Newly renovated off interstate 90. This mid range price came with clean sheets and hot water, That's all I needed for this stay. It is bare no fridge,microwave, or place to store your clothes, at least not in my room. However, it's centrally located with multiple restaurants around and a Walmart just up the street. Good spot for truckers who... More

In the usual Motel 6 not-so-warm-and fuzzy room motif, it's bare-bones and cheap here, complete with: ghastly orange walls, a flimsy chair, tiny bedside tables, unCarpeted floors, a reasonably comfy bed (partially in that pathetic orange) and an approx. 3x2-ft room table. (no useful room desk? tho with plenty of space for one, there's no desk and accompanying chair, as... More

My husband booked a room for an overnight stay at the Motel 6 in Rockford, IL. Upon arrival, it was clear that this was a bare bones hotel. Somewhat disappointing, given the fact that it cost us $80, but we were only staying overnight, so we could make it work. My sons (8 and 1) were very excited to be... More

THE MOTEL WAS SCARY BAD!! First I couldn't get the door to my room open, it was warped, or something??? When I finally did get it open, of course it was hard to shut. My first thought was, I couldn't get out in a fire!! Proceeded into the room........ NO carpet, not even nice linoleum, just cold & hard, like... More

Glad I didn't read the reviews before I stopped. My room was clearly recently updated. It had the faux hardwood floors that are becoming more common. The bed was firm but not a board. Quite comfortable. The room was clean, the water hot for a shower, a great value.

We are traveling and just looking for a clean place to sleep with decent wifi. The wifi connected,but was weak. The king sized bed was ok. We could have used more than two pillows. I liked that we didn't have carpeting, but it made it more obvious that the floor wasn't clean. There was a lot of dust under the... More

I usually stay here each September, the evening before "Radio Expo", a Ham Radio & Electronics flea market/convention held at the nearby Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere.
