“Overnight stay that met my needs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I stayed at this property on June 13, 2013 for one night. I researched this area for about 5 weeks before my trip. Yes, this motel is very close to the airport, and offers a free shuttle! The price was great at 52.00 for the night. My concern is the area. I agree with some of the reviews, it does feel a little gray and a little unsafe. The area has a Ruby Tuesday, waffle house and McDonald's right next to the property! A quick 30 second walk. The staff was professional and nice, and answered all of my questions! If you have a problem with any motel or hotel, try to be polite and nice with the desk staff (They can make or break your stay). For the price and shuttle service, it's on point! I slept like a baby, the bedding was awesome! The next two nights I stayed at the Hilton Downtown in ATL. I got a better night sleep at the Motel 6, than I did at the Hilton in the Executive suite! Hmmm, what does that tell ya. The bed at Motel 6 was so comfortable than the 189.00 per night stay I had at the Hilton (I stayed on the top floor with city view)! All in all, motel 6 was a great stay, I will stay again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floor, facing the front of the motel! My room was clean and smelled fin...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We always like to discuss all our reviews in our team meetings, good reviews become great motivational tools, and the bad reviews become great tools for continuous improvement with our team.

I am very glad that you had a great night sleep at our hotel, sorry to hear that you were not able to sleep as well at your next hotel, but I do hope you enjoyed the great view of of fair city.

I have taken note of your concerns about the area, we are working on this, there is a new Community Improvement District being formed for the Airport Area and I am involved with it. The organization is run by business owners and representatives and with funds from the area businesses and other government grands and awards we will be working over the next few years in creating a very nice and inviting area.

Thank you for staying at our hotel and in our City of Atlanta, I do hope that if your travels bring you back to Atlanta, we will have the opportunity to serve you again.

Best Regards,

Nilesh Patel

My wife and I had to drop someone at the airport and fly out the next morning, so we decided to spend the night near the airport rather than driving to West Georgia. We found this Motel 6 for a very good price and decided to giver it a try. We were pleasantly surprised with a reasonable, well kept and clean room. It was far from perfect, but you get what you pay for.

The only real negative was the smoke odor in the room from the days when smoking in the room was OK. I guess only a significant remodel tearing up carpet and changing the beds entirely. I wish they would do that, but then, it won't cost 49 bucks a night any more, will it?

One smaller upgrade that would make me and other customers happier would be simply replacing the sorry excuse for pillows. We had a big, fairly comfortable king size bed and three wimpy little pillows.

So, would I go back to this hotel? Yes, if I needed a clean bed to sleep.

Stayed in room 619. Not very clean and the AC didn't work. Got in around 1:30 am due to delayed flight, so didn't ask to switch rooms because we were tired. The shuttle was 15 minutes late. Spend your money elsewhere!

In this case we failed to meet our goals and I am sorry for your experience. I thank you for provide your frank feedback, we will discuss this in our management meeting and work on tweaking our systems to make sure these issues are take care of so that our guests do not face the issues in the future.

I hope you will be able to give us a second chance to serve you in the future when your travels bring you to Atlanta.

Stayed here because of proximity to the airport. Shockingly, there were no disturbances in terms of plane noises while in room. Of course once outside you are reminded of how close u actually are to the airport. 4th floor smelt a bit smokey but once in the room, it was fine. Loads of food options nearby also. Didn't like that the shuttle was late and made so many stops before we got to the airport.

Dear Guest,

We thank you for staying at our Motel 6 Atlanta Airport.

We are working on getting better and taking care of our guests and we take Trip Advisor feedback very seriously. It helps us to hold our team accountable and also to help us to improve, and it is also a great motivational tool when we have guests leave a posative review.

You are right about the airport noise, we are not in the flight paths of the airplanes so the noise is less, but being under a mile from the airport, so guests that are light sleepers may still hear noise. Also we have many restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, infact across the street and this is a great plus for our guests.

I am sorry to hear that the hotel shuttle was late in picking you up. Also the fact that there were multiple stops before getting to the airport. On ocassion, we do have some guests that stay with us that are going to the Delta HQ, or Flight Safety or Express Jet, in those cases we do drop them off there before going to the airport, but all these stops are right behind our hotel. Normally we are the last stop for pick and the shuttle goes directly to the Airport.

Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we hope you have the opportunity to come through Atlanta again and we will have the chance to serve you.

Best Regards,

Nilesh Patel

I had 13 hours between flights and decided to book this hotel, because I actually needed a free shuttle and some basic room to sleep.

First – do not be fooled by misleading information that this hotel offers free airport shuttle service. Yes, it’s offered, but from DOMESTIC terminal only.

I arrived to the International terminal. There was no sign where to find hotel shuttles. After 30 minutes going around and asking almost everyone I was finally told, that airport shuttles are 30 minutes away from this terminal!!! And there is a bus that can take me there. Do not forget to take a coat with you, because you have to wait for this bus outside. …then about 30 minutes in the arctic cold bus I arrived to Domestic terminal ..

Ok, finally 2 hours after arrival, completely frozen I got to the hotel. Hot coffee, tea, please! No way. Even in the lobby you can’t get it at night! And there is no coffeemaker in the room.

Room - old (furniture, TV, fridge, microwave) , worn out, but clean enough (except very dirty stained carpet). Bed is not very comfortable, but at least I didn't see any bed bugs.
In the morning I was able to get some coffee in the lobby.

I think there must be information ( at the hotel web site) that the shuttle service is offered from Domestic terminal only. And would be really nice if the hotel offered hot coffee (or just hot water to make it) 24/7, at least in the lobby.

Dear Guest,

I am sorry to hear about your troubles with catching our hotel shuttle. I have taken your feedback which is very valid, and I will do my best to work with the different websites that have our hotel's shuttle information, to notify guest that we cannot pick up at the International Terminal.

I understand your fustrations. I apologies, when guest call us about our shuttle we do verify over the phone if they are landing at International Terminal or Demostic Terminal and provide the appropriate instructions.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us feedback.

No great hopes for this but the room was tidy and the water was hot which is all you can ask for when you want somewhere cheap that is located close to the airport. Free coffee in the morning was a bonus too and the location to a decent diner and other amenities is handy. Television didn't work at all and the wi fi was a bit patchy and I reckon there is a good chance your room won't be perfect, but not in any meaningful way that will hamper a one night layover. Oh, and our non-smoking room smelled of weed. But still, a good night's kip was enjoyed.

I read all the reviews prior to my stay, but I decided to take my chances and keep my reservations. The staff was very friendly and they provided great customer service, but the rooms were disgusting. The comforter and sheets smelled like someone's bad body ordor.. The entire floor that we stayed on smelt like weed, and our room smelt like cigarette smoke even though its was "suppose" to be a non-smoking room. When my boyfriend and I left to go and get food some kid popped out of his room asking us "do we know were the weed is it". Guest shouted all night down the hallways. Needless I felt very uncomortable staying there for that one night, but everything else around that area was completely booked for the weekend. On our next visit to Atlanta we definitely won't be stay here again.

Dear Guest,

I am sorry for your stay experience at our hotel. Our 2nd floor is the only smoking floor.

I am sorry that your non-smoking room smelt like smoke. I have let housekeeping know that they should have done a better job of eliminating the odors.

The weekend you stayed the entire city was sold out due to city wide events that were going on. We do our best to try and screen the guest coming into the hotel but it is impossible to know if a guest is going to smoke on a non-smoking floor.

Once we find out, we do but the guest on a do-not rent list, which will not let them book a room at our hotel in their name.
