DO NOT STAY HERE

They charged me for an extra night, without my agreement. They still had my debit card on file, and charged me an extra $170. I find it incredibly disturbing that I paid with debit card for 2 nights, agreed on the rate, stayed there, and then as I drove away another $170 vanished from my account!

Full disclosure, we did not end up staying because when came to check in staff was in the process of telling a young lady she could not stay at the motel. While I do not know why the person was being denied service, the way service was being denied was unacceptable. Instead of just allowing the young person to leave it appeared staff was going out of their way to escalate the situation.
Perfect for my dog and me

I was in town for 2 day mosaic class less than a mile from the Motel 6. I travel with my dog so the location and dog policy were great. It is right on the Estuary across from the Coast Guard Station. My room faced the water. (#143) and I had fantastic sunsets every day. If you have not stayed in a Motel 6 before, come prepared. You need shampoo and a coffee pot. My room looked newly renovated. Staff was fantastic!

I can’t emphasise enough what an unsafe dump this place is. My 1st nite there were drug deals going on in the room above mine. Then a prostitute came in and screamed till 4:30am. I called the front desk but no one answered. Second nite they moved me to a room on the bay side. Doesn’t mean much... you can’t see the water from the room and there were 25-30 dudes having a fiesta on the lawn. Curse words and loud drinking games till 2:30 am. When I checked out I was running back to my room because the doors lock promptly at noon. I asked the maid Ruby if she would open the door to get my clothes and an expensive leather jacket that was my favorite, along with about $1000 worth of business clothes. She refused to open the door. I went down and sat at a nasty picnic bench and watched as she took towels covering my clothes and put them in her cart. I then had to run to make a meeting. I went back to the Motel 6, told the manager what happened and he said there was nothing he could do. I finally got in touch with Claudette, Team Lead Claims Rep. and she told me they would need a police report, which I made. I called Claudette 10 times over 9 months before she finally called me backed to tell me my claim was denied. I plan on going to the Oakland Tibune with the story. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! Especially with kids. It’s not safe and the maid WILL steal your things. It should be shut down. Sent from my iPhone
My 2nd Stay - A Welcome Retreat

I don't understand some other, critical, negative reviews here. They don't match my experience. I liked my stay here so much that I'm back again. Yes, this is a motel and it's a great deal at the price. Yes, the little soap bars are a mere gesture. Personally, I bring my own soaps, shampoos, etc. when I travel. There have been plenty of clean towels in my rooms. The rooms have been clean and in good condition. All basic amenities have been fine. Staff has been friendly, attentive and helpful. And the location right on the estuary shore is fantastic. I enjoy the quiet, peaceful setting, along with sunsets out my window and leisurely lunch at a picnic table shaded by trees on sunny afternoons, or a brisk morning stroll to grab a coffee at Starbucks. There's even a fishing pier with cleaning station! See pic below for view from my room/balcony toward downtown Oakland skyline. The downside to location is that it's comparatively remote. But that's how we get such nice features at the price!
