The staff was great, the price I paid was the absolute best for those dates, the location is super convenient.
The rooms are small it felt crowded , the bed and pillows extremely uncomfortable, there's no free WiFi, the room I got had microwave and refrigerator but no hair dryer or coffee maker, there was a gathering of homeless people in the very near by sidewalk the 3 days & nights I was there, I didn't feel safe.
Warm Pool Water
Escondido is in the bottom of a valley therefore it tends to retain heat in the late afternoon. This is an excellent time for a swim at the Motel 6 pool when the sun is at it's hottest, very relaxing. I was shocked at how often I was at the pool alone, great. What few guests came were friendly and respectful.
The receptionist was not very friendly, there were many bugs in our room, and most importantly, the room itself was not clean or comfortable. During our night-long stay, a huge mosquito, large moth, and cockroach shared the room with us to our disgust. The water pressure was very low, the sink was clogged, it was very obvious that the soap had been reused from previous stays, and there were cobwebs around the lights in the bathroom.
I have Bed Bug bites all over the back of my legs. Gross
The room smelled faintly of smoke even though it was non smoking.
...it gets the job done
It was close to places we wanted to go (Stone Brewing, California Center for the Arts). It was a place to rest your head - absolutely nothing fancy or overly comfortable about it.
While located relatively near places we wanted to go, the exact location of the motel was questionable. There were multiple homeless people wandering through parking lot while we checked in. We chose to Uber instead of walk anywhere. Why make people pay for WiFi? Why is there no shampoo in the bathrooms? They clearly attempted to "modernize" the rooms, but with the sparse furnishings and laminate floor it just lacked any semblance of comfort.
It was nice
I liked that we could get multiple keys. Overall, it was nice. The beds and pillows were pretty comfortable. I didn't have trouble sleeping. I liked that the floors are wooden and NOT carpet. There was no cigarette smell which was excellent because most hotels I've stayed at reeked of cigarette smoke. The AC was strong enough to keep the room very cool.
I have nothing bad to say. Just wish there was a mini fridge or something like that. I also noticed that there weren't shampoos when we got in; only bar soap. So I keeping up with the housekeeping a bit more. It's not a big deal but it's just something I noticed :)
The amount of lies the lady told u the fact that the person working at the office was looking at us on the camara all the time when we where headed up to the room and she called us and said that 2 of my friends needed to leave because 6 people could not be in a 4 person room to hang out for a bit.
It was nice for the price.
Staff was polite and friendly. My only complaint was that someone took the batteries out if the remote so I had to walk to the desk to get some. Other than that, the bed was comfortable, although 2 pillows wasn't enough, I still slept well.
A bit scary
It was a good price. The lady in the office were very friendly. The floors were faux wood so they appeared new and clean. Free parking
There were police presence every night. It seems I may have gotten bed bugs from my two nights there. There were only soap no shampoo.
Very basic, but clean
Very clean. Helpful staff.
Very basic, no extras. As another reviewer said, you get what you pay for. It was just fine for what I needed: A place to sleep for the night.
motel 6 gets it done
Easy check-in and check-out, helpful staff, the room decor was modern, I went to sleep and slept hard. It was what I wanted and expected, few extras, and no hassle.
Motel 6 Escondido is located 30 minutes north of San Diego and walking distance to area restaurants. Lake Wohlford and Wild Animal Park are less than 7 miles. Relax is our modern rooms and outdoor pool. Wi-Fi is available in all rooms for free.
