Staff is very nice but the motel is not so much. Seems pretty decent during the day but at night it because pretty seedy and lots of random walkers throughout the property. Room was somewhat clean. Smoke burns on the sheets, found an ant in bed, hair in bathroom, paint job not finished, loud from the highway. Shortage of pillows... More

I stay at Motel 6 from time to time when all I need is a place to sleep and don't want to spend money on extras that I won't need. This was one of those nights - arriving around 1:00am, had to get up around 5:45am - just wanted to crash for a few hours. This motel provided an average... More

The first deal breaker was the smoky smell of our non-smoking room - it wasn't evident at first so I'm guessing there's bad vents or something. The second deal breaker was crap wireless internet - it worked fine until someone else signed on using the same (one-day) code and sometimes it seemed it dropped you just because. I had to... More

I was just passing through for a night and needed a place to plop down for a few hours before a very early flight the next morning. I normally stay at budget motels like Motel 6 because I'm not picky and prefer to save a few bucks, especially in a case like this. When I checked in, I was not... More

I had to clean my own floors!!! Hairs and crumbs everywhere!!! My non smoking room had burn holes in the blankets and everything smelled like smoke.... More

First of all I never write reviews. I flew into Austin from California and needed a room for the night. I checked with priceline. It seemed like a reasonable deal. I have stayed at several Motel 6 before. When I arrived I already had a very bad feeling. This motel is very sketchy and scary. I didn't feel safe staying... More

My husband and I were in town for the March Madness games at UT. The location of the hotel is a little confusing for out-of-towners when approaching from the south (you have to go past the hotel and back around, 35 is quite the freeway) but once you get used to it, it's no problem. The rooms were clean and... More

We ended planning a trip to Austin during SXSW like fools and the only hotel that we could find online that wasn't $500 a night was this Motel 6. After reading the reviews, I thought that the place would be okay but I will warn you right now... This place is AWFUL. When we arrived, there were homeless people loitering... More

This Motel 6 was clean, convenient and safe. The front desk clerks were helpful, efficient and friendly. I requested a different room because I didn't like the location of the one first given to me; the clerk accomodated me immediately without a hassle. There is an area (long and semi-narrow strips) on the west and north sides that are perfect... More

Motel 6 generally are just average, but the reno helped to elevate the rating on this one. The room was very clean and fresh smelling. Large flat screen TV and sleeker furniture made the room seem larger. On-site security.
