“Lots of Litter... Where's the Wifi?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2008

Check-in was very prompt and effecient, and the room was functional (as you would expect from Motel 6). There were a couple of unexpected problems I encountered, however.

This hotel advertises Wifi Internet Access, both on their web site and with a banner in front of the hotel, yet no hotspots were even visible from my room, let alone accessible.

I was also surprised with the amount of litter around the property. The litter was scattered all over the place, with some even floating in the pool.

Would I stay here again? Perhaps, but only if it were a bit less expensive, and I was only looking for a bed to sleep on and nothing else.

  • Liked — A comfortable bed and a hot shower.
  • Disliked — Advertised wifi does not seem to exist. Lots of litter on grounds.
