This is the dirtiest motel I have ever been in. The carpet looked like something out of CSI. Thanks God we did not have a blue light! Bathroom was filthy, sheets weren't clean, sink was stopped up. And we were itchy the next day!

To start, when we got to our rooms, we noticed that there wasn't an alarm clock, table, or extra chairs. We thought this was a random occurrence with our room, but the other 2 rooms that our family had, they were also missing their alarm clock, table and chairs. We only had 3 towels in our room, even after we... More

It was almost the only room left in town, so we tried to ignore the wretched smell and the filthy carpet, but when we pulled back the sheets and noticed the wet spots on the pillow and sheet that was the last straw. We would rather sleep in the car. Fortunately, we were able to reach an unsuspecting relative and... More

the room had been painted and the typical motel 6 furniture was rather new. i checked for bedbugs due to other reviews but there were none and the mattresses seemed to be new. there were the usual limited channels on the tv. the carpeting and everything in the tiny bathroom- toilet, tub, floor- were EXTREMELY filthy and the room had...

I stayed here over Labor day weekend. I paid $38 per night. At $38 I don't care that the towels are thin or the sheets are not new this year, I really just wanted a clean, bug free room and that's what I got. The staff was friendly and helpful, my room appeared to be freshly painted, the carpet looked... More

You expect even a cheap motel would have clean sheets - NOPE! Numerous hairs on blankets, sheets and pillows not to mention STAINS and CRUMBS on the sheets and the floor. Also wet washcloth, presumibly from last customer, was still hanging in bathroom. Only 1 towel for two people, had to go back to desk to get another towel/washcloth. Overwhelming,... More

I originally planned to stay at this hotel for two nights when I came into town for a family wedding. Everyone from out of town was staying here so I thought it would be okay. I was wrong! I checked in late and entered my room... it was cringe-worthy at best. There were stains on the carpet, the bedding was... More

about eight of us went to a conference in bloomington, and i organized staying at the motel 6. i was put off by the other reviews but attracted by the price. overall, i think some of the negative reviews are too hard on the place. i found the staff friendly and helpful. the room we stayed in was nice enough,...

I was working into the wee hours of the morning in my Bloomington office, but couldn't get everything done. Since I live 35-40 miles away, I decided to check into this motel and at least take a nap, then go back to work later that morning. I read the reviews and most were very good so, against my better judgment,... More
