Would have given this a better rating had I not experienced what I had the last night I stayed there. I went to a convention for the whole day and came back to a clean room. I went to put my ID back in my wallet and noticed my food card, my bank card, and $100 cash was missing (which... More

Part of the motel is under construction, that"s fine. But they insisted on putting us directly on the other side even though there was plenty of rooms in the front. The water was off in the entire motel. They said it would be back on by 7. My husband and I were going out for a while so we figured... More

Room not cleaned completely. Strained of hair in bathroom. Not enought towels. Plugs not working. Stained mattress. Burned holes on bed covers. Carpets not vacuumed at all. The second day of our stay, the cleaning lady came at 6 in the afternoon... This place needs at little TLC and more. Please manager, do something, I'm not the first to complain.

not updated at all. would be best to tear down or upgrade like other MOTEL 6. dirty, burn holes in bedding, stained mattress and boxspring, no clock, hair dryer, coffee pot. will not stay here again. Motel 6 office head should be notified. check in was quick and staff friendly. just needs better cleaning and upgrade.

We were staying in Indianapolis for one night and I was struggling with finding a good deal through other sites because of NCAA basketball. This came up as a viable option at around $50 a night. Found a coupon online, which sweetened the deal so I figured, why not? Well...as my wife quickly reminded me, sometimes you get what you... More

Lots of food options around which is good. Room was the usual Motel 6 types..functional, and just right for sleep and shower, but, I felt the odor from cigarettes... More

Unfriendly! Very unclean! Very unsafe. I have stayed at many Motel 6's across the country and my experience at this establishment will cause me to seriously hesitate choosing this "brand" for future accommodation needs. I had a similar experience at the Davenport, IOWA location.

Those are the only positive things I can say about this motel. STAY AWAY! The carpet was disgustingly dirty and the room reeked of stale smoke. I called the front desk and the woman apologized and said the entire facility was smoke free but was fully booked so she could not offer another room. After driving all day I went... More

The Motel looks like it is closed when you drive up. Needs paint and updating, SOON ! I like what Motel 6 is doing by the remodels. This one has not been done. HOWEVER, it was clean, very clean. Bed was comfortable. Perhaps we lucked out. The staff is super friendly. My advice would be, check your room out before... More
