“A Motel 6 on a freeway, no more, no less”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2009

As you travel along I-5, you come across innumerable chain lodgings and restaurants. Their advantage is that you can feel fairly certain you won't get a dump, even if they lack charm or uniqueness. Motel 6, and specifically this Motel 6, is no exception. If you need a place to spend the night after a day of driving on the freeway, this is as good as any other, and almost certainly costs less money.

Our price was $65 per night grand total. The staff was polite and professional. The room was quiet, clean, and fully stocked. It featured shower-only bath (ie, no tub), air-conditioning, clock radio, phone, and TV (22 channels). Free amenities included parking and local phone calls. Wireless internet access was an extra $3. On-site was an outdoor pool and a laundry room. Several restaurants, fast food places, and convenience stores were nearby.

The place was inexpensive, right off the freeway, and gave us what we needed for the night. No charm, no culture, no nightlife -- but we weren't looking for any of that.

I've used Motel 6 before and this one is not as good as others. It faces I-5 so if you stay there get a room that doesn't face I-5. It wasn't as clean as some I've stayed in and so I wore flip flops in the shower. I didn't like the way the bed and sheeting looked so I used my sleeping bag on top of the bed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2008

We were two families taking a quick road trip to Mt. St. Helens. The Motel 6 was the cheapest place in the area with a pool and the only place with an outdoor pool. The pool is V shaped and has a deep end and shallow end. It was sparkling clean. It's bigger than other Motel 6 pools that I've seen. The kids loved it.

We had rooms facing highway 5, but the rooms weren't noisy. The rooms were clean. We learned something new - you can get a microwave and minifrig in the room for an extra $3. You can also get high speed wireless for $3. Pool towels are free.

  • Liked — the pool
  • Disliked — next to the highway

As someone who lives here, I can tell you that this is a good hotel for the money. It is in a good location and has a nice pool. Although you pay a little more, the Red Lion, Super 8, Comfort Inn and The Ramada are also very good. The Red Lion is the best, but Super 8 has a very nice indoor swimming pool. Stay away from the Budget Inn, or the Electra Motel. Those are dives.
