Very clean smells good when you walk in door. Beds comfortable. Laminate floors so no carpet! Easy walking to stadium. We also walked to Nick's after game It isn't a Marriott if small motels had its own category id rate it 5. They work hard to make it pleasant to spend night for around $50 a night

I have often stayed at Motel 6 because it is usually the least expensive place in Bloomington...but prices fluctuate. The rooms are clean, but the decor is basic. I believe they have replaced the carpet in all the rooms with some type of laminate flooring. Clean and modern but not high end.

I was leery of staying here after reading some of the previous reviews on Google and TripAdvisor. The clerk at the front desk was friendly, the room was spacious , the towels and sheets were clean , and I didn't find any bugs! There was no refrigerator or microwave , but I was told one was available with an extra...

The good: Rooms are large, the motel is pet-friendly, and the place is cheap. Wifi works well. The location is great, and the front desk staff could not be any nicer. The bad: No pool. No pictures or decor of any sort, and only one sad little pillow per bed. Burn holes in bedding. No shampoo or conditioner. Worse --...

Booked a room there at $175 a night through Expedia for parents weekend at IU. Yes $175. Found 4 cockroaches in our room. Left right away of course. Shameful! I don't care what the standard of an hotel is, this should never happen

Staff was very nice, but this place is truly disgusting. I couldn't sleep there. Rather than spend the night, we just drove the 4+ hours home. Burn holes in bedding, dirty, outdated, unsafe. I do not recommend this place to anyone, not at any price!!

We decided to attend parents weekend at IU somewhat last minute (after fall semester had already started) so most hotels were full when I made reservations. Booked here with some trepidation because other reviews were not encouraging but otherwise we would have stayed an hour+ away in Indy. So our stay was a pleasant surprise, room was clean and tidy....

This has to be one of the nicest Motel 6's I have stayed in! The exterior was in great shape, grounds were clean, parking close to every room..more of an apartment complex feel. The staff was super helpful, friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate us all ..on the second day of our stay, our air conditioner went completely...

Sleep in your car instead of going to motel 6. Smoke filled rooms rowdy neighbors drinking smoking doing who knows what. Manager behind bullet proof glass a good call. Room so old dirty didn't want to shower. TV and phone at least 30 yrs old. Check for bed bugs.
