We have not stayed in a budget motel since we were in our twenties and, although that was many years ago, memories of noisy neighbors, marginal beds, and minimal sleep are still fresh in my mind. But those are the only offerings at the I 57 exit at Gilman and we were too tired to move on. The room was... More

It smelled clean, looked clean...but found a stain(blood?) on the sheets. That made me nervous to pull the bedspread up to my face. But everything looked clean, no dirt in the corners or along the wall and the bathroom and shower looked good. But the bag in the garbage can was not. I wanted a clean bag and was going... More

Furniture is new, but cracks in walls & surfaces have been painted over but not repaired. Pipes and toilet are old; fan and light controls are old. Bedspreads are stained and have burn holes. A space is cut into the bathroom counter for Kleenex, but there is no holder. The wastebasket contained refuse and an old pair of socks!

Our stay was in January, 2012. Only about 7 rooms were rented out. Initially we were pleased to see a whirlpool bathtub, but close inspection showed the grill looked moldy. Ick. Also, there was a suction cup rubber mat instead of a cloth bath mat. The bottom of the mat didn't look too clean. We didn't use the shower at... More

I had a great stay at this location, which for some reason wasn't on my Motel 6 app, but it was there when I needed it as I had to get a few hours of sleep on my way to Memphis. The room is in the new style of Motel 6 renovations, with the faux hardwood floors and different color... More

The staff is extremely rude. Mattress has plastic underneath and sheets slide around on it when you sleep. The desk clerk threatened to throw me out if I complained. Motel 6 needs to revoke the franchise of this motel.

This was a tale of two nights. First night gets a 1 star, the second gets a 3 star. First night they were fairly full and even though we reserved this place almost 2 months in advance, we were given one of the last rooms available in the second outlying building. First thing that stood out was the weird design.... More

We are staying here right now and let me say these are some of the nicest owners I have ever met. Very friendly and accomodating. The rooms are remodeled and for a budget hotel you cannot ask for anything better. The bathrooms are not remodeled as stated before but I am sure the owners are doing what they can. Compared... More

This motel has recently been changed to a Motel 6. I would say "very good" for this area. All new bedding, but not new space or bathrooms. The carpets have all been pulled except in the hallways. I found the room to be very clean. The space under the doors between rooms and the hallway made it pretty loud for... More
