“Clean Room, Great Location, But...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

I've been traveling with my two cats and have been staying in Motel 6's going south and, now, returning north to home. I stayed at the Motel 6 in Grants Pass, OR on my third of four nights on the road. The location was great. The room was definitely clean. The front desk staff was friendly and check-in was quick and efficient. HOWEVER...My room was located on the back side of the property which is, apparently, the local meeting place to get into a fight. Late in the afternoon, there was yelling, foul language and threats that -- quite frankly -- made me uneasy. I called the front desk and was told someone would investigating. They may have investigated, but the problem reoccured. My room (#141) was also located next to/behind the motel's laundry facilities. Between slamming doors, yelling people from the room(s) upstairs as well as the parking lot, kids squealing and running around overhead...Holy smokes. This place looks good, but I did not feel safe. Nor did I get a good night's sleep. I would suggest that, if you stay, ask for a room nearer the office and away from the laundry room.

Room Tip: Specify a room in a quiet part of the property.

Grants Pass is a convenient stopoff for me on travel up and down the west coast -- I know the town fairly well and there are plenty of services available. I generally stay at more upscale hotels in town, but on this trip I just needed a good night's sleep and parking right in front of the room so I could wheel my expensive bicycle inside the room for the night.

As usual, this fit the bill, with no unpleasant surprises. The one downside to my stay was the occupants of the room next to mine were heavy smokers who stood outside my room to smoke and the smell came into my room several times during the night and woke me up. Not the fault of Motel 6, but the thoughtless senior couple occupying the adjacent room.

This is a regular stop on my I-5 route between California and Oregon. Not only are the rooms clean and comfortable albeit, bare bones.-- And additional convenience is the is large selection of restaurants within walking distance -- so you can choose your own breakfast -- at your own price. With Motel 6, I never have to worry about surprise (and some surcharges) if I'm traveling with my large (but well-behaved!) dog.

This particular store even offers non-coffee drinkers a carafe of hot water for tea, chocolate or whatever you've got in your suitcase.



Vive la Motel 6.

Room Tip: Only bathtubs in this store are in the handicapped rooms. As always, I ask for a room with adjacent...

Motel 6 are basic motels with all the main essentials you need for an overnight or short stay. They offer basic facilities. My room at the Motel 6 in Grants Pass was clean and comfortable and had more TV channels than many premium hotels I have stayed in.

The receptionist gave a warm smile and appeared to be genuinely welcoming. After a long day on the road it felt like coming home to an old friend. Not being American, the receptionist went that extra mile to ensure we both understood one another. Although I am English, understanding American English and visa versa can sometimes be difficult.

There are a number of eateries close by and a large Safeway supermarket on the way to downtown.

Room Tip: Visit the Safeway supermarket on the way to Downtown. I have never met such an enthusiastic and frie...

If you're looking for a CLEAN, SAFE, AFFORDABLE place to stay, THIS IS IT!!! The staff is SUPER excellent and when I stayed there it was quiet and relaxing. I was also in the middle of a move, so my car was packed with stuff and neither the permanent residents, or anyone else messed with it. If anything, the people that live in the hotel look out for one another. It's like a nice little community for a night :) Just talk to people, be nice, and they will return the favor. And yes, the internet costs a whole $3, it's also fast, and secure, so to all those people that gave this place a bad review over pompous expectations: stop being such a snob.

Room Tip: Room 126 was really nice, but like I said, always bring your own pillow, it makes it feel like home...

Mediocre is the theme for any Motel 6, but it's hard to beat the price. This one has a big banner saying "Wi-Fi", but note that it does not say "FREE Wi-Fi". Oh Well. Even McDonald's has free Wi-Fi. Too bad this motel "just doesn't get it".

Thought i would try to save some money. Bad idea!! Weed smell and dog poop smell passed thru the shared AC vents. Pets are allowed but someone let them poop in a room. Also there was a party like atmospere (very noisy past 10 pm) from the people that pay by the week.
