My late wife considered staying at Motel 6 as camping out. To me they seem quite luxurious. This particular Motel 6 is apparently newly renovated and extremely clean. The owner has found a good friend who has been running the joint for the last three months and is doing a bang up job. I was going to do a great... More

This is a clean, comfortable, no frills motel with cable TV, free WiFi and friendly staff. It's also pet friendly so don't worry about having to leave your furry companion behind. It's also located in a quiet area so you don't have to worry about your sleep.

Excellent Motel. Quiet,clean, great flatscreen tv and very comfy bed. The manager Dave is a great host was very accommodating and just a nice bloke. Great location just off I 80 at Drums. Was the perfect stopover. Slept like a log. Would recommend.

I'm a big fan of Motel 6. This one was extra excellent! Dave, the manager, is a hard-working, good guy who really came to my rescue. My Saab blew a head gasket with 300 miles to go, and I was in no position to expect a bargain. I was expecting about $65, the usual for a Motel 6 room, when... More

Stayed here on way between Ohio and Maine. Tried to keep costs low for us and in-laws so $61 for the 4 of us was super. Nice clean modernized rooms. Talked with the desk clerk as we were arriving late and he made arrangements. They do lock the hotel up at night for security. We found a great breakfast at... More

This is one of the cleanest motels I've ever stayed in. The manager is very nice and very helpful. There are no frills, but for the money, it beats quite a few higher priced places as far as comfort and service.

We stayed one night at this motel. We chose it simply because it was about halfway on our two-day drive. Our GPS got us to the neighborhood, but we had a little trouble actually getting into the place. There's a Motel 6 sign on a tall pole, but in the darkness it was pretty dim. We missed the actual entrance... More

Clean room and bathroom for a good price. Based on other reviewers I brought my own shampoo so no complaint here. The heating unit in the room is pretty loud but other than that it was a pleasant stay. Would stay again!

We are traveling cross country and needed to stop before it got dark. As usual, I checked Trip Advisor and found this gem! I usually don't trust the very best or very worst reviews but this motel looked pretty good so we decided to give it a try. We are driving a 16' truck with a car in tow so... More
