Paid 60 bucks with taxes and fees for a clean room with good bedding and a decent tv. Can't be beat! Staff was helpful, other patrons were polite. Of course it's not a 4 star place, but for somewhere simple and affordable, this place can't be beat.

jeez, you get what you pay for - it's clean, it's cozy, it seems secure... sure, no shampoo or kleenex and just a shower, so if you want a full bath, book somewhere else, but there's actually a pool and the cheaper wifi ($3/night instead of $5) is fine and indeed, only on 'one' device at a time... oh well...

The room was comfortable. Only a shower, but no bathtub. Seemed clean enough. Staff was a little guarded and not extremely helpful. I paid for 24 hours of WiFi and it was cut off after about 15 hours. I complained and they turned it back on, but I found out they charged me another 24-hours for their mistake. Normally I... More

The room was clean, small with bare minimum. No hair dryer, napkins. The sheets were itchy on the skin. They copied all the occupants' ID. Which makes us feel uncomfortable, since this place looks shaky. The motel was almost full. The neighbors were hanging out late at night. Not travelers, looks rather suspicious. Wouldn't recommend this place.

My boyfriend and I were traveling and since it was 2am, we decided to stay at this hotel. The guy who checked us in was very nice. We got to our room and checked everything out. Nothing looked like it had been washed or cleaned. The sheets looked like they were slept in and had questionable looking hairs on them.... More

The room, pool, etc. were about what you'd expect from Motel 6. Could have lived without the rotten apple core and dirty cups under the bed, but that wasn't the first cleaning issue we've experienced at a Motel 6. We were really excited to find the Costco just a few minutes away, though. :D

This is one of those properties that is tired and worn out. This one needs to just be torn down and replaced. We needed a room with two beds and a bathroom. That's all we got! The room was so small that the two beds were right up against the walls, well, actually one was against the air conditioner. The... More
