We planned our trip from NJ to DC during summer '11, but did not stay in Motel 6 before, so just wanted to give it a try. This place was really the worst and terrible place on earth! Had we not have kids with us, we would have better slept in our car!
The size of the room was very small as compared to what you get at another places for the same price. The room stinked like a mold or something. There were cigarette holes all over the comforters (although we reserved the non-smoking room)! The worst thing was, there were those HUGE monsters called bedbugs. It seemed to us that they had been fed regularly - they were giant. We could feel them crawling under the bedsheets. However, when we tried to call the front desk - gosh! the phone was dead. We were so tired that we just went to sleep.
Keep that aside, here was the reaction of the front desk lady when we complained about it in the morning. She asked us to show the "typical" bed-bug bites, as if she had been seeing it every day! My sister and my nephew were bitten on their legs and cheek, however the bite marks subsided till morning. There were still pinkish marks that we showed to her and she said, "These are not bedbug bites, it's just your nail marks!!" What the hell? Then she asked us to go to the doctor and get diagnosed and she would refund our money! Who the hell has that much time? We just wanted to get switched to a different room so that we could sleep quitely. She also asked us to catch one bug and bring it to her so that she could trust us! lol! She argued for about 1/2 hour, then agreed to switch to a different room.
Another thing: it was the double bed room and there were only 2 small towels! There wasn't enough coffee in the front lobby and whatever was there, it was filthy! Unwashed utensils, spilled coffee and other things. The attitude of the employees was bad.
I would recommend other better places you can get for the same price.
DO NOT ever try to stay in Motel 6...it's just a wastage of money.. You can try better places li...
