We stayed two nights and there are no daily maid service due to a "cost reduction" policy as the receptionist said. It's a Pet friendly Hotel with too many cats around with no maid service ? Bad Idea! The rest of our stay was almost on my minimums!

Stayed one night. Room recently redone with the 'wood' floor. Everything worked. room clean with no smell in non smoking room. Decent quality motel six. As always, bring your own alarm clock. Flat screen TV on wall. Had to travel to find good restaurant a few miles down the interstate. IHOP and McD one exit away.

This 6 had been renovated and was very nice. It was a large room and the beds were very comfortable. It is easy access to the major highways. The front staff was very welcoming. It was very quiet even with the highway right out front. The things you miss with no hair dryer, clock, frig or microwave were ok because... More

We arrived with a previous reservation, and when we've got to our room it was upside down and full of food junk! There was no more room so we had to start looking for another hotel al 1:00 am! It was awful!

We stopped here for three reasons: pet policy, location and price. The location is very co0nvenient located on the feeder of I-35; the pet policy is very generous in terms of availability; the rate for a modern room is very reasonable (especially during tourist season); however, the maintenance issues detracted greatly from our enjoyment. The A/C was on it's last... More

Pros: No bed bugs Clean Updated room style Easy access to I35 Cons: Uncomfortable mattress Thin sheets If a comfortable bed is important to you, then keep looking. The mattress in my room was flat and you can feel the springs. Best to bring your own sheets as these are thin. At least the hotel is clean and you do... More

The staff said that they are fully booked and cannot give me another room.. decided to... More

The room was quite small, one of those they renovated a few years ago. It was neat and mostly clean. Had a wood-look laminate floor. They are easier to keep clean than carpet, but not with a vacuum cleaner - needs mopped daily. The floor was sticky and the bottoms of my white socks got dirty. I came in late... More

This is going to sound terrible but this was by far the worst place I've stayed in all of my travels. The front desk woman acted as if I were inconveniencing her by checking in. She couldn't tell me where my room was and I'm about 98% positive there was a prostitute checking in behind me. I told myself that... More
