The worst experience of a hotel stay I ever had. The night staff look very unkept. People hanging out in the parking lot. The hotel looked like it was for vagrants or the homeless. I had cover the bedding with my own bed clothes and did not use their pillows. Both rooms next to me where filled with old furniture,mattresses,... More

The motel was run down, old, and had extremely cheap everything. While I had no problems with others, I kept my eyes open and scanning when walking there at night as it did not seem particularly safe - supported by the fact that at night when checking in you can only do it through a safety window that protects the...

I read the reviews, looked at pictures and despite all signs pointing away from the Motel 6 I didn't listen. The price and location got me. The hotel is absolutely terrible. It's dirty, it smells like smoke, it has roaches, there's shady people living in the rooms, the fridge and AC leaked, there's rust, mold, and dirt all over the... More

We had to move from the first room due to the smell of smoke. The front staff was very accommodating about changing rooms. The bedding was stained in both the first room and the second room. At night, people were hanging out in the parking lot and walking about the property. The only positive thing that I can say about... More

The front desk guy with blonde hair and glasses is horrible and hung up on me more than once and then I went to the office where he continued to be extremely RUDE!! Had friends that had other rooms and found dirty needles under pillow in room 204 and another friend who found some kind of pipe and a spoon... More

The rooms appeared to have been "cleaned" when we arrived, but there was a bunch of grime in the sink (possibly old tooth paste?). Upon further inspection, the grime in the sink was easily wiped off with a wash cloth. Why did I have to do it instead of the housekeeper? The whole room was smelly and had cobwebs hanging... More

I had to move my first room because it smelled of stale smoke. Second room not much better. The remote doesn't work so I have to go back to the office again. The room is very dark and appointed like a 1960's dorm room. The office staff were nice though. I got what I paid for I guess.

I did not realize how hard it would be to find a room for the IU graduation weekend. Thought I was lucky to find a room so close to campus. The joke was on me. If I paid $45 for this room I would not be complaining. But when they jackup the the cost 3xs that to gouge parents on... More

Never again. The "non-smoking" room reeked of cigarette smoke. The floor was sticky. It was just disgusting. The key stop working, the TV barely functioned and oh by the way, they don't provide shampoo. Plus since it was graduating weekend, the price was jacked up.

Rooms are your basic Motel 6 without the 6 year old boys comforters, thank god! Internet is available but is so slow it is useless. The rooms are dated and some of the plaster and paint is pealing. If your looking for a clean basic room at a cheap price this is the place to stay.
