Two weeks ago I rented a newly remodeled Motel 6 room. I was shocked on how horrible, cheap and completely tasteless decor! The following are the negative room characteristics the new owners of Motel 6 had allowed to happen after they purchased Motel 6 from the previous original owners. The original owners of Motel 6 had done a fantastic job... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this motel for two nights. I got the room for 35 dollars a night on hotwire and after reading the previous reviews I decided to just take a chance. Okay... It really wasn't THAT bad. The hotel is ran by an Indian family and I believe they have converted rooms into their "home." The... More

So two days prior I had the room reserved with my parents credit card. Called back to the office Thursday to make sure the card had been charged and the room wasn't just "reserved" Gentleman on the phone says "yes if you reserved it online it has already charged your card". Drive three and a half hours....arrive at 9pm. Go... More

Great escape from the Super 8 motel a few hundred feet away on Central Ave. Motel 6 was the economical, clean, comfortable, safe - average motel accommodations in which I was expecting to find within this price range. The staff was polite. Grounds were well light and maintained. Rooms were newly renovated, faux bamboo hard-surface floors, room had very modern... More

Dead bugs all over the bathroom (and a few living centipedes), an odor upon entrance that didn't dissipate and made my clothes stink and worst of all.. NO HOT WATER! When I complained to the "manager", he said it was my fault for not testing everything out upon arrival (!) and that I waited until the next day to tell... More

We flew into Albany late at night so thought we'd find somewhere close to the airport, at a reasonable price. When I made the online reservations, I asked for a crib as we had a 1-year old with us. Check-in was pretty quick but she wasn't very friendly. And there were no cribs available. I don't think they have any... More

I understand Motel 6 is majority franchise but representing the brand is most important. No continental breakfast just day old coffee. The new laminate floors are beautiful, the entire redesign is beautiful. But the room attendant do not thoroughly clean the rooms. My 1st night was horrible. The floors were so dirty, the bottom of my feet looked as if... More

It was dirty, noisy. Wifi was not working. We were unable to lock the door of the room. The floor was dirty and sticky. I found and ant in the bathroom. Pay a little bit more for a better place. Even for a road trip. My worst stay ever
