The staff were fine at checkin. Room had no coffee maker or hair dryer. I was glad I had my own pillow. My room had a connecting door to the next one and I could hear normal conversation until the wee hours of the morning and then the person snoring. Very poor sleep. I could not wait to get out...

It's a room. It's clean. The TV works and they've been upgraded to modern flatscreens. The premium wi-fi is 5mbit down / 1mbit up. If you want inexpensive basics, this is a great spot. Sometimes other guests seeking inexpensive basics aren't always so quiet. Bring earplugs.

We were in town for a concert in Seattle booked last min and all the 200 and under rooms were booked so we ended up in Tacoma for the night at motel 6. Rooms were clean. Pool looked great but we didn't have time to swim. Stayed 2 nights.

On my way to B.C. I just needed an affordable motel for the night, and found it on the north side of Tacoma at Fife. Standard breakfast fare: coffee. No fridge or microwave, but the rooms were clean and quiet. The front desk crew was friendly and efficient, and I wasn't worried about my car being broken into!

We stayed here 5 nights. If you are into 50's modern this is the place for you. I liked the fact that there was tile on the floors, not old rugs. The beds were comfortable and the rest room has been remodeled with new sink , toilet and funky towel holders. The pool was clean and kept up. If think... More

My son and I stopped in our way to Glacier NP. We were greeted by a super friendly staff at the front desk. Our room had two beds. The room was nice the carpet was a little stained and worn but appeared clean. The room was nice and comfortable. We asked for some assistance in finding smoked salmon. The whole... More

Rude front staff, indifferent management, gave us a police blockaded room and then switched us out. Room was barely comfortable though it was neat and clean, overpriced for no amenities at all.. Won't use this chain again.

I needed a place for the night on our trip from SeaTac to the Coast of Oregon. I reserved this room only because it was the closest to my "budget." $75.00 for the night was too much to spend on this motel, but I was impressed enough to write a review. Hey, its Motel 6! They did leave the light... More

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
