Motel 6 is always the butt of jokes about places to stay, but come on, when you're visiting a place, you don't want to stay in the room all the time, you want the room to be where you rest and relax after doing the town. You want the room to be good, not expensive - that's why I always... More

This is the nicest cheap motel I have stayed at. Laminate flooring and updated decor make the room look classy. The guy at the front desk was polite and friendly. The only issue is the faulty bathroom design, water sprayed out of the shower onto the floor and I stubbed my toe on the poorly placed drain.

If this was a queen size bed, we make them bigger on the west coast. Staff was on the rude and uncaring side. No hair dryer in bathroom, bring your own. The tub was weird. No fan in the bathroom. I think the room may have been a closet in a past life.

Recently updated, friendly and helpful staff, no charge for pets. Nicer than other Motel 6s we have visited. Many restaurant choices nearby. Has no pool so kids were a bit disappointed. Would definitely stay here again.

Newer remodeled Motel 6 with wood laminate floors and updated décor. Do not stay on the 1st floor as the 2nd room floors amplify anyone walking around the room into the first floor room. Heard the people above us throughout the night. The beds were soft and squishy and the mattresses made noise. It was hard to fall asleep because... More

I went to Kearney to see the Sandhill Crane migration and stayed at Motel 6. It was great for my purpose - almost the closest motel to the state park south of Kearney where there is great free Crane watching.

If you travel with dogs as we do, nothing is as welcoming as a Motel 6 sign. Many have been upgraded and you cannot beat the price. Usually plenty of space to walk your pet/pets and you feel welcomed. Priceless. This one in Kearney just fine, fridge and microwave and WiFi for around $50. We were there to see and... More

We traverse the country several times a year as we live in New Mexico and visit family in Wisconsin. When we travel we often stay overnight somewhere in Nebraska. On our trip back home after the holidays this year, we chose the Motel 6 in Kearney, NE and were not disappointed. We had a good, basic clean nonsmoking room with... More

We were traveling across route 80 and our car broke down - right past the rest area after this little town. The tow guy suggested to return to this town as it was closer then the next town - over 97 miles - so I asked to take us to the cheapest hotel in the area. It was 8PM and... More

We arrived in Kearney around 10pm, looking for a clean place to stay after a day of driving. I checked at a couple of the other local hotels and the best rate they would offer was $89+tax. Too high in my opinion when I'll only be there to sleep and shower. So I stopped in at the Motel 6. The... More
