We use Motel 6 often on our road trips because they are dog friendly and affordable. This one, however rates a 'pass'. The folks at the desk were great, friendly and helpful but beyond that, it was terrible. The whole area around our unit smelled like dead, rotting fish and the unit was in a very poor state of repair.... More

Carpet had piles of dog hair & old gum, the A/C was all beat up with parts hanging from it, the light on the wall was rusted, the smell was horrible, we didn't even get to the bathroom to check it out, went straight to the lobby and checked out and got a refund, this is by far the worse... More

The bathroom was decent,but the furniture looked like it was falling apart,the comforter had several holes in it,the light fixtures were cracked,and we saw a bug on our bed. Also,the tv was so staticy that we couldn't even see the picture. Would not stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel because it was low price, the staff were very kind and very helpful. The location wasn't the best but not bad. We chose this low-price hotel because we were going to be gambling Later that evening. The room was clean and all we needed was a place to sleep. Only a short drive from downtown... More

This was a poor night's sleep between the noise and bed that assumes the shape of a cereal bowl. Requested a nonsmoking room, that we were assured only had ashtrays to catch your car keys... Light over the sink wasn't working, no shaving before leaving. No shampoo. Outside light turned off about an hour before dawn, made loading the car... More

We were casino hopping and just wanted a place to catch a quick nap on Friday and Saturday night. This was not the place to accomplish that. Walls are paper thin, car noise from the street woke us up as did people walking and talking down the 2nd floor walkway. We had a "no smoking" room that had cigarette burns... More

The only positive is that the staff was nice and social. There was a cop in the parking lot so we felt a little safe. But now we know he is probably staking out the place. The walk to the room smelled like pot heads smokin up a room. The room is very outdated but that's not a problem. It... More

The hotel was terrible! The refrigerator was moldy, microwave was dirty and the mattress pad had a fresh bloodstain on it. As in they just made the bed and didn't even try to wash them. The room was a smoker room, was stale, holes in bankers and sheets, chair and curtains were dingy and stained. Only positive was when we... More

One of my friend's had never been to Louisiana so me, my boyfriend, and him hit the road and booked a hotel at the cheapest we could find online with a pool so we could take a dip once we got there. The moment we pulled up I was already nervous about it. The hotel was being staked out by... More

This hotel was a disappointment and far unlike some of the Motel 6s I've stayed at in the past elsewhere. The staff did not have my room ready by check in time. Couldn't understand how and why they could not furnish any rooms in a reasonable amount of time post check in. The shower water did not get hot once... More
