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

We needed an inexpensive pet-friendly room for the night and usually have great success with Motel 6. However, this must be one of their oldest hotels (?) The room smelled very stale and funky but I guess my nose got used to it. They put two double beds in the room we were in...one was pushed up against the front... More

I stayed at this place for two nights with my husband and son because it was the only place left in town with a room that didn't cost a fortune, and it can be summed up in one word: either "blech" or "disgusting". We had to leave a night early because my son was ill, and I didn't even attempt... More

Motel 6 is an alright hotel certainly serves it purpose as a place to lay your head for a night and get on the freeway in secs. The SMELLY rooms are awful and they let pets stay in ALL rooms so you always find pet hair on your clothes. {not sure how often they wash the brown sheets} but I... More

I stayed at the Motel 6 during Gatornationals. This property is a bit dated, however very clean and just fine for the price I paid. $120 is a lot for a 6, but it sure beat $240 across the interstate or even $160 just down the road. No breakfast, but they had the best coffee I've tasted in a long... More

Forced to stay here due to last minute arrangements and paid $120 for a standard room that was filthy, toilet was patched, table was falling apart and there was a charge for WI-FI. I wouldn't have paid $40 to stay her under the best circumstances. Definite price gouging for local events - wouldnt have minded paying extra for a decent... More
