This Motel 6 has been recently updated to look hip and modern. The cute decorating doesn't disguise the fact that it's utilitarian and affordable for a reason. I was surprised by how worn everything felt already. It is located right off of I5 and offers a shuttle to the airport during specific hours. In fact, we needed to leave earlier... More

Hotel is clean and remodeled but staff is unfriendly and not professional. You get the feeling like you are not wanted and certainly not a valued guest. The motel is overpriced for what you get, and while I was there a few days I saw shady characters all around, a guy sleeping in his car in the parking lot, a... More

Due to a last minute flight change we had to find somewhere to stay right away and ended up here. It's squeaky clean with a comfortable bed but they have sprayed some horrible room spray all through the model and it's almost unbearable it's that strong. Hoping I can sleep tonight!

Seattle SEA-TAC Airport South Motel 6, Non-Smoking Room Motel 6 properties vary significantly in quality. In my experience, this location is one of the poorer quality Motel 6 properties we have stayed in over the years. -- Safety issues: * Hot and cold water pipes are reversed in the shower creating possible scalding issues: It appears that the bathroom was...

The hotel is situated about 5 kms from the international airport. By car it is a 10 minutes drive. It is ideal for the last night before your flight, although there is even a hotel nearer to the airport. The room is clean and very basic, two good beds and a bathroom and for small children a pool. The Wi-Fi... More

Was not impressed with this location. I have often stayed at Motel 6's over the years---usually a cheap, clean option. Not this time! Their online advertised price was $86 per night (which IMHO is pretty steep for a Motel 6 to begin with). However, I stayed there the weekend of SeaFair---stated price, when calling, for a single room was $149.95... More

Omg.... Checked into the room with strange people lurking around. I thought with best hopes that maybe they were secretly filming a zombie movie. But then I realized it was just people most likely high on heroin bumping into the walls cuz they couldn't find their rooms. The prostitutes outside my window yelling at me their prices were at least... More

This had to be the worst experience ever. Beds were thin and felt as if they were filled with rocks. Pillows were practically flat. No amenities whatsoever...hair dryer, coffee maker, air. Faucets for sink and shower were a trick. Had to call desk to get a clue on operation, had to have my son pull the knob out to turn... More
