as a Marriott Rewards member,I cannot afford to sleep in hotels like these every single time, especially in midsummer when the prices are at their highest.As dog owner,Marriott's will charge a $100 room sanitation fee. Motel 6 accepts dogs at no extra cost (or $10, I don't remember), and besides, where else in Portsmouth can you book a room for... More

Don't stay at this hotel. Many negatives - but worse was the bed bugs. When I complained at the front desk, very unsympathetic. As it turns out, we were not the only ones. Another woman in the lobby at the same time, also complained. Although this is a budget chain, no excuse for cleanliness. The hotel is very noisy (room... More

Our room was not ready until 5:00pm. We checked in around 2:00 and were told to come back in an hour. We reserved a non-smoking room, but when checking in we were given the choice of a non-smoking room where the air conditioning was broken, or a smoking room. Our reservations was for a Saturday & Sunday night. The following... More

We booked this property with Motel6 on the internet a month in advance with 2 full beds. It was guaranteed with a credit card. When we arrived we were told they didn't have what we booked. The best they could do was 1 queen bed if we wanted air conditioning & no smoking. Our bill was $100.05 U.S. We expressed... More

Very basic room, It felt like a dorm room my daughter stayed in. Nothing fancy about it. Very hard to get in to and out of with a car. Boulevard the whole way down the centre of the road. Drove the GPS crazy. Not too far from the downtown area and we found free parking and a free shuttle...weekends only.... More

The Brief Review: It sounds like a good deal, but don't take it. It's not worth it. Stay some place else and enjoy yourself. The Full Review: We arrived at the Motel 6 on August 1 not expecting anything glamorous, but expecting a clean and respectable motel. I started to have my doubts when I found a large group of...

We arrived at the Motel 6 at two and was advised our room would not be ready until 3. Luckily there is a strip mall across the street that has a Trader Joes. When we back around 3 our room was ready. Apparently the rooms had been refurbished (?) and the decor was fun with an attractive contemporary theme. The... More

Had a reservation for a non smoking handicap accessible room. When I got there, the first thing I noticed was the stench of smoke in the tiny lobby. I was told they really don't take reservations but just hold a room but all they had was a smoking room or one with no air conditioning. Room was disgusting smell of... More

The room was what I was expecting, clean and basic. Seemed recently renovated, with fresh paint and flooring. Staff was friendly. The only downsides are the noise from the other rooms' doors closing, and a strong urine smell in one of the stairways. I would definitely stay there again, but use the elevator only.
