I spent a few nights at this hotel with a friend recently, and we chose this location specifically because of the cheap rate for the rooms. The first time you start looking around, you start understanding exactly WHY it's the cheapest price around! The room was very no-frills... shower, tub, beds, etc. There was no dresser available, and no minifridge... More

The last time we stayed here, 2 yrs ago, I reviewed that it was a good place for 1 night but we stayed again and it's terrible! Must be new management and downgraded facilities; no carpeting (due to pets), no toilet seat cover (come on, really!), no extra pillow, blanket, very cheapest bedspread, no hairdryer, tiniest sliver of soap for...

Kim, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We strive to deliver a great guest experience, but it sounds as though we did not perform to our usual standards in this case. We are happy to be a pet friendly hotel and our award winning Phoenix redesign does feature wood-effect flooring, but not due our furry guests.... More

We are a married couple around 70 and we stayed one night. The motel is refurbished and OK for one or two nights. Would have liked a better wardrobe and drawer. Clean. Enough space for two. Wifi should be free. $4.99 for a couple of hours in the evening and half an hour in the morning is just too much.... More

I made reservations for a non smoking room as I have allergies and was under doctor care for paralyzed vocal chords. My reservations were made at least a month in advance. When I arrived I was told my reservation was NOT for a non smoking room and that's all they had available. I explained my situation regarding my health but... More

This was our first time staying in this chain, we didn't know what to expect. Room was clean on entry, however, other than making the bed, it was not cleaned during our stay. The bathtub didn't drain, the toilet splashes you when you flush, the towels were taken and notl replaced (only 2 towels on the second morning). They do... More

I'm not sure why I expected more from a Motel 6, but this hotel surely didn't meet my expectations. The rooms may be newly renovated, but as soon as you get settled, you start to notice everything that the fresh paint diverts your eyes from. Let's start the list...dried blood on the bathroom floor along with a nice hairball, burn... More

I know that Motel 6 is supposed to be no frills, but this is more like no frills minus minimum comfort! There were no tissues, no shampoo, conditioner or lotion (bring your own if you go), no hairdryer so I couldn't wash my hair in the morning, no lid on the toilet -- what's up with that? Even the lid... More
