Yes, the planes fly right over the hotel close enough to see the people inside at times. It is loud outside but I was in the first floor and with the air conditioner on at night it was ok. It is 4 blocks walking distance to Little Italy so I took advantage of great weather after about 700 miles in... More

We stayed here for our last night of our road trip before leaving the States. The receptionist was nice and the rooms were clean. But still... One of the rooms smelled of smoke, but the second one we looked at was ok. We took the third... On the plus side you can walk to little Italy and have dinner there,... More

Stay at this Motel 6 for one night but didn't expect their rooms to look so runned down. I've stayed in a Motel 6 before and the rooms were pretty nice so I was a little thrown off on this Motel. I give them credit for their website pictures of the rooms because they can sell anyone that their rooms... More

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

“This is directly across from the airport with planes flying directly overhead at very low altitudes. Downstairs rooms are a little quieter.”

“Second floor gives you privacy from the parking lot and enables you to have your own private balcony.”

“Just don't stay here unless you're a smoker and don't care about the air you breath in the shower!”

“Trolley runs late night and starts early morning; if you're sensitive to noise, don't stay on the east side next to the tracks. Planes do fly overhead (airport runway is literally across the street) all day; noise is worse upstairs than downstairs.”
