If I could rate a zero, I would. We had a 10:00 pm check in (I called) after 9 hours of traveling. There was no one at the desk, just a phone that instructed us to "call for service." We called three times and let it ring at least 20 times each call. A very young boy came to the...

Location is great. Small entry area with a couple small tables and chairs,well maintained. Staff friendly. The room had a new laminate floor but not super clean. The old cheesy bedspreads still exist. Bathroom was ok, the fan was not effective for showers. Maintenance guy checked me out in the morning and said that that room's bathroom was getting updated...

Convenient to the interstate and restaurants. It's Motel 6, but you still get a microwave and fridge, which is great. They also provide cereal in the a.m. and sell popcorn for a buck in the lobby. The staff was helpful and the parking is also convenient. They did have laundry facilities, too.

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...

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...

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!...

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...
