This is the first Motel 6 I've stayed at that's the "new" version. I had my cat with me and he was sick of traveling across the country, so I was glad that the room was pretty big for a Motel 6 and he had room to run around.
The room was interesting. It was sort of a weird modern theme with fake bamboo linoleum. It had a giant bed with lots of pillows and it was quite comfy. Especially compared with other Motel 6 beds. I specifically chose this motel because I wanted to go check out the River Walk and Alamo while I was there, but didn't want to stay in a fancier hotel since I was just passing through. It was a short walk to the downtown area, but walking back alone at night was a little sketchy. The parking lot is shared with a McDonald's and it practically under a freeway. Lots of interested characters hanging around. At one point after I'd gone to bed I heard someone yelling outside. I went to check and it was a guy outside McDonald's yelling at his shopping cart. I was a bit worried about having my new car with all my belongings parked there, but it was well lit and I think they had a security guard.
So, overall this place is fine for a one night stopover, but based on the location I don't think I'd leave my car there for longer than that. It got 4 stars based on other Motel 6's, not on other hotels.
