I don't understand why people are bashing this place. I stay here for 3 days every year. It's basically a place to sleep.You get what you pay for. It's a Motel 6, not the Plaza. Not sure why people are expecting luxury. No, the area isn't great, but do your research ahead of time and you'll find that out. Personally,... More

4th time staying here, while traveling up and down the 95 corridor, I have come to use this as a place to stop for the night.

The area wasnt bad but the service and the staff were. The rooms smelled and I was charged twice on my credit card. The security guard was rude and checks your car to see if you have extra guests so they can charge you more money

Motel 6s vary from awful to acceptable. This one is better than most. It is in a tough area but there is a security guard on duty in the evenings. The property has been painted, our rooms were clean and everything worked - unlike most M6s. Staff helped us with meal options. You have to judge M6 on a price/performance... More

We stayed here, unfortunately, for one night on 6/8/12. Our group consisted of myself, my husband and 2 kids, our cousin and his wife. We were all on our way to the OBX from Rhode Island and Albany. NY, respectively, and needed a quick stopover for sleep. While the price was right, nothing else was. Smelly, dirty rooms, questionable location... More

Stayed here briefly while on a layover. To start the entire motel had a nonfunctioning AC unit, with the heat turned on in each unit. After letting the room door stay open for a bit, things cooled down. I requested a nonsmoking room, only to be told that there were none. I accepted this and went to my "just cleaned"... More
