When we drove down from NY last fall, we always stayed at Motel 6 because we have dogs. Most were fine for a night, then we stayed here for about 10 days last fall, and again last week so. The rooms have always been very clean with fresh linens and towels. At some Motel 6s the guests can be a... More

I typically don't stay at Motel 6 due to the sketchy people they always seem to attract, but my boyfriend and I needed somewhere affordable to spend New Years Eve after a party. There is a front building with floors 1 & 2 and a back building with floors 3 & 4; we stayed in the back building. As we... More

I have to say I read the reviews and was scared to death but, we totally enjoyed our visit . The people amazingly helpful and not rude at all and I got to thinking that maybe the people that wrote reviews should maybe think about how they treated the staff. The room was awesome and clean. Best of all there... More

I do love the refreshed rooms! Very modern and clean! But not clean enough, as I woke up to roaches crawling around the floor in the middle of the night. Price was extremely reasonable, comes with mini fridge and microwave and in room safe. Pets accepted easily.

After a month of condos and beach motels we booked a room at Fairgrounds Motel 6 near the Tampa airport so that we could fly home the next morning. We were very happy with the room. It was clean and fresh smelling with updated furniture. This is a basic no frills motel. (complimentary coffee in the lobby is about It)... More

The lady at the desk was rude and nasty. Did not really want to be there! I decided to check before I bought the room! It was so incredibly nasty & dirty! I agree spend $20 more & stay somewhere else!

We stay at Motel 6 a lot when we travel and this was the worst we ever stayed at. Room had bad odor, fan didn't work, shower converter didn't work, chair back broken, room didn't look clean. No bulb in one light, no Kleenex, pillows were in bad shape. Will rethink about Motel 6 for rest of our trip.
