We drove over 900 miles and we're tired. Stopped here for night. Wish we had kept going. The room was filthy. The remains of someone's bowel movement still on toilet. Dead roaches on floor and woke up to a massive live roach on bathroom wall. I couldn't even take shower because I was afraid roaches were going to drop on... More

From the filthy carpets, broken coffee machine (main office), dirty old blanket, broken ice machine, poor mattress and smoky smell (in a non-smoking room) to the four large cockroaches that I killed I would venture to say that this is the worst hotel that I ever stayed in. Motel 6 is not the Hilton and I did not expect it... More

It was cheap, convenient and they take dogs. We just wanted a place to sleep after a long day's drive in pouring rain. We didn't expect much at that price and were not surprised.
