Lmfao ... and back on the hwy...my kids and i wiped everything and sprayed the base boards for bugs...just in case_ And we sprayed everything with lysol Damn near choked us all butt no cigarette smell.

Mostly normal for a Motel 6.

This location is very close to the highway and I was worried about the noise, but it didn't bother us at all once we were inside our room. I felt safe here and didn't worry about my car at all. The AC/Heater worked great and there was even a mini-fridge in the room. There was no charge for the Internet and it was a very strong connection, which is important to me. There was a pool, but it was closed for the season.

Unfortunately, the shower stall was without a bathtub, which is a minor letdown but the toilet would not flush all the way and that was a bigger problem. There were 2 fruit flies in the room and I also smushed a spider on the wall. The bed was rock hard and super uncomfortable to sleep on. =(

The vinyl floors are terribly dirty and getting rid of the carpet was a bad idea. Hair has collected all over the floor, and the maid must have kept the blankets on the floor while making the bed because there were DOZENS of long, dark hairs all over the blankets and one on the sheets. There was also hair on the towels and in the shower. If the maid does not notice she is leaving DOZENS of hairs all over the room, then she needs to consider wearing a hair net to work. No exaggeration, there were about 60 hairs on the bed!!

This particular night, there was a group of kids partying loudly. A call to the front desk brought an employee right away to confront them. It was difficult to tell what room the party was coming from (noise came through our ventilation system) but he made a good effort and I felt my concern was taken very seriously.

Not sure why people are surprised the sheets are thin and the towels suck. Its an 'economy' chain so cheap but clean is what you get for the lower prices. If you want sheets with a high thread count, there is a Hampton Inn nearby, but over 3 times the price of staying here. I stay at Motel 6 a lot, all over the country and this review is based upon comparison to other motels.

Aside from the hair situation and the kids partying, it was functional for cheap and all of the staff I encountered were very helpful and friendly. (If I had met the hairy maid, I would say otherwise)

Was traveling from Kansas to Georgia and needed a place about midnight. Stopped here and was pleasantly surprised. The man at the night desk was very accomadating allowing me the handicap room when requested. Helped us with the perfect place to park are pickup with trailer. The room was updated and clean and the bed was very comfortable. For this price range this motel was a sure winner. I will look for this motel as a recurring stop on my monthly run to KS and back. Great location with eateries nearby and the rate was fantastic. Even the morning coffee was really good.

I always stay at this Motel 6 when I travel through Arkansas. It is near the interstate and there are restaurants and gas stations near by so you do not have to venture too far into town. The rates are fantastic. The rooms are always clean. The WiFi is free. There are refrigerators in the room and a microwave near the vending and ice machines. There is also a place to do laundry on the property. No breakfast in the morning but free coffee is good enough for me! The staff is friendly. Security cameras monitor the property as well for an extra safety precaution. :) I always enjoy my stays!

this is a refreshed motel 6 so the room was recently painted, clean and very nice. it had a fridge and expanded cable tv- about 50 channels. the double bed was fine but sheets and towels were thin. mattress was thin and uncomfortable.
ask for a room on the office side, otherwise the noise from the interstate is unbearable.
desk personnel were always nice. the grounds were quiet- no unsavory people hanging around.
other than the traffic noise, this was a perfectly nice and very cheap place to stay.

This is the nastiest motel we've ever stayed in & we travel a lot! Walls are cracking from moisture, seems like it's from water leaks from upstairs. NO carpet in the room. There are so many flies in this room I have to keep flinging my arms around! Bugs everywhere. This place needs to be turned in to the motel police! It's filthy. Seriously. We were here for the Arkansas Gathering of The Guard. Patriot Guard Riders event. What a sad ending to a wonderful day.

Compared to other Motel 6 locations, this room was small with a very old and saggy bed. It seemed clean enough, just old. The main problem was the persistent chemical odor like bug spray. On the one hand, I appreciated that the room was bug-free, but on the other the odor made it hard to sleep and made the room just feel generally gross. I kept thinking I could still smell it in my clothes the next day. We arrived late and were given the next to last room available. Maybe other rooms are nicer? I've definitely stayed in other Motel 6 (in AR even) that were nicer and cheaper.
