“Great for an overnight stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Very basic but clean hotel for anyone needing a good nights stay while travelling.
The beds were clean, bathroom was spotless and the TV surprisingly got premium cable channels. Perfect for an overnight during our return trip from Florida

My Dad & I stayed here as we were in town for a funeral. He made the reservation for this room. We aren't high maintenance people and this was just a place to sleep for us. However, had it been me making the reservations, I would have chosen a step above this. The staff wasn't the southern definition of friendly but they weren't straight up rude either. This place is bare bones. There are no 'ammenities' to speak of. The television is oooold, by at least 20 years. There is no alarm clock, there isn't even kleenex in the bathroom, only 1 bar of soap at the sink and one bar of soap in the shower. The faucet handles on both the sink and the shower were loose so it was tricky getting the temperature that you wanted and the bathroom door was warped so that we couldn't close it all the way. Don't expect a hair dryer or an ironing board either. The clothes rack and hangers were likely the same ones that have been there since the 50s. I was afraid I might need a tetinus shot after handling it. There IS a mini-fridge and microwave so that was a redeeming quality. The towels appeared to be clean but old, they had a greyish tinge to them as opposed to the white towels you would find at any other establishment. We were booked for 2 nights but only stayed for one, not because of the experience but because we were informed by our family that the trip back to Baltimore (to the airport) would be hell on the morning of our departure so we chose to drive back to Baltimore and stay near the airport. The difference between this Motel 6 and the hotel that I chose to book at the BWI airport made it seem like I was staying in a 5 Diamond resort.

As for the shady characters that are mentioned in other reviews, I don't think that I saw any shady characters but none of the other hotel patrons made eye contact with us. We were standing by our cars saying good-bye to my aunt that first evening and I guess we must have been standing too close to one of the other patrons' cars because he came out of his room and bumped the alarm on his car (sorry dude, we weren't trying to jack your car). Also, we were driving a rental car which happened to be a Cadillac CTS. We noticed later on the next day that one of the wheel covers was missing. Not saying that someone lifted a hubcab off of the rental car at this motel or any other place because Cadillac wheel covers are held on by clips and are notorious for falling off BUT I wouldn't be surprised if someone stole the hubcap at this motel. It definitely looks like the place you could expect that sort of thing.

A good thing that I can say about this place (besides the mini fridge) is that it was quiet. There seemed to be a large amount of people staying at this Motel at the same time as us but we never heard anyone in the parking lot or through the walls. AMAZING accoustics for a cheap motel.

There was either some kind of stake out or this is a popular place for questionable transactions.

There were people loitering around at all hours, not making eye contact, and either lounging on their "way too nice to be at Motel 6" cars or walking around the property holding the same bag for an hour at a time.

The staff was rude, the room smelled funny, and the whole experience was bad. Had we not arrived in the middle of the night and been too exhausted to drive again we would have left immediately. As it was, I was pleasantly surprised to find our car still there when we woke up.

We were searching for something cheap, b/c we wouldn't spend much time in the room... you get what you pay for. We were worried for the entire weekend we would be robbed in our room or approached outside. There was a blonde prostitute-looking girl who just circled around the building talking to herself. There were some other shady looking characters just loitering around. Parking was terrible when we arrived back to our place at 10pm. We had a non-smoking room, which the sheets and comforter reeked of smoke. The shower was nothing more than a mist. There were tons of holes and parts falling in the bathroom. When we turned the light on in the bathroom, it made a terrible loud noise that woke anyone up in the room. The towels were tiny and rough. The beds made your joints ache and the pillows very cheap. Just a terrible overall experience, especially traveling with children.

Room Tip: Spend the extra $5-$10 and get a better place.

. I travel for business and expect a pet friendly, clean, well managed facility and a kind and courteous staff. I'm REALLY LOW MAINTENANCE. To say that the management here is RUDE is an understatement. They also try to nickel and dime you to death. If you MUST stay here, be sure and book your reservation through the Motel6 reservations line because coming to the door will likely get you an inflated rate with pet fees, deposits, etc.... which is AGAINST Motel 6's Pet Friendly policy. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, RUDE, MONEY GRUBBING MANAGEMENT . If you need internet, they say they offer it but it doesn't work consistently in either of this family's managed locations. Don't count on it. FYI- same family manages the Kerrville, TX location. And by all means, if you have trouble, file a formal complaint with corporate headquarters - they get fined out the tail and will hopefully lose their franchise. The hotel isn't bad but the management SUCKS!

The Motel 6 brand is a respected budget hotel name. I've stayed at several over recent years and all have met or exceeded expectations for a low-priced, clean, no frills night away from home. Thus, I expected a similar experience at the Fredericksburg Motel 6 south of the city on US 1. Perhaps the $30 advertised price should have warned me that this was not my grandfather's Motel 6. It is an old property, poorly maintained and unspeakably dirty. Perhaps five years ago it would have been an average Motel 6 (I suspect it is reincarnated as such since it is a large motel, bigger than the usual M6 footprint) but that train has left the station. The room stank; the toilet was stopped up; the faucets in sink and tub were loose, if functional; the carpet contains the cure for tropical diseases and the bathroom door had a fist mark in its middle, no doubt the result of a more demonstrative unsatisfied lodger. Don't stay here if they give you the room for free.
