This was the second night in travel and another Motel 6. Aside from paying for WiFi that was slower than slow ( never was able to use it) the place isn't bad. I was alone but got a room with 2 beds. Room was clean, bathroom was clean and a/c worked well, again better later at night. Even though I... More

Awful place to stay. Arrived due to family member in hospital should have stayed in car. Front desk rude unhelpful. Room with huge stain at door to bed. Bed disgusting. Air conditioning knocked all night did not cool. Front desk could off nothing. TV did not work. DO NOT STAY HERE.

We checked in after a long day of driving so just wanted someplace that would take a dog and cat. We should have looked further. The room was tiny but ok. But the return of our neighbors at midnight was frightening. A couple who seemed to be high on something, with many small children who seemed to be permanent residents.... More

We were just stopping for the night and needed a place to sleep, so it was ok for that. But, they had a warning at the front desk that there would be no running water the next morning starting at 10 AM until later in the afternoon - I guess for remodeling purposes, so I am glad we weren't staying...

If I had known it was that bad, I wouldn't have stayed there. The carpet was dirty and smelled like lysol as if they were trying to cover up the pet stained carpet. I ask for a non smoking room that smelled like smoke and even had an ashtray on the desk. The bathroom was dirty and had hair in... More

I never read the reviews on this place, but after finding no vacancy at my first three choices, I called and they had one room left so I took it. After my stay, I read the TripAdvisor reviews and I concur. There seemed to be an inordinate number of permanent guests, many of whom had barbeques on trucks backed up... More

I stayed at this hotel in July 2013. It was a scary experience for two girls traveling. My first thought was that they were renting to long term tenants or prison overflow as there were numerous vagrant looking "guests" loitering around the property. I did not feel safe or comfortable leaving anything in my car. The bathroom was dirty and... More

The room was filthy and outdated. But most of all there are people living at this hotel full time. I did not feel safe and worried about a car break in. You can google the hotel and multiple arrests have been made at this hotel. Anywhere is better than here! The beds needed to be replaced 5 years ago along... More

We arrived here late in the afternoon and were pleased to be able to get 2 rooms side by side. The staff person was pleasant and accommodating. Our rooms were simple, but clean. Only toiletry item was a bar of soap, but after all we were staying in a Motel 6, so we were surprised to even have that! The... More
