“In need of a major upgrade”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

While this motel is in a convenient location to the Punta Gorda airport, that's about all it had going for it. After being given the key, we opened the door to a smell I can't describe. It was a nonsmoking room and the smell wasn't of smoke. We walked to Walmart and purchased Febreeze (which we left for the cleaning staff). There is a pool, but it's behind the building and you'd never find it unless you went looking. There is a second building behind the original motel where a raucous party was taking place at 3:00am. The room is old, outdated and desperately needs an update. If you're looking for a cheap place near the airport with friendly staff, it's OK. If traveling with your family, look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Stay as close to the office as possible!

we apologize if there was something wrong with your room, if you would have informed the front desk they would have been glad to change your room, we are in the middle of a remodel, not sure what you mean by second building behind the original motel.

Stayed at the Motel6 in Punta Gorda, FL for 1 nite in Dec. 2010. I was traveling alone and just needed a break from my long drive. This Motel is a great value for the money.
Paid arounf $40 / nite total. Rooms are small and only have the very basic essentials needed for any overnite stay. Plan on bring shampoo, hairdryer, conditioner, etc. , if you are planning to stay here. In short, the room was clean, and as long as you can tolerate the sound of the a/c-heater unit, the place was quiet. Also, the carpet was little old and worn.

What was good about the Motel:
Location - right off of I-75. easy off and easy on highway.
Price- around $40 total with taxes and fees.
Food - as long as you like fast food...McD's, BK, Arbys, Wendys, etc. All walking distance.
Pet Friendly- although I did not have a pet with me, I saw others that did here.
Room was clean - TV worked. Ice machine worked.
Staff was courteous and check in/out was a breeze.

What could be improved:
Rooms could have more essentials in them..ie shampoo. Small stores are nearby.
Noise from the nearby Truck stop. 24 hours a day, I am assuming.

Overall, a decent place for the money...Would recommend to any budget minded traveler.

Where do I start. I am cheap and have stayed in some questionable places to save a buck but this place takes the prize. I will say that I have found some great Motel 6 locations that rival major expensive hotels. This is just a terrible place. There where stains everywhere, dirt everywhere including between the "clean" sheets, and the smell was horrible. It was so bad we took pictures and plan to get ahold of Motel 6 and complain. DO NOT stay here.

Purpose of trip was to visit family. We reserved a 2-night stay a month in advance under the best rate available. On arrival, we were offered the trucker's rate which was a considerable savings. This rate is not advertised online and is a little known perk the Punta Gorda Motel 6 affords truckers. While not fancy, our room was ready, very clean with very comfortable king size bed. Also, this motel is very pet friendly, no extra charge for pets, plenty of room to walk dogs. Needless to say, we will continue booking with Motel 6 Punta Gorda for return trips.

The service desk person gaves a good rate. That is really the only thing this motel had going for it. The beds seemed clean. The floors and bathroom were not clean. There were undefinable things on the floor. Our friends in the next room had old meat on the floor in their bathroom, and food particles and other things on the floor in the bedroom. I was afraid to walk without shoes. I definitely did NOT take a shower. Yuck!
