Wonderful motel….NOT! You do not want to stay in this dump. I get there at three in the afternoon; the discourteous girl at the front desk says they are shorthanded, took my reservation and told me to return in an hour; I waited, returned; she was beyond rude, said she had no rooms- I reminded her of my reservation, she...

The management and staff of the Motel 6 on Vulcan Road in Birmingham, AL are the most unprofessional, disrespectful and classless group of individuals I have ever encountered. Not only do they not clean their guest rooms daily, when asked for any type of assistance (i.e. clean towels or toilet paper), you are met with rude staff and incompetent management....

Came to Birmingham for a quick business trip. Stopped here for convenience and price. The rooms are nice, nothing fancy but nice and remodeled. Plus, you can't beat the price. The only downfall is no free-wifi; you have to pay for it. It's only $3, so it's not a deal breaker.

For the price and location it's unbeatable. The rooms are modern and always clean. We had one sketchy incident one time with another guest knocking at our door, but the manager took care of us and gave us a free stay for the trouble. It doesn't have breakfast, but there are plenty of places nearby to eat. I would say...

This is my first stay in any Motel 6. Only thing I like was for fake hardwood floors, i.e cleanness of floor. You can buy whole furniture for the room for less than $50. Sink has cracks in it. I don't know Motel 6 franchise inspects there hotels for compliance etc. Changing TV channels with long pauses makes you turn...

This motel was clean and comfortable. The price was right! Staff was very accommodating to our change of plans. The only complaint I have is the lack of amenities....this place went to the extreme of charging us for sub-standard wi-fi! No shampoo or lotion, hair dryer had to be requested at the office. No continental breakfast provided.

The hotel is on a backroad- hard to find. The office is on the side of the building facing the road. You have to park and walk to the office (not a good idea in cold or wet weather). The checkin was ok. The room was ok. No phone, no alarm clock, no fridg/microwave, soap but nothing else. The TV...

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.
