After tracking for 7 hours to see a doctor after having back surgery, this is not the hotel. The room was bee uncomfortable. I only had a wooden chair to sit in. I had to alternate from bed to chair a lot. So upon waking I am hurting real bad. I am glad I remembered my shampoo and conditioner. They... More

Great location, friendly staff, clean room. Pretty basic decor, bordering on industrial. No elevator to second floor. Excellent basic accommodations. Ample parking. Close to restaurants. Easy access to interstate.

I was a little surprised that it was on a backroad, rather than the main one. It is was not the easiest to find, but not impossible since I used GPS. I expected it to be quieter than it was, but I could still hear the highway, though maybe not as bad as others I have been in. It is... More

Very clean rooms with very friendly staff. Located right off the freeway but not at all noisy. Located just a couple of blocks from a great bbq restaurant with a drive thru window you can get the food & take it to your room. Homemade cheese muffins & home cut fries with the BEST BBQ meats you can buy!

A nice, clean budget hotel. I would stay here again. Cheap and friendly option just a few minutes from all the action. Didn't feel like a motel 6. Shampoo would be nice in the rooms though! That's my only issue.

i admit that this is a budget chain, but they do have standards and this location just needs to be completely remodeled. What was once a Red Roof, this property does not look like it has ever been updated. The staff was friendly enough, but they could no make up for the dreadful rooms.

This Motel 6 needs a good clean. The sheets looks like they were used before, the chair was full of old dust, was not impressed. WiFi had to be paid for extra, did not like that either (advertising on the billboard was WiFi, which suggests to me FREE WiFi). However, staff were very nice, check in took some time but... More

We checked in at 12:30 a.m. and they still charged us full price for the room. The beds were clean but the rugs were disgusting! We didn't walk barefoot on them for fear of contracting something. It was late and we were too tired to look for another place to stay.
