The room didn't smell very nice...kind of moldy. The bedspread had cigarette holes in it even though it was a "non-smoking" room. The room had some sort of heat lamps on the wall...they were silver things...when they were on, the room was hot, but as soon as they shut off, the room would get very cold. I don't normally feel...

I don't know where all the negative reviews are coming from. I live in Maryland and attend college in Florida. This is my overnight stay every time I travel to-and-from. Over summer breaks, I am alone and feel perfectly safe; over Christmas breaks I have one or two friends with me and they have no complaints either. This is my... More

Loud . Shady characters. Smelly room. Will definitely not ever stay here again, and would not recommend this place to anyone. Walking around people sitting outside rooms. Parked vehicle in front of office due to not feeling comfortable parking elsewhere.

I stayed at this Motel 6 for 6 nights, while my son was at the University of Tennessee dorms for a global competition. First impression was of a terrible odor. This was the harbinger of things to come. My room (non smoking) stunk of smoke. The television was color(just 1) green. The shower had soap in it that was older... More

Not the best Motel 6, but not the worst either. Got what we paid for, neither had any thing to complain about or praise about. Room was of average cleanlines and comfort for a budget motel. Room seemed to be a value for money spent.

My husband and I were at this hotel. At first we noticed suspicious malicious stuff going on. It didn't stop there.. Our car alam constantly went off. There were a white girl with a black guy that always seemed to set our alarm off and be scoping things out to see how far they can go. It is drug central... More

My partner and I have stayed in countless Motel 6s around the US. We have felt like we know where to set out expectations and appreciate the low price.. Until we stayed here. The first room had mold in it. The second room the clerk gave us smelled like cigarettes ("non-smoking") and wet dogs. There were some rather unsavory gentleman... More

We have stayed at Motel 6 before and were not expecting the Hilton. However, this place looked dangerous. If we had driven into the back parking lot before we checked in, we would have driven away. There were a lot of people wandering around, room doors were open, too many cars for the number of rooms. We felt safe inside... More

Worst place I have ever ever ever taken my family!! I stayed up and guarded the door so my wife and kids could rest!! I'm sure there was a lot of drugs sold there and maybe some been processed too.........Pit bull dogs, lowlife crack addicts, room next door had a continual flow of steady traffic(customers?) not the optimal place to...
