Motel 6 Hartford-Wethersfield
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Wethersfield
Reviewed December 12, 2013

My wife and I had a 6 week vacation driving through 12 US states in Oct and Nov this year. Being a Motel 6, we more or less knew what to expect - a basic, unpretentious, roof-over-the-head place to sleep. And I am glad to say this Motel 6 met those expectations completely and more.

After many accommodation establishments along the way including other Motel 6s, I can speak with some authority that not all Motel 6s are the same. We presume that they are, simply because they belong to the said chain.

However our experience is that they differ greatly. Admittedly they are all meant to be simple, back-to-basic accommodation and nothing more. But the experience changes dramatically when a guest is welcomed by smiles, or if the building is well cleaned or newer, or simply where it is located near a busy highway or otherwise.

This Motel 6 is a good one. It is great place to stay and we will not hesitate to come back again. We had a quiet room facing the rear and away from the main road, and Walmart and diners are only a short walk away.

I am giving this Motel 6 a 4-rating, not as any suggestion of motel star-classification, but as a personal satisfaction and 'expectation-met' rating. A thumbs up!

This was my first stay at a Motel 6, but will not be my last. If they are all like this, they beat other economy motels (specifically Econolodge and Super 8) hands down.
The small sign made it tough to spot, as it isn't one of the more visible sites. But that's a good thing.
Friendly staff, newly renovated rooms (with no sign of the "deferred maintenance I seem to run into at economy motels so often) and a quiet night's rest. Who can ask for more in this price range?
There seem to be plenty of restaurants and a LOT of shopping areas nearby. I had a wonderful meal at DeNovelli's Family Restaurant - right turn and a short jaunt up the road.
The only criticism I can offer is that the parking isn't particularly convenient. Pack light.

Room Tip: Very few rooms have "out front" parking so, if this is important to you, ask when booking.

I'm not usually a big fan of Motel 6's, but on this particular stormy night, this particular Motel 6 probably saved our lives. We were caught in a horrible storm on Rt. 91 with accidents clogging the road ahead, conditions more treacherous and icy by the minute, and we had to pull off without a clue where we were. We pulled into the Motel 6 right off the highway, and there was an angel behind the desk to help us out, by the name of Johnny. Not only did he give us a room at a better rate than I ever could have expected on such short notice, taking pity on our situation, but he let us leave our luggage-filled car right in front of the office so he could keep an eye on it, and he told us about the amazing sushi place that was in the plaza next door, Sushi Ginza, where we spent a relaxing and delicious evening grateful to be safe and warm. Our room was certainly no-frills, but fine under the circumstances, and clean enough, aside from a cigarette hole in the bedspread. Bring your own amenities as all they have is a little soap; no coffee maker in room either. TV reception was OK (HBO included) and wifi worked well, although you MAY have to pay $3 for it. The shower was terrific! Brand new shower head, good water pressure! The location is a little noisy, but this place is just an amazing value, and perfectly located for travelers. We waited out the storm in comfort and got back on the road when the way was clear! Thank you, and we'll be back in the future!

Very recently stayed here n think its so/so!! I love the location but I question if the bed was changed n found 2 hairs on the towel! Its cheap so u cant expect much but still!! Ive stayed here a few times n this is the only unpositive expirience Ive had but that doesnt excuse the obvious lack of housekeeping this time around.

Staff is great, location is great. People get mad about police presents at the property but after talking with the Manger he explains its preventive security and protection. I love it there.

Room Tip: Great place, Wi-fi needs some help but great place!!!!!!
