OK, let's face it. Motel 6 does not have the best reputation among business travelers. But this location is worth a look. Yes, it is an older hotel and there are stains on the carpeting. Amenities are few, but the rooms are clean, beds comfortable, cable/HBO, and several rooms have internet access (additional fee).
I have been coming here since March 2011 and have seen continual improvements. Since the new hotel manager has taken over, the staff is more professional, new pillows have been purchased, maintenance repairs are being made in a timely manner, slowly but surely they are purchasing new towels, housekeeping does a great job. All in all, the new manager is bringing this location up to a better reputation and standard. The next improvement will be new bedspreads. The maintenance personnel is out every morning cleaning up the grounds. The whole 2nd floor has been repainted and they are starting the first floor this week.
Don't like something, just let her know. I had an issue that was reported twice to the front desk (the previous employees). When it wasn't handled, I e-mailed the manager and within 10 minutes the issue was corrected. I had an issue on this stay and it was corrected by the time I returned.
There is a drawback. The floors are paper thin. You can hear the second floor guests walking, taking showers, flushing toilets but that is usually before you go to sleep and after you wake up. A word of warning, until you get used to it, there is a train that blows its whistle about 2am. Now I sleep right through it. It that concerns you, ask for a room on the north side of the building.
It still has a long way to go, but the journey has started. Great work Kristen Russell.
