We came into town for a football game, and struggled at first to find a hotel room. Most hotels had a 2 night minimum during football season, and we did not want to stay 2 nights. Our only other one-night option would have cost us $250+, so we decided to go with Motel 6.
Check in was quick, but when we got to our room, there was standing water on the bathroom floor and the carpet around the bathroom was wet too (which may explain the musty smell). While the water in the shower had been run, (as demonstrated by the shower head that wouldn't stop dripping despite our best efforts), the shower itself was disgusting and had mold growing on it and on the drain. We had one towel for the four people staying in the room. When we called the front desk to ask about someone cleaning up the bathroom, they were very little help. So we asked for extra towels (mostly to clean up the bathroom floor since no one was planning on getting in the gross shower). The guy at the front desk stated that housekeeping had left for the day and that he was the only one working, but that he would try to "dig up" some towels for us, which he eventually did. The overall cleanliness of the room was less than satisfactory.
This is the first time I have ever stayed in a hotel room that didn't have a clock, so if you have to stay there, bring your own.
The beds were rather firm--nothing fancy, but ok. The blankets were less than substantial and appeared to be very old. I was very happy I'd brought my own pillow.
I've stayed at a variety of hotels and have gotten much nicer/ cleaner accommodations for $86. While I only saw our room (#505) and cannot speak to the other rooms, I would not stay there again.
