Hey, It's a Motel 6, I knew what I was getting into. Had to find a place last minute closest to my job site and this was the winner. The check in staff was very nice. The room was clean. However, it reeked like cigarette smoke, the AC barely worked and the remote to the tv was broke. I didn't even bother requesting a replacement. Oh yeah, the mattress sucked. I just needed a place to sleep and grab a shower in the morning. My sleep was interrupted by some sort of crazy person screaming outside my window at 4 am. Avoid this place if you can.

We were looking for something quick, easy and cheap to stay for one night. Usually Motel 6 is fine, but this one was really bad. Dirty, lights didn’t work, only the fan worked (no a/c). If it wasn’t for the front desk clerk who was amazing and friendly, I would have given one star.

I had a reservation made 2 months before my arrival in La Mesa. The reservation was confirmed by Expedia 2 days before my arrival. On the day of my arrival at the hotel, I was told that the reservation was not valid because it was for 22 nights whereas the policy of the hotel allows reaervations no longer than 21 nights. I tried to call Expedia, but nobody could help me. The hotel refused service to me for the first night. I was forced to find a different accomodation for the first night and then I made a new reservation at the same hotel for 21 nights paying 500 more dollars.
