I had reserved this room about a week prior to our trip to the area. I booked it because I got a great rate of about $60. I made my reservation directly, by phone with the hotel. When we arrived it was close to midnight, and they had no record of my reservation, and the hotel was full. I suspect... More

We were laying in bed and started to feel itchy...we got up and there were bugs EVERYWHERE in our bed! Bigger ones that looked like ticks, small red ones, and some brown ones. When we went to the front desk to leave, the guy didn't even act surprised when we told him! He just asked for our key. I'm never... More

Drain in shower did not work so you had a bath at the same time as showering, TV did not work, lino on the floor, no hairdryer or toiletries. Windows did not open and curtains smelt of cigarette smoke. The bed was comfortable, pillows soft and wifi was good.

The beds were hard as rocks. It looked like it was renovated but the bathtub was poorly reconstructed underneath. Otherwise it was clean. The security on the door didn't work and we were in the basement floor.

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.
