I recently stayed this past weekend. I had to go to Gary for two funerals. The hotel is in a great location. The room itself was nice for my daughter and I. It met all of my needs for the weekend. When I come back, I plan on booking here again! It was a great stay and room for the... More

We stopped on our way to Indy for a concert. We were actually surprised at how nice the room was. We stayed at a Motel 6 last year and you could barely move around the room because it was so small. Check in was easy and we had no negative issues at all. Also, there is a mall and just... More

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.
