2/10 Poor

8/10 Very good

Fun lil get away
It was okay! I don’t think it’s a good stay for a family with kids to stay at. The surrounding area was a little busy with transients. On the other hand the Santa Ana zoo was right across the street. Which my kids loved. Over all we had a blast!!!!

Excellent despite neighborhood
Marisa was wonderful at check-in, very friendly and helpful with all my requests. The neighborhood looked a bit sketchy but they have security patrolling at night so I didn't feel I had to unload my whole vehicle, and it was untouched. The room was cleaner than most Motel 6s I've stayed in recently (and I travel with pets so it's my go-to chain.)

I would pass unless no other options
The room was supposed to be non-smoking but as soon as we opened the door we were hit with the stench of stale cigarettes. The location of this hotel is not great and the door jamb into the room was cracked leading to the conclusion that there was past issues with people trying to enter the room unauthorized.

Motel 6
The room was clean, the bed was squeaky and uncomfortable. The location isn't in the best part of town. The two staff members i interacted with were super friendly and helpful. It is close to the 5 fwy and about a 15 minute drive to John Wayne Airport
