Room smelled like old feet and a petting zoo. Pillows awful. No WiFi, complained 4 times with no solution. Checkout clerk basically called us liars about WiFi even though another couple behind us was confirming it as well. He was a totally rude and was obviously just concerned with keeping a quick buck. All I wanted to do was get... More

It is a decent place , if you are on your way through. The staff was friendly . There are lots of shopping and eating options very close. The pillows are like folded towels. You would be better served to bring your own pillow.

No frills hotel for a good price. That's all I was looking for. The room was clean and the staff were very pleasant. Also, check in and check out was very quick. There was a lot of shopping and restaurants in the area. We went there after football game in DeKalb which was only a 15 min drive.

Very nice place considering the very low price! Clean and comfortable , and walking distance to a decent food and drink establishment. Would stay here again if back in town , the front desk clerks were friendly and informative to my questions.

I travel with a guide dog and from the time we entered the lobby we felt very unwelcome. Then at 10 pm we were told we'd have to pack everything (we were staying for a week and had "moved in") and move to another room. WHAT??? I refused to move but the next morning they were telling me I'd have... More

Not sure how this hotel will end up with reviews. With thier recent pipe burst and less then clean areas perhaps due to the pipe and water damage it makes for a difficult review. However the front desk often had no one there and a good yell doesn't bring anyone? I would not recommend at this time. However, that said... More

Sitting in room right now. Staying two nights. I was expecting little and actually the motel is nice. Lobby is bigger than normal. Check in was easy. Pet friendly. Dunking donuts is 20 ft away. Portillos is nearby. Bed is comfortable. Heater/ac works great. No flat screen but good cable.

Over 6 months (May-Nov 2013), I have spent 30+ week nights at this Motel 6. It is the best value in the area. Clean enough for me, and if you don't like your room they will switch you to another (if available). Motel 6 is no-frills. You get a bar of soap and cleaned linens. BYO shampoo if you need... More

This is NOT your typical Motel 6. Very nice remodeled building, spacious rooms, new bathrooms and very comfy! Coffee 24/7 in the lobby (no in room coffee makers and service). No continental breakfast, but it is next door to a Dunkin Donuts. Quite nice for the price!

It should be.....dang....get a rag or hire a cleaning company please. Talk about a swipe around the edges for cleaning...even the elevator hadn’t been wiped down in ages....Its really kinda a dirty place, they need to trash the mattresses and get new, stains aren’t good. 1990's TV's mounted at an angle on top of the closet? Really? Don’t even think... More
