A newly refurbished hotel but very "bare bones." Room clean but literally no other furniture than the bed, TV, and stand that acts as desk and place to store clothes. No chairs to sit in, no place to hang clothes, just basically a room with a bed. No tissues, toilet seat too small for toilet, tube TV, and new bed... More

If this was updated hard to tell. Toilet seat cracked. Unfortunately motel 6 has changed. Now seems to attract seedier clientele. Concrete hallways looked bad. Not as clean as should be. Looked bad versus nearby hotels. Sign that had weekly rate so more transients than business travelers, pay more somewhere else. Town of Columbus nice.

This is definitely one of the nicest motel 6 I stayed at. Close to highway but very quite. The staff was nice and a clean property seems like under renovation with nice and neat clean room. Only thing would recommend should choose some nice coffee

Boy am I glad I did not read previous reviews. Lady at the front desk was pleasant and when I later called to tell them the internet was not working she reset it right away and even walked down to my room to be sure it was working. Room was just what I hope for in a $50 a night... More

the place was cheaply updated. the bathroom counter already has a crack. the toilet is loose. the fridge is blocking the space between the window and the bed. the pillows are nearly nonexistent. and they have the most disgusting blankets I have ever seen! perhaps a surplus from a local prison... see the pic!

We get to the hotel to meet with our Mother and Father-in-law to pick up our kids. The front desk guy tom was rude, the first room the toilet did not work, smelled like mold. They move us to a different room and that one is dirty and just as bad. My lungs started to hurt from the mold. I... More

Hotel is very basic. At about 12:30 in the morning they had someone come into our room because they checked to room out to someone else. Was asleep and all of a sudden the door opens and two strangers were just as surprised as us to have people in the room. WIll never stay there again.

Terrible, dirty, smelly, massive maintenance issues, unprofessional gm (Tom) and unsafe feeling due to the people aloud to loitering around facility! Was the worst experience with a hotel I have ever had! DO NOT subject your family or friends to this location!

This hotel is probably in the worse condition of any that I have seen. The pictures posted are very misleading. When we arrived, we notice structural and maintenance issues as well as people loitering around. Since we arrived before the cancellation deadline, we attempted to cancel the reservation we had made before even checking in due to safety and health... More

A quick place to stop on a long trip. We needed some sleep so we stopped at this location. This is a bare minimum hotel. You get a bed, a shower and a TV, not much else. Quiet? No you don't get that. The hooker who set up shop in the room next to us saw to that. The cars... More
