I have stayed at this hotel 5-6 times over the years for weekend trips to see the Gators play. I have stayed here for 2 reasons the price and because they are pet friendly. Like they say you get what you pay for. It is pretty rundown even though they did update rooms a year or so ago. If your... More

First off the owner was very pleasant. Anytime there was a problem he attended to it right away. Housekeepers were helpful and friendly and location is great. Unfortunately they have a front desk clerk on a power trip. Incredibly rude, I stayed here with my girlfriend whom the whole staff knew, and was sexists to her. Not allowing her to... More

If you want sleep and a quiet place this is NOT the place to go.. While I was there it was loud.. Music play people fighting right by the pool not to mention the drug users standing outside in plain view smoking weed.. There is no no disturb signs even asked at the front desk.. The Wi-Fi is NOT free..... More

This Motel 6 location refused to honor a 4-night reservation made a month in advance. the reason? The desk clerk would not honor my reservation for a two-bed room unless I paid $6 a night more. I agreed to pay the additional $24 (had no choice, no car, other hotels booked, needed two beds) while noting that I would also... More

Our room was clean, no bugs, no bad smells, the Wifi worked great, the staff were wonderful. I wish the room had a coffee maker but, when we travel we keep one in our trunk for the Hotels that don't provide one so it's really no big deal. Firm pillows and a good bed made for a decent nights sleep... More

The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were very flat. I woke up with a sore neck. The cleaning ladies are very loud and in considerate of other people that might be sleeping. I will never stay here again!

It's a Motel for sure...stale scent...bed was right next to heater and bed dressing had cigarette holes and stains. Good for one night stays in between long trips....good right across the street and pet friendly...and the tub is pretty clean.

This is a basic Motel 6 that is clean inside and out. However, she's showing her age and needs updating. The desk clerk was very helpful, friendly, and, accommodating when we needed special room location consideration. There's plenty of restaurants in walking distance. And, as always, they are pet friendly.

Arriving around 4-30, the receptionist was unaware that AARP members get free Internet access, after a discussion, that was sorted out ! The outside areas of the motel were very well presented. Room 154 was just very ordinary clean and very acceptable. The motel was easily accessible and in a good location. Noise in the morning from our fellow guests... More

If you’re planning to get a room at a Motel 6 just for sleeping purposes, then I can honestly say it’s worth checking out. You get what you pay for but it’s really not that bad. It is conveniently located close to the highway and within walking distance of an Ihop, Olive Garden, Taco Bell and Wendy´s among others..The overall... More
