There was a fly in my room and I got a couple of bites in the middle of the night. Air conditioner worked great. Really good for one night stay. I suggest it if your just sleeping and showering for a night. Also a really comfortable bed and pillows.

I chose this property b/c there is was no pet fee for my two dogs. I had a king room that was large and clean. There are hard wood floors, so be careful with your dog. I was on the second floor and it was very quiet...although I don't think they were busy. I also had a fridge and microwave!... More

This is an older Motel 6 that has been updated somewhat but not entirely. There was, for example, a great new shower head but an old plastic handle with a piece broken off. The sink and faucet had been upgraded but the bathroom door was beat up. The floor has the vinyl imitation wood that seems to be in all... More

We picked this Motel 6 for convenience and we're happy with clean, comfortable room we got at a very low price. We asked for a handicapped room and actually got one. The first floor is below grade. There was a ramp both down and up. The bathroom had big, sturdy grab bars by the tub and the toilet; very helpful.... More

Fridge was dirty, and so was the bed spreads. Too late to complain, and manager was not in the area when we checked out. Rest was ok. A cheap place to stay for the night. Works if you are only in your room 6 hours.

Only laughable thing is that at 8:30 the next morning, we were greeted with empty coffee urns and a sign that asks checkout persons to leave their key at the desk. No people visible at all. Maybe they had an emergency.

My room was in the basement and my broken window was literally ground level, room smells musty, A/C doesn't blow cold even set at 67*, broken dresser with missing/mismatched knobs (not that I would use it anyway...gross), the electric outlet next the bed is coming out of the wall and the light flickered as a result, bathroom reeks of mildew...

nice stop along the way. Room was clean, quiet and comfy beds. lots of food places right in the local area, some within walking. Was just passing through so not looking for any extras. Just a place to catch a wink.

This is a budget hotel, so don't expect all the frills. This is one of those "glad to have clean sheets and hot water" kind of places, NOT the best place for families, just the place for a quick overnight stay. Expect to kill a few spiders! I killed three before sleeping. The price is high for a M6 and... More

We will never go back to this place. The only good thing was it was cheap. The first room assigned to us already had someone in it! The next room was actually vacant, but there was only one chair, there was only one nightstand. The bathroom had a used bar of soap still in the shower and the bath mat... More
