“Smoker's Paradise - for the rest of us, Hell”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Sadly, our first clue should have been the selection of smoking or non smoking rooms. The overwhelming stench of stale cigarette smoke greets you at the front door. The non/smoking rooms are only separated by hallways; certainly was an all smoking hotel at one point based on the lingering odors.The smell is melded into the old carpets, and prolonged cigarette smoke clings to walls and doesn't disappear. They try to mask the smell with horrific smelling air freshener/cleaning products, which made it worse. And, we had an ashtray in our non-smoking room! Go figure! We slept with the window wide open all night, fortunately we were on the 2nd floor and could safely do this. On a positive note, the desk staff we encountered in the evening and morning were very pleasant, friendly and helpful. It appeared that some of the staff smoked, and seemed to do so right outside the main entrance or in the back office. Our room was clean, with the bare minimum of necessities provided. I suppose if you are a smoker and want a very inexpensive place to stay, this would be it. Otherwise, we highly recommend avoiding it. We almost left for another hotel, but we had several people in our group which would have made it a bit challenging. We will not stay there again.

We attempted to stay there August 3 and 4 to go to Silverwood, it was the only place available under $200/night, wish I would have spent $200 a night instead!!!!!!! We ended up changing rooms in the middle of the 1st night and driving home at midnight the second night due to fleas all over our stuff, the furniture and our kids!!!!!!!! GROSS!!!!!!!!!!! The staff complained about their jobs and with good reason, they had one person at the desk of a fully booked Motel and MULTIPLE COMPLAINTS!! Everytime I went to the desk for something there was someone there complaining about the cleaniness of something!!! DISGUSTING!!!! So unless you take your flea collar DONT STAY HERE! NOT WORTH A CHEAP PLACE TO STAY!

One night is ok for this motel six. Not up to typical standards as it seems to be a smoking motel eventhough it is classified as non smoking. Stale smoke wafts through the hallways. Staff very pleasant and would not stay there again

For $55 , it was a great deal. Hey its not the Bellagio ! Front desk gal was talkative and very nice. Security guard walks the parking lot all night as any vehicles to long for the parking lot , parked on the street. He made us feel like he was going to keep a watchful eye out for our truck and tow behind trailer we parked on the adjoining street. Lots of places right down the street to get snacks and drinks. (McDonalds etc etc )

This is one of the better Motel 6 we've stayed at. Personel are friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and they always give us a room (at our request) on the ground floor and close to an exit so we can walk our dogs. Plus there is night security in the parking lot. It must be a good place because the parking lot is generally full.
