Stayed here for a week - (made reservations from elsewhere for the week, and was told after arrival NO REFUNDS). First room they showed me smelled bad- and I complained to the front desk, who (promptly) moved me to a better room down another hall. Bed was adequate but not really comfortable, shower temps were good though, lighting ok, noise outside window is next to either a noisy freeway or a gas station where people drive in late at night and lean on their horn just to be irritating to the motel guests.
PRO's - front desk was usually courteous. Though I noted not to everyone- there were two times they were arguing with other travellers about promised room rates that were higher then stated.). lights ok, shower hot, tv worked ok.
CONS: Hookers hanging around the front entrance and inside the spacious lobby and monopolizing the $10 for 10 minutes internet connection (that broke three times while I was there) it's slow also-. No Refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms , (every other motel in town has them), rooms were smelly and you actually have to ASK for a clean one, there was a really rude dude in a wheelchair who regularly blocked the front entrance doors and tried to pick arguments if you asked him to move out of the way. Other Cons: At the freeway entrance three times saw a guy with an empty gas can and a sign claiming he needed money for gas- and was "broke" and "homeless" - on my last night there saw the same guy coming out of a second floor room to the stairs- carrying the gas can with him- he got in a new BMW and drive off with two women! Homeless Con Man!
I would never recommend this Motel 6 to anyone even for 1 night. There is a very decent Comfort Inn on Hotel Terrace Drive and 3 other good motels just a block away or so on the other side of the freeway - which cost very little more and are definitely better!
