Room had a heavy smell of tobacco smoke. But since we were just staying overnight for only several hours we just decided to deal with it rather than have to change rooms. We should’ve changed rooms because what we discovered the next morning AFTER sleeping in the bed was that there was doodoo (fecal) stains on the bed sheets under the covers! My wife had already slept at least partially on it since it was in her side... the smell wasn’t totally apparent as I had to get pretty close to figure out that it was doodoo. It looked as if the people before tried to clean it up and house keeping didn’t change out the linens and just decided to “cover it up”, literally... We were sooooo upset. My wife just about lost it! The staff was very helpful and friendly but needless to say, I don’t think we’ll ever be staying at a Motel 6 in the future and I guess we’ll always be checking the sheets before getting in them no matter where we stay...

Close to I-5 Freeway. The Carlsbad State Beach & Legoland are <2 miles away. Costco, Carlsbad Premium Outlet Stores, several other stores of all kinds,, multiple used car dealerships, many American & Ethnic restaurants in all price ranges (including fast food chains), gas stations & convenience stores are all located within 0.2 - 2 miles away. There are many things to do in Carlsbad for all ages. Too many things to list here. As for the motel, the front office staff I dealt with greeted me with a warm, genuine smile. The ladies were pleasant, helpful and courteous...but very professional as well. Housekeeping staff made sure all my special requests were ready in my room by the time I arrived to check-in. Upon entering my room, I could see it was clean. Compared to the other 2 Motel 6's Carlsbad, CA locations, Motel 6 Carlsbad East is my preferred location in Carlsbad. I found no maintenance issues and could see the room was recently painted & the floors recently waxed and sealed. My overall experience was very good. The only drawback is that the bed wasn't the most comfortable and could use a new mattress. I was assured that they are continuing to update rooms and new mattresses will replace the old ones as they start to arrive.
