“HORROR STORY.”
Reviewed August 23, 2009

DO NOT STAY at the Motel 6 on Highway 278 in Hilton Head. The hotel we were supposed to stay in was over sold and we ended up at the Motel 6 for one night out of sheer desperation. We should have slept in our car. That would have been cleaner! Our sheets had cigarette holes in them. Our bathroom floor was apparently rotting and when you walked across it the floor was sagging and squeaking under the filthy carpeting. All the room's carpet was strangely discolored and frightening. We kept hearing people screaming randomly in the night and did not know what was happening. There was all kinds of debris in the parking lot (limbs down, dead leaves, trash, broken furniture). There were SKETCHY PEOPLE hanging out in the parking lot that kept eyeing our car so we totally unpacked our car of everything we had brought for our vacation and put it in the hotel room. Then we put a piece of furniture up against the door because the bolt and lock was not working. WHY is this motel still open???

Dirty, dirty dirty......bugs, bugs, bugs and a very unkempt property. I should have spent a little bit more and stayed next door at the Red Roof Inn.

This motel was TERRIBLE!!!! I booked online and by the way the pictures online looked the motel look decent. Well the pictures must have been from the day the originally opened this location or pictures from a different location. The room was nasty and we had a LIVE cockroach in the room to great us! We were there 2mins! Went to the front desk and just telling the lady about the bug, she gave our money back right then! She said the place was closing. We could see why!! STAY AWAY!

I thought it was really funny how whenever we went to the front desk to check out a room that it said on the wall that there was free wifi in every room. Then when we went to try to connect to it, we couldnt. So we called up to the desk and they said they dont have it there. WTF???

We made our reservations at the Motel 6 website before looking it up on Trip Advisor, so I was a little worried. However, service at the front desk was awesome and the staff was very polite/helpful. To my suprise, our room was very clean and we didn't have any bugs. The AC was cold and the pool was clean. I will definitely stay here again. We stayed in room #225.

This is one of the dirtiest place I have ever visited. Not only was our room infested with cockroaches but it was also plain dirty. Unfortunately, we reached late and had a dog so we could not go anywhere else, but you can! We had to leave a light on to avoid major bug attacks and I spent most of my night killing bugs and hiding under a sheet. The hotel staff tried to help by giving us roach killer but there was not much else they could do. Consider yourself warned! Management ended up giving us a refund after I told them about our experience.

This wasn't my most favorite motel ever, not even my most favorite Motel 6 but I've stayed worse places. The front desk woman was nice but the room smelled (in part from the waste water treatment plant out back). The heat smelled like a burning cat. The volume on the TV wouldn't turn down very far. There were cigarette burns on the blanket (in a no smoking room). The bathroom door wouldn't shut tight. There was a wierd noise coming from the bathroom. There was mold on the wall. It was pretty cheap, which was good, but not very near teh beach which was not so good. On the whole it was an average Motel 6...but don't you think they could strive for better than average? By the way, those 2 inch roaches that people mention aren't roaches, they're palmetto bugs. Yes they're disgusting but they're everywhere in the south, even at the high class resorts. Ignore them and they won't hurt you. Don't step on them unless you want a huge mess to clean up.
