“Never again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

Internet did not work. There was one wash cloth and one hand towel when we checked in - that was it. Front desk would not answer the phone when we called to request towels. Mirrors in the bathroom were covered with white, milky smears and stayed that way for the entire 4 day stay. Sheets were not changed, bed was barely straightened up, not really made. Towels were not replaced. Someone really needs to watch what the housekeeping staff is supposed to be doing. Will definitely never stay here again.

Very clean and roomy but remember to bring your own shampoo. Free coffee in the lobby in the mornings and has free WiFi. It has all the basics one needs, is inexpensive and is close to both the I81 and I64 highways.

We decided to try the Motel 6 in Lexington, VA because they allow dogs. What a surprise to find out we got a very clean room, no extra pet charge, beds very comfortable, and the Manager was so helpful. Even though he was very busy he took the time to make a map to direct us to some of the best restaurants in Lexington. We will definitely make this our regular stop when traveling South.

Visited April 2014, my room had a bad smell coming from somewhere. After running the ventilation unit fan it cleared some of the smell but not all. Noticed the bathroom ventilation fan was caked with dust. Cable offerings were sparse and basic. Bed was ok but noticed no coverings on box springs/ mattress base. Had room next to laundry room so noise was a problem for sleeping most of the evening. Was clean but the room badly needed updating and generally looked beat. Front desk was efficient and helpful but would not recommend. Look elsewhere.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere.

I would certainly recommend this motel to anyone. Thw rates are reasonable (rare these days), the beds are comfy, rooms are clean, and the owner/manager is very nice and accommodating. In regard to lodging in lexington, you will pay significantly more money for rooms that are really no better but that include a breakfast. A good choice!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

In giving this 5 stars I am rating this in comparison to other motels on interstates, not comparing it to luxury hotels with a view or eco-lodges. I was looking for a place to stop late in the evening on the interstate and was a little put off by the reviews. Everything in the room was new and spotless. There were even granite countertops in the bathroom- who expects that in a Motel 6?
I have seen much, much worse in mid-range chains.
Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. I had a room under a staircase and was afraid I would be awakened by early morning foot traffic but the place seemed to be well-built. Price was $90 with tax, more than the usual but the town was completely booked up for a horse event.

Place is OK if all you need is a place to crash for the night and bring your own shampoo. It's clean, but bare bones. No coffee maker in the room, but you can get some at the front desk, no breakfast set up, skimpy towels. AndI also noticed no clock
