I must admit that I had my doubts about staying here. After having several bad experiences at budget priced motels about 20 years ago (none of them were Motel 6), I have been avoiding them entirely and staying at moderately priced chains. I took some friends visiting from the east coast to Mt. Rushmore recently, and needed a place to stay over night before heading back to Colorado. According to TripAdvisor, Motel 6 Hot Springs is the highest rated motel in the area, so I took a chance.
Feeling some anxiety walking into the building, I was quickly put at ease by how bright and clean the lobby was. My friends and I received a very friendly greeting by Elizabeth at the counter, and she made us feel very welcome. We proceeded to our separate rooms and were absolutely amazed. The rooms were completely spotless, no carpet stains, no peeling wallpaper, bathrooms and tubs shining, everything like new. Even the beds were quite comfortable.
Okay, you don't receive lotions, shampoo, hair dryers, irons, alarm clocks, and mints on the pillow, although you can borrow some of these items at the front desk. But for a very reasonable rate per night, this place is a gem.
If you are looking for a clean and comfortable place to stay for a night or two, I absolutely recommend the Motel 6 at Hot Springs.
