I too had some reservations about staying at the Motel 6 based on some of the previous reviews, but we had a very pleasant stay. Our room was large and clean, and we slept well. The hotel is half renovated, we still had carpet in our room, but had some of the other new amenities, like the flat screen TV... More

Nothing special. Large room. The microwave and fridge were a major plus. Clean but an overall sense of dinginess. Shower meant for short people, though. Just a place to sleep and move on. The lobby did serve fresh hot coffee for breakfast. Hotel was quiet.

I stayed at this hotel as part of a group for an animal show at the fairgrounds. I was very leary of staying here, due to the other bad reviews and my own bad experience at a Motel 6 many years ago. Much to my surprise, this hotel was just fine. It appears that it is under new management and... More

We stayed here the night before our tour of KU. Our room was on the 3rd floor, and when exiting the elevator, a vacuum sitting in the middle of the haul greeted us, followed by one of the first room doors being open, with a young child waving a pillow to air out the room while the mother was cooking...

Unbelievable. I travel for work and have worked in 24 countries, this one is the worst for sure. All the other reviews are accurate, dirty, run down, no amenities, and worst of all, sketchy as hell. So far in two days, I have see someone fall asleep and overfill a bathtub, running down all 3 floors. I walk by and... More

Never again! This hotel is run down! Parked and went through door needing key but opened easily without. Passed windows open in halls without screens. Got to our room and noticed no pillowcases (they did bring them very quickly) some were yellow. Masking tape along ceiling hanging there, holes cut in ceiling tiles for sprinkler heads, our window was foggy... More

We stayed in back to back Motel 6s on our trip...both same price $56. The first one was beyone awful, and this Motel 6 was a great bang for the buck. The room was clean, had 2 queen beds, free wi-fi and a mini-frig. So, highly recommend you read reviews for the specific Motel 6 you want to stay in... More

Over the years of traveling for my job I have stayed at many places that were well worth the money and some that should have been for free because of the conditions of the hotel and staff. I can truly say that for the last three years this has become my place to stay when I'm in the area. Staff... More
