My friend and I booked this hotel for a football game b/c it was one of the only ones still available - we quickly found out there was a reason for that. I have never stayed anywhere so disgusting in my life. The bedspreads had cigarette burns on them (even though it was a nonsmoking room) and were dirty, the... More

Easy on and off the Interstate 75. Very reasonable rate and pet friendly at no charge. Experienced front desk provided smooth efficient check-in. It is near plenty of restaurants and places to see. It was one of the better Motel 6 properties.

There were 2 events in the area, I had already stopped at 2 motels and no other rooms were available. I was glad to have a place to stay for the night. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was clean, though the bedding and carpet were worn. There were several places to eat nearby, but I was... More

I just spend 2 nights this last weekend. The hotel desk was helpful and friendly. THe cleaning people provided extra towels on request with good humor. The hotel is not an upper end hotel so the three star rating was not a five star for the following reasons. The negatives 1) The bahtroomshower was made from fiberglass and had been... More

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
