The cleanliness of this motel room is terrible. There is debris in every corner and hair everywhere. The ice machine was also down. I spent $63 on this room and I feel as though I wasted every single dollar. I am never staying here again and will let everyone u know not too stay at this motel.

We always stay at a motel 6 because we have two kids and a dogs. This chain allows both to stay free! We're used to the no frills. The room we got was newer and loved the colors. However I do agree the housekeeping staff should take a little more time on the rooms. There was hair all over the... More

I can't believe how different my experience was from some of the recent reviewers. Right off the bat, this is a Motel 6 - it is the bargain basement motel chain - a completely 'no frills' chain. So, knowing that, it's pretty clear that you can't expect amentities like shampoo, tissue, and fridges. The skinny on this particular Motel 6:... More

We stayed here for the bills game and it was horrible. The beds were uncomfortable and the lobby smelled like smoke. It was so bad that we stayed at the Residence Inn in Amherst the next night. But we will NEVER stay here again!

This Motel 6 was cheap,we went there as we came from MA.for the Pats-Bills game.The staff was very nice,but we stayed 2 days the 2nd day they did not make over the room or give us towels,we had to ask.We do not expect too much from Motel 6,but no towels and dirty room is inexcuseable.

Good things: new laminate flooring instead of unsanitary carpeting, refreshed paint and decor, comfortable mattress, reasonable price, good location. Bad things: Poor housekeeping. Hair bits and dust bunnies on floors, gross stain on bedspread. Not likely to be a return guest unless the housekeeping reviews improve.

I stayed at this hotel on August 11th for one night. That was more than enough. The signs outside of the hotel advertise "New Rooms." That's false advertisement. The hotel is a complete dump! The place is so old, there isn't even an elevator! When I checked-in at the front desk, I was told that all of the Internet codes... More

Stayed at the Motel 6, Millersport Hwy, from July 18 through July 22 with my mom while we were in town for a family reunion. I had stayed at this Motel 6 same time last year with my husband and we thought it was a great room for the cost. This year I was surprised to see that they had... More

If you like drugs and drug addicts and drug dealing and prostitutes, this is the place to go. Not only do these people live in the hotel and use it as a place of business, but some of the staff is involved in drug dealing as well. Don't feel safe with your things...in my 9 day stay the only time... More
