Affordable and clean. Comfy beds and nice landscaping outside. Friendly front desk. I wanted to go in the pool but they have water polo set up and for the two days we were here a group of young boys were rambunctiously taking over almost the entire pool with the game. So not only did they monopolize the pool relaxing for every guest. Every other guest can also hear all the noise from it since the pool was in the middle of all the rooms. Huge bummer. I’d recommend they take that down so everyone can enjoy some pool relaxation and not have to be splashed and have loud rowdy teens 24/7. Literally they were in there til close and back in right when it opened. I left early

Pros: Clean room, nice housekeeping staff. Coffee ( a medium dark roast would be my suggestion, better balanced against the provided dark roast) and microwave in the lobby. Walmart, Starbucks, Walgreens, restaurants and grocery stores all nearby/ walking distance.

Cons: $20 for early check in.People are residing there long-term and some; they're quite unsavory. Room doors open, ppl hanging outside the doors, shoes stacked outside the door along with trash which the groundskeepers do try to keep up.

Dogs barking as well as dog poop in the rocks that you will cross over between your car and the room.

The Wi-Fi was broken during this visit. The ice machine was broken and it's upstairs so if you're disabled you're out of luck.

There was a spider in the room as shown in the photos.

My suggestion as I will do would be to stay at another nearby motel 6 such as Simi Valley or Camarillo- much better environment much better and functioning amenities.

We stayed here Saturday and Sunday night. Room 118. No issues initially except we had to pay $20 to checkin 40 minutes early. Never heard of that but ok. TV was great, beds are okay. At night we always have the A/C on and it was super warm in the room. The A/C is like a 1980s unit. It basically has a fan on/off button and then a cool/heat switch. We turned it to cold and it wasnt that cold and the air hardly came out so we didn't feel it that first night. Literally so uncomfortable because it was warm. Tried to open the windows at least but they are locked. Reading past reviews, it seems like there are a lot of homeless around so I'm pretty sure that's why they locked the windows. My fiance took a shower and he said the hottest water temperature was maybe luke warm and he found hair in the towels that did not belong to us. In the morning, because we were on the bottom floor, we heard skateboarders, people walking, talking and even arguing. That was annoying. In the afternoon I called the front desk to see if they could fix our AC or move us. We weren't at the room but they said maintenance would come by. It was a tiny bit cooler in our room when we got there but turned to room temperature shortly after so both nights weren't the best sleep. I read reviews and they basically said all of the units are like this. If you get hot easily or sleep with the A/C, I wouldn't risk it. Was the cheapest hotel around so you get what you pay for.

Great find, Very clean, well maintained daily from the office to maintenance. Polite, knowledgeable experienced management all around. Staff believes in customer service, and they do not disappoint. This location does not have laundry facilities, however, there are local laundry facilities in the area. Just Google Maps for a location after your check-in. Walking you or your pets in the area is a walk score of 90. 500 ft to restaurants. Security is not an issue here. Outside facilities are maintained impeccably. And plenty of hot water for all rooms a plus. This one is a keeper on your travel list.

Terrible experience! Upon checking in, the receptionist told me l will have a rental fridge with $10 per night, but it was a room with a fridge ending up 100 dollars more for three nights.
I asked him to change it then he said l need to talk to the manager who came in the last night. She didn’t do anything. Not even an apology!
The ice machines were out of order, l could have stayed in much better place if it was that price. I will never use motel 6 group again.

I’ve stayed in a number of budget hotels so aware you get very basic rooms with not much in amenities. We chose this because the reviews on the whole are ok and it looks great from the outside and the location is good. What we weren’t prepared for was to pay almost $100 for the worst nights sleep in a decade. The bed was lumpy with only 3 pillows between 2 of us. We got woken at 3am by a half dressed man stood outside the window talking loudly on his phone, then a couple screaming and shouting next door. The icing on the cake though was getting up to find the floor and bed were teeming with tiny insects. They were swarming into my suitcase at one point. This prompted a quick get away. I reported it to the desk and he did write something on a clipboard but there was no concern or apology, which suggests it’s a common theme. Needless to say we won’t be darkening the door of any Motel 6 establishments again!!

Our company have stayed in several Motel 6 locations over the past few years both in Canada and the USA and enjoyed them but this location at Thousand Oaks must be worst of the worst. Intended to stay here as we had previously several years ago and it was fine, but never ever again, bad, very bad in fact as well as rundown inside and out. Staff are all rude and unhelpful too.

We saw several piles of …. what we assumed was from big dogs, outside the motel and also in car park, we were horrified to find out from individuals checking out that a homeless shelter is nearby!!! yuk yuk

Look elsewhere as it’s worth a few more bucks to enjoy your stay.
Would never stay here again at this Thousands Oaks location, we have notified our organization, friends and family too.

Stayed 4 nights. Was near freezing at night (ice on car windshield). No heat in room first two nights. When mentioned to staff after the first night they couldn't fix or find an extra blanket (in a hotel with maybe 100 rooms). After second night the manager had maintenance come and fixed the issue in 30 seconds. She offered a $20 discount for the inconvenience.
Also no shampoo which we hadn't brought because every hotel provides shampoo, or so I thought.
Bed not very comfortable.
Very low water pressure.
Otherwise fine. Reasonably quiet and clean.

Have generally had good luck with Motel 6 but not this time.

This hotel was probably only $20 cheaper than anything else in the area. Dirty bathroom and vanity, dirt and hair found on sheets. Towels were probably a thread count of 2. No complimentary breakfast and no refrigerator. The only thing this hotel afforded was a very nice and helpful receptionist.

Could write quite a book about why the one stars have been worse for wear at this property and especially being there is no Security at all...never again. If anybody else remembers there was a night there was a horrible argument that sounded like gunshots. No maid service or towels. Not the best aea either and be careful with the speeding drivers both directions on Newbury. Could say alot more but keep your stay brief. Dogs not on leashes and poop everywhere, as in many public places, which is sad. No cameras; bear that in mind. I also don't like staff calling out my room number but alot of hotels do that. Never booked more than 2 days here, justifiably. There were some plusses about this place but they seemed to be disappearing. Ice was highly unreliable and many times just one machine had ice. Another guest said something that made us very ill at ease around April. I just like to warn others, but you may feel fine staying there. No pet or parking fees when we were there. Staff still do a great job, considering, but if you have a better lodging option try to invest in it.
