“Terrible Place to stay!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2008

This place is the worst! They recently remodeled the rooms to make it look like the rest of the Motel 6 chain, so the rooms look fairly clean. However, our room smelled like smoke even though we asked for a non-smoking and they had non-smoking signs in the room. The worst part was that my roommate got his laptop and laptop bag stolen when the room was being cleaned, so clearly appeared to be an inside job. Our other friends who had the room next to us had their room key code changed in the middle of our stay and couldn't get into their room. When we went to the front desk to discuss the 2 situations, the workers at the desk were extremely rude and one of them insisted that the customer is always wrong. The manager was a bit nicer once he finally showed up the day we departed this place from hell. So anyone considering this Motel 6, please look elsewhere!

The room was quite expensive, 70$, but it was clean and in a quiet area. However, the switchboard called me two or three times in the middle of the night, claiming there was a problem with said switchboard and that my room kept on showing up on their panel. I complained the next morning. The clerk at the counter apologized, but it sounded very hollow. He promised me a 10% discount next time I came to that motel, as if that would actually happen.

  • Liked — Very convenient location to shops and restaurants.
  • Disliked — Been woken up several times during the night by the operator.

We stayed 1 night and escaped the next. The police stopped us and asked us"what are you doing here, don't you know bad things happen at this motel like drugs,gangs and prostitution, get out now". Phone calls were made threatening to "take your girls out of your rooms and rape them". Drug paraphanelia was found all over the parking lots. We had to escape at 3:00 in the morning with our lives. The manager has been called and so has the Executive Office of the CEO of Motel 6 with NO RESPONSE. STAY AWAY isn't enough to describe this HELL HOLE. The manager told me that "Managers were replaced a week ago and police are there all the time".MOTEL 6 NO WAY!
And we had 7 rooms and they still have our money! Don't make the same mistake. There are plenty of other Motels to stay in. We will never stay in a MOTEL 6 anywhere ever again as the CEO's office hasn't even responded to this PROBLEM.

Stayed January 2008
