Needing a night's rest, I checked into this Motel 6, thinking that the boorish crowd wasn't present. Wrong! As I drove into the back parking lot where my upstairs room was, I noticed some men speaking Spanish, going back and forth from their downstairs room to their pickup truck - getting, shall we say, "party supplies." Not what you would call couth, or even respectable folks. Only after their own interests, based upon observation. I wisely parked away from this group and kept my distance from them.
Upon entering and settling into my room, I noticed that this room had a connecting room door. No biggie, right? Wrong! The people next door to me were talking loudly in Spanish and not, shall we say, interested in sleeping. After calling the front desk twice, they finally relented and stopped their, ahem, activity. Dunno if police were called, not interested in observing drama, just sleep. . . A connecting room door allowed the sound from their adjoining room to interfere with my sleep. Be aware and ask for a standard nonconnecting room if possible.
The room: remodeled standard Motel 6. Wood style flooring and new cubicle style shower stall. Flat screen television with typical Motel 6 channel lineup, including ESPN and HBO. The shower cubicle had a leak from the water ring array by the shower head, which allowed water to puddle on the bathroom floor. A definite safety hazard for a slip and fall. I took two towels to wipe up the excess spilled water. On the level upstairs walkway corridor leading to my room, part of the patterned concrete chipped away as I walked on it, not inspiring confidence in this traveler. I understand there is seasonal snow and ice at this location which can weaken such structures, but to see it just chipped away by simply walking on the surface and having it fail - even though it was a small piece - is unnerving. Just a couple of items to be aware of if you stay here.
Safety: did I feel safe in my room? Yes. Outside my room? Not always. I did avoid conversation and kept distance from other occupants while coming to my room and leaving, and was cautious in this way. You should be too, IMHO.
