When traveling everyday, I look for affordability, cleanliness, and comfort. I don't believe I will ever stay at another Motel 6! The hotel is older and they have tried to add some creative touches to the room; however, when this barefoot girl feels the need to keep her shoes on, you know the floor is dirty! The room was non...

This place was filthy. The bed had stains and cigarette burns, the floor and walls were peeling and the shower wasn't usable. There were gang-bangers in the parking lot and above me making awful noises and driving around the parking lot. I checked in and then right back out. I have stayed at Motel 6 before elsewhere and had a... More

My stay was unsatisfactory even for a motel 6. I stayed here for a single night and regret my stay. Pulling up I was not expecting much but I had seen the property looked like it was fully renovated and I make a point to only stay at renovated motel 6's. I don't expect much from a motel 6 and...

Wow, I knew the motel was only 40 bucks, but jeez! Balcony walkway felt like it would collapse any minute. Almost turned back. Room was BARE! No carpet, no clock, empty walls except for wall mounted tv kit. Stains on the sheets, actual boot prints on the shower mat, paper thin towels that were very rough. Towel cubby came apart.... More

I needed a cheap place to stay for a few days in Rockford. With this one, you get what you pay for. The heater/air conditioner didn't work and it was 7 degrees outside. Once they fixed it, it was either like an oven or freezing in the room. The sheets and spreads had horrible stains, as did the walls and... More

This place is nasty, dirty and noisey. 1. Linoleum on floor instead of carpet, dirty, cracked and buckled up. 2. Bed spreads stained and cigarette burns on them. 3. Only one chair, that was dirty and had seen better days. 4. Dirt in most corners of the room. 5. Shower head had large hole around pipe. 6. Vents had hair/dust... More

Old timers may remember the Motel 6 being on South Eleventh Street. That location is not a Motel 6 anymore, and possibly may have been torn down. The new one is at I-90 and Business 20 (State Street) on Rockford's far east side. It's three stories tall. You need to try to get a room facing west, or you'll have... More

We have stayed at other Motel 6 locations in the past. This is by far the worst one yet ! Believe the other reviewers that give this one low scores. Our room looked like it has been neglected pretty bad. The bathtub was dingy and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. I refused to step in the tub... More

I only needed a place to crash for a few hours of sleep and, despite my wife's objections, we decided to give the Motel 6 a chance. How bad could it be? Pretty bad. The linens were horrible--stained and burned. The place is filthy. Desk clerk was nice.

I wish I would have looked at the reviews before booking a room. I stayed at this hotel about 6 years ago and it wasn't too bad for the money. I knew from when I checked in it was going to be horrible. I couldn't understand ONE word the guy was saying! We get into our room, first thing I... More
