It's clear that the property has made some improvements, fresh paint, and updated rooms. Unfortunately, the room was a little dirty and it smelled very strong of smoke even though it was a non-smoking room. The front office staff was very nice.

We picked this hotel because it was close to the airport and we had a 6:16AM flight and they advertised a shuttle to the airport. To save money we reserved the rental car with plans to return it in the evening before our flight, we thought this would save time as well as money. We arranged for a 4:30 shuttle... More

The room was on the bottom floor as requested it went down hill from there. Sheets were dirty, floor was dirty. We were kept up both nights by loud non English speaking men outside of our door, specifically around 2:00 and 4:00 am. They didn’t seem like people that were staying there while working out of town. When we left... More

I booked this motel last minute. The best prices were through the Motel 6 website. This was my first time at these motels. Normally staying at a hotel, comparing it to this stay wasn't to bad. The room was nice but you can tell it was an older motel that was re-done. None the less, it was still nice. At... More

I've stayed and reviewed this property in the past due to it convenience more than once in the past. Heard they had renovated the rooms but was disappointed over the poorly maintained room and amused by their $124 daily room rates. They say that pictures speak a thousand words.

All I can say is how pleased I am with the accommodations and service I had received at this motel. With the delays at the airport, I had called the motel to let them know I was going to be late so, they held my room. When I got to the motel, the motel agent Wendy, was absolutely kind, was...

This is my second long stay here, and despite it being posted as non-smoking, both times there was a strong smoke smell in the bathroom the first night. Clearly, they need to do a better job of stressing to customers (and staff?) that this is a no-smoking building. Other than that, I have no complaints -- it's clean enough, comfortable... More

Convenient location near airport. It wasn't fancy but for the price it wasn't bad either. It was clean and the staff was helpful. Bed was comfortable. Room had a nice little private deck with fences on the ends for one can feel safe from adjoining rooms. Only drawback was the neighborhood in which the homeless were quite visible.

Stay away. Do NOT book here unless you have absolutely nowhere else to go. I screwed up and booked this and checked in. I was dressed in khakis and felt like I was the most overdressed person in a ½ mile radius. They are remodeling, but there is no way I would have stayed there. I didn't bother to try... More
