We weren't expecting much it is a Motel 6 but it was very clean, the staff was very friendly and the rooms are up to date overall it was a great place to stay for only 50 dollars a night and the internet is free if you have an AARP card.

This was my third stay within two months: The location is so convention for business but I should have learned my lesson from the previous two stays: No internet connection on any of the stays (I had to go across the street to McDonald's...again. Underneath the desk was a collection of bread crumbs/left over crackers and a dead fly (yes,...

We had made a reservation on line. When we arrived to the hotel that evening we were greeted by some not so nice desk workers. After we got checked in and given the room keys we pulled around to the side where they said to enter and the keys were not activated. Had to walk around the building back to...

This was the worst experience ever. My wife went down to get chance for laundry and was told that she didn't have any more. Had to dry clothes two times. My daughter's favorite blanket was stolen, a pair of socks were stolen. Told not my problem. Way over priced. Sign says $59.99 plus $10.00. Was charged $69.99 plus $10.00. Got...

The price is right and the room is clean water is hot and the staff is friendly. The only draw back was having to take a smoking room. The smell is very strong on the third floor. I made it by leaving the window open and the fan on. If saving money and smoking is your thing then you will...

We just stopped here overnight while passing through town. Beds were kind of hard and blankets left much to be desired, but the room was clean and it had the basics for a restful night. The staff was quick and efficient, and the price was the cheapest around. Definitely a great deal for a simple night stay.

For the great price I expected a run down dive in a sketchy neighborhood. What I got was a wonderful place to lay my weary head. I liked the laminate flooring throughout as carpeting can be so dusty and unsanitary. The bed was a bit hard but not really uncomfortable. Though close to the interstate and train tracks I did...

Room was very clean and comfortable with very friendly and helpful staff! And of course, pet friendly. Mexican Restaurant right next door, would definitely stay here again when passing through! Also easy to get to, right off I29 close to Walmart.

The Good: The room was clean and the staff was friendly. There was plenty of clean towels. The motel was located right off the freeway. Pets stay for free. The Bad: The room had some type of fake hardwood stick down flooring that was beginning to buckle in places. Basic cable plus 2 HBO channels. The internet is an extra...

Decently priced, a little haggard on the outside but the inside is clean, the service was really helpful and friendly. Even though it was right next to the highway exit I didn't hear any of the cars and trucks zooming by. The rooms were refurbished, although the beds were a little stiff i enjoyed my stay and if i return...
