My BFF & I stayed here during our girl's weekend. The staff was nice and helpful. We met a few other people who were staying at the hotel also, and they were very friendly. The hotel is right there by Two-Notch road, where EVERYTHING is, (restaurants, gas stations, the movies, the mall, the hwy). Our room was nice, nothing too... More

We stayed here a few years ago while attending basic training graduation and decided it would be a good place to stop on our way back from Disney. That was a mistake. 4 years ago we had a nice room that provided a decent night sleep. This past December I got out of the bed, grabbed what pillows I could... More

First impression was the party going on outside. A large group of intoxicated thugs running around the lobby screaming about the need for security cause someone just fired 2 shots. 13 hrs of driving, I just paid my $49, clutched the grip on my S&W .40 and proceeded to my room. How bad can it be. Just need sleep. Well,... More

The friendly staff was the only upside of this hotel. I had previously never stayed at a Motel 6 and certainly never will again. This property is dirty, dingy and and they nickel and dime everything. No facial tissues and the bedding was blood stained. No shampoo provided but you can vend a miniature bottle for $2.00. Wifi is available... More
