This motel is dirty. Dirty carpet, dirty blankets, dirty shower curtain. The smoke detector was hanging of the wall. The toilet kept flushing during the night. There was a really bad smell in the room. The outside felt unsafe. Bad wifi.

We were traveling and we were looking for "pet" friendly hotels. We identified this one and when we arrived the lobby was empty....very little furnishings....however the lady at the desk was very friendly. We obtained our room and what a shock.....the person next door left the TV on loud for her pets. It was so loud that after thinking she... More

I'm not sure what kind of property this was before Motel 6 took it over, but it's unique! It's a bit hard to find -- on a side road behind a sports field off University Avenue, and the entrance road is almost hidden. I didn't see a sign marking the office, either. Look for the four columns painted as musicians... More

Room very nice and clean. No amenities of course. Pool filthy. Bathrooms broke in lobby. Would stay again. Front staff not very helpful no breakfast as is typical no restaurants nearby except for Cracker Barrel which had terrible service.

A lot of lights with plug in for cell phones and other items. Had a nice desk. The AC ran really cold... More

We checked in around 1246 am and we were treated very nicely. We needed a room for 2 adults and a small dog. They are pet friendly and were very clean and the clerk was very helpful. My daughter went around for coffee in the a.m and the pot was empty so one of the guys on staff went to... More

What you will get for your $55: basic roomy sleeping quarters with fridge, microwave and tv. Lots of interstate noise, smokers smells (I was in a non-smoking room and smell came through bathroom vent), mattresses with lots of springs. Housekeeping needs a refresher course - lipstick stain on pillowcase, bedcover had stains and a couple of holes, used towel left... More
