“"Super" Bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Never again! This hotel is run down! Parked and went through door needing key but opened easily without. Passed windows open in halls without screens. Got to our room and noticed no pillowcases (they did bring them very quickly) some were yellow. Masking tape along ceiling hanging there, holes cut in ceiling tiles for sprinkler heads, our window was foggy and dirty. Speaking of dirty, the bathroom was disgusting. Hair hanging from shower head, thick dust on shelving, empty toothpick wrapper behind toilet, behind the door I'm pretty sure hasn't been cleaned for quite sometime and the worst was a smear off blood on the back of the door. Most of us opted to skip showering there. No alarm clock, no tissues, and about 10 channels that came in clear,no breakfast. Our stay was definitely NOT super.

Room Tip: Just don't

Overpriced and dirty...no room amenities. Have to go to lobby just for coffee. No breakfast. Only thing close for food is a rundown BK. Basic cable...all this for the low price of $90...never again!!!!!

We stayed in back to back Motel 6s on our trip...both same price $56. The first one was beyone awful, and this Motel 6 was a great bang for the buck. The room was clean, had 2 queen beds, free wi-fi and a mini-frig. So, highly recommend you read reviews for the specific Motel 6 you want to stay in because they are not consistent from one to the next. The draw for us was close to the highway and dog friendly...and this Motel 6 exceeded our expectations!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

Over the years of traveling for my job I have stayed at many places that were well worth the money and some that should have been for free because of the conditions of the hotel and staff. I can truly say that for the last three years this has become my place to stay when I'm in the area. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Many of them remember me over the years and even ask me how I've been. It's great to have a place to stay at while on the road working and they treat you like family. Cleanliness of the hotel is on par with the better hotels I stay in. Location is perfectly off the turnpike and is only a few mins away from campus where I work. If your in the area for any amount of time and on a budget, this is a great place for the price.

I often stay at Motel 6's because they are dog friendly and they are all pretty much the same. However, this one was much better than average and I was pleasantly surprised! It was clean, quiet (even given it's location next to the highway), and had amenities that most Motel 6's don't have. Great value for the money. The best thing about this stay was a trucker hauling a load of roses handed out a dozen roses to any ladies staying the hotel who wanted some. Very nice surprise!

My overall rating of Very Good is based on the price and what you expect out of a budget hotel. The fee was moderate and reasonable and the rooms were recently renovated. They were able to accommodate us for an extra night (mid-week) which was helpful. The front desk staff were nice and helpful as well.

My family was on our way to Washington DC. We stop because it got really late and we had our 2year old daughter with was. We check in slept in our clothes the room was that dirty. Couldn't sleep because we were being bitten by ants in the beds. I recommend no one stay here at motel 6 in Lawrence Kansas.
