“You get what you paid for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

I would say that its value for money. Its perhaps one of the cheapest hotels in Washington DC. Compare it to Comfort Inn just down the road which is about twice the price.
People shouldn't expect more than what they get considering the amount paid in a city like Washington.
I stayed there and of course could have gotten better value for MORE money elsewhere. I was particularly impressed and thankful when I was allowed to go back into the room, after 12noon check out time, to freshen up (at no extra cost) before my flight which was for about 6pm that day. I had run some last minute errands earlier and gotten back to the hotel at about 12 noon

The room floor was sticky and not clean. You can hear other people arguing in other rooms. I did not feel safe. The nearest metro was not near. No breakfast or internet access. It was not cheap and the service was non-existent.

This is the worst motel I have ever stayed in. Period.

I routinely stay in motels of similarly category on road-trips, so I should know. Here is why it is worse:
1. Cramped room
2. 3 storeys with a single elevator that does not work half the time
3. No breakfast, no internet, no shampoo, no conditioner, no fridge in the room
4. Stained and unclean linen, uncomfortable bed mattress.
5. Cockroach in the room. Also bitten at night, so presumably bedbugs.
6. Heater in the room is unusable because it smells like rubber is burning inside.
7. The key card stops working every single day, despite keeping it away from everything else.
8. I had to remind them twice to fill up the coffee, which is pretty much the only thing they serve.
9. Noisy guests and thin walls

Strongly recommend you stay away from this place.

100 dollars a night!!!! far away from Downtown, you get dirty sheets, dirty bedspread with mites, dirty bathroom, the tv with a few channels and a lot of distortion. dirty hallway, people smoking marijuana on the stairs. children screaming all night. people constantly asking for money or cigarettes. nobody came to clean the room. heating expels dust. access to the door of the room must be reprogrammed every day. forget breakfast, horrible coffee. broken furniture. They charged to my credit card $ 250 for smoking in the room, and I always went to the sidewalk to smoke. ''had cigarette burns on the bathtub''. 99% of the people in this Motel are African American or Mexican with low education.

I first stayed at this Motel 6 2006 and chose it for its convenient access to a train station to get me in to the city without paying city prices. It left me with no bad impressions so was happy to stay again in 2013. The reception and staff were friendly, helpful and polite and I had no complaints about the room. It was in my view a standard Motel 6, which is clean and adequately presented. There is a lift [elevator], vending machines and coffee in the morning. Car parking was not a problem.

As I have said, access to a train station was the main reason for staying here and Takoma station is around 15 to 20 minutes walk for short fat legs. However, print a map out and follow it. I thought I could rely on my memory from 2006 and went wrong both there and back. That’s just me. It is quite easy.

I have to pass comment on the earlier reports regarding bed bugs, the state of the motel and the shady neighbourhood. Whilst not the best Motel 6 around it is no worse than most cheap independent and other chain motels in this class. I have spent a total of five nights here and have never been bitten or seen so much as a spider. No smells, no stains, no drug users. I have walked the neighbourhood extensively and never felt any insecurity. Whilst the décor may be tired, if it’s décor you want then pay the price for a Hilton or Marriot in the city centre. If you want an adequate motel with good access to the city without paying city prices then stay here.

I’m not trying to enhance their reputation and if I had anything bad to say I would. I’m an Englishman who has travelled through all of the 48 mainland states [Hawaii and Alaska to do] and the number of nights that I have stayed in a Motel 6 runs well in to three figures so I’m pretty confident I know what I’m talking about. Nor have I been bitten by anything in any Motel 6. Well, almost. By some yappy little dog the size of a rat running down the corridor. The owner grabbed it and took off when I suggested I might eat it.

I have an issue with the Trip Advisor ratings with 3 stars [or circles] for average and four for very good. That’s too much of a gap. It needs a good, which is what I give it. Or three and a half. So I have marked it up to four rather than down.

Pictures on their web site make you think the rooms are beautiful. Not. The comforter was so stained, I didn't want it touching me. Halls were filthy and had holes in the walls. The front desk staff was constantly on their cell phones with personal calls, and wouldn't answer the front desk phone. If I kept calling, they would pick up the phone and hang it back up. The directions I was given by the staff were completely wrong. Stains on the walls, matches on the bathroom floor, nice flat screen tv, with bad picture. Not that they could help this, but the halls reeked of pot.

Looked fine in the pictures and from the outside. Even the lobby was fine, the first clue should have been the bullet proof perspex at the counter. We thought that the location ( within 1 mile of the Whitehouse), would have guaranteed a nice neighbourhood, after this experience we checked better for the rest of the trip...

I have always extolled the virtues of Motel 6 as a cheap, clean experience when you are just passing through...this was not up to any sort of standard I've struck before...admittedly all my previous experience was on the West Coast.

The best thing about this place was the ease of cancelling the second nights stay we had booked in for...they seemed to be used to it (and it has to be said the staff were good)
