I usually stay here each September, the evening before "Radio Expo", a Ham Radio & Electronics flea market/convention held at the nearby Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere. I like the location and the overall appearance of this Motel 6, and staff and amenities have been good. Certainly fine for a solo traveler looking for a reasonably priced night's stay in... More

Then when i got to my room the door was almost impossible to close. i had to throw my whole weight against it to get it to shut all the way... More

Spiders spiders everywhere. We were in the middle of a trip south and were tired so we looked for the cheapest hotel in the area. This one fit the bill so we checked in around 10pm to get some shut eye. My wife spotted several spiders in the place, but I didn't see any, so we hit the sack. They... More

Cheap hotel ( i think this is a budget hotel) with no breakfast ( even though they say they do, unfortunately they done). Good location, good room size, not so impressive other than those two good points.

I stayed there Monday August 10th. It was horrible. Floors were lifting. Footprints on the bathroom floor and in the bathtub. Sink faucet was deplorable. Bugs on the bathroom floor the next morning. It should be out of business and money should be refunded to all. Motel 6 should be ashamed. Traveler beware, there is no need for this. I... More

do NOT stay here- this person needs to go out of business. I emailed Motel 6 corporation about this place- this is what gives them a bad reputation. Never mind that the building is in disrepair, the linens were filthy, the bathroom floor looked like dirty mop water had been swished around on it and not rinsed, the shower didn't... More

Do not stay here. The building is dilapidated and in need of repair. Bed and pillows are uncomfortable. Bathtub was gross and I refused to shower in it. I paid $80. I have been in $30 rooms that were better.

So we stayed here last summer and while it wasn't the Hilton the rooms were clean and nice... This time we did not have that same experience...
