When we checked in we were asked if it was okay if they did not clean the room since we were only going to be staying for two nights. The first thing we noticed was the smell. It smelled like mildew. I then noticed that we only had 3 towels there were 4 of us. I asked the person cleaning... More

First I will say that the picture both on this site and the Motel6 site of the exterior is NOT the hotel I stayed at. There are no outside doors, it is interior corridors! Upon Check-in I received a Friendly and smiling welcome from "Sam". I was disappointed to find out the room I reserved online (king with micro/fridge) was... More

We travel for work and stayed at this location for over two months. There are not many pet friendly options at a low price in this area so we felt "stuck" once we had moved in. A total remodel of this motel is needed. The beds are old and dirty as are the carpets in the rooms and hallways. There... More

For $45 on a Saturday night, you get a clean room, comfortable bed, and nothing else. Not even a clock in the room. But it was fine for a quick stayover. Was not noisy. Front desk staff is somewhat rude, but for the price, not half bad.

We checked in at eleven in the evening with a reservation. The woman who helped us was really pleasant and check in took all of five minutes, if that. The rooms were not luxurious, but wasn't expecting anything but the bare minimum. The rooms were clean in a general sense, but did find some hair folded up in the washcloths... More

As of late I have had some difficulty with Motel 6. I have to say I pleasantly surprised. One ice machine was still broken, but the vending machine was well stocked. Room was clean and the staff was knowledgeable. I was parked close to my room, and appreciated many entrances and places to be able to smoke.

Room 165 smells like a litter box. Beds ok and otherwise seems clean. Great price and located near restaurants. Front staff very helpful. I would stay here again because of price but I would ask to see the room because of the smell

Motel 6 Merrillville is an okay place if you don't have the money! I stay for long periods of time. There is never any ice because one of the machines is broke and the other is always empty because the construction guys fill their coolers!! Several of the housekeepers - especially the manager's relative (a minor age kid) - is... More
