This was the most disgusting place we have ever stayed at. The bed had not been made properly and the sheets did not even fit the mattress. My husband went to the desk to get fresh sheets, but the man said he did not have any and told him to go to another room and get the sheets from that bed. These were only a little better, but seemed cleaner, but also did not fit properly. The bathroom was was horrible looking around the commode, not cleaned properly. The TV was an old CRT type, and the picture broke up continually until my husband tightened up the cables.
There were a lot of rough-looking characters hanging around the parking lot. Fortunately my husband is 6-2 and 200 lbs so not likely to be bothered, but we did take all our belongings into the room which we usually don't do when traveling and only staying one night. We also put the chair up against the door knob!
My husband commented that he was surprised that they didn't rent out the rooms by the hour, they were so bad, so the flop house comment in the other review is spot on. Also it is right on I-20 and very noisy all night long, so even if the rooms were OK, it would not be a good place to stay anyway.
I could barely sleep and we left very early the next morning. We didn't even bother with a shower. All they had was coffee and it was also awful, even though the web site said they offered a breakfast. We stopped at the McDonalds a few blocks into town.
I agree with the other reviewers regarding the people staying at the hotel. The problem is that there are a lot of oil-field workers who need accommodation because of the boom in the shale gas drilling and fracking. It is a similar problem in many such places in Texas and had driven up demand and prices. The Holiday Inn was at $180/night and a new LaQuinta was $210. This is crazy in a place like Big Spring, Texas, but they can get it if the oil companies are paying.
The people who can't afford that have to accept the squalor at the cheaper place.
The old adage applies "you get what you pay for."
I am amazed that Motel 6 is allowing this to go on in one of their properties, and that the local inspectors have not closed it down.
Do not stay here under any circumstances, especially females alone or with children.
Maybe OK for the roughneck types, one or two tough guys who don't care about the conditions.
