Save your money

This place is a dump. There are sketchy people who live here. This is not a place for tourist and visitors. My pillowcases and towels were filthy. The rooms are disgusting and the walls are filthy. This is NOT Mission Valley! Please do not go here! The room next to me reaks of marijuana for the 48 hours I was forced to spend there. I wouldn't recommend this place to a dog!

Business stay very dissatisfied

Pros: Price and location
Cons: Following through on guest request/hot water
Working on a construction project in the area and stayed for 3 nights. Requested a microwave and fridge prior to arrival. Upon check in was assured microwave would be brought up, never came. Two of the 3 days there no hot water in room. Will never consider this place again..

Roach infested

The room looked clean but I was afraid to walk across the floor without shoes for fear of stepping on a roach. We stayed two nights. I must of killed a dozen roaches. We tried using the heater but after 20 minutes it would give out a bad burning oder. We tried using it twice. I was told the smell would go away, if I ran it long enough. The smell never went away.We will not be going back.

Clean & quiet room

Pros: Clean, Quiet, Low Cost
Motel 6 can be hit or miss, but this one was surprisingly good. The room was clean and not shabby. And even though the motel sits very close to the freeway, they must have very good insulation, since it was relatively quiet and I slept well. Given the high cost of rooms in Hotel Circle in Mission Valley, this is a good, economical alternative without needing to sacrifice your standards too much.

OK

Pros: Room was clean, but the bed spread had seen better days. Sheets looked fine.
Cons: They should replace the bed spreads (if my room was any indication of general condition of their bedding).
Location: Not a great location. In between a light rail system and the freeway.
Not the best feeling checking in as there were some homeless people around the hotel. It is a lower end hotel chain, so I hadn't expected too much. If you're looking for a cheap place to stay and aren't too concerned about location, this is fine.

Terrible

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Cleanliness and odor of the room.
Room smelled gross, did look clean at all... There was hair on and under the sheets, and there were splatter marks on the wall from something (who knows what). Very uncomfortable stay, and a terrible nights sleep.
