Being the first time stay at a motel 6 we were very nervous about it. We figured we were getting in very late after a wedding and trying to stay on a budget. We could not have been more surprised and impressed. Very clean and everything was updated! The only downside was there was no breakfast. They did give us... More

We have stayed at this hotel 2-3 times in the past 2-3 years and while it was never a luxury hotel, we could always count on a clean room. We arrived and waited just afew people deep before getting our room. As requested, we were given a room with both a fridg and micro. We were also given a dirty... More

Stayed at Motel 6 on Sunday 8/3/15. Check in was a breeze. Room was ready. I traveled with boyfriend and 2 friends. 2 full size beds did the job but queen beds would've been a little more comfortable. For a 1 night stay we were placed in room 214 facing pool on 2nd floor. Air conditioner worked great. Right next... More

We stayed here for 1 night. The accommodation was reasonably priced and the room was basic but clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and obliging. Although the motel is situated a short distance from the main street, that is reflected in the price and there are several eateries in the vicinity, some within walking distance.

This is my first time writing a review on a hotel/motel that i've stayed at. I felt the need to so that others could avoid this place. I arrived at the motel around 6pm after a day at the beach with my kids so naturally we were tired and dirty. The lobby was full of people. The credit card machine... More

Ok I'm not picky, but this place is beyond disgusting. Our room smells like sewage. To top it off, there are stains all over our bedspread. I took and attached a photo of one section of it. Also, we were told it was a queen but it definitely seems like a full. It's safe to say I will never be... More

To start off with our room wasn't ready until almost 5..and then it wasn't very clean...and no hand towels or face wash clothes. It seems like there are people actually leaving there for extended periods of time. Lots of children loitering unsupervised by the pool. Couples fighting and yelling at each other...hanging around just outside of their doors smoking and... More

We know what to expect from Motel 6 and were not surprised by this no frills location. The grounds were clean as was the room. All modern rooms which we prefer because they are not friendly to bed bugs. This is off the beaten path and unfortunately, we did find two cock roaches in our room the following morning.
