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

Has no carpeting. Very uncomfortable hard wood chairs. No place to store your stuff so you will have to live out of your suitcase. The phone didn't work and the person at the desk came up and fixed it. and Bathtub stained. No carts available when I checked out so I had to lug my stuff manually.

I've stayed at this place more than once, hoping things would improve...but I'll tell you what, if I were a health inspector, there would be no motel 6 in Rockford,IL. If you walk in with white socks, expect to walk out with black socks. You won't be surprised to see bed sheets with burn holes, pubic hair filled bath tubs,... More

When you are just looking for a cheap place to stay for a few hours of sleep after driving 14 hours, this Motel 6 was okay. Don't expect too much. To be honest, we had to get past the stinky, filthy elevator, the beer bottles on the landing, and the hallway carpet that appeared to not have been vacuumed in... More

Never ever set foot in this filthy motel. I am sure you will go home with more than you came with! And I am not talking money! We entered the room of stench, that had one small window and a very faint light in the lamp. For good reason… the bedspread and pillow cases were filthy stained and burn holes.... More
