“Needs improvements”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

Check in was fast and courteous. Night time security . But the room needs help. Prominent rust in the tub. Carpets need a good deep cleaning. Bed was ok. The bathroom towels were stained.
Good price and no frills....it's a motel 6 frills are not to be expected.
I don't think I will return

Filthy does not convey the level of scum, rot, stains, ungodly smells from this place----inside and out. Minimal attention done to property for photo purpose only. Trash everywhere. Rancid smells and stains all over cement walks and staircases to rooms. They need to power wash all areas outside immediate room entrances and staircases. Really, you will never find a dirtier place. The "last" and "only" room available claim is to force you to accept the lack of clean sheets, counters, appliances. DO-----look at the walls, headboard, bedding, furniture, and appliances as they have all kinds of suspicious stains and often do not work properly. This place caters to sketchy, undesirable guests and their associates. Be careful --- this is not a safe or maintained property. This motel 6 chain of hotels are always less than quality, but this place takes the motel 6 people and their properties to a new low. Look elsewhere. Safety is important and so is sanitation. This is substandard housing and a sham. To take peoples money is for this place is unethical and negligent.

There is not enough space here to describe the horribleness of this property, which looks fine from the outside. (Well, not really. the corridor walkways would need a blow torch as to get rid of the accumulated scum.) Generally -- everything is old, worn out, dirty, broken or malfunctioing here. I will be somewhat kind, and save the specifics for the letters I am writing to the managers and corporate HQ's. Let's just say the room interiors have never been "refreshed" for the history of the property, which has to be at least 10 years -- or as long as the Studio 6 concept has existed. The final, crowing insult -- as I was leaving, I used the lavatory. The toilet clogged. How appropriate, how symbolic of this visit.

Room Tip: If my room was an indicator, there aren't any good rooms here.

I Have stayed here before. Good value. Nice location. Only one maid service for weekly. Petitioner friendly but i have not been charged $50 pet fee at any Motel 6 before as they advertise pet friendly. Nice pet area. Quiet nobody bothered me. Close to Arizona Mills and some conveniences. Easy access from highway. Staff has been courteous. This motel has long term guests living there. They need to update and deep clean their rooms are dirty in need of cleaning. More regular maid service would be helpful. Overall a good value.

I relocated to Tempe, AZ in August of this year from Wisconsin. I called myself doing alot of research on this extended stay hotel and saw a couple of bad reviews, but did not listen..after all the pictures makes it look amazing. Please be advised to listen to not only my review but the others that was placed this year alone. Let's start with the staff/management..horrible to say it nicely.

The Clientele, I had absolutely no idea what me and my seven year-old daughter was in for. How about several nights of Tempe police visits due to all the fights, drugs and prostitution. I feel like an idiot as I really did not pay attention. This is not a family place, please do not go there if you have a family. Trust me when I tell you get what you pay for at this place. The hotel has been in the news unnamed for all of the illegal activity taking place. I left immediately and was refunded my money so I am not writing this review out of malice. I really want other unsuspecting people to know that cheap in this case is not going to be the good way to go. Aside from the horrible air conditioners, dirty carpet, and several bed bug incidents its not worth it! Pay the extra money for the safety and better staff. I also have written and spoken to corporate, Accor, who operates this place and they are well aware of the issues.

Studio 6 needs a total make-over from the staff except shaunte! to the filthy rooms. The assistant manager lives on the property with kids, this amazes me! I am very happy that I left and just want others especially those traveling from other states to know.

My experience at Studio 6 Tempe is consistent with most all of my other Motel 6 & Studio 6 experiences, bad.


The rooms are small and cramped. Carpets are filthy and leave your feet black. AC units when used to heat set off smoke alarms since they are never cleaned and emit stinky greasy food stench.

Houskeepers and repair staff do odd things like kick on the kitchen countertop in opposing rooms sending the cooktop flying and of course making a lot of noise.

Other guests and the parking are loud, horns going off all the time, slamming of doors, and so on.

Police like to visit now and again to arrest hookers.

Avoid this one.

At first glance upon arrival into the parking lot and lobby, the place looks well kept and clean. Unfortunately, that's the best you get here. The entire property needs to be updated and refreshed from the rooms, furniture and exteriors of the buildings. Its understandable that hotels/motels go through a lot everyday but at a certain point its time for a complete overhaul. The furniture and appliances have been used and abused and need to be replaced. Blood on mattresses and carpet is not OK. The walls are dirty, baseboards & molding are broken and missing pieces, the doors have significant gaps so that they don't close and leave gaping openings to the outside allowing bugs (scorpions in AZ) to crawl in if they desire. The bathroom in this particular room had rust around the drains, the toilet needed to be replaced, the towel bar was broken and the shower dripped nonstop. The refrigerator froze up constantly and dripped making noises all night which interfered with sleep, one stove burner did not work and the coffee pot and toaster were filthy (did not use). The towels are old and scratchy. The bed linens had holes and stains. Carpet...was so dirty I felt the need to wear shoes the whole time. The swimming pool is super small, equivalent to a large jacuzzi, has no lounge chairs and the walkway around the pool is very narrow. The laundry facility needs updating.

The most undesirable thing about this motel is the clientele. The rates are low so its filled with long term residents who hang outside at night drinking there beer and scoping out the women. There is no way to say this tactfully....it's infested with drug users and prostitutes and the cops were there several nights a week chasing them off and advised this guest to find a different locale if I was staying long term. The management does nothing to improve this situation. They do provide a security guard 2 nights a week unfortunately, this man had physical limitations which would allow him to be easily overtaken. I guess his mere presence was intended to be a deterrent.

I have stayed at this property several times so I have a good reference over an extended period of time to use for this review. I will not be staying again.

Room Tip: Building #1 near the front away from long term residents.
