This motel was a LaQuinta until July 2013 when it became a Motel 6. From the outside it has a very dumpy appearance. But the room on the inside was very nice. Large, with two beds and sharp flat screen TV (after I adjusted the wires to make it work) with 26 channels. The bathroom was small with a very small vanity; it would be tight for two people. There was a table with two mismatched chairs. The lighting is excellent. Black out drapes were very effective, much better than high end hotels. The motel still retains the LaQuinta beds and bedding which were very nice. AC worked great, which was a relief since it was 105 when I was there. There was a crystal clear large pool, unfortunately there were a lot of smokers around it. Michaels, a sports bar next door, had moderately priced meals, otherwise you have to drive to get food. During the work week, the area is very congested, but you do have easy access to highway. I got my room for $36 a night, which was a bargain. The only real negative is the exterior of the hotel is falling apart. Bolts are missing to connect stairwells to the second floor, beams are rotting and it looks run down. The interiors are fine, but the exterior needs a lot of work. Rooms do not contain a fridge, microwave or safe, and breakfast is no longer served. It’s a Motel 6 after all! It is a 10 minute walk to the Farmers Branch DART station, and then just 30 minutes and you are downtown. (Day pass is $5).
If you are looking for a cheap motel with easy access to downtown, this is the place. The rooms are nicer than your average Motel 6 and the rates are excellent. I would stay here again.
