Friendly Staff But Small TV, Hard Beds, No Shampoo Or Conditioner, No Thermometer Indicator On Heating/AC, And Was Weirded Out After I Was Asked To Remember To Lock My Car And Door Numerous Times. Would Rather Have Paid A Little Extra For A Decent Hotel.

Stayed here for a couple of nights with 2 small pets which made it a plus financially to stay here. The nightmare began immediately the room was dirty, one little bar of soap for two people, minimal amount of towels, and when i asked for an Iron they had none. I also found bugs in the bathroom sink which made... More

Requested a non smoking room, arrived to a non smoking room that reeked of smoke. Light in the bathroom did not work, shower would not drain. After 2 nights of a 7 night stay, could not take the smell any longer. Told the front desk that we were going to check out early and asked for my money back, I... More

I'll start out with the good: The rate was extremely cheap, hotel staff was super nice & it is right across from the airport. . I HATE to give bad reviews but I honestly can't say much good. We stayed here in February 2013 as a last minute booking, my sister was terminally ill & we got the call we... More

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
