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.

Bathroom is very clean. Tub drains a little slow. Shower has decent water pressure. There are enough towels; 4 bath towels however I am traveling... More

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.

Stay away! Blood on one of the bedspreads! Carpet dirty, old coffee in lobby. The place was generally creepy. There were shady looking people hanging around outside. The lady brought me new sheets and bedspread but I have back problems and can't make a bed. My son threw the bedspread in a corner. Towels were smaller and rough. One of... More

Stayed one night. Desk Clerks both checking in and out were very courteous and helpful. The room was very clean with the exception of the two dead bugs behind the bathroom door. Sounds bad but it isn't that means that their pest control people are doing their job. If I pass through there again I will definitely stay there. Did... More

Management was friendly. I always ask to see the room before paying so I was going in with the mindset that you get what you pay for. Well, I was impressed with the room. It's not a five star hotel but I felt comfortable staying there with my husband and daughter.
