It depends on what controller you have the device installed on.

Examples
1) A SATA II device on a SATA II port = SATA II speeds and a SATA III device on a SATA III port = SATA III speeds on the same motherboard.

2) A SATA II device on a SATA II port = SATA II speeds and a SATA III device on a SATA II port = SATA II speeds on the same motherboard.

3) A SATA II device on a SATA III port = SATA II speeds and a SATA III device on a SATA III port = SATA III speeds on the same motherboard.

Basically, the drive will run at the SATA controllers speed, be it SATA II or SATA III, along with mixed controllers being used.
