From the cat pee smell to the beeping smoke alarms even after we replaced the battery. We were afraid to get undressed in this place. This place is terrible! Stay anywhere else! The best part of our stay was when we left.

We arrived at the hotel around midnight on 4-15-15 and the lady at the front desk saw us at the locked door and walked away. They we found the other door open and were booked in.

Because of the good location this Motel 6 needs to be torn down. Rebuilding on the same location would be the only possible solution for this awful place where the rooms smell so bad that we couldn't possible stay there.

Ok so we stayed here 2 nights whIle in town for the A&M v SC football game. All other hotels were $300+ so for $50 you get what you pay for. But this place is awful. Dirty stains on the bed, carpet had not been vacuumed in quite some time. The outdoor hallways actually smell like urine, can only imagine... More

The Girl at the front desk was so kind, but that was the only positive thing. The room felt damp and gross. There were roaches running across the microwave. Opened the dresser and there was not just mouse dropping but rat droppings. The shower was GROSS. I never even undressed, I sat in a chair all night and watched the... More

There is plastic on the bed and when you ask to have it removed desk clerk says no and will be charged if removed. Had a guest checked into room while I was in room. Room card was deactivated at least twice a day. The pool has a dirty look to it.

bed bug infested. no management around on the weekends to make any executive decisions. lousy wi-fi; intermittent at best. not a place to really relax in while checking out lexington & richland counties. their proximity to the river walk is great, but i'm sure they ain't had nothing to do with that!...
