“No frills, just a clean bed for the money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2010

I have stayed at this motel several times on my visits to Jonesboro, AR and usually never had a problem with it. My main reason for choosing this establishment was I normally just look for a warm and comfortable bed at a low price in a good and convenient location on my trips to Jonesboro and Motel 6 fits the need. My last visit there was Jan 28th- Jan 31st of 2010 and things went well as could be expected. The biggest drawback and the reason I sought a different hotel for my next visit to Jonesboro is that Motel 6 claims that they have free internet included in the room price but that is false. You have to buy an internet access card at the desk for around $3.00 seperate from the room price that is only good for 24 hours so if you are staying multiple days you will have to buy one for each day that you stay there. When you add the price of that card to the room rate you end up paying around $40 dollars per day and you can find other hotels in Jonesboro for the same kind of money that have better amenities such as free breakfast, <Motel6 ONLY offers coffee in the mornings>, better furnishings, and better TV service. The issue with the internet service being an extra charge only recently became a problem as my last visit to Motel 6 was the first time I had a laptop with me. In the past I did not travel with one so I was unaware of their policy on internet service. All I was told when I called to make the reservation was that the internet service was "included in the room rate" and there were no extra charges affiliated with it.
As for the service and the room other than what I mentioned above, the staff do a very good job of seeing to it your concerns are addressed. The beds are comfortable and the linens are changed daily upon request but the pillows are all outdated and should be replaced as the current ones are very lumpy and almost no support to them.
I would probably be willing to stay at Motel 6 again but only if I did not plan on using the internet services and was just looking for a cheap room while I am in town.

For $30, this place is hard to beat. If you're the sort of person that goes out of your way to find fault, this may not be the motel for you. However, if you are comfortable with a room that's clean and fairly quiet the Motel 6 in Jonesboro, AR will do nicely. The staff is friendly and the location is very good.

I stayed here while passing through Jonesboro on the way to Nashville. The rate was good. The room and bathroom were rather small. The pool was closed down, which was disappointing because one reason we chose the hotel is that we saw it had an outdoor pool. The motel has a very good location on a main highway of Jonesboro, close to many shops and restaurants although there is not a lot to do in Jonesboro.

  • Liked — proximity to restaurants, shopping.
  • Disliked — Pool was closed down.
