“Very comfortable room!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Our room was clean, no bugs, no bad smells, the Wifi worked great, the staff were wonderful.

I wish the room had a coffee maker but, when we travel we keep one in our trunk for the Hotels that don't provide one so it's really no big deal.

Firm pillows and a good bed made for a decent nights sleep which we really really needed.

We didn't have a reservation, we had good experiences at Motel 6 in other areas so we trusted Motel 6 and the price is always inexpensive as well, so we took a chance and we are glad we did.

Room Tip: You don't have to worry about bugs, bad smells or dirty rooms here.

The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were very flat. I woke up with a sore neck. The cleaning ladies are very loud and in considerate of other people that might be sleeping. I will never stay here again!

It's a Motel for sure...stale scent...bed was right next to heater and bed dressing had cigarette holes and stains. Good for one night stays in between long trips....good right across the street and pet friendly...and the tub is pretty clean.

This is a basic Motel 6 that is clean inside and out. However, she's showing her age and needs updating. The desk clerk was very helpful, friendly, and, accommodating when we needed special room location consideration. There's plenty of restaurants in walking distance. And, as always, they are pet friendly.

Room Tip: Truck parking is near the rooms in the back

Arriving around 4-30, the receptionist was unaware that AARP members get free Internet access, after a discussion, that was sorted out ! The outside areas of the motel were very well presented.
Room 154 was just very ordinary clean and very acceptable. The motel was easily accessible and in a good location. Noise in the morning from our fellow guests as they run their vehicle engines for long periods and shout at each other - I have never understood why they do it ? - obviously this is not the motel's fault.

If you’re planning to get a room at a Motel 6 just for sleeping purposes, then I can honestly say it’s worth checking out. You get what you pay for but it’s really not that bad. It is conveniently located close to the highway and within walking distance of an Ihop, Olive Garden, Taco Bell and Wendy´s among others..The overall service however was disastrous. The man at the check-in counter was disrespectful and rude. Besides that, it was tolerable.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the ground floor. It´s always a hassle to carry your heavy bags up the stairs...

We needed an inexpensive pet-friendly room for the night and usually have great success with Motel 6. However, this must be one of their oldest hotels (?) The room smelled very stale and funky but I guess my nose got used to it. They put two double beds in the room we were in...one was pushed up against the front wall and air conditioner, the other against the far wall, with about 18" in between. The A/C on low blew in my face when I was on the far bed, so I had to pile the bedspreads and extra pillows (I brought my own) up in front of it so I didn't have air blowing in my face. No microwave or frig. Wifi wouldn't give me access. Fortunately the bed was comfortable and the shower had incredible water pressure.
