I checked into this Motel6 because i usually have great experiences with them. Friendly staff, safe locations, clean. The orange rooms are ugly, but I can easily get over that. The location here is unfortunately not the best and not the worst. Since I was traveling alone with my daughter, I would have felt safer at a different location. It... More

Very nice motel, and the staff was very helpful and professional. The rooms are all renovated and up to date, for the price u can't find any place better. They have good security on property in the evening and he is always visible.

We stayed at this hotel because we are relocating to San Antonio and arrived very late at night. The manager, who is very rude, even refused to let me throw my trash on the property; he said he was going to charge me. We needed to extend our stay, Long story short, he told us he wasn't going to rent... More

I leave reviews for everything now, and I call them as I see them. I was in a pinch and needed a room, and pretty much everything I normally stay at was booked solid or way overpriced (in the hundreds of dollars). I have stayed at motel 6 before, so I pretty much knew what to expect in most cases.... More

Room cost about $125 for 3 days. The pictures of the room and hotel are exactly what you get. The room was updated with modern deco and was very clean. Even had a flat screen TV. For the price I was expecting the place to be run down, its not top quality but it was better than what I expected... More

The place was less than $50 for two of us. It was a perfectly functional room. Two beds, table with two chairs, a shower, towels, a toilet, a tv. It was a no-frills room, but I was just there to sleep, and we managed to do that quite well. The room was very clean and modern looking. The pool looked... More
