The room was very basic but clean with but no coffee/tea making facilities. The ensuite was extremely small, towels were thin. WiFi was a disaster, extremely slow and needed the IT support for connection to smart phones. Staff were helpful, Coffee available in the mornings in the Lobby. Motel 6 is in an excellent location for the MBTA red train... More

I would avoid this hotel, unless your finances absolutely require it. When I checked in at 3PM with a confirmed reservation they had booked me into a handicap access room. I was told that was the only room available (at 3PM really?). When I went into the room, the smell of smoking was quite strong, despite a prominent no smoking... More

This motel was horrid. We have stayed in Motel 6's in the past. This motel was not a good example of the chain and needs to be put under new management in my opinion. First, thing I noticed was the odor of urine from the bathroom. Smelled like a badly maintained nursing home. Wanted to go elsewhere, but we were... More

I booked 8 rooms far in advance for my group. All the rooms not ready (started arrival about 2pm) . Last person got their room about 5pm (they got there around 1:30pm). No amenities in any of the rooms, water in the sink ran slow and drained even slower. No dresser to put away clothes, no refrigerator for some of... More

This place is the worst place I've ever stayed. Absolutely no amenities, e.g. no shampoo, no conditioner, no lotion, no iron, no luggage rack, no clock, no refrigerator, and believe it or not, no dresser for your clothes. The front desk clerk was folding the towels while she was checking people into their rooms. I had to wait to check... More

I live in New York and I'm a male 56 years old man. I decided to plan with 3 other friends to stay at the Motel 6 in Braintree Massachusetts and reserve 2 rooms with 2 double beds because we come here to fish in Quincy MA which is about 10 miles away. I'm an avid traveler and I was... More

This is a Motel 6, so I have a different set of standards for a lower-end budget hotel than some others when I do a review. I know I'm not getting any shampoo or tissues, so I brought my own. When I arrived, the front desk staff was very friendly and welcoming. I found a basic Motel 6 room for... More

Squad car in the parking lot at night. Yelling in the room next door. Signs in the room telling you to padlock the door and not answer for anyone. Overall uneasy feeling. The intense cigarette stench in my nonsmoking room doesn't help the atmosphere.
