My husband and I were vacationing and headed to the Oregon coast from Crater Lake a few days ago. We decided to stay at this motel 6 since we've stayed at other Motel 6's and they were always decent. We knew we were getting a cheap hotel and we were not expecting anything super special. However, I did expect a clean room. The first room we were put in was not. I always check the bathroom and toilet when I first arrive at a hotel and this one had a hair on the toilet seat. The sink had a clean wash cloth on the counter however there were a bunch of tiny hairs on it and all over the counter, as if a man had cleaned out his electric razor over the sink after it had been cleaned. We are not the kind of people to make a big fuss but we did politely ask for a different room. The staff was very nice and gave us a different room on the opposite side of the building. This bathroom was clean. However you could tell the general upkeep of the hotel was really a low priority. There was a burn mark on the shower ledge (from what I don't know) and a bath mat had been strategically placed to cover it up. There was a melted hole in the top of our tv (half of the channels were snowy/staticy so we could only watch a couple of channels). And when I removed the comforter from the bed there were two cigarrette burn holes. There were two small bars of soap and a note in the room that said if we needed anything like shampoo or conditioner we should contact the front desk as they only had a limited supply of those and they were on a first come first serve basis. Probably the worst part of the room though was a very strong chemical smell. I thought at first it was just the cleaner they used and that I was just not used to that kind of smell. However, after sleeping through the night both my husband and myself woke up with burning eyes and stuffy noses. We felt like we'd slept on the floor of a smoky casino!
Outside of the room there were also some questionable characters hanging out in the parking lot and around the hotel. I'm not sure what was going on but there was someone who had slept in their car outside of our room--not sure why they didn't just stay in a room?
As I stated above, we are not the type of people who want to make a fuss or whine and complain. And we knew we were not paying for a Four Seasons type of hotel stay. But I don't think there is any excuse for dirty rooms--and honestly I know times are tough but a thin queen size blanket without cigarrette burns is relatively cheap nowadays. Do yourself a favor people and don't stay at this hotel. It was not a good experience.
Side note: The staff there were very nice and we in no way blame them for our bad experience. They were apologetic but the problems this hotel has are coming from the top.
