Motel 6 Columbia East
Ranked #55 of 93 Hotels in Columbia
Reviewed August 12, 2012

What a dump! For a non smoking room there was a ash tray and so many cig. burns on the counter, sink. Dirt and grime in the corners of the the tub and sink. No bugs thankfully.

No shampoo, towls like sand paper.

I think this is mostly a section 8(monthly renters) hotel. Loud nosies all night, the person/persons staying in the room across have no respect for anyone else staying there. The room next to me would POUND on the wall sometimes( i was sleeping T.V was off)

I would never stay there again.

This is a bare bones motel by today's standards, but was clean and the staff helped when asked and pleasant about it. They do need to update what their facility offers, such as fitness room, which no longer exist.

Bring your own shampoo, hair dryer and some extra money if you want any kind of breakfast and wifi. Rooms are very spartan and very basically furnished. No refrig, no microwave, no coffee maker....nothing except a too-soft bed with 2 lumpy pillows and a chair. No breakfast of any kind...just coffee in the morning. Forget about a newspaper! TV channels are quite limited. TV is old style, small screen tube type.The neighborhood is not very pleasant...on the wrong side of the tracks. I'm here by myself and very glad my wife didn't join me on this golf trip to Columbia. I made a big mistake booking this place. I don't feel very comfortable here.

On the plus side, the front desk staff is pleasant.

That's it! Won't be staying at Motel 6 again!

Room Tip: stay somewhere else!

This was my first stay in a Motel6 and selected solely on the basis of these reviews.

There was absolutely nothing wrong with the room and the staff was great, but I guess I just don't understand the Motel6 value proposition. Absolutely nothing not essential to sleeping for the night is provided. While the base price is great, after you add $3 for internet and $12 breakfast sandwiches and coffee at McDonald's the total cost is equal to or greater than such competitors as Comfort Inns, Days Inns or Super 8, which offer in room fridges and coffee makers along with free internet and usually decent breakfasts.

I would stay here and probably other Motel6 hotels in the future, but I would not seek them out.

On a positive note, the front desk staff were great and the Lizzard's Wicket restaurant next door served good county cooking at very reasonable prices.
