This Motel 6 is probably the safest Motel 6 in Santa Fe, possibly second safest to the one downtown. The other ones are horror stories waiting to happen. This one is close, but not that bad. The halls do smell heavily of smoke, since the smoking rooms are on the ground floor, and there's seemingly no air filtration system in...

This place is just a nightmare. Glad we arrived late and left early. Sheets were stained and cigarette burn holes. Hallways had been smeared in what looked like feces. Tv looked 25 years old . Only second time in a motel 6 , and it will be the last. The staff was friendly, but had to be embarrassed to work...

Nice, new clean rooms with good flat screen TV and bed. More than nice for the price. I would recommend highly.. Good staff at front desk...did have a key problem first nite but they re-keyed for me..good location as on main drag and only about 3 miles from downtown plaza.

Coming into Santa Fe Memorial Day weekend (what were we thinking), we had no choices, but consoled ourselves that we have had ok luck with Motel 6 in the past. They're the places you stay when you're blazing through town and don't spend much time in the room anyway, and are usually just fine. NOT this one. The carpets have...

After having called ahead to alert them to the fact that I would be arriving late, I was reassured that my room would be waiting. Upon arrival, there were the guys in the lobby, all of them seemingly doing nothing. As it turns out, one of them was the clerk. After the payment and paperwork, we received our keys. The...

Upon arrival at this hotel we noticed that it looked run down. When we walked in the lobby we knew something was off when we saw three breakfast tables at a hotel that doesn't serve breakfast. After venturing down the hallway we noticed the Nickelodeon style walls and nasty carpet that we're sure countless rats have ran across. After parking...

Run away from this place. The staff at the front desk acted like it was a real bother to stop talking on their cell phones long enough to check us in. The place smelled of stale cigarette smoke everywhere. No elevator. Paper-thin walls. Generally run down appearance through out the hotel.Thank goodness it was only one night!

My family and I stayed at the Motel 6 Central, in Santa Fe NM, on August 10th, 2015. We have stayed at literally, dozens of Motel Sixes all around the country without indecent for many years, and were expecting the same. It was, by far, the worst Motel stay of our lives, bar none. The Motel was in a state...

When I travel by myself, I usually stay at Motel 6. I don't come for the ambience; I come to sleep. As their spokesman Tom Bodett says, "When your eyes are closed, all the rooms look the same." Unfortunately, what happened when my eyes weren't closed was the problem. I reserved a "quiet, upstairs" room with microwave and fridge. The...
