The room was clean, which is a plus, but it was also very humid. Maybe it's the way the area is but when I got into bed, the sheets felt damp. I also hung a shirt to dry, and it never did after a full day. The toilet had a leaky valve too. I had to pull the top cover... More

The room itself, in appearance, was like a cheap, low-buget scandanavian indy film remake of A Clockwork Orange, except less entertaining and a lot filthier. Some ikea furniture scattered around kind of seems like a good effort, but if the towels have dirt and other people's hair on them it sort of destroyes any good intentions one could possibly make....

I've stayed at this location a few times while passing through, and it seems to get worse each time. My most recent stay, being just a few days ago, proved to be the most disappointing of all. The rooms are advertised as being 'modern' or 'updated'- though the only noticeable 'update' is a coat of paint & thinner sheets. I... More

We stayed there this past Sat night The place was clean although it smelled a little musty. There were no amenities and the towels could have been used for sand paper. The check in was prompt and they had coffee in the lobby the next morning for my wife so all was well. Not a place I really want to... More

On March 1, 2014 we stayed in this motel on the 3rd floor. It was the cheapest hotel that we could find and decided to make due because it was only for one night. I noticed some questionable "ladies" hanging around. The room was not properly cleaned, there was an empty panty hose package lying on the floor next to... More

This was hands down the best Motel 6 I've ever stayed at (and I've stayed at many). When I went to book a room there were no one bedrooms left, so I was given a two bedroom at no additional charge, which came with a comfortable little sitting area. The room looks like it was just renovated - modern decor... More

Good place to stay without having to pay extra for your pets. The place looks a bit dated from the outside and they are in the process of renovating. Our room was nice - next gen with wood floors and updated furnishings and bedding so we were pleasantly surprised. No microwave or fridge and you have to pay $4.95 for... More

As for the rooms, we have stayed in a double and a king. Double cost more but at least you get a chair and a bigger room. The king is a tiny room with a table and no chair, This motel offers WiFi if you pay for it $3.17 a day. No fridge or micro in room. You have to... More

Best value in the area especially if you are looking for pet friendly without having to pay a deposit. Clean, spacious room in a quiet area. It's obviously not the Hilton but it's an affordable, pleasant place to stay if you are traveling. If you are super picky and are expecting a room with high design you won't find it... More

This was the worst motel I've ever stayed in, and a low price is no excuse for skimping on the very basics. The room was supposed to be non-smoking, but smelled awful, clearly having been smoked in. The tub had permanent black stains across the bottom. Housekeeping consisted of exchanging our 4 used towels for 2 clean ones - no... More
