5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2010

You just wouldn't expect a Motel 6 to be such a good experience, but the value is hard to beat!!! I highly recommend this location.

We stayed for two nights - did not think this was the "safest area" to stay, but affordable. Felt safer as we watched Security calmly eject a bunch of rowdy drunks, then escort a happy but clearly drunk person to his room for the night. The officer did not hesitate to help when we asked if he would escort us to our room. Security is around until 4:00am - makes it safer for the weary traveler. The room on the other hand was subpar even for a motel 6. Musty stale smelling room, old shoddy furniture, and the bedspreads make you wonder how often they are really washed. Would recommend party, drunk folks stay away - this is not the place to party, drink, and do drugs (GOOD!!!). Security is great!!! Not sure I would really recommend for business travelers unless you are just passing thorugh and on a tight budget - cleaner motels exist.

Busy little hotel - lots of young adults and truckers. Not too noisy and decent room. Laundry room was close and in working order. We just stopped for the night along the way (unplanned) which was decent enough but we probably would not seek the hotel out if that was our destination. Staff was courteous.

We felt very unsafe in this hotel. Added to that the room absolutely stunk, it was awful.

We have stayed at other Motel 6 places and found them to be good, but this was unbelievable. We hardly slept, and left very early the following day.
