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

We've always had good luck with Motel 6 rooms... yes, it's a cheaper stay so you don't expect much, but the rooms are always CLEAN. We just needed a room for one night to catch some sleep. We checked in, went to our room, and 10 minutes later tried to check out. We were told we could not check out... More

This motel is close to the I90, and easy to spot. Cheap rate, and clean room though it has seen better days. Good deal for a drive through, quick stay. It is close to fast food restaurants, and gas stations. A bit noisy, being close to highway.

The only complaint I have is with the heating system it was either too hot or too cold in the room you could get the heater to adjust to be comfortable. Other then this it was a pleasent stay friendly staff.

This place ranks up there with one of the worst motels I have ever stayed in. Dirty wood laminate floors, burn holes in linen, towels that resemble something you would wash your car with. The heating system was terrible either very hot or very cold. So cold in fact I had bottled water in a plastic bag sitting on the... More

We walked in and had to wait a couple minutes for the overnight person (who we only deduced was working by the fact that we could see her doing laundry, not by her ratty jeans and tee shirt uniform) to put her personal phone call down and help us out. The moment she handed us the keys, she immediately picked... More
