“Great - for the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Overall not bad for the price. Good location, good beds. 2 Queen beds

Cleanliness - OK, there was a towel left on the floor of the bathroom behind the door. They came quickly to get it and gave us extra towels on request.
Staff - Good, frienldy enough
Rooms - good size, We had 2 queen beds and room enough for a family of 4. The shower/tub combo worked well for us. The tv was an old tube type about 27 inches. There was good selection of channels. There was a small round table with 2 chairs.
Price - Excellent price for the area. Less than half of any other local hotel.
Location - There is a circle k, Dennys, cracker barrel, Whataburger, Rudy's BBQ within walking distance. A very nice mall is about 5 minutes away and a very nice casino also about 5 minutes by car.

Room Tip: Bottom floor so you can park close to your room

This motel was built within the last 5 years according to the Motel 6 website. They've let the inside go! The sheets were coming off the bed because the maid wasn't trained in motel bed making. (I was as I did this as a job once.) First of all the sheets were dingy and old, not big enough to even tuck in all around the mattress (no such thing as fitted sheets here). The blanket was so worn you could see through it in spots and the edges were ripped! The top mattress wasn't even aligned with the boxsprings.
The dresser drawer wouldn't close all the way because the molding was loose and blocked it. Apparently the maid didn't care enough to make sure it even looked good. Old 19" TV.
The shower had the curved curtain rod that was sagging down so as you took a shower the curtain slid away from the walls and water got all over the floor. The shower head had you running around trying to get wet.
The smoke detector was hanging by the wires, not even attached to the wall. Didn't check if it worked.
Used the laundry room. The washers are older than the motel!
The place looks nice and so does the pool. Has a quality look from the outside and let me tell you looks are very deceiving. This place needs so MAJOR TLC. The paint looked fresh and the carpet looked fairly new in the room, but the furniture and bedding was horrible. They really need refurbish the outdated damaged furniture. The bathroom sink was all cracked in the bowl.
This Motel 6 is surrounded by higher class motels that charge quite a bit more for rooms. If they put a little money into it and made it more livable, they would compete with those hotels, because they would get better reviews!
Desk clerk was very nice, but someone doesn't want to take the time or money to keep the place up. Won't be staying here again.
The sad thing is, they do have truck (big rig) parking, but my truck is nicer inside than this room was! 2 stars is the best I can do, because the clerk was nice/helpful and it doesn't look dilapidated on the outside.

Where do I begin to explain the absolute worst place I have ever stayed? While in Chandler for work I booked at this "motel?" I arrived at around 2am and was ignored by man at desk for 20 minutes while he finished talking to his friend, got the key to room and went upstairs opened the door and was surprised at the odor, the light did not work in the restroom, refrigerator was unplugged and defrosted all over the floor, baseboard is coming away from the wall, there was pubic hair in the soap tray of the shower, heard the unnecessary and obvious noises of the couple next door that were beyond over the top kinky, finally forced myself to lay down and fell asleep to awake with the unmistakable rash caused from bed bugs!!!! The worst way to waist your money and be in total uncomfortableness is at this location. Do yourself or your loved ones a favor, go elsewhere or stay in your ride.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere

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!!
