This is by far the dirtiest motel I have ever stayed in. I was travelling from Sarnia to the Soo via Michigan and stopped here for the night, as the weather wasn't great. If it wasn't so late with poor weather, I would have (should have) asked for a refund and pushed on. Instead, I brought in my own pillow... More

I checked into this hotel in the middle of the night. I didn't smell very good but I was exhausted so I payed and checked into the room. I slept for about 3 hours. I got up to use the bathroom and found that the toilet was clogged so obviously hadn't been cleaned after the last people checked out. There... More

The Ritz this isn't...but it is inexpensive & clean. Granted it is outdated. I thought the staff friendly. I felt safe. Would I stay here again--possibly if I needed to stay someplace in that area. It is one of the Motel 6s that have not been remodeled.

Clean, good price, older motel. Staff very pleasant. Price was right. Minutes to , Restaurant close by. Bed was clean. Center of everything, only 10 mins from Saginaw, birch run, Frankenmuth. Recommend for inexpensive stay but if looking for high end motel wouldn't recommend, but overall would stay again

Nice Place. Great rate. Center of everything, only 10 mins from Saginaw, birch run, Frankenmuth. Stay here and save bunch. My pref. was nice and clean room and close to the proximity. When I read the past comments, I was shocked to see it. Ofcourse, you pay $45.00, you should expect that service and not hampton frills. Be real.

This Motel was absolutely terrible. We arrived around 4PM, checked in and left for our festivities in Frankenmuth. We returned around 9PM (without even visiting our room prior, assuming it would at least be livable) to find holes in the walls, dirty carpet, the AC barely worked and was extremely noisy, the room smelled of cigarettes, and the sheets were...

Stayed at the Motel 6 on I-75 at Holland Avenue Exit #149B. I think the sheets were clean, but it was so dark in the room I couldn't be sure. Couldn't see any sign of bedbugs, but it smelled when we got in the room. I had to wash everything that was in my bag when I got home. Couldn't... More

(Motel booked online)The weekend of our visit to the town of Frankenmuth everything was pretty booked & leaving us little choice but to stay elsewhere. We arrived in a town that looked nothing like the happy, festive city. The city we arrived in was right off the interstate & is called Buena Vista. It is an old town that appears... More
