On September 6th, I went to Dale IN, to visit my friends that I haven't seen in years. He didn't have any room for me to sleep at his house so I had to book a motel 6. When I came to my room, I found many issues with the room like stains and long hairs on the sheets. There was a dead bug on the floor. The bathrooms weren't cleaned when I got in the room.

My experience with this Motel 6 was I had to call a phone to get service. There were no cars on the parking lot. The elevator sound like it was about to break down. The linen in the rooms was dirty we had to ask for more sheets. The sheets that they gave me were not clean. The towels that they gave us had dirt on them like they needed to be washed. It was a hole in the wall. Bugs was in one of the rooms. The toilet seat need replacement. It was so damaged it could cut your butt. The carpet in the hallway is filthy. The sinks in the room stopped up. The refrigerator would not close. The shower head was damaged and appeared hanging off wall. The bathrooms were not cleaned. So, I sanitized the bathroom with my wipes. The pool was not cleaned. The ice machine was broke. My grandson said granny you should have checked the reviews. Please do not stay here. This Motel should be closed down today.

Paid for room with jetted tub and it didn't work. We was going outside so we let them know and they insisted it worked and we was pushing wrong button. Once we got back to room tried every switch in bathroom and it didn't work started to call down and realized the phone didn't work in the !Dan time also realized microwave didn't work and refrigerator barely got cold after two hours we was finally moved to another room where tub worked and refrigerator but no microwave. We dealt with this room. All though the beds was hard as crap. When trying to talk to the manager she seemed to get upset with me cause I couldn't understand her. I will never choose the hotel again. And in reading all reviews I noticed that everybody seems to get the same response so do you really read the things. If so maybe with all that money you make from guest of holiday world you should fix your problems.

I used to think of the Motel 6 as the reliable cheap option closest to Holiday World. My last stay was in 2019, and I walked away satisfied. However, things have definitely gone downhill since then. My visit last week involved 3 room changes due to various issues right after check in. No A/C, housekeeping problems, etc. Based on my sample size of 4 rooms, it seems a staple of every room at the property now is long black hairs mixed into the bedding. Including in the sheets. Some beds were worse than others, including one where the bedspread itself was covered in stains so large that they could be seen from the door. The cleanliness issues extended elsewhere. The floor was so filthy that it nearly instantly turned my socks black. I made it a little better by using one of the bath towels as a mop, which in turn stained the whole towel black. There was hair in the shower and dead bugs all over every surface not directly at eye level (tops of furniture and the TV stand). It seemed that each time I went to the lobby I heard other guests complaining of similar issues. The property is no longer cared for and should be avoided if possible.

We stopped staying in Motel 6s because the quality went down below disgusting. But due to the outrageous prices of lodging in the Santa Claus, IN area we decided to stay here. Wow, what a nice change. This is the best and nicest Motel 6 we have ever been in. Spacious room and bathroom. Highly recommend.

I had an issue with the people that were above me at 3:15am. So. I got my key and shoes and walked to the front desk. Since nobody was at the deak I had to call 0 on the phone. Told the lady that the people above me were being loud, throwing things. Yelling running across the room. The lady said that she would give them a call about the disturbance It calmed down for 10 minutes then back at being loud. So an hour later I got fed up again. Went to the desk and called the lady again. Told her that it has been an hour and the people have not shut up. Told her that I was pissed and said that this was unacceptable. Another hour and I finally fell asleep. When I checked out, I told the lady that my visit was horrible. She did not even apologize to me or any thing. Horrible service. I almost went upstairs and knocked on their door myself. After a day of walking g around for hours all that I wanted was to rest. But that did not happen. I will NEVER book a room here again!!

We stayed 1 night on the way to our family vacation so we could be closer to our destination the next morning. The front desk/lobby area was exactly what I expected. Once we got to the room i immediately wanted to leave. It had A strong pinesol smell and ants all over the table. The room had been cleaned but you could tell it was just dirty. It was not properly cleaned. One of my kids had Socks on and they were black from walking around on the floor. The beds were extremely uncomfortable. The motel was mostly empty besides a trucker or 2 and maybe 6 other sketchy looking patrons, one sat outside of our room and spoke loudly on the phone most of the night. I will say this was the cheapest motel in the area and I knew that going in, my husband talked me into this since it was a “name brand motel” he expected them to have some sort of standards and it was a quick overnight in at night and immediately out in the morning but even he says now he will start listening to me and not be so cheap lol. For another $30-$50 10 miles down the road we could have gotten much better accommodations. If you are looking for somewhere super cheap to stay over night that isn’t extremely bad this might be alright but I will never stay here again. I spent my entire 10 hour stay wishing it was over.

Coming from Virginia, and after dodging trucks and rain in WV, was very tired, so we stopped in the middle of nowhere at Dale IN. Never been in a Motel 6 before, but here we are. The check in was very polite and courteous. The real reasonable price of the room made me wonder. The room was spartan, 2 flat back chairs, a well made bed, small table, refrigerator, micro wave and TV. What really caught my eye was the cleanliness of the place - - it sparkle clean. The room was cool I and made an attempt to get the heat on, it still was too cool, so I asked the lady at the desk what to do. She advised me of he proper way to fix the heat. She did stop by later to see if we were OK.. I will say, it was not the most comfortable room I have ever had, but if you are tired and want a reasonable place to sleep, this is it. The morning coffee was very good and got me off to a great start on our trip to NE.

Inside the hotel looks poor. Whenever we went to the front desk no one was ever there. No breakfast was an inconvenience. The fridge in our room froze our drinks we brought. It was just an overall bad experience.
