This place is beyond help. The rooms, which were "non-smoking" reeked of cigarette smoke. There were burn marks on the bathtub and on both bedspreads. The beds had no support, were ripped,. The rugs were very worn and dirty. Exterior had cobwebs, termites on the stairs, broken cement on the walkways, cigarette butts all over the place. The only thing... More

Next time I will sleep in the car. Sheets ok the bed looked like they had been slept in. Cigarette holes in the sheets... More

These people here are really nice! They make you feel welcome and seam to be glad you are there. Motel needs some work but for the price its clean and comfortable. This is not a Marriott, but that is not what your being charged for.

We took a few days and made a weekend trip to Lexington. We always try to stay with Motel 6 as they allow pets. This location is a little old and needs updating, but it was clean and the staff was great! For the price it was just what we needed!

I have stayed at this Motel 6 previously. The staff was helpful and the room clean. I travel with my dog and had a room convenient to the stairs. I would definitely stay again. The only drawback would be if you wanted wifi you had to pay extra.

Stayed one night bed bugs ate me up. Caught one and went to the front desk and got put out. The most awful place I have ever stayed. Went Back thinking they might have fixed the problem they refused to let me stay . A dirty filthy dump.
