“Motel 6 - No more no less”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

When we know that we arrive late evening, and depart the next morning, we book low end motels. So in Farmington, we booked Motel 6 at a very attractive price. I was glad I disregarded some of the terrible reviews. I booked a cheap hotel for a short night - ant got what I expected. The room was clean and simple.

Stayed last night; woke up this morning having been bitten by bedbugs all over. I turned the light on and there they were - in the bedding. I told the staff person on duty, but was advised that he couldn't do anything until the mgr came in at 8 am. He said that he would have her call me, but she never did. I called this afternoon to speak with her but she was "out" and I requested the desk clerk to have her call me when she got back in; I was told that she would be back shortly. Never received call from mgr. I stay at Motel 6 frequently and have never had a problem like this, but what is worse is that the staff doesn't seem to care enough to even respond back to my complaint.
In addition, the complaints others have about the noise is true; I heard loud people outside my room and that finally died down around 1 am.
I would recommend that you pass by this place and keep moving on. After last night, I found that there are a lot better choices in the same price range that provide lodging without waking up itching the next morning!

Room Tip: The best tip I would give someone is to "stay somewhere else".

Farmington was a bigger City than expected, and this Motel one of many in the city.

It has a good pool and the room was clean, but with no b/fast option, no fridge etc. and just coffee in the lobby, it was only a bed for the night. Charging for the wi-fi was in the notes, but in the Hotel next door it was free.

The place seems old and tired and I would not stay there again.

Room Tip: Upstairs has no elevator, and many steps

We stopped over in Farmington for a night and were pleasantly surprised with our stay at the motel 6. The staff were friendly and polite, the room freshly painted and tidy. While a busy hotel, the other guests were mostly blue collar workers that were quiet and non threatening. While I cannot speak to others' experience, ours was pleasant.
We also had a great dinner at st Clair winery and bistro.

Didn't have any issues with bugs or noise. Motel was fairly clean aside from your normal burn marks in comforters and stains on carpet. Would stay here again in a pinch but it's not on the top of my list of good motel 6's.

The only reason they leave the light on at this motel 6 is to help the creepy crawlers locate you easier. Avoid this place like the plague and, judging from the rash my wife had the next morning, the plague lives there. Absolutely filthy room. Torn bedspread. Pieces of somebody's Kentucky Fried Chicken on the floor. Towels are somewhere between gray and white. Rust and mold in the shower. Walls that apparently magnify the sounds of your neighbors. The best thing to be said about the place is "Yeech!" When God gave out personality the desk clerk thought he said "banality" and asked for a big dose.

Room Tip: Go anywhere but this place.

Did the job in the sense that the room was clean and the beds were comfortable. But... there seemed to be a short supply of hot water, they gave us minimum number of towels, the wifi was slow and I got a bit cold in bed at night. If I knew of a similarly priced alternative I would recommend that instead.

Room Tip: 1st floor and near parking would be preferable.
