The motel is close to the I-4/US 98 exit. It is a few minutes from downtown, except probably during the rush hours.

My room was clean, the bed comfortable, the TV worked, air conditioner cooled the room, and I slept well. It's a two story hotel and I didn't have to walk far to get to the room.

Staff were courteous and helpful. The grounds were clean. The fellow motel guests were the usual cross-section of American working-class folk. I had no trouble.

You're not going to get the amenities of a fancy resort but you'll get what you paid for.

Needed a stop for the night and called for a room. Found out that i was not talking to the actual motel, but their rep in some place else. Requested a non-smoking room away from traffic and got everything but.
The room has ash trays and smelled of smoke. It was also on a major thru way. the receptionist was friendly but behind protective glass ... at 9PM. Can you guess the safety of the area.
Motel is located on major road and still uncertain of clientele. Room was noisy and parties were all evening long.
Cheap but not worth the effort. Drive a few more miles to Orlando.

Room Tip: Inner court might be better. It is near a Denny's for breakfast

We stay in Motel 6 locations in USA frequently. Most experiences have been very, very good. (One of our reasons for choosing Motel 6 is their pet policy as we are retired and take our wee chihuahua along when we travel).

This Motel 6 (on the west side of Lakeland) was horrible. Room was very shabby (not dirty, just shabby)........staff wasn't able to help us with our internet concerns (directed me to call customer service and they were RUDE)........it was very obvious that there were prostitutes frequenting the property and we were just disgusted with our stay there.

We came to Lakeland needing temporary affordable housing, and we found it with Motel 6. The room is small but appropriate for my son and I. They are also pet friendly, as they allow our small dog without an extra fee. The only downside is that WiFi internet access is not free, and they charge $3.20 a day.
