This is a basic motel. Tiny registration area with a foreign guy that's hard to understand. He was nice and professional, but we didnt understand each other. Outside walk up rooms. The room was clean the bed was comfy. There s no fridge or microwave and you must have your own shampoo. There is a complimentary bar of soap for... More

Pretty standard Motel 6. Room was updated but you can still tell it was all cheap stuff, but at least it gives the outward appearance of being nice. Beds and pillows were average at best, shower was very tiny and did not appear to be completely clean. Door handle to the bathroom also turned the wrong way (took me a... More

The hotel location is convenient. Right off a major highway. That's the big plus. And within earshot is an Einstein's Bagels. The room was musty but clean. Even though it was non-smoking, it smelled funny. Internet is not free: $2.99 or $5.99 depending on the speed. You get asked for a photo ID when you check in and they scan... More

During my business training trip, we all stayed at this motel. It was right next door to the training center. Very convient; however they had a limited breakfast each day. The room was ok and did enjoy the free movie channel.

Stayed here a year ago on my way south. Travelled with 2 large dogs and thought that Motel 6 was a respectable chain. I had another reservation with a motel 6 in S. Carolina and cancelled it based on this stay. Had requested a non-smoking room and the room received reeked of smoke and the walls were covered in nicotine.... More

The room was clean, which is a plus, but it was also very humid. Maybe it's the way the area is but when I got into bed, the sheets felt damp. I also hung a shirt to dry, and it never did after a full day. The toilet had a leaky valve too. I had to pull the top cover... More

The room itself, in appearance, was like a cheap, low-buget scandanavian indy film remake of A Clockwork Orange, except less entertaining and a lot filthier. Some ikea furniture scattered around kind of seems like a good effort, but if the towels have dirt and other people's hair on them it sort of destroyes any good intentions one could possibly make....

I've stayed at this location a few times while passing through, and it seems to get worse each time. My most recent stay, being just a few days ago, proved to be the most disappointing of all. The rooms are advertised as being 'modern' or 'updated'- though the only noticeable 'update' is a coat of paint & thinner sheets. I... More

We stayed there this past Sat night The place was clean although it smelled a little musty. There were no amenities and the towels could have been used for sand paper. The check in was prompt and they had coffee in the lobby the next morning for my wife so all was well. Not a place I really want to... More
