I made a reservation over the phone with the Motel 6 up the road from this one (Wanamaker Rd.) only to get there and they don't have any rooms. After finding that all the other hotels on that street are booked as well, we try this Motel 6 (Fairlawn Rd.). We get here and they inform us that they're only... More

Ask the girl at the desk if I could see a room first. ( SO GLAD I DID THAT!) She was very polite, and handed me a key card & room number. I opened the door, to a thoroughly tossed bed, garbage all over the floor, and the stench pushed me back. ( I fully expected a naked man to... More

We wanted to spend under $50 so we selected this hotel. With all reviews we were little concern . But we had great clean room with new look. No problem at all. Great customer service. we will be back for sure.

The heat was constantly on, because of this, we had to leave our door open to have reprieve and compromise our security. The night manager woke us up late at night and stated, "do you know you have your hotel door open?" I stated, "Yes because it's so dang hot in here". Our first room assigned to us had a... More

Well, if Lilli2006s statement that the clerk told her is accurate, DON'T stay in room 113. It had bed bugs. This room is a corner room on the ground level next to the pool. Yes, it was a cheap room. It had linoleum floors as some one mentioned, and had been a smoking room since the sink had cig burns... More

My wife and I travel to Topeka every year for the Kansas Silent Film Festival and we stay at a different hotel across the street. We arrived a day early due to a severe winter storm coming through, and we stayed at this Motel 6. The room was very cold because cold air was coming in around the door frame,... More

This has been the absolute worst experience we have ever had!!! We had bed bugs crawling on us! My three yr old was terrified! They wanted to switch us rooms, I said no way we are out of here! There were two other couples checking in and I warned them. The employee justifies it by saying they only have bed... More

This place is awful. My mom booked it for me for a road trip because they allowed pets and was on the way. I thought $37 was a great price. I checked in very very late, and asked for a ground floor room. The room I got SAID non smoking but it reeked like a room that was just smoked... More

What a mistake this place was. The room smelled of Lysol and the mattresses were the worst I have ever slept on, must have been 30 years old. The bedspread was ugly and old. The floor had this linoleum that was made to look like a hardwood floor, never seen such a thing in a motel. The walls are paper... More

The first room they gave me was so cold and noisy from the traffic on Fairlawn Rd. I tried turning some heat on but it was blowing cold air. I called the front desk to switch to a room towards the backside of the motel and they gave me a space heater to use. After packing everything up and moving... More
