We found this hotel right off I80 and found it to be easy to get to and easy to get out of and back to the interstate. We were just looking for a place to sleep for the night after traveling from Denver on our way east and this was perfect. The rooms are not huge but the double beds... More

This is one of the better Motel 6 motels. It's clean quiet and comfortable. The staff is friendly and there are several restaurants nearby. It's a bit hard to get to and parking is an issue if you have a large vehicle or trailer. Overall... good value for the money.

After a bad experience with the Motel 6 (Airport) we ended up here. Was attending a wedding and needed a place to crash for the night. The staff was very nice, I found it to be very clean and the price was right. One downfall was no coffee maker in the room, but we were basically just there to sleep,... More

I was just staying the night but immediately regretted my pre-paid reservation once I walked in. Everything was obviously really cheap. The people were nice, though. The toilet paper felt like sandpaper. The shower was really dirty, looked like it had rarely been cleaned. The bed was horrible. The sheets and comforter were stained, had hair and cigarette burns on... More

We chose this hotel because it was the best price we could find. We were expecting a dump but it was a great surprise. Very clean rooms and excellent service!! Coffee in the morning was nice. Everything in the room worked as it should. Beds comfortable and bathroom was very clean. I would certainly stay here again!!

People who hate Motel 6 usually do for all the wrong reasons. This place was OK. Price jump on weekends was ridiculous tho. We choose Motel 6 cause they are usually clean and our dog is a non issue. Hate paying $3 for wifi. I know I was tired after the drive, but the 23 year old clerk didn't have... More

let me start by saying, normally I would give a motel like this a 4, as it is not a luxury hotel, but this property is way under rated, thus a 5. I spent 5 nights in early august and completely enjoyed my stay and bargain rate[avg of $61/night]. this visit being during the iowa sate fair, when everything was... More

One of the newest Motel 6s in which I've stayed, so it's fairly updated. This was also the quietest Motel 6 in which I've stayed. It was clean, as was our room. They welcomed dogs. In a fairly quiet area and felt safe walking the dogs at night. A/C/Heat unit was in a sort of closet, which made it quieter... More

Nice for a Motel 6. Room was very clean. Like all Motel 6 rooms, no Kleenex, no coffee maker, no continental breakfast, no shampoo, etc. Just a basic sleeping room. Coffee was available in the lobby in the morning. Motel was located in a safe area. Motel very close to restaurants and fast food places.

The stereotypical Motel 6. Newer motel and easy to get to off the interstate. Bed was far from the best and hard. No amenities, but that is Motel 6's trademark to keep the price down. The room was only fifty some bucks, so one should not expect the Hilton Gardens. The only visual issue was a patch in the carpet... More
