I've travelled on a road trip using Motel 6s almost exclusively and this one is one of the better if not best Motel 6s I've stayed at. It's been recently renovated with hard wood floors and flat screen tvs unlike the previous ones I stayed at. This is the only Motel 6 that didn't charge for Wifi either, all the... More

Stayed for week on business. Floor in room must have been mopped with dirty water. Filthy. Manager, Jay, extremely unhelpful mitigating noise issues. Sheets so threadbare, it's ridiculous; also scratchy from either too much starch (?) or cheap soap. One washer, one dryer for whole premise for customers. "Heated" pool is around 60 degrees. Noisy, lousy mattress, flat pillows, rough... More

Greeted nicely upon enetering. We were directed to our room which had been recently renovated. The room was clean but we smelled a funky smell in the room the whole time we were there. You could hear the interstate as if it were in your room. The walls are paper thin so you can hear everything going on around you.... More

The first night I came back from dinner and asked the staff for extra blankets and he acused us of having more people in our room than we paid for I laughed because my wife and I came from Illinois alone so I went to my room and and went to bed. The next morning a different employee acused me... More

On our way from CO to IN, we decided to stop in Columbia MO for the night & stay at Motel 6 East based on travelers reviews on Trip Advisor. As we knew we wouldn't be arriving until evening, I called the desk in advance. Alan was very polite in asking for basic info & noted our ETA. He wished... More

On July 6th my family and I arrived at 9:10 p.m. We had a reservation and had verbally requested room 125 during our stay the previous week. This request was not honored and instead we were placed in room 112 and told it was the last room available. The room had a heavy mildew/mold smell and rain was coming in... More

Recently renovated...looks more like a 4 star hotel. Staff is very accommodating, Alan and the rest of the team are very professional. Rooms are spacious, clean and bright. Flat screen tv adds a nice touch. Thanks. Keep it up

After a VERY long and arduous drive from Amarillo, TX, I ended up in Columbia, MO around 2 AM, looking for a place to stay. I'd stayed at another Motel 6 in Amarillo, which was also a great experience, so I knew where I'd be staying when I got to Columbia. This was the first Motel 6 I happened upon... More

Friendly staff! Room was clean and comfortable! Had a small indoor pool that was wonderful and clean! Plenty of pool towels to use as well! Did not serve breakfast, but it was reflected in the price! Priced very reasonable to the point where if we added the hotel price AND bought breakfast at Steak and Shake and still saved money... More
