I stayed at this Motel 6 around October 2012, when PCSing from Fort Sill to Fort Bliss. My first piece of advice is to book a hotel room very early when traveling through West Texas. We had looked at the Best Western Swiss Clock Inn prior to Labor Day with the intent of staying there, however after Labor Day when we went to book, it was already sold out. Prices anywhere from around Midland, TX and out to El Paso along I-20 and I-10 are likely to be extremely expensive if you don't book clear in advance. For example, a Comfort Suites in Midland wanted close to $400 for a room in their hotel. My wife and I paid $80 for a night at this Motel 6. Prices will be high for what you get due to the oil industry booking lots of rooms for workers, as other reviewers have stated.
As for the Motel 6 itself, The room is quite small, with enough room for the bed and a couple of night stands on either side, and a desk type unit on the opposite wall with a small tv. They did have wifi for free which was a nice addition. The clerk who checked us in seemed very indifferent. Because the Motel 6 is rented out by oil companies, there was a large amount of oil workers sitting out on the sidewalk outside the rooms, some grilling out, some drinking. They are fairly friendly and shouldn't be of much concern. Since we had lots of stuff packed into our vehicles, my only concern was if one of them saw something they liked while drunk, and would've smashed a window for it, which did not happen. Unfortunately, they have a tendency to throw their empty beer bottles over the chain link fence, so the adjacent lot is littered with all kinds of beer bottles and cigarette butts.
For some reason, they placed us in a handicap accessible room which made the bathroom a bit different. The bathroom seemed to be more sizable and had a different shower with a seat that flipped down in it. The sink was slightly difficult to use for a tall man to shave at because of its lower height to accommodate a wheel chair. The bed was comfortable enough, more on the firm side than the soft. The other reviewers stating that there were old army blankets on the beds are making stuff up. It was a standard Motel 6 comforter and sheets. I would know, I've used my fair share of army blankets enough to know what they actually are. My only complaints with the room were that I could hear the tv from the adjacent room (shared door) and from drunk oil workers who had gotten off their shifts outside when I was trying to sleep. Also, the deadbolt to the room didn't work, which I alerted the staff in the morning to.
The morning staff were much more polite and attentive than the staff member who checked us in. Walking our dog was slightly difficult, because there is a lot of parking lot but very little dirt to walk a dog on. Overall, it is a smaller, average Motel 6. You will pay more because of the oil industry renting out blocks of rooms. Booking early is essential if you will be stopping in West Texas. I also recommend keeping your gas tank filled up often when you get the chance on the interstate, as sometimes gas stations can be sparse as well.
