We always try to stay at the Motel 6 chain as they are moderately priced and usually quiet and clean. This one was no exception. The beds were very comfortable, and the rooms quiet. Coffee in the main room was a boon to my friend, who is not really conscious until a cup or two have been chugged.

We picked this place because it was one of the cheapest motels in Austin, and we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the beds are fine, and the bath/shower combo is decent. The windows and curtains keep out noise very well - I slept through a thunderstorm with no problems. The rooms are large with decent storage... More

Manager/owner had his car parked in the pull up canopy. Very hard for people to go in and out with care with just one side available. Room was OK for sleeping. Got ready to take a shower and there was NO SHOWER CURTAIN. Took one anyway. Told manager the next morning. Would have been nice if you could get coffee... More

We decided to stay at a motel as we had seen so many on films! This place was clean so happy. There were some "dodgers" wondering around. Security was highlighted which was taken on board by both of us but never felt scared. It was a stop over so did the job. I think we shall stick to a nicer... More

This motel has been remodeled with the hardwood floors, Euro-style furnishings, and cleaner showers. You can't really do better for a budget motel chain then a remodeled Motel 6 or Red Roof Inn. Checking in was painful - the guy was dreadfully slow, but friendly enough. Maybe that's how they do in Texas... The motel sits right off busy I-35... More

This was a typical Motel 6. It was conveniently located, and close to UT campus. The room was modest but very comfortable beds and pillows. The bathroom was clean and in good working order. The small TV was adequate with a minimal assortment of channels to choose from......and the hotel staff was exceptional. For the money spent, this was a... More

I booked online and had chosen the wrong weekend but called the 800 number and took care of that with no problem. Arrived and received fast, friendly service and a downstairs room as I asked for. Upon arrival to the room though I was a little leery as the window had been left open so I thought maybe someone had... More

I have never stayed at a motel 6 before so was slightly shocked how basic it is. The people on reception were pretty friendly and gave me a room as soon as I arrived at Midday. The rooms are seriously basic - no pictures on the wall, cheap laminate wood flooring, really poor quality towels and bedding. In fact -... More
