Reviewed September 13, 2008

Ugh. For 12 more bucks, go to the Microtel at the other end of town (Ann Arbor). This Motel 6 is a creepy place with next to no amenities... except for the free coffee, which isn't served until 7:00am. There wasn't even a box of tissue, let alone shampoo. Avoid this one.

We had a great experience here. The appeared property has been recently renovated. All of the furnishings were new, and the beds were quite comfortable (the bedspreads even looked brand new )The only complaints I had were that there wasn't a clock radio and there wasn't any shampoo in the shower. Other than that, it was exactly what a Motel 6 should be: clean, comfortable, and no frills.

Stayed: November 2006

This was the only hotel we could find for football weekend. Supposedly a non-smoking room - not! Our worst hotel experience in Ann Arbor, ever. No hot water; gross bed with bad springs; stiff bed covering; little, round toilet seat (no lid), no shampoo, (you get a small bar of soap); cheap thin small towels; no clock; no couch; no hair dryer; smelly air freshener (to mask the cigarette smoke). Motel trash truck at 4AM, right outside: bang-bang-bang!! All this for $89/night! What a rip off.

My husband and I stayed at the Motel 6 for a night and was somewhat pleasantly surprised with our stay, given previous reviews. Granted, staying at a motel 6 is not a luxury experience, but the room was clean, the place was quiet, and in a good location right off I-94. The biggest detractor was that the hotel provided NO amenities, not even soap! Nevertheless, for the price, I'd stay there again.

The lobby was under major construction when we stayed there this weekend, and was basically unusable. You had to use the night entrance, and you were still stepping over broken tiles, etc. Plus, the driveway leading to the place was full of enormous potholes.

The room, however, was perfectly fine. It was non-smoking, yet had an ashtray (turned upside-down with a no-smoking sticker on its bottom), but didn't smell like smoke. The room was clean, much much cleaner than I was expecting after seeing the lobby. There was a cigarette burn on the comforter, but other than that there's not much I can complain about. It was a Motel 6, not the height of luxury, but clean and serviceable.

After reading the other reviews on here, I think maybe it's under new management or something - the room was nothing like the nastiness others have posted about, plus the major renovation to the lobby (and swimming pool area) makes it seem like they're trying to make it nicer. So maybe it deserves a second chance after these bad reviews?

Stayed here for one night while driving from Chicago to Detroit Airport for a flight. The service was fine, but the room was pretty gross. The shower didn't drain and things didn't seem especially clean. All night long cars were coming and going and the door to my neighbor's room kept opening and closing. Not a happy experience.

Ditto to earlier reviewer: stay clear of this place. Scuzzy floors, foul bathroom--MOLD on a pillow, for crying out loud. These people pocket the money and let the place go to ruin. Go anywhere else.
