We should have headed advice from the other reviews and booked elsewhere, but the low cost beat our commonsense. The first room we were assigned smelled of stale cigarettes. The keys didn't open the second room and after going back to the front desk for the fourth time, we were assigned a third room. This room had a only a... More

There are a few positives. 1- very cheap; 2- friendly staff; 3- good location to IU. Traveled here for two nights to drop a child off at IU. Thought the motel would be ok for the two night instead of paying $$$. I was wrong! The room was soo run down and the smell of cigarettes was unbearable. The bathroom... More

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
