I used to avoid staying at a Motel 6 because they had a bad rap for low quality and smelly rooms. But ever since we had to make an emergency stay in OK when a severe ice storm hit on our drive from KS to TX, we have made Motel 6 our #1 choice. We travel with two large dogs... More

I assume the motel has recently been remodeled or acquired by motel 6. All rooms have interior entrances (I don't like this because it s more work to carry stuff in, personally). The desk attendant was very nice and the room was clean. The location is interesting: it backs up to a neighborhood but is just off the hi way... More

First off, the guys I met at the front desk upon check-in and check-out were both brilliant. Couldn't have been nicer, and as a single young woman traveling alone, I can't tell you how much I appreciated it. The room was on the smaller side, but it didn't in any way feel cramped. Yeah, the bathroom's hilariously minuscule -- but... More

The rooms were very small and the bathroom is bigger in a RV camper. It as if they took a room cut it in half to make two room and two bathrooms out of an already small. Its a hassle getting on and off the I35 Turnpike and few dining options if you just need to bug out early. It... More

The desk clerk was nice, but that was about the only bright spot. We had a second floor room, no elevator. Our room was not particularly clean, first thing I saw when I turned on the light was a spider. Bed was not comfortable, We will not stay at this Motel 6 again.

I have stayed at many Motel 6's and this is the BEST ONE EVER. The motel is totally renovated. The staff is friendly and accomodating. The motel is clean, quiet and nicely appointed. Hardwood floors!!! Granite like vanity with a high end porcelin sink. Spotless new tub and shower. New Linens. I LOVE this place and will stay here again... More

The staff were helpful, friendly, and did so much for my family during our stay that I felt obligated to repay them in some way. The best I can do is to spread the word about how pleasantly surprised, to the point of amazement, everything from extra towels to change for the washer and dryer. Simply put, I have never... More

The room was clean and nicely remodeled. The staff was very friendly. The young lady at the front desk was new and having some issues with the credit card machine (it ran out of paper). She was very apologetic and doing a great job, even with a few people waiting in line behind us. We didn't realize that our prepaid... More
