Motel 6 History

Motel 6 was founded by William Becker and Paul Greene in Santa Barbara, California in 1962.

The partners wanted to build motels with bargain rates and decided on the rate of $6 per night; a rate which would cover building costs, land leases, and janitorial supplies. This $6 rate is the reason for the name “Motel 6.”

To cut costs the brand offered coin-operated black and white television sets instead of the free color televisions offered at more upscale hotels. Motel 6 also had no on-site dining, a model that continues today.

Throughout the 1960′s the Motel 6 model became more popular and the company began to to take a small market share away from bigger chains.

By 1980 Motel 6 had 300 locations.

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts bought Motel 6 in 1985 and began to move it away from the no-frills approach.

French-based Accor bought the company in 1990 and began franchising in 1994 in order to expand more quickly

In 2000, Motel 6 expanded internationally for the first time with a location in Ontario, Canada.

The Blackstone Group bought the motel chain in 2012 for $1.9 billion.

Today Motel 6 has more than 1,000 locations in the United States and Canada. Motel 6 also operates extended-stay hotel chain Studio 6, which has about 60 locations.

OUTSTANDING! My stay at the Motel 6 in Hemet, CA can be described in 1 word…. OUTSTANDING! The rooms – CLEAN. The office staff (Cindy and others) – FRIENDLY and HELPFUL. The cleaning staff (Jana and others) – PERFECTIONISTS. The ground keepers – GREAT AT THEIR JOBS. I would recommend this motel to any and everyone! Thank you Motel 6 for the Hemet, CA location!

Did you know that Motel 6 keeps a Richard Nixon-like “secret” Do Not Rent list?
As a professional fisherman, I stay at Motel 6′s at least once a month, usually in California, but sometimes other states.
I am 61 years old, NEVER party, NEVER have guests; I go to bed early, and get up early to go fishing.
I received a confirmed reservation at the Vallejo, CA, Fairgrounds East, location #1050 for June 30 and July 1, and stay at this location about 3 or 4 times a year, last time in mid April.
Arriving at the location around 11 PM on June 30, the desk clerk gave me the evil eye, and I was shocked and dismayed to learn that I am on the “Do Not Rent” list, because I “Caused a Disturbance” during my April stay.
No doubt somebody caused a disturbance during my stay, but it wasn’t me!
Mistakes can be made, but they let you make a reservation, get hundreds of miles from home on a holiday weekend with all hotels full, then late at night tell you to get lost.
Sleeping in your car is no fun.

were about to stay at Motel 6 in Lafayette LA until we checked the room. This place is a terrible representation of this chain, room was filthy, bed lumpy, (was not about to check under the covers) air conditioner was bare with no covers at all. Many people loitering outside which gave us a terrible feeling for our security at this location and so requested our money back. I don’t no why this chain does’nt run inspections on their premises as this has certainly left us with a very bad impression.

this week should’ve been the best weekend. instead it was the WORSE. my children do AAU track and was there for the National Qualyfier to go the Jr Olympics. he’s 11 she’s 9. the room APPEARED to be clean upon initial inspection. They have a equipment gym room they must be upened with a guest key. someone rigged the door with a screwbso it was accessible at all times. we let our kids play outside not knowing this room was open. moments later people are screaming my child had abrasions and blood coming from her face to her sides and back! the owner manager didn’t think it was a issue I called the police and paramedics. I had to pay out of pocket because they didn’t accept out insurance. to make matters worse i go to the store to get clean wrapping to find they switched beds. the person watching them said it was TWO ROACHES in the bed. the next morning they were suppose to do a wake up call at 6 we had to be At thec track by 715 the phone did not work and sincevwevwas running late I forgot to take my do not disturb sign off the front of the door housekeeping didn’t vlea5n the room. I sent to the manager and told him I needed a phone he argued with me and I never got one he finally sent a housekeeping but I had already asked a friendly housekeeper to do my room. the list can go on on I have videos and pictures. a affordable price isn’t worth your child’s life or basic sanitary conditions. I was told it takes 30 days for them to do a investigation ….really???? avid MOTEL 6 2674 PRUDEN DRIVE SUFFOLK. VA. IT SITS RIGHT OFF THE HIGHWAY

Why do you hire people who can not speak English or understand when you speak to them. I think INS needs to get involved with the people who work for Motel 6. I have stayed at your motel off and on for a couple of years and have seen and experienced alot of activity. I take kimo treatments in albq.n.m. and drive over 200 miles to take them. It is cheap for me to stay over nite cause I get sick from my treatments that I got to rest. The only thing I have ever got from you is I am sorry but we are not responsible for my car getting destroyed and my dog riding from a fire started in a vehicle that burned 4 rooms and damaged a few others mine included. My car was damaged and got fined for parts falling off on the inter state 40 . They wouldn’t let me move my car until the fire was put out. The heat melted the rubber and windshield wipers and cracked the plastic bumpers which fell apart on my way home. My dog a Pomeranian got sick from the smoke and traumatized from the windows blowing out in my room I buried my companion 2months after this incident. My life has been sadden beyond words and I haven’t found another dog to replace her she comforted me and made living with cancer easier. I had to miss many treatments cause my car was not road worthy to drive and cost me to much money to repair. But your response was my insurance had to fix it liability doesn’t cover the damages from fire. So I had to pay fines for littering and driving an unsafe car on the highways it ended up in a wreaking yard for savaged parts. Then I had to pay vet bills for my companion then I buried her.that was one of the saddest days of my life it was like loosing a family member. When that fire happen at your motel on I 25 south in albq.n.m. the manager was at another motel she was managing on university ave. In albq.n.m. The police and fire department notified her to come to the motel but she never showed up. When the fire broke out the phone service was out of service if a driver on the inter state hadn’t called 911 the situation may have been worse thanks to God a good samarertain called for help. It may have saved lives. Your phones wouldn’t even call the front desk. This happen after midnite and at 630am the manager told the lady at the desk to let the people who’s rooms were destroyed to have a room till noon that day to get rest and clean up but had to check out at noon. Now this same manager that would not come to see what was going on with the motel. That motel she wouldn’t leave was in the news on TV for people cooking Meth in their rooms which is against the law and dangerous. The vapor from that drug causes health issues for years to come and painting over them does not cover the danger of it. But it sure did save your company money to cover up just like blaming me for my car damages and my clothes and luggage I had to despise of and my companion dieing from a fire that was not my fault but I had to pay for damages and the room I rented that evening. Since this is a corporate company I think you should hire people that speaks English and is not from here to manage your motels. That way your chain of motels could improve on how they are managed and the rooms would be cleaned properly I clean my room when I stay now cause I don’t like nasty bathrooms with hair around tolits and bathtubs and the linen is clean not stained and smell of someone else sweat and hair on sheets. Housekeepers are not cleaning the rooms to standards and can’t speak English nor understand when spoken too. The quality of your standards have went down with employees that work here. Thank you for leaving the lights on..But your standards of clean rooms and friendly staff and the saftey at staying at Motel 6 has went down hill with every new motel you build. I still have cancer and it isn’t curiable but I still have to keep going to doctors and still stay at your motel except I don’t expect your standards to be as you put them out to be. Thank you for loosing my companion and my car destroyed and me having to replace my luggage and clothing on yes and for allowing me to clean up after the fire at your motel. At least you got the persons car insurance to help with your damages And your insurance on the property to bad I got stuck with expenses on myself.

Never again will I stay at a Motel 6…. We had a family event in Idaho and for 3 familys the price was fair to stay at Motel 6 or at least we thought. We booked our rooms on a travel site 2 months prior to the trip, We go to check in and they charged us the correct price we reserved on online for 1 room but the 2 other rooms we got changed over $110.00 for the 2 other rooms. That was the first problem we then go to our rooms and none of them were cleaned. I was very nice about the problems until I reviewed my conformation and then I asked to speak with a Manager who was so unprofessional, I wanted a refund on the over charges on the 2 rooms the manager told me there was nothing he could do until he contated the booking company and then I would need to resolve the problem with them on the over charges. That is when I had enough I demanded a FULL refund and I would take our business elsewhere that is when the manager was like oh I can do the refund right now but it needs to be put back on your card, which didnt make any sense because we paid in cash on 1 of the rooms that was over charged. We were there for 3 days 2 nights and we keep getting people knocking on our door because there keys didnt work and they were told our room was just given to them from the office. The owners were unprofessional in the hospitality industry. The rooms were not clean the service sucked and they over charge. Never again worst experience I have ever had with any hotel company. Idaho location near Lava.

I wish there was an option to upload pictures so you could see the rash my two daughters got after laying on the bedspreads at your motel 6 in Savannah off I-95. After an over 10 hour drive we were quite happy to reach our stopping point for the evening. We checked in and left 20 minutes later for dinner. Within minutes of leaving the room a rash started to appear anywhere on their bodies that was not covered by clothing (face, neck, arms, legs) and by the time we arrived at the restaurant for dinner they we’re itching everywhere. I noticed the room smelled heavily of fragrance when we first walked in and thought the sheets felt a bit damp but convinced myself they were just cold from the air conditioning. To say I am disgusted is an understatement. We obviously returned from dinner and checked out but it took us over two hours to find another hotel to take us in at quadruple the price. We travel quite often and this was hands down the worst experience we have ever had anywhere.

The front desk attend was just awful. We asked for a refund and stood at another motel accross the street. She was on the phone cussing in front of my 1 and 4 year old children. “Are you f***ing serious? What a B**ch, babe your aunt is on my sh** list.” In front of my children. One of the most unprofessional encounters I have ever experienced. The rooms were not taken care of but the front desk attended topped it off. We Will never stay at this motel 6 again.

To Whom It May Concern:

I talk to a front desk attended but she was really rude to me. I asked why a truck could take up 6 parking spaces and to no regard to fellow motel 6 customers and all I got was sorry. That is so childish and unprofessional for any company. It was the night shift employee that told me this. If she was staying here she would get upset too. I had to park in a place that I did not like but it was not fair for that person to take up that many parking places. I hate being condescended and talk to like a child. The worker for motel 6 has a childish Profesional attitude and if she is not reprimanded I will never stay at another motel 6 and never will my fellow employees or friends.

Looks like I should have read the comments before we rented a room at Motel 6. Leaky toilet, toilet seat loose, faucet running constantly, holes in bedspread, and TV did not play correctly, loose wires. Was hoping for a credit of some sort to Celebrate our 50th Anniversary. Oh My !
