The room is very basic but what do you expect from a Motel 6? It is very convenient to the freeway with a ton of food options right around you. The beds were extremely comfy and I had one of the best night's sleep in a long time. Negatives: very rude people upstairs from us who stood out on the... More

After a less than warm welcome, we checked into our room. Wi-fi, microwave, refrigerator, and yes even the darn hair dryer are added expenses. The room was run down with a sagging mattress but worse than these was the overwhelming smell of cat urine. We marched back to the front desk and we rudely given a refund. We found much... More

I started staying at this location due to long commutes to work. The rooms all smell funky but, if you bring some febreeze its passable for a cheap cheap night. This is more like I have no possible other option, kind of motel. The Night staff is very friendly but, their management is incompetent. They remind me of slimey car... More

I stay at Motel 6 often since my company has a corporate account with them. Some are barely passable, some are improving recently and some are actually very good. I've recently come to understand that Motel 6 participates in programs that enable low income or the homeless to be able to stay for for extended periods. I would like to... More

My husband and I decided to stay at this hotel while we look for an apartment near Ft. Lewis. The motel is decent and the room is clean. I wasn't too happy about the bathroom door not having a lock or there being so few electrical outlets though. There's also a very foul odor coming from the mini refrigerator. It's... More

We were looking for a reasonably-priced one-night lodging when visiting our daughter at UPS. What we got at this motel was a horribly dirty room that left a bad odor in our nostrils long after we had left. I have done a lot of camping and traveling in the US, Europe and Africa & can honestly say that it's one... More

Stayed here for a quick overnite stay. The location is a little bit of a challenge to find. The room was very basic. Hot shower and clean sheets. It did the job. There is only a few diners in the area.
