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

Let me start by saying the girls at the front desk were super sweet so this is nothing to their job performance. This is directed to the management of the hotel and to Motel 6 in general.

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.

I stayed there twice recently. The first time was ok, but that's it. The second time, also for business, was for an extended period. I did not get housekeeping at all. Not once.

Never stayed at a Motel 6 before. Was easy to find and the lights were on. Only one towel in room. Called and two more were delivered but then realized there were no washcloths and only two pillows (we use four). As an aside, they were the smallest bath towels I've ever used. I went looking for assistance and found... More

When you book a Motel 6 you get what you pay for. A basic room with a bed and a shower and a toilet. All were clean and there is plenty of hot water. Only real complaint is the towels are more hand towels than bath towels.
