We chose this place based on location and the fact that for the price, it was the most updated motel in it's range. It was four miles from the zoo, and it was very convenient that there was a WalMart and Sams Club right across the road. We didn't feel very safe though after dark, and there were people running...

We stayed here one night. It is convenient to the Interstate with a few restaurants close by. The hotel is clean but minimal for the price. A railroad close by the hotel may keep you awake at night. While the hotel is OK, I would probably not stay here again and use another hotel.

I was rather satisfied with my Motel 6 choice. The motel and room seemed clean. The front desk staff was pleasant. There was even a front desk kitty sitting on the desk at check-out, which was a plus for me! I only have a couple of small things mention: there wasn't a coffee maker in the room, no hairdryer, no...

Stayed here while trucking through after my APU quit and also snowed in for a day. Friendly staff, clean rooms reasonably priced and one of the newly refreshed Motel 6 properties. Nice comfortable stay for a couple of nights.

If your expectations start at remembering it's a Motel 6, you'll be pleased. Towels aren't the softest, bed is normal and there's no breakfast. Otherwise this hotel served it's purpose as a one night stop. Would not recommend for families with kids though. Apparently it's quieter if you get on the side away from the highway but I didn't notice... More

I needed a motel with room to park my 18-wheeler in the Council Bluffs area and take a much-needed break. I had passed by this Motel 6 before but had never stayed there. The front desk attendant was very helpful and even called me in my room to ask how everything was- and it was perfect! If you need a... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night as we passed through Iowa. As it is a budget motel, we were not expecting much, but we were expecting more than we got. It is located right off I-80, which was great. There is no lobby, which was a little confusing. The hallway smelled like some type of very strong cleaning... More

Paid $73, after tax for our family of 4. Freshly remodeled, modern decor with fresh paint, wood floors, fancy sink outside bathroom. Has a small indoor pool. Room very clean but hallways need vacuuming. Given that there is no lobby, no free wi-fi, no in room coffee, no breakfast, I'm not sure that this is really the best value.

The room was small, but clean, had lovely modern furniture. Although the chairs were solid wood, would have preferred something more comfortable to sit on! Flat screen TV, with minimal channels. WiFi costs $2.99. It sure isn't the fastest!! I was unable to watch youtube videos or download anything. Wasn't so bad for the time we spent here. The bathroom... More

This motel follows the typical motel 6 layout by providing clean and comfortable rooms...great for a stopover. People are super nice, friendly and helpful. Would stay here again. All motel 6 come with wifi at an extra charge. U can't beat the deal they have for a room that provides great sleep quality and super clean. Check in was fast... More
