This Motel 6 has a drive through check-in. But that's not all. It comes with a menu of shifty characters and a room scented with Crack smoke. The McDonald's next door drive-thru is open all night which is convenient if you have a car. Don't leave pet food on the floor because by morning the ants will be all over... More

Absolutely the worse Motel 6 I have ever stayed. The room was dirty and reeked of cigarette smoke. I witnessed drug use in the parking lot and a loud prostitute occupied the room next to mine. I have given up on Motel 6 after staying at this location.

Went to stay here with my family. Check in, the lobby smells of cigarettes. Drive around to our room, see a drug deal in the parking lot. Open the door to the room...walls are filthy, tubs dirty, smells gross. Go back to the lobby and request a refund and they offer me another room and an upgrade. Head to new... More

My family and I were on a budget so we decided to stay at the Motel 6 and it was actually nice. The woman who checked me in was very helpful. The pool was a bit small but it worked out well for my children.

The worse placed we have stayed on our trip so far. Half the lights in the room didn't work or even had light bulbs. Only one set of towels and no little shampoo/ conditioner (collect them for our kids). Tissue box was empty, toilet seat was a differant color then toilet and the bathroom door you had to lift and...

We stayed in this motel in July. The woman at the desk said that they would not take any checks. Usually, in this case I ask them to phone the manager and he always says traveller's checks are OK. In this case he said no. This is the first time this has ever happened at a Motel 6. I use... More

There are lots of Motel 6's throughout the USA, as there are a wide variety of 'users'. This one is better than average, locally managed and not 'corporate' - so the wi-fi is 'free'. Yes, our access was poor to non-existent at the start, but the helpful receptionist re-set 'our' modem, apparently there are six on the property, then it... More

We stayed here in late December 2012. All was okay and was what we expected. The room was clean but some of the fixtures are becoming dated. We had a very difficult time with the Internet. Also, the room next to us seemed to have people coming and going all night long.

Nice, affordable and great service! Close to home and always stay there for a little getaway. My husband and I randomly get a room locally instead of vacationing. Since our budget is low, we get a room for a weekend just to get away from home. Thanks for everything.
