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.

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

We needed a room in Wichita as we had to go to western Kansas for a wedding. I called ahead to be sure we could check in at 1 pm in order to get ready for wedding. They were so nice and said not to worry room would be ready. We arrived at 1 and despite a full house might... 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

The manager is very hospitable and accommodating. The rooms are clean. The location could be better, it's on a one way street. There is no breakfast but they do serve fresh coffee. I have stayed here on several times and have never been disappointed.

Great spot. Ron and the entire staff view this property as their own, and it shows! I cant say enough about their hospitality and assistance in finding things around town. Perfect location: not stuck in middle of congestion, and access to all w/in minutes. I checked a bunch of other places around, and they were overpriced. Super8 next door was... More
