“Good, clean hotel with exceptional service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This is a pet friendly, no frills motel with exceptional staff. I drive from Flagstaff AZ to Austin TX regularly, and will go out of my way to stay here. Ruben at the front desk is helpful, cheerful and efficient, and all the staff is well trained and nice. Budget accommodation at its best.

This is a review for Motel 6 in Van Horn, TX

The room was very plain, outdated and only marginally clean. Some of the items in the room were excessively worn and needed to be replaced. What made this stay untenable, however, was the noise. Unfortunately, a maid tried to come in two (2) hours before my wake up call. She inserted her key card into my door to activate the lock, but the inside slide-lock stopped her entry. She pushed on the door many times and I woke up, of course, with all of the metal-on-metal clashing. Question: Isn't one attempt at opening a door enough to establish that the door is locked (on the inside) and that someone is in there trying to sleep?

I mentioned this problem to the manager and her reply was that the maids go by whether a car is parked directly in front of the room to determine if there is someone in the room. In my case, as is the case for others, someone had parked in front of my room and I had to park elsewhere the night before when I checked in late night. Said system of detection is, at best, flawed: this seems like a pretty unreliable indicator to me if someone is in a given room or not.

The room itself was not very soundproof. When others would walk by the room, their voices sounded like they are right in the room. If the talking outside doesn’t wake you up several times during the night or early morning, or the maid doesn't wake you, then the train that passes nearby will do the deed. I will sleep in my car before considering "sleeping" at this establishment again.

Room Tip: There are no "good" rooms. Seek an establishment elsewhere in Van Horn for a good room.

The room was dated but very clean. The night I stayed was cold and the heater warmed up the room very quickly. I also thought because you park right in front of the rooms that noise may be an issue but it wasn't really. If I am passing through that area again, I'd stay there another time.

The room was noisy, people were coming in late and you could hear them talking outside and in the room next door and fully understand the conversation. The train came through several times that night and it was unbelievable! The bed was as hard as a brick and one side was uneven so I kept rolling into a hole. The room also had an odor in it when I arrived. I would have slept better in the car. Motel 6, it is what it is...

Room Tip: Ask to see the room before you buy it

It was a hot day when I arrived and I was happy for the speedy checkin and the cool room with the AC already on. Parking in front of the door to your room made unloading fast. The room looked freshly painted and was exceptionally clean even though this is an older property without the newer upgrades. Outdoor pool was closed for the season. Two things on the negative side- there is a train track right next to the main street so if noise keeps you awake, Van Horn may not be the best plalce to stay and olny light was from two small wall mounted lamps on the far side of the bed. There was no light above the desk which made working there far too dark. Internet was free. Keep in mind this is a no frills kind of place-not even a picture on the wall, but if you just want a clean room at a reasonable place I would recomemend this Motel 6.

I was moving & found this motel late a night. It turned out to be a great choice. There were a lot of motels in this small town, but I am glad I chose this one. It is small, inexpensive & I felt very safe there. The room was clean and I appreciated the kindness of the employees there. I would stay there again if I were ever to come back this way. It was all I needed for an overnight stay. I hope this is helpful for anyone else looking for the same thing, a nice overnight stay.

the outside grounds are very nicely landscaped and this motel 6 is smaller than most, so it has a nicer outside appearance. the lobby area was nice and check-in was quick. there is a computer in the lobby for public use. the rooms have microwave and fridge at no extra charge, unlike most motel 6s. the room was the usual, basic motel 6 type room with a dirty bathroom floor.
there are even cheaper motels that include breakfast east of this motel 6 on the same street, but they don't look as nice as this motel 6.
so overall it's an ok place to stay for a low rate.
