“A good bargain even for a Motel 6”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

This place is being remolded and looked to be mostly done. I lucked out and got a new room with the flat screen TV which I like because it makes streaming from Nefflix easier when the internet works. This brings me to the one issue I had, internet access and i am not sure this is just a motel6 issue as my cell phone also had lousy access. During my stay there were major wind storms which I think were causing most of the issues.

There are a lot of places and stores nearby but be careful crossing the extremely busy street to get to them.

Service was good, parking was easy and the area seemed pretty quiet at night.

Room Tip: Be careful crossing the highway, walk the extra block to the crosswalk.
