I gave them 5* because we had a what I believe to be an isolated issue and they made it right. It’s rare when you’re at an establishment and they take accountability for mistakes. I understand mistakes happen; nobody is perfect, but own it and fix it which they did, thank you. The check in was a breeze and the... More

A recent visit to the area found us needing a place to sleep. We were not interested in amenities or extras, just a clean room and a place to get some Z's before heading home. Motel 6 fulfilled our needs. The motel is cramped between other properties and the adjacent property (they share a parking lot) does look a little... More

It took 20 minutes for me to get someone to the front desk to check in. Came back to the front counter for pool towels and to check on the cot that was supposed to be in our room and waited an additional 25 minutes for service. Asked for a refund to leave and was refused. Front desk person was... More

This was way more than I expected as it was probably the best motel 6 I have ever seen. In addition to being clean and spacious, the motel provided a refrigerator and a microwave. The also had an indoor hot tub and pool. This gets 5 stars because from the value shopper/bargain hunter end, it greatly exceeded what I was... More

Excellent place to stay, friendly staff, clean hotel, beds are comfortable. Well worth the money, I do recommend this hotel. No problems at all good safe place all around. Really like the floating hardwood flooring.

Quick overnight stay. Traverse City is expensive and all we wanted was an inexpensive clean place to sleep. This fit the the bill. Clean room, great bed (firm), quiet room. Clean plush towels. There are no frills here which was fine with us. We only require coffee available in the morning. Do not expect anything exceptional-this is a basic room-kind... More

Just spent the weekend in Traverse City and was very happy with Motel 6 because the place is nice and clean and the staff is helpful and efficient! The best part is that your dogs stay free! Most places tack on extra fees for dogs, but not Motel 6! It was a great experience and the kids have an indoor... More

The rooms with clean with lots of towels, nice modern decor too! The room had a fairly new TV, mini-fridge and micro, helpful staff and easy parking lot access at the front and side rear. Wifi access was great . Only negative was the small pool and pool room which could use a coat of paint. FYI - floors are... More

If you are expecting a Holiday Inn or Ramada, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a cheap enough motel that is clean and relatively comfortable, then this one will do. We went in knowing exactly what amenities to expect, so we knew that things would not be fancy. But it was immaculately clean, the... More

First of all, it is a Motel 6, and they do not tend to be high end places to stay. I was not expecting much, other than a cheap place to sleep, but I was pleasantly surprised. Check in was quick and friendly. I was very happy that there was an elevator since we were on the second floor. We... More
