Very clean and quiet. Staff very friendly and helpful. They charge no extra for pets! My dog enjoyed the stay as much as I did. Looking forward to staying there again. Loved the hardwood floor in my room. Will take my family there when passing through. Five stars

Even though the location was excellent (across from Adventureland, next door to Flying J) our stay here was terrible. I called 2 weeks ahead to reserve a room for my wife and I, due to my health I asked about their pool, was told it was open and operational. Called 3 days before we arrived and again asked about the... More

My boyfriend and I are truck drivers we needed an emergency hotel due to a break down. The room ended up costing 70 dollars which was about 60 dollars over priced. The service was horrific flat rude staff that all looked unprofessional. The room had bad peel and stick flooring that felt like you were going to fall through. The... More

I first stayed at this property six years ago and had a really good experience, so I decided to stay here again when I needed a stop for the night. Unfortunately, as soon as I closed the door to my room a roach scurried across the back of the door and back out again through the crack. I was not... More

The room was spacious with nice wood floors. Thing is the chairs were also solid wood and small. They were very uncomfortable. The beds were nice and soft though. Would have liked a comforter instead of what felt like a curtain to cover up with. The bedding was clean though, so I can't complain. The room had a funny odor,... More

I was very happy with my stay at this motel 6. It is right across the street from Adventureland so for the price and location was the best in the area. Also having a pool was a plus. It doesn't have an alarm clock in the room but since my phone has one built in that doesn't matter much to... More

I have relatives in the area and have stayed at this motel several times. The location is great, but a little tricky getting to (you have to go through the truck stop parking lot to get to the motel's office and parking lot). Except for the no free Wi-Fi, I have found the staff friendly, the place clean and affordable.... More

I am usually not a fan of this chain, but we were traveling and had been on the road (after working a full day) and this property was next to I-80, easy to get to, and didn't look bad. (the only other Motel 6 I would every recommend is by the airport in Lincoln, NE. My husband got the room... More

Really nicely updated Motel6. Room was very clean, clearly updated with the bamboo floors. Right near Adventureland if that's where you're headed. Restaurants nearby. Staff very accommodating, allowing me a late checkout. Smoking only permitted in Building B. One disadvantage is it is near the highway so there is some highway noise. The Flying J next door has excellent pizza!
