All Motel 6's have had an upgrade to look more clean, sleek and modern; laminate floors, the bedding and decor is updated and the bathrooms have new showers and sleek vessel sinks and black counter-tops. Your accommodations here are the bare minimum for the low price: beds, desk, TV, luggage rack. The rooms are also REALLY small, but that's ok. There is no continental breakfast or coffee offered, but there are some vending machines for snacks and soft drinks next to the lobby.
This particular Motel 6 was OK and quiet even though it was next to the freeway and it had a nice, clean looking outdoor pool (that we didn't use). The unit we were in had no bugs, and the sheets and pillow-cases were very clean and the non-smoking room smelled good. The shower was nice and the beds were very firm and I thought they were comfortable (though spouse thought they were way too firm and had the "worst nights of sleep ever")
Even though the room was clean, it did have a couple cosmetic and house-keeping issues: the wall paint had been scuffed off in places, part of the counter had not been wiped down and the comforters had some stains on them, and a light was burned out.
Things you should know: you get one wash-cloth even in a double room and there is a fee for the wi-fi. In an era when even really cheap motels have free wi-fi, that was a bit of surprise. We had good cell phone coverage here so that wasn't an issue.
