“Clean. Nice. Surprisingly Modern.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Spent the night here on the way to Austin. The exterior looks a little dated, but the inside of the rooms was great. The room had nice bamboo floors, modular furniture, bathroom organizer and new flat screen TV. I was very impressed. All that for under $50.

Room Tip: The room on the top floor was great, stairs were a little steep though.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2009

This is probably the most basic and stripped-down motel I have ever been to. Just a bed, a TV and a shower. Not even an alarm clock. However, the sheets were clean and the bed was alright. The rest of the room was in pretty rough shape though, and the bathroom was the same. Not very dirty, just in need of some serious renovations/repairs. This was the worst Motel 6 room I have stayed in.

I think my main issue with the hotel was the clientele. I stayed on a Friday night and the hotel was packed with some seriously seedy people who were up most of the night causing trouble. To the credit of Motel 6 they did have a security guard who was clearly on the ball, but there was no way he could be everywhere at once. I made sure the lock was on my door.

Despite the problems, the hotel was passable as a place to sleep. However, I paid $60 for two people which was the rack rate for a Friday night, and I could've got something a lot nicer on Priceline for cheaper had I had the time.

Room was very clean and quiet. However, if you are looking for beautiful furniture, bedding, etc. look elsewhere. Probably the most "stripped down", basic Motel 6 I have every been to.

Had no hot water the next morning for my shower. Asked the desk clerk if she was aware of the problems. She said she was - that the entire hotel was having a problem, but no apology was made.

  • Liked — the quiet, also had a lenient cancellation policy
  • Disliked — no hot water for my shower

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2007

Non-smoking room was covered in cigarette burns, smelled so bad. Folks were out smoking in the hallways inside the motel. Telephone was pulled out of the wall. In the morning, roaches were crawling out from behind the furniture, and air conditioner stopped working during the night. This is a pig-sty and should be torn down.
Nothing was done up front about my complaints, and I'll never go to a Motel 6 again.
