The beds were clean but not very comfortable. The main problem is that I was not able to regulate the hot and cold water in the shower. It would get real hot and then suddenly fluctuate to real cold. This was not good.

Cheapest option around

Pros: Cheapest option around
Cons: Housekeeping, AC unit, size of rooms
Location: The town of Salinas is pretty shady, but the adjoining Monterey area is spectacular.
We were visiting the Monterey area for about a week, and the Motel 6 was the cheapest option. The hotel itself seemed to be in pretty good condition. The room was TINY... tough for three people staying a week and trying to live off of groceries (the mini-fridge was EXTRA mini). Housekeeping was great the first couple nights, and got progressively worse after that. Beds were left unmade (or very sloppily made) and the floor was never swept. One night we returned to find that one bed was made (badly) and the other not at all... how does that happen? The AC didn't work, so it was pretty stuffy in there. NOTE - we left early and returned late every day, so never had the energy to bring up these issues with hotel staff at the time. Consequently, I can't speak to whether they would have been resolved or not had we brought it to their attention.

The worst front desk experience EVER

Worst experience ever at A front desk . And very sure the manager Michael is most probably on the take . Wouldn't honor a pre reserved price. Charged me first night because I checked in after 6 ...no prob there and understand) was told night 2 would be full rate because closing the first "in did the 2nd. that was ther deal ! On top of that just RUDE .

Didn't stay and would not

We arrived to a nice staff and hotel in decent condition, however, upon checking to room the sheets and pillow cases were stained, thread bare in some spots, and some hair was on the sheets. We asked for another room, the staff was again kind, but the second room had the same issues with cleanliness. The bathroom door in the 1st room also didn't latch.
