“Do not Go Here”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2009

Had to transfer to three room. Door handle feel out in my hand, TV did not wook. These room are really down to the bare. They smell, beds are lumpy and above all a HOOKER approched my husband.
Luckly he said I had all the money and guess what?
She came knocking on my door
Do not go here
No coffee even, nothing but Hookers and bad room that need to be redone.
Hey, I am a painter, they could really ruse my touch

Stayed February 2009, traveled on business

Motel 6 is a motel 6 , always without charm , expensive for the quality and comfort but always the best price in town ( we've tried 4 around and prices were worse...).
Non smoking bedroom but with cold tabacco odor persistant ( I think in the cooler ), simplest deco, and really noisy road in front of. No wifi because it was out of order, no breakfast and usual coffe with vending; BUT this time, an homeless indoor the office, near the coffee machine and not really courtesey... TOO MUCH !!!!!

When we arrived the room smelled terrible and plus there was a cup under our bed indicating housekeeping doesnt clean up very well. I asked for an internet room and paid my $3.20 but the internet never worked. Couldnt get a refund cause the card was scratched off but you have to scratch the card off to get the access code. The day of check out i was rushed so terrible it was ashame. Check out was at 12 noon i was getting bothered at 10:30. And it just wasnt me they were rushing it was other guest. Even a elderly lady had to get on the housekeeping lady because she was so say taking too long to leave and the housekeeping lady wanted to get off at 3pm. Not only that the first day I arrived two housekeepers had a head to toe arguement because a guest went on her cart and took a towel and she really told the guest off and the other housekeeper didnt like the way she handled the situation. Im a black customer and I can honestly say that this was a ghetto hotel if I ever seen one. I travel alot and I always use motel6 because its cheaper for me but i promise you next time i have to go through lake charles ill pay the extra money because this place is too ghetto even for me

When we arrived we asked for a room with double beds. We received a room with one bed. Before we entered the room we saw what looked like blood stains on the walk in front of the door. The room smelled very bad for being a non smoking room. The room had a hole in the wall the size of a quarter. The garbage can had not been cleaned and a smelly liquid was in the bottom of it. The bathroom had mold growing on the walls. Gum was stuck on the carpeting in plain sight. The television had a sticky substance on top of it. If it had not been so late we would of drove on. We took pictures of the problems we have mentioned. This location is the worst Motel 6 that we have ever stayed and have used Motel 6 well over a hundred times in the last 18 years.

I really wish I would have read the 'reviews' before booking this motel. We went for an overnight gambling trip on a Saturday night, so didn't want to spend alot out on Motel... but "live and learn".. next time I'll be more than happy to spend $ 30.00 - $ 40.00 more for a better situation.

Our room (non-smoking) definitely smelled of smoke. There was no toilet paper holder in our bathroom (toilet tissue piled on back of toilet)...One of the main lights in the room didn't work and the faceplate on the phone was missing.. But that's not the biggie. The biggie is having to call 'security' because people are banging on our door at 2:30 a.m. (twice)...This is a 'shady looking area'.... will never stay here again!

Was woke up early by cleaning man emptying garbage cans outside our door. Had some sort of rolling cart that needed some WD-40....very loud and woke us up early than we wanted!

When we checked out the next morning, there were 2 police cars at the front lobby, apparantly due to some 'disturbance' and come to find out... another party had complained of someone knocking on their door early that night around 9:00 p.m. Did NOT feel SAFE at all!

Needless to say... didn't get much sleep! Trust me, pay an extra $ 30.00 and stay somewhere 'safer' and 'nicer'....

we stayed at motel 6 2 years ago. have always stayed at this motel chain in different cities. but this place was unclean, bad service, etc..
have not stayed at a motel 6 since that time. unfair to rate all in chain by just one, but left us unhappy.
they were cheap, but you definately get what you pay for.

We booked late for memorial day weekend so we didn't have many choices. Got in late, 2am, and check-in was out doors and mosquitos were feasting. The room smelled of something like cigarette smoke , we weren't sure, not good. One queen bed though we had reserved 2 beds.
The bathroom had 1 towel for 2 people, the rug was a living organism, and the bathroom tile was ripped up on the edges. The air conditioner sounded like a 75 corvair engine. The upside is that we got our money back.
Maybe, you get what you pay for, but hotels shouldn't be an afront to the senses.
