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.

The cleanliness of this motel room is terrible. There is debris in every corner and hair everywhere. The ice machine was also down. I spent $63 on this room and I feel as though I wasted every single dollar. I am never staying here again and will let everyone u know not too stay at this motel.

We always stay at a motel 6 because we have two kids and a dogs. This chain allows both to stay free! We're used to the no frills. The room we got was newer and loved the colors. However I do agree the housekeeping staff should take a little more time on the rooms. There was hair all over the... More

I can't believe how different my experience was from some of the recent reviewers. Right off the bat, this is a Motel 6 - it is the bargain basement motel chain - a completely 'no frills' chain. So, knowing that, it's pretty clear that you can't expect amentities like shampoo, tissue, and fridges. The skinny on this particular Motel 6:... More

We stayed here for the bills game and it was horrible. The beds were uncomfortable and the lobby smelled like smoke. It was so bad that we stayed at the Residence Inn in Amherst the next night. But we will NEVER stay here again!
