I will preface this review by saying we are not the "pampered princesses" type. We were in town for a horse show...we have no problem getting dirty and just need a place to lay our heads for a couple hours and shower. Pulling up we immediately knew that this motel was a mistake. There were crowds of "questionable" people in the parking lot, ghetto music, car alarms going off, horns honking and a guy yelling obscenities to a scantily dressed female.
We asked for extra towels, as there were only two paper thin, tiny towels and there were five of us in the room. The guy working the front desk would only give us two extra towels, which he rolled up and stuffed through the window of the bullet proof glass he was sitting behind.
The room was disgusting. The carpet was sticky, and didn't even make it to the door jam. The bed frame of one of the beds was broken with a big metal bar sticking out, which one of us promptly busted a shin on. The room smelled, and there were dead (I consider that a plus) roaches on the floor. Big ones.
The traffic coming in and out of the neighboring rooms was indicative of some sort of businesses operating out of them. I can only venture a guess that the customers were not there for legitimate purposes.
When I had to run to the truck for my pillow (as I wasn't touching theirs) I holstered my Sig .380. I have never been so glad to have a conceal and carry permit in my life. I slept with my gun under my pillow, literally.
I cannot express how strongly I would recommend that you NEVER stay at this Motel 6. Again, I reiterate that we are not the "pampered princesses" type, but this hotel was disgusting, and more importantly it was dangerous.
