i admit that this is a budget chain, but they do have standards and this location just needs to be completely remodeled. What was once a Red Roof, this property does not look like it has ever been updated. The staff was friendly enough, but they could no make up for the dreadful rooms.

This Motel 6 needs a good clean. The sheets looks like they were used before, the chair was full of old dust, was not impressed. WiFi had to be paid for extra, did not like that either (advertising on the billboard was WiFi, which suggests to me FREE WiFi). However, staff were very nice, check in took some time but... More

We checked in at 12:30 a.m. and they still charged us full price for the room. The beds were clean but the rugs were disgusting! We didn't walk barefoot on them for fear of contracting something. It was late and we were too tired to look for another place to stay.

We did not actually stay at this property, however, I called in to see if the receptionist would ring a Motel 6 at Nashville that we stayed at the night before as I had left my shaving kit behind. The very helpful receptionist not only rang the Nashville motel and sorted out my problem, but rang the motel we were... More

Super friendly staff. Clean room. Nice view. Good location. Low price. Terrific value. Plenty of restaurants and attractions nearby. What more could you ask for? Located on a steep hill not good for walking unless you're in good shape. Also, probably wouldn't go there if there snow.

The hotel was ok! The things I didnt like is that there were signs of roaches… i.e. a smashed one on the bathroom wall behind the door. Also, black stuff on the walls which my bf said was a gel to kill them… and the room is really out dated! The things I did like… I didn't see any live... More

The front desk was extremely rude and we waited over an hour for our hotel room that we had reservations for because the women at the front desk were too busy on their phones. Although the cheap prices may sway you, please spend the extra cash and book your stay somewhere else. This place is complete trash.

We stayed for one night on our way to Florida. After checking in to our "non-smoking" room we found burn holes in the carpet, the room smelled of smoke, and we even hard burn holes in the blankets. We've stayed at budget hotels for a night on the road in the past but have never stayed in a more disgusting... More

I checked into the hotel early in the evening. I was given a high room at the furthest end of the hotel away from the reception. The noise from the freeway was awful. I asked for and received a quieter room near the reception. The staff were fine about this. apart from the noise a pleasant stay.
