Smoke smelling room. Wifi shouldn't cost money. Hotels next to this place made this thing look like a dump. I am horrified with my stay here and refuse to stay at another Motel 6. Don't stay here. Ever.

Looks to be a petty busy Motel 6. It was decent for the price, fairly clean for the price and fairly friendly for the price. Near or within walking distance to a few good places to eat. Would stay again.

Hotel was blah. Wi-fi does not work very well. Room was ok. Nice setup and updated look. Room smelled a little funny, almost like feet. Pillows were flat and blankets were thin. However, the staff is friendly and will give you extra blankets, pillows, and towels if you ask. Cheap price, cheap motel, you get what you pay for.

front desk employees were as good as they come but the room was filthy. I had to wash my feet after walking barefoot in the room, hair (not mine) in the bed. I took just a wet washcloth over the surfaces and it came back absolutely filthy. I know it's a budget chain, but they can at least spring for... More

Expected this to be one of the poorer Motel 6's but this one is pretty nice. Updated "modern rooms" and a flat screen tv. Was around only $45 when I went and thought that was a real good deal. Now in the summer when it is significantly higher, it might be a different story. Although I'm sure it still is... More

Avoid at all costs. My litany of complaints (which yes, I did pass on to M6 corporate): - I booked online at the M6 site a day in advance (Monday) and asked for a quiet room. QUIET ROOM is explicitly noted on my email receipt. Yet upon checking in the staff put me on the highway side of the building,... More

Requested non-smoking room well in advance but got stinking (only room left) smoked filled room. Nasty, filthy, stinking, dirty, out-dated with "sticky" linoleum floors. I can't say enough bad things about this place. Also got one wash cloth for three people. Not even good enough for my dog. Did have good water pressure and girls at front desk were nice.... More

Typical Motel 6--near the highway, basic accommodation, good price. Check in was quick and friendly. This was the only Motel 6 that ever called me after check in to see if the room was ok. Wifi was good and there was plenty of hotel water. It's an easy trip from here to Mt. Rushmore. The access is a bit odd... More

Temp in the mid 80's, and they have not yet turned on the A/C. The room was extremely noisy, both from the freeway right next to it and the clientele carrying on throughout the night. No kleenex, shampoo, coffeemaker, blowdryer. Bedspread was filthy. When they asked the cleaning person if the room was ready, she said yes, but tell them... More
