We needed an inexpensive place just to sleep while attending a concert in the area, so this Motel 6 fit the bill. Not fancy, but there is a mini fridge and microwave in the room ( we didn't use them). Bed was very comfortable and room was clean (although the window tracks and air conditioner vents could use some attention.).... More

Booked here during film festival. Not sure what we'd find. But all was super clean, comfortable, newly remodeled. It's Motel 6, so don't expect extra frills. You'll get the soap and shampoo, but not the conditioner or little coffee maker. There's a great coffee place just up the road. There is a frig with the room,however. Would recommend to others.

First, they charged us more than what they told us on the phone. Then, they refused to give us the AAA discount we were offered, and finally, the bed sheets were disgustingly dirty. The clerk came up and insisted it was cotton falling apart from old sheets. Well, the cotton must have been grainy and turned black because that's what... More

This property unlike so many Motel 6's is well kept and clean. The cost is very reasonable for the area, so if you are just looking for a cheap clean place to sleep this is your place. They have a pool and hot tub, but no coffee until after 7 a.m., seriously!

Saturday July 30th myself and three friends went to check in to our reservation at the Motel 6 in Traverse City Michigan.  The reservation was made weeks ago over the phone by my sister and a rate of $139 was quoted (the same rate we had found that day on the Motel 6 website).   When we got to the...

We stayed here for one night and loved the location next to a Mexican Restraunt and Dairy Queen. The hotel staff was friendly the room was clean and updated. This hotel is nothing fancy but there is nothing wrong with it for the $$.

We paid a great price, the people were friendly, and it was close to where we wanted to go. The rooms were cute and clean. I was bummed there were no coffee pots in the room, or breakfast, but everything else was great. I don't have any complaints.

We stayed here for a few nights with our dogs and were quite pleased. They gladly put us in a room close to an exit to make it easier for potty runs, which was great! The room was very clean, as was the bathroom. Also, a bonus, vinyl floors....so no worries about accidents with the dogs! The dogs were comfortable... More

I was not expecting much and was pleasantly surprised. it was clean and well maintained. My wife and I are not fond of the room design where the bathroom contains only the toilet and shower, and the sink is separate, outside the bathroom. But that would be the only negative for us. They served a very basic continental breakfast in... More
