Motel 6 The Dalles
Ranked #7 of 9 Hotels in The Dalles
Reviewed March 13, 2014

Newly remodeled in the 'modern' Motel 6 style, this place has been given the laminate wood floors, furniture with no drawers, and the flat screen TV treatment. Thankfully though, it still had a table and chairs, and not the silly diner booth thing I have seen elsewhere. I guess that the wood floors are easier to maintain, but I really prefer carpeting.

Pros...
-Good price.
-Friendly and quick check in.
-Clean and comfortable.
-Appliances all worked well.
Free Wifi was useful.

Not really cons, but things that kind of brought it down..
-Being right across the road from the freeway made it kind of noisy.
-Pretty small bathroom.
-Sink and mirror in a bit of an awkward spot immediately inside the door, in the way of the door.

For me, 3/5 stars is what I would rate a place that merely meets my expectations for the price I paid, this Motel 6 beat those expectations enough to move up to 4/5.

We have stayed several times here and this time we were very pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel has been updated. New carpet in the halls, nice and very clean. The rooms are updated in the "new" Motel 6 chain decor modeled after European motels. Rooms are freshly painted with new linens, curtains, flat screen tvs, micro and fridge.Price remains at the same which is a very reasonable " senior" rate and with free WIFi. Fresh hot coffee in the lobby 24X7 and a friendly staff.

A very basic, "No place else to stay" hotel. Fair price. No clocks or wall hangings in room. Phone was cutting out to front desk. Towels were better then the Super 8 in the same town. Microwave and fridge if you need it. AND working flat screen TV! Also better then Super 8 in same town. Sheets and towels were clean, but the floors could use more attention. Needed some deep cleaning/vacuuming. It met our middle of the night need for sleep.

Room Tip: Quiet ground floor room next to car dealership.

Arrived on the last day of a car show in town. Hard to find a room but they were available here. The sticker shock was the price had been upped to $89.00 for a single room. It totaled out to $98 including tax! The desk manager explained that prices went up because of the car show. I thought this better be the best Motel 6 ever. It was an average Motel 6 although the room did have a microwave and refrigerator. Breakfast was minimal and it would be better to move on and get a real breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful. I learned a lesson that if possible avoid event towns unless you are there for the event.

Room Tip: First floor away from highway

Checked into the Dalles Motel 6 around 10 p.m. after a long drive nearing the end of a 3 week road trip. Had to take a single bed queen for three of us (myself, my wife and teenaged son) but fortunately we had a camping cot with us. Small, utilitarian, but clean room with everything we needed, which was essentially just a place to sleep. Overall, nothing spectacular, but what you expect when you stop at a Motel 6. The exit door to the parking lot was a bit of a security concern – the push bar assembly was half-detached, which meant getting in and out a bit of a challenge, but it wouldn’t have taken much to break in. One major highlight – this Motel 6 has the FASTEST wifi I have ever seen in a hotel – nearly 30 MBps! That would be a major consideration if I was staying more than a single night.

Surprisingly cute (small) room which my wife described the room as "immaculate." Wi-fi is free and reasonably fast. The outdoor pool is heated. AC was effective. Fridge and microwave in room. You get soap but no shampoo or conditioner. Front desk clerk was friendly. The five stars is for value for the money.

Check in was pleasant and fast. Ground floor room with a window looking at our car. This Motel 6 offered a few more towels than the one in Willows, CA. The carpet is probably due for replacement, perhaps a laminate flooring would be in order. Two queen beds were comfortable.
We picked up dinner and a bottle of wine from the deli in nearby Safeway.
