Hotel is in a great spot, walking distance to restaurants. Free parking even though it's in downtown.
Aircon wasn't working so the room was a little warm. Minimal amenities provided.
The sheets were not washed and there was blood stains on the sheets I have never stayed in a room that hadnt washed their sheets before or atleast not soo obvious...second thought I guess this is expected from a Motel 6 ....the pictures sure make it seem good but its to good to be true
A good place to everywhere.
location. free parking. within walking distance of bars and restaurants in the gaslamp district
Location is top-notch, rooms are clean and updated, staff is personable and helpful, unbeatable value, parking included with stay
No continental breakfast, bed could be more comfortable, elevator was a little sketchy and broke the last day of our visit
It is a bit of a hike from the Convention Center, less than a mile, but the walk is interesting through the gaslight quarter and not dangerous. Clean, pleasant room with no view at all, but comfortable, reliably quiet as most Motel 6 hotels are.
Elevator was broken. - They were fixing it, so not a real problem, but worrisome.
Internet was not free of charge and the connection was terrible!
Great location near downtown San Diego. The cancellation policy is great too.
The room interior is a bit austere.
The towel are small
It's really dirty and wifi was so slow
No stairs avail for excercise. No pool.
Changed the location from the other Motel6, but, didn't have the 2 double beds where the original one have.
Having one double bed instead of two.
- Helpful staff - Good location - Free parking
- Internet cost $3/day and is really really slow (when works...)
I was really pleasantly surprised by this Motel 6. I was initially somewhat hesitant to stay here due to reviews complaining of noise and lack of safety and cleanliness, but I found this motel to be quiet, safe, and very clean (I stayed for 5 nights). The beds and pillows are very comfortable. The manager was great - she let me see a room before I checked in, gave me a map and told me how to get to my conference, and comped my first day of wifi. The motel is located in a nice part of town, walking distance to Little Italy, the downtown area, and the trolley line. Yes, there are some homeless people and the streets smell, but that seems to be the case in all of downtown San Diego. Overall, I was very pleased with my stay here, and would stay here again.
My only complaint is the wifi. For the first two days of my stay the wifi worked fine and the signal strength was good - I was able to use Skype with no problems. However, on the third day, the wifi stopped working on my computer, and I have no idea why. I called Motel 6 tech support, but they couldn't figure out how to fix the problem. The front desk gave me a refund, but I was left without internet access for the last 3 days of my stay. As I was in town for a conference, this was really inconvenient - I had to bring my laptop with me to the conference in order to send emails. If they are going to charge for wifi, they should at least make sure it works, or provide a LAN cable for backup.

Quality of Linen Water Pressure
Although the lobby was full of travelers, the personnel at the front desk managed fo check in everyone quickly and professionally.
Wasn't aware of second parking area until the day I left.
Location, staff, laundry on site.
Wi-fi didn't work & traffic noise at night
The location near Little Italy and transportation was very good. The area around the motel has improved since I was last there about five years ago. It felt a lot safer walking around. I had a room on the fourth floor and found it to be reasonably quiet.
The shower needed a bathmat plus a safety bar. Wifi was not free.
Tv Room size
Spring bed Cockroaches inside room only one or two
Bed and pillows
internet was poor
we arrived at 9.30 pm and our room (even if we had the reservation from booking.com) wasnt available, because we arrived "to late" and the hotel couldn't charge my credit card. But, we chose via booking, that we wanted to pay cash, so there is no reason, that they try to charge my credit card, but they did and since this didnt work, they sold that room to another person and late at night we had no place to stay.. (i described that situation booking and they really apologized for that situation and sent me a voucher, but it was the hotel's fault. So, Thanks Booking! And to the hotel: never, never, never! Think about it, if you would like to support a hotel which maximizes profit in such a way!...it was late at night, i had a reservation and no room....)
