Recently visited the area to attend my mother-in-law's funeral. Room was clean and comfortable, if somewhat minimalistic, in good condition and desk staff was friendly and helpful. My only issues were: A) Coat hanger (closet bar) was missing. There was a separate area for shirts/dresses. B) No place for mini-fridge. It was sitting on the floor and also leaked condensation....

Five stars for a hotel in this price range. 90 minutes from chicago.. my room was non carpeted, my preference due to astma, and very clean. It had a fridge and microwave but no hair dryer. Easy sccess to and from interstate and close to restruants

I stayed here one night just passing through and was very surprised by the upgrades this hotel made. The bed was wonderful. I slept great! It was clean and the clerk was polite and helpful. And the truck stop up the street has great food..

Just needed a place to stay over during a long trip. Traveling alone I felt the room was clean, my car and myself safe. Bed comfortable, bathroom clean, room newly remodeled. I actually felt the bare floors and unupholstered furnature was refreshing because you never know what was the last year a carpet or fabric chair was actually washed.... I'm... More

My wife and I stopped here as we could not make it all the way home from our trip to Alabama. The rooms were clean and had new fixtures and furniture, all of which seemed to be designed for easy cleaning (i.e. no carpets but rather laminate floors, vinyl cafe bench, etc.). It was just what we needed to catch... More

Compared to other places to stay in the Gilman area, this is a five-star establishment. It's certainly not the fanciest place on the planet, but for under $70 a night, it fulfills all expectations I have for a Motel 6. I don't usually stay in motels, but since I have family nearby I've been staying here for years. The staff... More

After a few bad experiences at Motel 6, I was pretty reluctant to try this one. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and eager to please. I asked for a room on the top floor which I got and she made sure I was in a quiet spot where I wouldn't be disturbed. The room was cleaner... More

The sign out front said 'all new rooms'. Not sure how long the sign had been there because the décor was seemingly a mixture from the 60's, 80's and the Jetsons. Definitely no frills. Weird lighting. Slept well. If you're not expecting much this is just the place for you.

We stopped here after coming home from the BWCA. While I write this review I realize it is nothing like the nature we had just experienced way out in MN however it was a nice place to get a good shower and some rest. Staff never smiled but that's nothing new in the real world. I'd stay here again traveling,... More
