I was kinda worried staying here after reading the reviews, but it turned out to be pretty decent for the price. Rooms where clean, bathroom was clean, internet worked, staff were friendly even at 12 in the night, I honestly wouldn't mind staying here again. If you are looking for 5 star treatment pay more and stay somewhere else however... More

We made a reservation for this room on a booking website that listed among the room features "sofa and seating area". This was perfect for our group (three women, one man) as we didn't want to share sleeping space with someone who wasn't the same gender. There were two of the women with me (hold on, this is relevant later)... More

We only booked here because going to the Nascar race at Watkins Glen was a last minute decision. This was the only place available. It stinks of cigarette smoke. Carpet in room stained, the easy chair was so stained we wouldn't dare sit in it. The bedspread was stained, the blanket was absolutely filthy, dried stains of who knows what.... More

Avoid at all cost. The hotel is dirty, outdated and smells. Mold in the bathroom, stains on the walls and carpets. This hotel should $19.99/night. Motel 6 should remove their name from this hotel. No shampoo, conditioner, tissues, alarm clock, fridge.

Made reservations for 85 a night when planning a cross country bicycle trip. When we arrived sign outside said 49.95. After discussing for 45 minutes they relented and gave us the lower rate. Hotel room had 1 towel. When to front desk to ask for more and if possible shampoo. Said they had no more shampoo and called for towels... More

I used to stay at this place often, but the quality kept on slipping and I would now classify the place as flea bag ( I actually had fleas in my bedding once.). Housekeeping is not very good and the property is poorly maintained. The driveway is a mess. The only good thing about this place is it is cheap.... More

Average motel 6. Really could use some updating. The staff was nice. The location is a little crazy, it is on a one way street that looks like the on-ramp for the highway. It was not really dirty but you can tell it has not had a real good scrubbing for a while. The price was good. If your looking... More

I stay in hotels 300+ nights yearly. Bypass this one. The building looks good from the outside, but don't let that fool you. It is a really dirty place. I was tired and didn't feel like making a scene. The carpet is matted and stained, there are many areas of the furniture that are very dirty. The bathroom could use... More

This is actually the 3rd time I have stayed here. The good points are that Motel 6 is inexpensive, you get clean sheets, free Wi-fi and 24 hour coffee & tea in the lobby. Very few customers were there this time, so all was quiet. A pleasant check in, easy parking at the door. A security bar locks the sliding... More

I am not ashamed to stay in a cheap motel and I believe that the upper management of the chain would hold the individual managers to certain standards. Here are a few ways a manager of a motel can save money...don't clean the rooms, don't paint the rooms and don't provide hot water. They must be saving a bundle at... More
