The girl working at 9:30 pm on 7/25/2015 took my reservation and I asked if it was ok to come late, we'd be arriving around 1am. She said no problem. We got there and my reservation was not in the system and they were sold out. The guy at the desk was nice and apologized but honestly that does nothing... More

I was very surprised at check in. Lobby area looks nice and clean. Room was updated and was super clean. Staff is friendly and very helpful. They provided me with info on restaurant and things to do in the area. I would recommend if you are on a budget.

The "non smoking" room smelled like smoke and perfume covering it up. It was dirty and run down. The staff wasn't very friendly at all. For the price, I was expecting average-- not a dump. We are a military family moving across the country on a budget which is why we chose this place. Looking back, I'd spend the extra... More

This is a good place to stay if you need a place to rest. Very simple amenities, a bed, TV, shower, and that's pretty much it. Lots of restaurants nearby and the staff was satisfying. The price is affordable I have to say. I would stay here again.

I think "average (three stars)" is you get what you expect, fair enough. For the price, I did not expect much. I booked a non-smoking room on the Motel 6 official website but got a smoking room, that is why I think it's below average. It even could not keep its promises.

When I travel alone, I don't need many amenities. Ease of parking, clean room, a working heater/sir conditioner, comfortable bed, a small refrigerator, and that's about it. I get in fairly late at night and leave early in the morning so I don't need swimming pools, exercise rooms and all those other things. For that reason I always stay at... More

Thank you for staying with Motel 6 on Childs Ave, we appreciate your repeat business. We have recently completely remodeled half of our room and the other half of our rooms are partially remodeled. The biggest difference in the two is that the completely remodeled rooms have wood effect flooring while the partially remodeled rooms have carpet. We are more... More

The budget option. It cost $55 for the night, but you dont even get carpet on the floor for that (see picture). Parking is close and no noise overnight as it is far enough from the highways and rail line are the nicest things you can say about it. Staff are fine. We got towels albeit slightly threadbare ones.

Black mold in parts of bathroom. No shampoo unless you pay a dollar. No towels in room. Clerk was super nice though and made the stay pleasant. Bed was hard as a rock and room was noisy. Not much but a place to barely sleep.
