The front desk is so rude it’s a motel ran by young messy Latinos and Latina’s. Why can’t motel 6 stay as motel 6 with the typical Indian guy in the front minding his business. The only nice people is the cleaning crew. THE STAFF DOES NOT RESIDE IN THE AREA AND IS VERY OBVIOUS.

The Manager has BEYOND the BEST team working for her. The Manager is ALWAYS going ABOVE & BEYOND to assure that ALL her guests are COMPLETELY taken care. PIA is a VERY STRONG part of this team. PIA is ALWAYS willing to help a guest to a fellow Co Worker with any task thrown her way. Our Ms Gnocchi will vouch for her all day long. MONICA is another VERY STRONG part of this team. She is always going ABOVE & BEYOND to get done whatever task needs to be completed. YOUSSEFF is our shy yet goofy guy who will make you smile and laugh even on a day when you are not having it. He will be GREATLY MISSED THE MANAGER, PIA & MONICA have saved us on a couple of occasions when we were in a desperate way in need of help. We both refer to ALL three of them as our GUARDIAN ANGELS. WE ARE SO GRATEFUL AND BEYOND BLESSED TO HAVE THEM HERE AND BECAUSE OF THEM IS WHY WE STAY HERE & NO WHERE ELSE SINCERELY, ROBERTO, JENNIFER & MS. GNOCCHI HERNANDEZ 🐾🙏😇🤗🤗🐾

While Motel 6 is not expected to be luxury, there is no excuse for unclean, dirty or poor customer service. We stayed here twice. First time was “ok” but much of property looked flawed. Second time, we were given an unclean room and then when we complained, we had great difficulty trying to get a different room with a combative night clerk. Eventually at 3am, we ended up in another room, which was also unclean. We tried to speak to manager the next day but were told he was unavailable until afternoon. We left messages and sent an email with no response. We are demanding a refund. We regret staying here and only did so thinking we just wanted a room to sleep for a few hours before travel. It was a mistake. Both Motel 6’s corporate parent and local city code inspectors should not tolerate these conditions.

My room was clean, and the maids were respectful and courteous. The front desk was very kind and helpful trying to accommodate my stay (Janet and Miriam). This place is perfect for an overnight stay in Orange County. Airport is close by.

First of all the rooms were very outdated and gross. They were clean-ish, but not to my standards. The pool was unusable. Ducks had taken over the entire area pooping everywhere including inside the hot tub! Gag! My poor kids couldn't swim to let off energy which was hectic. I'm glad I only had to endure 1 night. I couldn't even shower without using my flip flops and there was hair on the walls!!!! Do not stay here. Ask to see the rooms first and inspect the pool area. Not happy with my experience.

I don't often stay at Motel 6, but I had business in the area, was traveling alone, and needed a room for one night. I made a reservation at this property on 3/17/2016 and was quoted a rate of 82.13. I was e-mailed a confirmation of this amount on official Motel 6 letterhead, which I brought with me to the property. On arrival, the desk clerk, Tony Kais, attempted to charge me more. I politely informed him that my reservation, including tax, was for the amount of 82.13. I then showed him the official reservation, and he said that he would charge me $84, because I was "being difficult." In fact, I was not being difficult (please see my other reviews; it should be evident that I am not "difficult" with hotels or their staff), I was simply providing him with evidence that he was wrong, and that he was attempting to overcharge me. I then said that I would pay him the $84, and asked for a receipt. At this point, HE RAISED THE PRICE TO NINETY-THREE DOLLARS, and refused to give a receipt. I left the property and immediately brought the matter to the attention to the manager of the property, David Castro, who ignored my telephone calls. I sent Mr. Castro TWO CERTIFIED LETTERS, one dated April 18, 2016, and one dated May 18, 2017. Both provided evidence that Mr. Kais had committed extortion and had attempted to commit consumer fraud. Mr. Castro did not respond to either one. I visited the property in an attempt to speak with Mr. Castro directly, and was informed that Mr. Castro "wasn't available." It begs the question as to whom is in on what. I have contacted Motel 6 corporate on numerous occasions. The only action they took was to provide me with gift certificates for two free stays, which is nice I suppose, but doesn't address the problem: they have a rogue property manager that sanctions criminal activity at this property. The only good thing about this situation was that, because I left, I was not subjected to the horrible experiences so many others have described here. Prospective guests, stay here at your substantial risk.

I had business in Irvine for 1 day and just needed a bed for 1 night. It is what it is Motel 6. Pretty much what I expected. The room was relatively clean, some hairs still in the shower and on the floor. A little bit of a musty smell in the room. Basic room, good size, bed, pillows, tv and internet all good. The front desk staff were fantastic, very helpful with directions and printouts. I also needed some scissors and tape for a parcel I had to post. More than helpful with that. It did the job.
