“Mildew and backed-up toilet. Avoid.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2007

We are staying in pet-friendly hotels/motels because of our dog on the cross-country road trip we're on. So we're familiar with Motel 6. However, avoid this one.

Our room smelled quite strongly of mildew - the carpet was kind of spongy. Eeewww. Switched rooms, and the mildew smel wasn't so bad. But the toilet was blocked up! Double eewww. No maintenance man - so my husband borrowed a plunger from the front desk and did the job himself. And even then, the toile did not work well.

We left first thing in the morning, b/c the mildew smell was starting to give us a headache. Also, there was a group of young, shirtless men, smoking cigarettes and drinking beer, around the corner staying in one-two rooms. It looked as if they lived there.

They started wolf-whistling me, but when they saw I was walking my dog - who is part Rottweiler, part Lab - they shut up pretty quick. I guess they weren't as dumb as they looked.

They leave a very bright light on for you, to keep you awake.
We stayed on the second floor during renovatons. The stairway was removed to our landing so we had to navigate through to construction zone to get to our room. The police raided the room next to ours at 3:30 in the morning. We were locked out of our room each night so that we had to redo our reservation each time. We were made to feel very unwelcome here from the time we checked in to when we checked out. Stay somewere else. Stay anywhere else.

We did not expect a great deal from a Motel 6 but we did not even receive the bare minimum. We had previously made reservations for a block of four rooms. We requested none smoking rooms but did not receive them. All four rooms smelled of urine and old smoke smell. The pool was inoperable which sorely disappointed the children in the group. The knob on our bathtub was broken, so we could not take baths. All in all, we were very disappointed in this hotel and would not recommend it.

The Motel 6 in Fayetteville is what I would describe as "bare bones" accomodations. You get two double beds, television (with cable), telephone, desk/dresser combo, and the basic acroutements. Towels are thin. All light fixtures are flourescent, so people who have problems with this type of lighting might want to choose another motel. However, the rooms are always spotlessly clean, and usually pretty quiet. The front desk staff is usually polite, professional and friendly-particularly the gentleman (who appears to be in his 60's) who appears to be manager of the place. I've also had some very friendly service from University of Arkansas students. One time I was allowed to choose my own room, which I really appreciated. Hint: If you can choose a room at the back of the complex, those are much quieter. The back of the complex backs up onto a residential area, and you are shielded from the College Avenue traffic noise.

Location is pretty good, but be aware that College Avenue is pretty congested. If you arrive at rush hour (yes, there is such a thing in Northwest Arkansas) be prepared for looong waits at the traffic lights.
Within 1 mile of Northwest Arkansas Mall and various chain restaurants, (Chili's, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, etc.) There's a KFC right next door, and a strip shopping mall across the street.

Overall, if you need a cheap place to hang your hat for the night, this is a good bargain. Don't look for ammenities, but you will have a clean, safe room.
