“Worst Motel Stay.. ever!”
I'm pretty familiar with Portland, and travel here a few times a year. I've driven by the Motel 6 a lot, and from the exterior, it doesn't look bad at all. With it being only $65, I figured we would try this out for a night, and what a mistake. The only mistake that was worse then staying here, was not reading reviews beforehand. Check in went really well, and the front desk clerk (Andrew I believe) was really friendly! When we go to the room, I was shocked. The carpet was damp, air conditioner had a piece of molding on the floor and the beds.. lets talk about the beds for a minute. There were visible stains all over the mattresses. I honestly might not have even noticed this had it not been for the fact that the sheets on the bed were so thin that you could see the mattress below. This entire property was dirty and looked like it hadn't been properly cleaned in years. I've stayed in some trashy hotels, as I like bargain shopping, but this was unbelievable.
The guy at the front desk, as I said, was really friendly, and gave us a code for the internet (usually $3). It is a good thing he gave us a free one, because the service was in and out during our entire stay. We stayed one night, and I can guarantee will not be back. I've stayed at the Motel 6 in Bangor, ME on a few occasions and can say that its like these properties have different owners. The motel there is clean and inviting. This place had me praying that I didn't take any bugs home.
One last thing - on the upside.. there was a beer opener in the bathroom. Not something I usually look for, but if I was staying the night here, I sure wasn't going to do it sober!
Don't stay here! If you do, avoid room 307, as the mattresses may have blood, urine or god know...
