling around after dark made us all very nervous to stay. The one good thing I can say is the bed was one of... More

I only realized this is a Motel 6 after booking through Trip Advisor. I would have not booked if I had realized it was not La Quinta. There is a Starbucks across the street so I decided to stay. After checking in, I parked in front of the stairs to my room. I noticed several men peeking around two different... More

Rates at the Motel 6 at 2424 San Mateo (which must have formerly been a LaQuinta) were great. Rooms were very clean, no bugs, and office staff very helpful. Will stay there on our next visit this year

I don't have high expectations. I just wanted a clean hotel to crash for the evening. I generally have no problem at all with Motel 6. You know you're getting a no frills hotel. But it's obvious that the owners have chosen not to keep up on the maintenance. There were many holes in the wall with spackle that needed... More

Driving up to this Inn I was immediatelt disappointed. This hotel was next door to a Motel 6 and 5 other motels/hotels. It felt crowded. In addition, the street leading up to the entrance was packed with 18 wheelers and I felt closed in just getting there. Outside it was noisey, and I was very disappointed in the room. The... More
