“Good enough, no fear”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

As a regular to this chain, as well as those in this price-range when on long runs and just need a place to stop for a night, this one was average and fine for $39. Nothing to worry about. It was a little old, first room's TV channels didn't work, but they moved me to another room and it was fine. Checked closely for bugs, did not see a problem, and not bites next morning.

Water pressure was just this side of acceptable (appeared it might not be enough, but had enough pressure that I couldn't complain, could've been better though).

I did have to wipe the toilet seat down, it was obvious the maid did not lift the lid when cleaning, but that was the worst of it, so not a big deal. More than fine for the night.

I got in late and had a early flight, so I only needed a place for 5 hours. Was given a non-smoking room. I did not expect much for 39 bucks but a pup tent would have been better. For a non-smoking room, it smelled like a bar. The carpet was so dirty, I wouldn't walk on it without shoes. The bed sheets were so thin, you could read thru them. The pillow cases had cigarette burns and the bed spread was filthy. All I can say positive about this place was, the heat worked. I refused to shower there and slept in my clothes. Trust me, unless you want to share DNA with every truck driver in the state, don't stay there.

service: clerks are cheerful and politeness
room: clean and quiet
bathroom: clean
bed: not quite comfortable but clean (probably the mattress)
Overall: good place to stay over night and save some bucks.

After checking in the room we went to had no internet and cell phone reception so we changed rooms,having the room for 3 nights we had no hot water for 2 out of 3 nights, the bathroom door didn't close the room was musty and the air conditioning barely worked, the pool was closed it was 86 outside, the TV was all snow the beds were disgusting,bugs,and the best of all the second day I was there I received a call saying that I only had the room for 1 night and I left things in the room and it was going to be removed. I will not stay at a Motel 6 again and the corporation should really look into this disgusting place.

Room Tip: Don't stay here at all !!!

The night person checked us in at 1am tired after a long drive. He knew they had no hot water for two weeks, ice machines broke, and pool had been down for weeks. The manager lied and said all this information is online. She lied, it's not.

A friend and I were looking for a reasonably priced hotel and thought we'd found it after reading the reviews here. We were thoroughly disappointed. We were in a non-smoking room with an adjoining room (which was occupied by a young couple). I'm assuming since there were adjoining rooms, that this room was also a non-smoking room. The young couple did not hide the fact that they were smoking in the room, and the smoke entered our room all night from under the door. The bedspread had cigarette burn holes in it, the curtain backs were peeling off and you could see daylight through them, and the bed had the absolute worst mattress I've ever slept on. I could feel the springs, and every time I rolled over I was afraid one would pop out like in the cartoons on TV. If at all possible, avoid this one!

Room Tip: If you want a good room, choose another hotel.
