“Property ok, clientele not ok”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

I drive between my homes in Florida and New England once a year, and I decided to stay here because it is about 2/3 of the way to my home in Vermont and it was the only property in the area that wasn't going to charge me an arm and a leg for my cat. In fact, they didn't charge me anything. It's a typical Motel 6 - the rooms are small and spare but clean. And the staff is perfectly lovely. I would stay here again except there are too many sketchy characters loitering around the property and coming and going at all hours. Despite the time and effort involved, I unloaded and reloaded my car of anything remotely valuable. The domestic disturbance in the next room (complete with banging on the walls, yelling and door slamming) at 5:30am was a lovely bonus given that I am a light sleeper and insomniac and had a real problem getting back to sleep. Given that the clientele is nothing that the property management can do anything about, I will probably take a pass next year.

First let me tell you there is no continental breakfast. Secondly wireless fidelity Is not free at any motel 6. on our first day the Laurel Police were arresting someone. They have a pool that goes to 5 feet deep. It is close to the Baltimore Washington expressway. There are literally tons of restauraunts near here. Our room was a little musty but that did not bother me. What did bother me was the hot water in the shower. The beds were very comfortable.

Room Tip: Pick a room close to the pool.

Because it's a Motel 6, I don't expect much. Here are my chief complaints:

(1) The hotels in that area ALL charge extra for microwaves & refrigerators; I was completely shocked! Motel 6 charges $3 PER DAY.

(2) There is an extra charge for using their WIFI! I think that's around $3 PER DAY also.

(3) They have a "room service" menu; however, the prices are higher than the deficit! They have ONE coffee carafe in the lobby during the earlier morning hours. The coffee's pretty good. Luckily, it's right across the street from the grocery store & there's plenty of restaurants along the block.

(4) The staff is friendly but, make sure your given the proper rates AND ALL DISCOUNTS before you leave the lobby, heading anywhere! It'll save you a headache and budget crisis.

All in all, if Motel 6 had a guest rewards program, I'd probably stay there again. However, I have absolutely NO REASON to ever visit Laurel, MD again so... I'm off it!

Motel is located close to great dinning and interstates. Customer service is great!! The rates are cheaper than most in the area, but so is the quality of the rooms and the building! With that said you get what you pay for! Though I must say for $60 a night a pool was a added bonus to make up for the not so attractive room.

You have to take things into context. Motel 6 is not Fairmont, Sheraton, Holiday Inn, etc. They are a low price, barebones accommodation. But they are clean comfortable affordable and located quite conveniently.

This Motel 6 is no exception. As a place to sleep on the way to a destination, you can't beat it. I travelled with a "senior" so one night cost me ~$25! Firm bed, clean sheets, towel and shower. AC worked fine and got a good night is shut eye. Context is everything.

I've no doubt that less than polite folks sometimes work here and that some rooms have crappy WiFi access but I encountered neither on my stay. This was just your normal reasonably priced, clean, no frills (but all necessities) Motel 6.
