I stayed here for 2 days en route to eastern Kentucky. Had no problems with anything. Location is near Walmart, gas stations and various eating establishments and just off I-75. Most people who stay at Motel 6 do so for one of two reasons: 1) Price and/or 2)No hassles with pets. I'm more interested in these 2 factors than getting... More

We stayed in this motel overnight because we had to be in town extremely early the following day. The motel was clean, no real complaints in that department, my problem was ...usually motels give complementary bottles of shampoo, we had forgotten ours and thought we could use that, but they didn't have any. The water pressure in the sink was... More

We just needed a place to stay for one night. We have a young baby and had a lot of stuff so really wanted something we could park near. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was dated but clean. Area seemed to be pretty safe and had no worries about the belongings in the car. Decent room for... More

What do you get for $45 a night? A rather saggy old bed, a shower, a small old-style tv with a remote that doesn't work, and a lamp. That's about it. No coffee, no shampoo, no fridge, no free WiFi (you can pay $2.99 to get it), no breakfast of any sort, and no atmosphere. And you get a main... More

We reserved the room for a week because Motel 6 claimed lowest prices per national chain. It was much more. We checked in and the room was horrible slanted, sagging beds, the smallest TV I've ever seen and they charge for wi-fi!!! $2.99 a day! Plus there was no fridge or microwave as promised. We were told they only had... More

Check in was easy. Staff is friendly. Room is updated and clean. They need to update the TV's though. And quit charging for internet, that is ridiculous. Good location and easy to get to. Also if you want micro and fridge that is extra.

We were just passing through Lexington and stopped at a number of motels off 75 that we typically stay in on our way to somewhere else. We check in around dinner time and are out fairly early, so our priority is a clean room with two beds in a fairly safe area. Our room was nice enough - clean plenty... More

This stop was an unplanned stop because of a heavy rain/thunderstorm, flooding city streets. It has no amenities, and the storm had knocked out Wi-Fi connections, but we were happy to stay somewhere that was clean, smelled good, and was bug free. It was shabby around the edges.
