Driving through the area was awful, when we pulled in to the motel we just wished we hadn't made a reservation. Police seem to patrol the place all the time, I see why....
It was really cheap, but you get what you pay for....$43.99 + tax isn't bad, but the rooms definitely are bad...
Walking into the room and the smell hit us, stale smoke (non smoking room) and urine, covered up with cheap air freshener...I went straight to the grocery store nearby and bought tobacco and pet air freshener...it helped a little.
The room was small with old, uncomfortable beds...so bad the springs were coming through.
The bathroom was not the cleanest, it really needs a deep clean, maybe new flooring.
The TV was small and something you find in goodwill or the dumpster. The picture was awful and only had a few channels.
My comforter had pubic hair and blood stains. I took it to the office to get a clean one. The lady at the desk was friendly and helpful, considering.
The WiFi is $2.99 and it was very slow.
It's pet friendly which is good, but I suggest wearing flip flops or slippers, the carpet was filthy!!!!!
The walls are thin, you can hear other people moving around. There is an airport right next door...bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.
I would never return to this motel 6.... The one in West Des Moines is 100 times better and its in a safer area of the city.
The price was the only good thing.
