It was okay for the one night that we stayed. Would not want to stay long. Bed was comfortable and really liked that it did have a mini fridge. But did not like that there was no in room coffee since we were getting up so early in the morning. No carpet on the floor which I am sure is... More

First, the disadvantages: I have to note that it might be due to the lack of carpetting (possibly wheel-chair friendly), we felt the layer of moisture (from showers etc-possibly due to lack of proper ventilation despite the ventilation fan seemingly on) on the floor throughout our say. It was a little uncomfortable but that being said, there are probably worse... More

This motel was nice & clean. There were only a couple of negatives. There was no Kleenex; I had to take my own in from the car. There was no carpeting. The shower was quite small (no tub). The handicapped bar made it even smaller. I am a quite small woman so a large person might not like this. But... More

We were late arriving (after midnite due to delays) and had some difficulty locating the Motel 6. You have to drive THROUGH the Comfort Inn's parking lot to get to Motel 6 -- that's the only access. The room was freshly refurbished - new paint and fixtures, new shower, new "fake wood" flooring. The room was clean, but there was... More

Our room was clean and quiet. The room rate was very reasonable and the room was very simple meaning there were not many amenities. I was told that amenities were available at the front desk upon request and that was the policy for all the Motel 6.

The bedding was not clean when we were there, and it was a rather uncomfortable night. No bathtub, just a shower, and there was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. Probably the smallest room I have ever been in, too.

When I checked in at the front desk there was a lady by the name of Frances. She was extremely friendly and caring. She had a great sense of Humor and was able to handle all the guests in the lobby in a professional manner and asked me if there was anything I needed before I went up to the... More

The hotel has a great location and has easy access from and to the Highway 80 and 35. Recently they have updated all their non smoking rooms with a different color scheme and replaced all the bedding and the window treatment. I like the new landscaping that is being done and the staff was very friendly. Would definately recommend this... More

This was the only hotel close to the airport and under $50 a night. It's very basic but it was clean. If you're looking for a five star hotel this is not it but if you a place to sleep and a great shower in the morning this is the perfect place.

Let me know when you pull your name off this hell hole. The only bright spot of the entire property was the sign proclaiming this was your motel. Believe me, it is nothing to brag about. Please give the hardworking guy who wanted to also cower behind the bullet proof glass you provided but was kind enough to come out... More
