We stayed for 2 nights for the Indianapolis MotoGP grandprix. Just a place to sleep and get ready for the weekend. Its just off of 465, which is a perfect spot. Lots of food options around which is good. Room was the usual Motel 6 types..functional, and just right for sleep and shower, but, I felt the odor from cigarettes... More

Unfriendly! Very unclean! Very unsafe. I have stayed at many Motel 6's across the country and my experience at this establishment will cause me to seriously hesitate choosing this "brand" for future accommodation needs. I had a similar experience at the Davenport, IOWA location.

Those are the only positive things I can say about this motel. STAY AWAY! The carpet was disgustingly dirty and the room reeked of stale smoke. I called the front desk and the woman apologized and said the entire facility was smoke free but was fully booked so she could not offer another room. After driving all day I went... More

The Motel looks like it is closed when you drive up. Needs paint and updating, SOON ! I like what Motel 6 is doing by the remodels. This one has not been done. HOWEVER, it was clean, very clean. Bed was comfortable. Perhaps we lucked out. The staff is super friendly. My advice would be, check your room out before... More

We stayed here on Dec 20-21 of this year. Stayed here while we were vising relatives. This hotel definitely needs major updating. Although the room was shabby it was neat and clean and the beds were quite comfortable. Wifi was TERRIBLE. You had to pay for it. I got it free for 1 night cause I was AARP. It was... More

Phone didn't work, toilet filled completely to rim before flushing. When we told the desk about the phone, were told to jiggle wires and managed to get through to the desk, but got cut off. When we went to the desk, were told that we had tried to call 911, which routes through the office- if that was the case,... More

I did like the big refridge with a large freezer and the microwave was great as well. A funny little old fashion TV but the reception was OK. In all the area seems safe and open so is not a problem and easy access to the highway as well as a Walmart only a short drive along with lots of... More

If this is your way of traveling, this is the place to stay. Cheap, no-frills, clean, and pet-friendly. No extras, no drama. There were some folks yelling in the lot when we arrived, but they finished their business and soon calmed down.

Booked there for one night and got a very good rate. Although we booked a non-smoking room, it smelt a bit of old smoke.. The rest of the room was as we booked it. The beds and pillows are very comfortable. The a/c unit was the most quiet one we had in more than 35 different motels we stayed in... More
