Tried this Motel 6 a second time in order to give it a chance to redeem itself. It did not. Perfect grounds and woods to short walk a dog.
Got in line at the desk and when I tried to check in was told I was in a cash only line.....would I mind waiting? I said no. Enrique was a real help and said we could do all the paper work and then swipe the card at the next register. Meanwhile, at 4:30pm , there were no non-smoking rooms available and the wait was 20-30 minutes with two other guest already a head of me. I asked about smoking rooms and was given one. It was hot and the dog was in the car.
Mean while, another guy had budged in line and was being helped by an attendant as they sorted out a problem. So, I waited longer and the line behind me grew to 6 people. Finally, got the card swiped and I thought Enrique was a great employee making the best of a bad situation. The room was on the third floor though I had asked for a bottom floor. It was ok, lots of burn marks, but a nice view.
Not a great motel for finding a place to eat. One place down the street, Hail Marys, and it was crowded. The bar and the dining room are separate so that would be nice for families. Not real cheap, beer was on the warmer side, but a nice .99 happy hour appetizer selection. Try the Rippers!
The parking lot was totally full back at the motel so parked beside a marked marking spot and hoped for the best. There is a pool.
Ethan and I love Motel 6, but doubt we will stay at this one again. Go to the one on Broadway or on Scottsdale Rd.
