Loud trains, dogs barking for hours inside the hotel, stains on the tub and walls. Electric outlets that didnt work. Eww. I dont think there was enough chlorine in the whole city to make me go in that pool. The smoke smell was overwhelming. The place was crawling with meth heads. Stay somewhere else.

For a two star hotel and less than $50 this was an excellent deal for me as I don't usually like motels that make a weak effort at breakfasts of processed foods that will slowly kill you.. With an AAA card I paid less than $45 bucks, got a CLEAN comfortable room, access to a pool, coin laundry that worked,... More

Hotel is in a pretty decent location if your alright with a train crossing across the street. TV in room didn't work until we called for maintenance then we got the 10 channels they have and 5 of them are sports so had to drive down the street to buy a DVD player. And now I get a email to... More

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
