VERY basic. Really. Huge complex but located on a rougher part of town. Because the complex is huge-4 to 5 two storey buildings. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean. Only tv available. Ice machine yes. If you're there jsut as a stopover and for the night, it's adequate. I felt a little apprehensive going out... More

Admittedly I have not stayed in a Motel 6 for decades, but this was beyond my wildest dreams of bad. Due to a scheduling snafu while on business travel and the fact that there wasn't a hotel to be had in this vicinity I ended up here for one night. First just getting checked in and back to my car...

We reserved for two nights, 3/20 & 3/21. Arrived at 3PM. We're told that rooms would not be ready until after 7PM. Rooms were filthy, smoke filled, cigars in ashtrays, wet mildewed carpets, bug infested. We slept in cars and tried to cancel second night but motel would not allow. We are forced to resolve through credit card company. This... More

I give one star for the staff who are helpful. First, the area is a little dangerous. Lots of suspect people just walking around. Security presence would be helpful. The room was very dirty and had a musky smell. The bed was OK. Sheets seemed to be clean. I was here one night and I left. Just didn't feel safe.... More

Some people say, "You get what you pay for", but that is not the case here. I reserved a non-smoking room but did not receive a non-smoking room. The room we received 3 HOURS PAST THE CHECK IN, was so disgusting. Upon entering the room we were hit in the face with the smell of cigarettes and a bed that... More

This hotel has four large buildings with rooms on the NW corner of I-17 and Indian School near Downtown. It is in a very busy area with a lot of questionable people. Try to get in the building near I-17. You will need an ID to meet the needs of the agreement of the Phoenix Police who also have a... More

obviously you can't really expect much from a motel 6, but this one in particular was severely substantial. where do I start? first of all, our checkin time was 3 hours late. the moment we pulled into the parking lot, there were some sketchy characters lurking around (later that night they were swarming the place). a blast of cigarette stench...

We stayed here for super bowl weekend because it was cheap and I understand why. The sheets had holes in them from what appears to be cigarette burns and in contrast to the no smoking room we were in the room stank of smoke. the tiling in the bathroom was missing in spots and it looked like both the bathtub...

Rooms are not very clean and on my third night the cops shot and killed a man staying in the motel suspected of armed robbery. Cops told me the area is not safe and I should not walk around the area and think about finding another place to stay.

Stayed at Motel 6 Black Canyon, Indian School Road and I17. If you like filth, bed bugs and prostitution outside your door, then this is the palace of all places. And you do get your moneys worth. Very, Very slow check-ins for the room you didn't ask for and plumbing that sometimes work. SO STAY HERE for a lousy night.... More
