“Disappointing!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2007

First, I like Motel 6. Usually a clean simple room for a good night's stay for a good price. This one was a real disappointment! Check in was through a bullet proof window (at 5:30 P.M.) The credit card was double billed then a credit was issued but they wouldn't give me a copy of the original. The room was dirty with the remnants of where someone had been sick in the restroom. We had it cleaned but the rest of the room was in need of service. The shelves were dusty, walls chipped and the occaisional bug. They offered to move us but my wife pointed out that at least we knew the bathroom in this unit had been cleaned. I will not be back.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2007

My family and I stayed overnight at this Motel 6 recently. It's located at a fairly busy exit, so it's a little noisy, but not too bad. We stayed in a first-floor room (had reservation). The front desk clerk (actually a housekeeper filling in) was polite, courteous, and responsive to room requests and my questions about the local area.

Like other Motel 6s, the room itself was quite small, but functional. Our room had a shower stall only. I wish the room had separate chairs and a table. The double beds seemed comfortable for my taste. The room was clean.

I might stay there again, but only for overnight.

  • Liked — Shower had excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water
  • Disliked — Condoms in the lobby vending machine
  • Tips/Secrets — Have your driver's license and vehicle tag ready during check-in

This was the worst place for our family to stay. We were only there one night and that was way to many. We arrived early and checked in, no problem. We got to our room on the second floor close to the elevator and the stairs, fine. Once in the room though there were crumbs all over the floor and the table, and the restroom light didn't want to come on either. We called about the light and they said they had been having problems with it to just leave the switch on and it would eventually come on. We left to do what we had to do and didn't come back until about 10:30 pm. When we got there their were men walking around the parking lot. We went to our room and started to get comfortable to finally rest after our trip. There were lots of noises coming from outside talking loud and laughing-most likely people coming off the elevator or stairs. We started to put our children to bed and turned on the cartoons for them. Suddenly my husband and I heard strange noises. We put the volume down and then quickly put it back up a little loud. There were noises coming from the room next to us that we did NOT want our children to hear. We fell asleep with the t.v. on just to be safe. We left early in the morning like six or so and it was finally nice and quiet. Needless to say we will not stay there again, next time we go on a trip we will check them out here first.
