While our room was clean and the beds were comfortable, the decor was cold and uninviting. Orange and beige colors, modern style furnishings and all tile floors instead of carpet did not create a homey atmosphere. The price at over $100 per night was to high. We have stayed at other Motel 6 locations that were much nicer for half... More

I wasn't sure what to expect because I haven't reserved with Motel 6 before. It was a holiday weekend and last minute decision to take a trip. Motel 6 was one of 3 places available. I was pleasantly surprised! The facility was newly renovated, equipped with a microwave and mini refrigerator. The best sleep I've ever gotten in a hotel....it... More

This motel 6 was very clean and in a great location in Traverse City. The hotel is right across the street from the water and on the main drag full of restaurants. Vending machine had coke and my dew. Big deal for my family. Also has a decent pool and hot tub area too.

I left Sault Ste. Marie, Canada with several stops during the day, to arrive at this motel at 9pm to discover even though I had a confirmation number from Motel 6.com, that they "had no record" of my reservation or my conf. number. Be cautious with this one.

When I saw the pictures and first walked in, I was pleased that it wasn't a typical Motel 6. The building is new and the facilities are sharp. At about $130, it is one of the cheapest in the area for pet-friendly lodging. I was disappointed in the details, however, considering I spent that much. The internet was slow when... More

We rode our motorcycles into town Saturday, June 27, 2015 and found out several days in advance that most everything in town was booked. We decided to try the Motel 6. First, after reading previous reviews we found the stay to be very pleasant. The room was modern, clean, excellent hot tub and pool temps and the staff including Zach... More

When considering booking at this motel, I was VERY skeptical but showed some decent reviews so I booked it anyways being it was for only 1 night. Thought..."How bad can it be"! The location is right on the main road so that was good BUT.....!! The motel is situated between 2 very "seedy" looking "no name" motels and all of... More
