We had a reservation for three nights but located to another Motel 6 after the first night. Pulling into the parking lot, I had the distinct impression that this was one of those motels where down and out locals stay on a regular basis. We had two room and both smelled bad. We left our bags in the car, opened all the windows and left for a few hours. Fortunately the smell had subsided significantly in one of the rooms, but the other room was horrible, so we put as many people as we could in the room that was tolerable. However, the rug was wet in the less stinky room, so you had to dry off your feet before getting back in bed after every time you got up. In the morning they told us that the rug had been washed and that normally they inform occupants of that before they settle in--I guess they forgot to tell us. Regardless, we had the last two unoccupied rooms of the night, so there wouldn't have been much alternative at that point. Maybe they don't need to concern themselves with the comfort of their rooms since they have such a high occupancy rate...
One redeeming feature is that there's a great bowling alley right across the street. We bowled for $10 per person (including shoes) 9:30-12am and had a blast. My husband got his two highest scores ever, so I wouldn't be surprised if he'd be willing to sacrifice comfort for bowling mojo and stay there again (alone!).
