Scary doesn't even begin to describe our experience. I've traveled a lot in my life and have stayed in an assortment of hotels and there have been a few that I still shake my head about, but this was the first time I've ever requested my money back and left due to the condition of the room. First, there was... More

I made reservations for our stay here on Expedia.com, and they shouldn't even list this as a place to stay! Cheap enough if you ABSOLUTELY have no other affordable options for a place to stay for a night. Flies were abundant. TV had 13 channels, mattresses were old and sunk in...floor was sticky. Car alarms going off in the parking... More

The room was clean, the beds comfortable enough, though uncertain of cleanliness. The decor was pleasantly bright and nice. The motel was right off the main highway/street, so a bit rough overall. The bathroom door was broken and wouldn't close, the toilet wobbled dangerously and the bathtub was at a pretty amazing slant. But you know what? We chose motel... More

Folks, this a Motel 6. It's a good place to stay when you're on the way to your next destination. Especially when you need a pet friendly room. My rooms have always been clean enough. The comments I've seen about this place must've been written by people that are used to checking in to a $39 a night Hilton.

Stayed here 1 night while traveling, and since we have a small dog, it's convenient. Definitely not one of the better ones. Musty smell, a little scary on the area as well. Not very clean. Desk clerk was personable though. Won't make it a stop next time.

Filthy, bleak, ill conceived, bad location, broken fixtures, impacted dirt, mold growing, smelly, hard matresses, tube tvs, no alarm clock; all this for the same price you would pay at a brand new, nicely appointed Motel 6. I'll sleep in my truck before I stay there again.

Pretty much what we expected. Room was dated but clean enough. Included TV with good reception, microwave, refrig and decent WIFI. Bath room needs some work. Soap and towels provided, no tissue, cups, ice, food or coffee. (Waffel House across the street)

We were forced to stay here during severe icy weather. We found a dirty used condom in not one room but two! The ceiling was leaking and chipping in one room and the heater did not work in either of the rooms. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
