I stay in hotels 300+ days yearly. This hotel is in my top 10%. The exterior is well lit with large vehicle parking. The facilities are old and it shows in some areas. The check in was quick and efficient. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Overall..... a great place to stay.

I stopped here a few years back and it was decent and had just gone thru an update in the rooms. Wow, what a surprise how things deteriorate in a few years when no one take cares of them. The room stunk like a landfill, the parking lot was littered with trash and animals roaming thru. The guy at the... More

This is a recent addition to the Motel 6 Brand. The rooms are very large with premium comfortable beds. It has a pool and work out center. The truck parking area will accommodate 30-40 trucks. Restaurants and a Grocery store/ Hardware store are neighboring businesses. Easy access to I-40 and US 87

Motel under much needed renovation but still needs some attention to detail. On the good side: The price was right, and it was right off I-40. Christia at front desk was sweet and helpful at check-in. Park in front of your room with outside entrance which makes it so easy to unload luggage, laptop, etc. We were delighted with new... More

The staff was very friendly & helpful at the front desk. The rooms could have been cleaner. There was no breakfast included but there is a great family owned diner right down the street that serves breakfast. We thought the motel was over priced for what you get!

I've traveled I-40 for years. The Irish Inn was a good place to break the trip several years ago. It deteriorated beyond hope. I noted that a Motel 6 franchise had purchased and renovated it, so after passing it a couple of times, I realized that this last trip Shamrock would be about my limit. I didn't check Tripadviser, as... More

We decided to take a chance on this one despite mixed reviews since it had changed hands and seemed to have gotten better reviews after that happened. This location looks like it was a really nice place at one time. There's an indoor swimming pool and bar area, a fitness room, and amenities I don't normally associate with Motel 6.... More
