A/C was old and loud, could barely hear the TV. TV hookups were broke. Vinyl floor planks curling up. No dresser, fridge, or even a microwave. No frills at all, basic as it gets. Tub/shower drain barely worked. This was not a decent Motel 6, should not have their name. Never again.

Good quality but a little pricey for weekly rates. Very close to many restaurants and businesses. Grounds are kept very clean. Parking was average. I love the handicap accessibility at Motel 6. If they lowered their weekly rates to be competitive with otthers that discount weekly rates, I would stay here always.

Staff was very accomodating, but the room was a mess. Bathroom wasn't clean; muddy footprints on the floor, tub was dirty and there were bugs in it. Bed/bedding sheets had cigarette burns in them. Lock on the door broken. Heater had a short in it, so at 3am room was very cold.

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
