We stopped at this hotel after 12 hours on the highway. It was simply at the right place at the right time as it was getting dark and we were beat. We needed someplace that accepted pets (small dog) and Motel 6 almost always does. Having no desire to drive any further and try our luck with sparse exits and numerous deer, we gave it a shot.
The woman at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. From the looks of the lot, the place appeared to be less that 1/3 full, if that. So it was fairly quiet. Most of the patrons appeared to also be travelers and truckers stopping off for one evening on their way to someplace else.
The room was big and appeared clean, but had a very musty smell to it (which unfortunately is common in pet-friendly hotels). One pillowcase was lightly stained and one fitted sheet had an old cigarette burn in it (although it was a non-smoking room). They had obviously been washed and smelled clean, but had been damaged and still used. The bathroom was clean, spacious, had good water pressure and no mold. All the towels were clean.
There was coffee in the morning but no breakfast (the usual for Motel 6). There was an Arby's next door and a few other restaurants & gas stations nearby. Typical highway exit.
It was a little pricey for what we received, although we were walk-ins w/ no coupons or reservations and were not about to drive on any further that night. It wasn't terrible and had I paid $10-$15 less it would be a solid 3 on my rating scale. As is, i'd rate it a 2.5 if I could.
===== ===== =====
RATING SCALE: My ratings are generally based on value vs money. Thus, sometimes a simple hotel will receive a 4 or 5, while a fancy hotel can rank a 1 or 2 if I don't feel it was worth the cost.
Also, a hotel can do everything right and still only rank as a 4, unless there's something really exceptional about it.
5 = Hotel gets everything right, and goes above and beyond.
4 = Hotel gets everything right.
3 = Hotel is acceptable value for money spent.
2 = Hotel isn't worth the money spent.
1 = Hotel should pay ME to stay there.
