Chose this Motel 6 rather than one of the others in the area because we had stayed at this location before. It appears that they've changed their registration procedures in an effort to keep some of the riff-raff away which is good. However, they also changed their WiFi. Apparently you can only use one device at a time. Considering you... More

I booked this motel because of the location. It's very convenient if you try to go to the airport. Concerning the room it was clean. I was also well welcomed by the staff. They helped me booking a taxi for the day after! Note that you have to pay for internet! Everything went fine!

Not much to say. It was the lowest price in town that I could reserve online. A couple of shady characters walking around but they didn't bother us. Room appeared to be clean. Beds were ok. Grocery store across the street. No ice unfortunately but it was the middle of a heat wave. The place does not have regular AC,... More

Booked a room for one night, arrived about 3:45 (had said estimated arrival time would be between 3-4) and was told their internet hadn't been working properly and they didn't have any rooms available because the housekeepers hadn't cleaned them yet, so I would have had to wait an hour. The woman at the front desk did not seem apologetic... More

Driving through the area was awful, when we pulled in to the motel we just wished we hadn't made a reservation. Police seem to patrol the place all the time, I see why.... It was really cheap, but you get what you pay for....$43.99 + tax isn't bad, but the rooms definitely are bad... Walking into the room and the... More

Checked and the staff was friendly. Had a reservation for 1 Double Room NO SMOKING (very important) and paid for in advance. They did not have our room and they were fully booked. All they had was 2 rooms with one double each and they were SMOKING!! The rooms were not too bad for $69 (for both). One other problem... More

The sign in the lobby says the lights are still on for over 50 years... the problem is, nothing else has changed in 50 years. We got a room for 3 adults. The beds are pushed up against the wall so you have to climb over to get in. There were 2 bath towels for 2 people. A partial list... More

The staff here are friendly and you can tell that they care about the motel. The rooms are clean. Close to restaurants and a grocery store. They have great rates. I stay in a lot of motels for my job and this motel 6 exceeded what my expectations were based on the rates. What more can you ask for?
