Even for a Motel 6 this location fell far below my expectations, which were very low to begin with. The photos online showing their remodeled rooms look nice and are deceiving. They are no longer in the condition shown. Housekeeping is non existant. They don't wash sheets between guests, instead they just fold them back over for the next visitor.... More

The rooms are in the process of being updated ask for a king with flat screen and Check to make sure the AC & Heat works before you move in. This was a nice enough place--inexpensive and Very Clean. There is free ice a community micro wave and onsite laundry--plenty of... More

I stayed at this motel when my onward flight was cancelled due to bad weather. When in an emergency and you need somewhere to stay this is OK. The corridors and entrance smell a bit dirty but the room and bed is clean. Don't expect anything more than basic amenities but if you need a bed and some sleep its... More

I have had several friends suggest this hotel if I were ever in the area. I finally, with slight hesitation, decided to stay. I was on the road for a while heading north, so I called and asked about a complimentary early check in. I was able to check into the hotel several hours early, without any extra charges or... More

We stayed here for the weekend. My only complaints were that the room was very small, the bed was not that comfortable, and the comforter had burn holes in it. In all honesty though, for as little time as we spent in the room and as much as we paid we got our money's worth.

Once in my room all was good. I faced the parking lot which was really BAD. Heard cars in the lot with bad loud exhaust pipes,... More

This place smells really bad, they have a terrible customer service. Stains on the wall. Harsh smell in the rooms and the hall way. They also have a (wifi) $2.99 a day that might work. I went there to ask for a plastic cup since they don't have any cups in the rooms and they told me there is a... More

So according to the Motel 6 website, this location had recently been updated. I guess that means garbage and dirty laundry in the hallways, stains and cigarette holes in bedding in non - smoking room, a putrid smell coming from the bathroom, mold around the tub, etc. I think that the average reader understands the review. I never even unpacked... More

This room was remodeled and 100% better than the last one we visited in New York.The water pressure could have been better in the bathroom sink but not a deal breaker.I would've liked exit doors on the other side of building so not to walk far from the car.
