“On the road with Ethan, the dog”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2011

Beautiful place on the outside. Barely average on the inside. The bathroom had hair on the floor in the corners, the caulking was moldy and filthy, the paint peeling behind the toilet.
The ac looked like it had been kicked around, but it did cool the room.
Ceiling looked like the sheet rock was coming loose.

Check in staff was nice.

Great area to walk the dog. PLEASE, pick up your poop. The value of getting a place to stay with a pet, no charge, saves so much money.

NOthing spectacular - just an average Motel ^. The carpets int he rooms were in need of a good steam cleaning as were the seat cushions. Th edoor to the bathroom was also a bit hard to close and needed some repair. But a good enough place to catch some shut-eye.

Stayed at the Motel 6 Chandler enroute for the 'USA Road Trip 2008' that I was doing with friends which started at Las Vegas and was to finish back in Las Vegas two weeks later.

The Motel 6 Chandler is a modern hotel and looks quite newly built. It's easily accessed off the Highway from Phoenix and close to Bars and Restaurants within Chandler.

Decided to stay in Chandler due to its close location to 'Rawhide' which we were visiting that night, which I would definately recommend if you are ever in the area - try the Rawhide Rattler!!

Back to the hotel review, the rooms were spacious, clean with comfortable beds. The only small complaints I would have about the hotel was the wardrobe pole falling off the wall as I hung my clothes up - not my fault [honesly!!]. Also, whilst it was nice having a fridge in the room, it was quite noisy and I ended up turning it off during the night so I could get some sleep.

The hotel also had what looked like a nice clean pool, although I didn't use this facility during my stay.

Finally, whilst I can't give the hotel any more points, its close location to a certain 'Hooters Bar' was definately a bonus for a party of four guys. We made full use of this establishment during our brief stay and thouroughly enjoyed the hospitality of the Hooter Girls, especially Krystal Marie!!

Overall, this was a basic but modern and clean hotel which acted as a great stopover hotel for a one night stay in Arizona.

  • Liked — Hooters being only 500 yards away from the hotel!!
  • Disliked — The 500 yard walk to Hooters!!

Stayed at this Disgusting hotel on our trip through US in Jan/Feb.

The rooms stunk of cheap deodorant, the beds were dirty, including hairs on the linen, the shower curtain could have been used for medical experiments with what was growing on it, and the toilet was filthy....AND NO HAIR DRYER, an unbearable sin according to my wife!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had to pay a premium rate for this Hotel as it was Superbowl weekend whilst we were in town.
I don't mind having to pay extra during peak periods, however the nearly $200 for this dump of a room for 1 night was just outrageous.

Would have gone elsewhere if I could have found something.

Left a very bad impression of Motel6, although I doubt they are all this bad.

Room strongly smelled of lemon cleaner. We tried to switch rooms but all had same problem.
Please note that "free wifi" only means in the office, not available in the rooms!
Also -- their website says it is a new location, but it is NOT a new motel; it was an old motel that is newly acquired by Motel 6.

Stayed March 2007

If you don't mind being the main course to bed-bugs...it's great for a budget. Enough said.

The room was a bit tired -- stains on the chairs, older fixtures in the bathroom, etc. But it was reasonably comfortable and the TV had a lot of channels (though the remote was anchored to one end table). The main problems were 1) very thin walls. You could make out the words when the TV was on next door, and 2) too much air freshener, and a sort of musty odor in the bathroom. We paid in the mid-$60s and you can find better deals than this place -- including the Red Roof Inn down the street.

The towels had been through the mill, and they didn't give us enough. The front desk staff was helpful enough, though a bit confused -- we were at first checked into a room that was already occupied!

The continental breakfast was awful -- old donuts wrapped in plastic and a pitcher of cheap, bulk orange juice. They probably offer this repast to satisfy some AAA diamond requirements.

We had been planning to stay two nights but cut it short after one.
