I booked this place knowing the reviews were poor because our flight was getting in late and we were only staying for a night. I really didn't feel like spending $100 for a few hours sleep at the Motel 6. The first indication that this place wasn't right was the big notice at the front desk saying that once you checked in, you had to stay (more or less). But it was 2 a.m. and we were tired from our trip, so bailing at that point wasn't exactly in the cards.
The place looks like someone put a lot of money in all of the wrong places about 20 years ago. The floors in the room are tile, and who ever tiled it failed to level the ground first. The linens are not hotel grade-- nor are the curtains, pretty lousy when you are in the land of the midnight sun. Our room was really muggy when we got there, but when we saw the window had no screen we were forced to deal with the loud AC unit instead.
I don't know if the room was actually dirty, but its strange appearance made us feel unseasy. It didn't help that the bed was rock hard and the pillows flat and comfortless. My boyfriend put a shirt over his pillow so he wouldn't have to touch it. After about six hours of sleep we had enough with the place and checked out without even testing the shower. We didn't want to spend another minute there.
In hindsight, it would have been better to spend a little bit more money on a place that still has some dignity and self respect left. This place should be sued for insinuating that it's America's Best or that it has suites.
