Very bad experience. First I was given keys to room that was ALREADY OCCUPIED by another guest. Crazy. When I went back to the front desk, the receptionist gave me another key immediately to another room and told me she would bring me the extra key to me in the new room shortly but she never did. Also her excuse... More

Myself and a few girlfriends stayed the night while we were shopping in Buffalo. The pictures on the website looked nice and we figured for the price, it wouldn't be bad for one night. Check in time was said to be 2pm. We arrived at the hotel at 3:20pm and checked in. When we arrived at our room, the door... More

Had surgery slated for a Thursday morning and needed to be at hospital quite early. Decided to stay at a hotel the night before instead of making a 2 hour drive the morning of the surgery. Usually stay at Red Roof, but after checking the rates decided to stay at Motel 6. Glad we did. Basic room, clean and comfortable.... More

Coming back from Boston we decided to stay overnight in Amherst and Motel 6 had rooms available. The rooms are bare bones and clean, linens are clean and bed comfortable. I love that they have put laminate on the floors. Great rate for the night and they do offer senior rates. One piece of advise - don't get a room... More

When we arrived at Motel 6, the scent in the hallway and in the room was very unpleasant. It smelt of cigarettes even though it is supposed to be a smoke-free room. The beds are not queen size as advertised. The washroom is very small and the shower water pressure is too light. When we requested some extra pillows and... More

Our complete stay at this hotel was horrible. It started as soon as we arrived. I went to check in and had to stand there for almost 10 minutes while the front desk clerk finished her personal call that she was on when I walked in. The hallways on the way to our room smelled of cigarettes, mold, and body... More

When we got there we weren't allowed to check in until a room was ready. We wait 7 hours to get one room. The air conditioner didn't work neither did the fan in the bathroom. The bed was like a brick. I would never go back.
