We stayed in this hotel with my family for 3 days. I have to give a credit for the location, but the rest was horrible. If you want to have a safari with cockroaches and then sleep with bed bugs - this is a place for you. I have a terrible allergy on bed bugs and the personnel was unprofessional... More

Didn't use any of the additional services so i won't review those. The rooms, though, were great. Very well maintained and everything seemed to be in working order. Only thing i didnt like was the lack of parking on Saturday night (but that was more due to the idiots who double-parked)

The two stars are because of the person who checked us in. That's it. Otherwise, I would give them maybe half a star. Like the reviewer before me, I was honestly scared to go outside of the room. I went here because it was cheap and close to my wedding venue. We used a buddy system anytime we went out.... More

Staff was unprofessional and made up lies. Housekeepers were nosy and didn't do their job professionally. False advertising online. The place was ghetto and nothing like it was online. Not a place for family.

Smoke stench in a non-smoking room. Sold-out so no other rooms....only got $8 off and that took 15 minutes. We'd asked for a 5am wakeup but then realized there was no phone in the room. Very cold in the room...heater slow to get going... an hour after we fell asleap, we were rudely awakened by the fire alarm going off... More

I stayed here a couple of months ago when the new staff were still getting used to the change from Raddison to Motel 6. My Room was excellent with a Micro wave, Refrigerator, Ironing board and iron and a hair dryer. The TV has a large selection of channels and the bed is comfortable. There us a good sized table...

This motel was once a Ramada and was clean and still has the nice furnishings. The bed was very comfortable and I had a nice chair to sit in and a table for my paperwork. The room is nicely appointed, with plenty of storage a fridge and a safe for valuables. There is free WiFi and it is close to... More

I am honestly not someone who would complain on any website. However, when something is truly wrong, I believe something must be said. This motel misrepresents itself on hotel booking sites as the Ramada Inn including a free continental breakfast and nice photos. However, it's actually been purchased by Motel 6 but beware because it is a dirty, poorly run... More

I chose this hotel because it was conveniently located for my business. The room was very clean but tired looking. There appeared to be a lot of renters on the property. The only vending machine I found had only candy and water, no soda. The grounds were littered. The location was great. Only a block away from the Light Rail... More
