The Motel 6 experience is not for everyone. Don't expect down blankets or designer comforters or even a full sized tub. These hotels are designed for people who are traveling from A to B and need a clean place to stay for the night. If I were traveling with my girlfriend, I would probably splurge for something nicer. Having said that, this was one of the better "in the middle of nowhere" motels that I have stayed in.
The owner of the Avoca Motel 6 was at the front desk when I checked in. He was friendly, polite and efficient.
My room, which was on the 2nd floor, looked relatively clean. The carpet felt a bit gritty. (Bring flip-flops.) The TV which was on the small side had a decent selection of channels. I was able to hear doors being opened and closed, but it was not frequent enough to be annoying. The parking lot seemed pretty full by 10pm, but the motel did not feel crowded or noisy. The motel has a pool which I did not use. It did seem, that the two families with young kids who were using it, seemed to be happy with the facility.
I did not see very much in Avoca beside the Motel 6, a gas station/Subway, and a family owned truck stop. I was told that the food there was good, but did not try it myself. The restaurant does not take credit cards.
There is ample parking for cars in the "front" of the motel and a relatively large lot in the back for large trucks and those traveling with trailers.
This particular Motel 6 does not give AAA discounts, so it is not on the TripTik website.
