When I went to California with my sister and her 2 small children, we stayed at Motel 6 for 1 night. we rented the room because we wanted to go to Disneyland the next day. When we got there, checking in was very easy. All we had to give them our information and credit card. We told them we wanted to see the fire works from Disneyland so they put us on that side. We also were able to purchase our tram passes to take us to Disneyland.
When we finally got into our room, I was amazed to find the room very clean and the baby's playpen was already in the room. There were fresh towels in the bathroom and clean sheets on the bed. The room was very well decorated and there was even hardwood floors.
We didn't get to visit the pool, but I had a chance to at least look at it. The area was very well maintained and like the room clean. At the time we went, the hotel was under construction. Even though there were signs posted apologizing for the rucus, I didn't hear anything.
The only bad thing is that they did not serve a continental breakfast however they did have coffee, hot chocolate, and french vanilla cappicino. We were able to catch the tram which took us right outside the ticket stands at Disneyland as well as take it back to the hotel.
For the price we paid ($79.99), it was well worth it. I reccomend that if you need a hotel to stay in, look into Motel 6. It is well worth it!
