I made a reservation through motel 6 online. When I arrived at the motel the clerk would not honor the price. What kind of service don't honor there own reservation? I refused the higher rate and went to the super 8 down the street. They will keep the light on for you , if your willing to give them more... More

Pulled off the Interstate at midnight so I didn't look around. I trusted Motel 6 for a no frills simple room. what a mistake. Where to start. . . First the smell. An overpowering odor of Chlorine even though we were nowhere near a pool. My wife had to use perfume to drown the scent which was marginally successful. It... More

First of all let me start by saying the reason that we needed a hotel was because we live in Perry Fl and our son had a doctor's appointment and we needed to be there early so we decided to come up the night before. ( BIG MISTAKE) The first room we were in the air conditioner was not working,... More

I gave this stay a 2 because I kind of knew what level motel we were booking. But it deserved a 1. Stayed one night before a football game. Booked a non smoking room, door had no smoking stickers on it. Walked in to smell smoke and see an ashtray of the table. Called down and the clerk said it... More

When you visit Gainesville on a game weekend, this is one of the few picks that cost less than $100 a night. There is not a lot of good to say, but the bed wasn't terrible and there is a nice little pool area. You will get 2 pillows with a queen size bed. We asked for more but they... More

We have stayed here for one night. The room was enormously hot when we came in. There were hairs in the bed, The bed sheets felt like plastic and there was a lot of noise outside from the corridors and traffic. Never again. Sorry Motel 6...

The room was much cleaner and spacious than the other reviews would suggest. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful as they let me see the room before i paid for it. I would definitely suggest this location to others in the future. My only complaint would be the obnoxious humming from the TV and the several shady individuals who... More

Ive stayed in several motel 6's over the years fully understanding these are your basic cheap motels. This place was definitely the worst ive stayed in. The pictures they have posted are a far cry of what I saw when I opened the door.
