This is relatively good motel in a quiet place, standard service as usual in Motel 6 (i.e. paid wifi and nothing) but the rooms were clean and staff OK. No breakfast as usual but really satisfactory for one night stay.

My wife won't stay at Motel 6s; however, when I'm traveling solo and I just need a bed and a shower they work for me. This one is getting a "make over" and my room was Spartan but clean and functional. I love the people who whine about "No shampoo." Well DUH! Someone please tell me of any Motel 6... More

Televisions must have been purchased at Goodwill and shampoo is not supplied. Motel 6 used to have higher standards. Not worth the 60+ bucks. The neighborhood appears to be decent. I wouldn't stay here again.

I'm always looking for a bargain and I'm not a particularly snooty traveler. Most of time, all I need is a clean hotel room in a safe area. I suppose I got that at the Motel 6, but that's about it. This hotel is about as basic as you can get. The building is an old 2-story motel built in... More

Stayed here for one night and found it quiet and comfortable. After bring in my luggage I found the TV did not work, I called the front desk and the only option she could give me was to move to another room. I declined that and just stayed in the room, didn't want to move everything to another room. In... More

Overall the service from the front desk was outstanding. The room could have had more soap or shampoo at least (also why I bring my own) but for the ones that don't you best bring yours or you'll be out of luck. The pool is heated and cleaned daily. The rooms were comfortable, clean, and somewhat spacious.

We stayed here a couple of times. The staff are excellent and go out of their way to help. The rooms are clean but decor is dated. There is a very good restaurant on the same block - very convenient. Make sure you bring your own shampoo, conditioner and blow dryer as they are not supplied in the room.

I have stayed at this motel to separate times. The first time I stayed there the heater did not work and they offered to mput me in another room. They gave me extra blankets and I just stayed in the room. They did give me half off of my room! Two of the staff people did a great job to... More

When I handed the lobby to check in on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 I noticed there was a toilet plunger wrapped in a plastic bag. In the course of my checking in I saw one of the motel guests into the lobby bar the plunger and return it a few minutes later with water dripping from the plastic bag wrapped... More
