I have stayed here twice in the past year, and I've never had a bad experience. Lots of negative reviews here about the staff, but everyone I encountered, from the desk staff to housekeeping, was very friendly and accommodating. In fact, I once showed up at noon when check-in wasn't until 3pm, and the gal at the front desk made... More

Very rude customer service. Says right on your receipt after checking in "No Refunds". Should have checked the room before paying. The rooms are a mess and nasty. Holes in the walls and blankets. The furniture is beat up and looks bad. The rooms and hall way smell bad and I would think that is from all the animals I... More

First time staying here and will never again. When you first walk in on the counter is a sign "No Smoking in rooms or you will be put on a DO Not Stay List" I should have walked out. I was woken up at 3am by my son having an asthma attack. I noticed right away the room had smoke... More

Old, run down looking room. Dirty carpet. Holes all over wall. Not very clean. Nice chair, but dirty. Pillows were so flat I wondered why they even provided them! Warn out blankets. Bex was surprisingly comfortable! But no shampoo! Too much money for what you get. Would not recommend.

First time I have ever left a hotel, and I have stayed in some shady places. The combination of the neon orange sign posted by the Michigan state police on the room across the hall warning that a meth lab had been shut down in that room and the shirtless, drunk guys at 4pm just hanging out in the parking...

Checked in and the room smelled like smoke and was filthy. The building was falling apart, no amenities but a bed and a 20 inch tv. I spent 10 minutes there, got a refund and left. Stayed at the holiday inn that night, paid $50 more for the real deal. Ill never go budget again.

When I first started staying here this motel was O.k. it's a Motel 6 so didn't really expect much. In the 3 years since it has gone downhill. Rude staff, smelly hallways and dusty rooms. Noise all night in the hallway and outside. Twice now the pool has been closed while I was there. You would think they'd offer a... More

My uncle stayed at Motel 6 this evening. I live close by so I decided to drop some dinner off for him. I walked into his room and sat down on one of the beds by the wall. All of a sudden the back of my leg started itching really bad. I looked at my leg and there were two... More
