Not a nice place to stay. We stayed 3 nights and only got towels the first night. There were 3 of us and only one towel. My son in law went and got more, but they had no wash cloths. They gave us extra hand towels. That night I heard someone calling for help, but couldn't get awake enough to... More

This motel 6 was a dump compared to others. AC didn't work, area was suspect with lots of unsavory characters hanging around, cussing, drinking, etc. Construction on east side of motel woke me up at an obscene time of the morning, was worried about my safety walking from the room to the parking lot. My advice is keep on driving!

This Motel 6 is barely worthy of the name. The rooms are frequented by weekly renters that party, argue, use drugs, litter, and walk their dogs. I'd be afraid to get in the pool, and certainly wouldn't walk barefoot anywhere around here, not even in the room. As others noted, there are broken down cars in the back, and the... More

PERHAPS WORST HOTEL STAY IN ENTIRE U.S. IN 60 YEARS OF TRAVEL. Only upon arrival was I told that the air conditioning had been out for several days, I was also told that the temperature was 100 degrees and that there were no fans available. Internet was also out as well as the credit card machine… I requested a substantial... More

Motel 6 is usually a perfectly fine place to sleep in the midst of a road trip. However, this experience was not fine. Our non-smoking room reeked of cigarette smoke and toxic cleaners (and very handily had an available ashtray on the counter by the television, which was bolted down). The pillows were full of smoke smell, making it nearly... More

Motel was full, so luckily I had a reservation. Typical Motel6, small clean room, and fresh smelling, which was a surprise. Sometimes when they allow pets, rooms smell of pets, but this room was fresh smelling. Room had 2 beds, so practically wall to wall beds. For multiple guests someone has to crawl over the other person, as beds are... More

In 2010 I stayed at Motel 6 property on S. Virginia. From what I remember it was better than this property. I will stay at the property on S. Virginia when I come to Reno the next time. This property is okay but I have stayed in many Motel 6 over the years and this is just a plain room.... More

When on the road, all I need is a bed, a shower and a place for my dog. This place had all three. Motel 6 is not a high class motel, and they don't pretend to be. This place was adequate. Nothing fancy, just adequate.

We ordered thru Expedia which has always backed us and been excellent. We reserved this space as the room had a refrigerator and microwave. My wife called the day prior to inquire about a coffee maker and they said no. So we took one. Upon our arrival they did not have our larger room cleaned yet and gave us another.... More

There is no reason you can't find a better motel at a similar price. Even another Motel 6. This was the worst low-cost motel experience I have ever had. Amenities are non-existant. Ice is a good walk away from most rooms. Pool is a joke.
