“Do NOT go here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

I am on my way back to Georgia from California and after driving for 17 hours I couldn't take it anymore so I pulled off the highway and went to the closest hotel.. Big Mistake! The room was tiny, the pillow wasn't much thicker than a few sheets of paper, and there wasn't a blanket on the bed. I was too tired to complain so I decided to take a shower and go to sleep, Bigger Mistake! The shower curtain looked as if it had never been cleaned so I pushed it aside with a towel, and as I was showering I looked up and there was a USED DIRTY STAINED wash cloth with huge black hairs on it hanging on the curtain rod! I was so disgusted! When I complained to the guy at the front desk all he could offer me was "I'm sorry" I will NEVER stay at a Relax Inn again!

Not a great place to stay at all! BE WARNED!! Stayed there because it was so late and we were so tired. Next morning we noticed that there were "POOP" smears on the wall and as if someone had urinated on the couch! Disgusting! We went to the front desk and asked for our money back. They refused and we called the police. Even the police officer said that he wouldn't stay in a room like that! So, he made them give us our money back! Yay! Happy ending to this horrible motel stay story.

I initially checked in for one night and then extended to three. Friendly staff, clean room, good TV and microwave. Close to US 40 but not noisy.

Over the years I have spent many days in hotels on business ranging from three to five star and this was best value. No fitness center or restaurant so not relevant (rather than terrible).

The bad reviews scared me but I gave it a shot anyway. The motel is in process of being completely remodeled. The room I got was clean and decent for the price. it is a budget motel but the basics were provided and it was clean and functional. My room had a fridge in it too. The sheets and towels were clean. The fixtures, floor and walls were clean. No holes in walls. No gaps at the door. So it looks to me like the problems mentioned in the previous reviews have been addressed and fixed. I stayed in June 2012.

Room Tip: 3-story motel, elevator available

Everything about this hotel is bad. Dirty? Check. Couples using the adjacent room for "hourly" purposes? Check. Having the opportunity to live in fear that your car will be broken into? Check.

It's bad. Spend an extra $40 and go elsewhere.

I'd been driving for almost 12 hours and it was getting late when I decided to stop for the night. My experience was much better than that of those with the worst reviews, but this Motel6 is not the best one in this chain that I've stayed in.

Check in was smooth and the clerk was cordial. The room was clean but surprisingly different from the rooms in other Motel6's where I've stayed. There was no carpet on the floor, which consisted of wood-veneer flooring; the chair in the room was upholstered in some sort of synthetic, plastic-like material (not fabric); even the bedspread had some kind of plastic-feeling material rather than being fluffy and cushy. My first thought was that maybe the room had been treated for bedbugs and the bedbug-attracting materials removed, but I couldn't find any sign of bedbugs in the mattress creases, where they can be evident. The room and bath were clean, and it was late--so I stayed without considering leaving. I wonder if the stripped-down features of the room might be a first step in revamping these room; this is the first modern budget motel I've seen with wood-veneer flooring and no carpet.

I had driven 600 miles and just wanted a clean bed to sleep a few hours before going on. This was a very bad choice, non-smoking room reeked of smoke and dirty feet, the floor was dirty, the sheets were dirty, the sidewalks were nasty and sticky. I tried to sleep with my clothes and shoes on but so much noise there was no way. Cars would pull in, let someone out, leave then come back in 30 minutes. I gave up after an hour, drove West a block to a Walmart and stayed in the parking lot there, much less noise, felt safer there also. this was Motel 6 on South side of I-40.

Room Tip: Please don't get a room here
