“AVOID this Motel, You Have been Warned!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

The Last thing I enjoy or want to do is leave a bad review, but not to do so, would be unfair to the next traveler/family who checks into this motel. If I can help anyone traveling to avoid this place, it will have served its purpose. While I/We do not have high expectations of a Motel 6, when it is plain dirty & unsanitary it is important to let people know. On our recent cross country trip (with our dogs), we checked in to this motel, in the early evening, approx 7:30 pm, room 116,on a weeknite this past september. After getting settled in and unloading the luggage, we checked the linens on both beds, and found them to be dirty, soiled & wrinkled from the previous guests. It was obvious the maid just re-made the bed! in the process of checking the linens, the bed pulled away from the wall a few inches and all that could be seen were many, many roaches living along the wall board and under the bed. I then loaded up the car and went to the front desk for a refund, actually, the front desk clerk wasn't surprised, it seemed like a "non event" this must happen all the time!, she then voided my credit card slip, gave me a copy, and away we went leaving the roaches and dirty sheets behind! I/we have stayed at many motel 6's without incident, but this one is not up to par, it is plain and simple ~ dirty, Overall Rating ~ TERRIBLE/AVOID.....You have been warned!

This is one of the nicest Motel 6 I have stayed at. Great price, clean room, big flat screen tv. Nice floors and very HELPFUL staff. We checked in on a Friday night as an overnight stay on the way to Hot Springs. Great Rates. I have stayed at worse motels that have charged double their price. This is a great place for an overnight stay, and by the way our bed was VERY, VERY COMFY.

We had ran across this updated Motel 6 in our searches for motels prior to hitting the road and so when we unexpectedly drove through Sallisaw on the way home, this updated pet-friendly motel came to mind. We purposely drove into the night to get there.

Oh goodness....I am cheap. I don't like paying big bucks for sleeping in a bed for one night, but this time it would have been worth it.

Where do I start? Here is the basic issue - this appears to be an aging motel someone has purchased, then bought whatever licensing is needed and all the paint, flooring and bedspreads required to match the Motel 6 guidelines. It was an "update" that was poorly - and clearly unprofessionally - done.

Here are the specific issues: The flooring appeared to be peel and stick wood grain looking vinyl. No problem, except that it was so thin that it was peeling at the edges. This made it look dirty. The orange used on the wall had dripped on the floor and heater/air conditioner. No one ever attempted to clean it. The paint on the doors was severely peeling. The coverlets were thin, cigarette burned and stained. The blanket between the bedspread and coverlet was an orange, balled up mess. The bathroom was just disgusting with mildew and old, worn fixtures. The modern towel holder that sits above the toilet in the professional Motel 6 photos wasn't even placed close to level. The whole room just looked tacky. We pulled the coverlets and blankets back, set the air at a little higher temp and slept very carefully. The table and chairs were wobbly and the mattresses thin.

Our room faced the road, but there is little traffic and so there were no issues with noise during the night. Also, the staff was friendly at both check in and check out.

Only if no other vacancies existed and I had no choice but to stay here, would I do this again. I would do everything I could to not though. Our room, after tax, was a little more than $60.00. Not even close to worth the price.

Keep driving! It appears they have tried to update but it is so dated and very poorly maintained. I stayed only because I was to tired to drive any further. Beds were ok but the bathroom was not well maintained. The tv was new. But no hair dryer and the towels were small and cheap. Only a small bar of soap.

Newly remodeled with large screen flat panel TVs. Friendly staff welcomed us in. The bed was great!

Cost includes Internet which is better than the additional cost at most other Motel 6's

Quiet and nice place to crash for the night.

Room Tip: King non smoking worked well for us

I stayed at this Motel 6 in March 2012 and was very unimpressed with the overall attitude, cleanliness, etc. I stayed here again in March 2013 and it was much better. The attitude of the front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was much cleaner. The bed was comfortable. This is an older motel but in fairly good repair. There was not a charge for dogs in the room this time. There is plenty of grass around the motel to walk the dogs (be sure to pick up after your dogs when staying at any motel so dog people will be welcome.) My only complaint was that after the room was cleaned, there were no towels or wash cloth left, which was easily remedied by asking for them. Overall, much better experience than a year ago.

Great location, clean and quiet !! Staff very friendly and helpful. As always so nice that Motel 6 accept pets and can still offer a quality place to stay. They make a good pot of coffee in the A.M. as too. Also there are a couple of places to grab a quick bite to eat on the way out of town. Thanks for a pleasant experience !!!
