We had not stayed at a modernized Motel 6, so were looking for a competitively-priced room with no other expectations. What we found was a pleasing surprise. It was easy to check in, there was no clutter and it was no chore to ascertain nothing of ours was left behind. The bed was spartan yet comfortable, with good pillows. The... More

I am puzzled by the bad reviews I am reading here. We travel from Sweden and are used to European hotels so were not sure what to expect. The recently remodeled room was very clean with comfortable beds and pillows. Although it is beside a busy highway it was very quiet. The personnel are extremely friendly and accomodating - we...

There was hair in the bed and shower. They advertise free wife, you actually have to pay for it. They advertise a heard pool, it wasn't heated. It wasn't even open. The walls were thin. You could hear everything. There wasn't even a box of tissues in the room.

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
