Place is a DIVE!! DO NOT STAY HERE. Building is falling apart the heater/AC is falling off the wall. Beds were uncomfortable cigarette burns in the room.. clearly it used to be a smoking room. Place needs shut down by the health department IMMEDIATELY!!

we called around midnight, from the HOJO down the street, where we had a reservation and wanted to cancel. the man I spoke to on the phone was very accommodating. They didn't charge for pets, and offered the AARP discount because my grandmother was with us. We ended up saving $ by staying here, and although the rooms weren't as... More

Scary place! NOISY! Questionable people around here. Room smelled like pot anytime we turned on the air, heat or went in the bathroom. Dog friendly, and we wouldnt have stayed if We hadnt had her with us.

This was an asap booking due to a death in the family. It's not a 5-star hotel, but It was one of the most reasonably-priced places south of Seattle with easy access to I-5. The room was clean, staff friendly, and we particularly liked the laminated wood floors, as opposed to carpet you're not sure if it's safe to walk... More

we came late and made a wrong decision to select the Motel 6! However, it happens, the Motel is not very well maintained, the sound insulation is like zero, you hear what your neighbor is doing or saying, same to those above. The bathroom had hair on the floor from those guests before us and so the bedroom too. Hair... More

It was reasonably close to the highway to get on. The room looked good. I noticed that they let the homeless stay here, or so it looked that way. A lot of doors opening and closing and vehicles coming and going thru out the night. Didn't feel too comfortable about this.

The motel was pretty crappy. You could tell people were dealing drugs; for the most part not a good part of town. The room I stayed in was not cleaned; urine stains on the bottom part of the toilet, I had to buy some cleaning wipes to clean it up. I stayed for over a week, and the first day... More
