We stayed at this location as a late overnight on the way back from Chicago. The bid sites did not show anything interesting, so we chose this hotel based on price. Most Motel 6 locations are not that bad for the money. You arrive late, sleep, and out early the next morning. They are not destination motels by any means. This location was disgusting. I made a reservation on my smartphone from the road, so we would secure a non smoking room with 2 beds, non smoking, micro/fridge and requested a no pet room. I booked a room with a micro/fridge, thinking this would be a better room, as this is a trend with this brand. The clerk could not read the reservation properly as she said it was for 1 person & none of the notes I added were in her view. We were not provided a micro/fridge or non pet room as outlined in the reservation. OK, we got the 2 beds and forget the micro/fridge as it was late, wanted to get to sleep and up early next day to continue home. Motel 6 should be ashamed of having the property under their brand, and will be once they look into my complaint. The room had a fly which husband had to swat with one of the few clean towels. You could see marks on the wall where it looks like other customer have had this problem. Lots of flies in the midwest. The carpet was dirty with pet stains in places. The room smelled, so have a feeling this first floor room was a pet room. The soap was some generic Indian brand and not the typical Motel 6 branded soap. I bring my own, so theirs went in the trash. The bath towel I used looked like one of their own beige worn out towels. Complete with a hole. Not a hotel stock towel. The air would stop in the middle of night. Husband had to clean the vent and we still had to switch it to vent and then back to cool so it would work. We did this several times during the night. Never again at this location. A few exits down, we saw a Motel 6 with interior corridors that looked better. The good reviews for this location must be from friends or owners, because this motel is a fleabag. It is one of those where the foreign owners live there and clean the rooms themselves. I hear Columbus is a nice town, but had not interest to explore after not getting a good night's sleep and having to get on the road home.
