“Very worn out”
Reviewed October 14, 2007

This Days Inn is so badly worn that I cannot recommend it at all.
The toilet seat was peeling, the floor had holes in it. The check in lady was surly and refused to let me have trip reward points because I was using a discounted rate. (First time that's happened to me at a Days Inn!)

  • Liked — location was convenient
  • Disliked — It's old, worn, and an obvious fire trap. Old junk AC units and charcoal grills littter the exterior

Nice location, but would not stay here again.
Air Conditioner was not able to be regulated without guessing.
Knob would keep turning with no stopping point.
Sink for the bathroom, cold water had no stopping point on the handle. You had to keep turning and guess when it would shut off.
The toilet was stained so bad that you would think it had not been cleaned in a long time.
Laundry room...one couple in our party tried to do laundry and one of the washers was not working properly. They actually had to take the clothes out and put in other washer. Management was told that day that it was full of water and not washing. Two days later we went to do laundry before leaving and the washer was still full of water. Front desk acted as if it was no big deal.
Swimming pool tiles looked as if they had not been cleaned in some time.

  • Liked — I was in a good location
  • Disliked — The concern of the management for things that were wrong. Attitude

This was the most disgusting hotel room that I have ever stayed in. Would have left immediately, if it was not already so late.....

Stains everywhere, bed spread was burned, smoke detector was taken off the wall and had no battery, floor was soaked, sink backed up, tub was stained and would not drain, cigarette butts and white powdery substance on floor.......would write more, but you get the picture. Hotel would not correct problems!

I stayed at this Motel 6 on numerous occassions during 2004 and 2005. I was ending a marriage, and was driving a truck, so this became my home away from home for up to six days at a stretch during this period.

This motel is all on one level, very convenient to everything from nice restaurants to a new, huge shopping complex about a mile away (Super Wal-Mart, Super Target, tons of stores, all new in the last several years). Stones-throw from Interstate 40. Very nice pool. When I was there, there was a staff that hotels costing 4 times as much would have been proud of. Internet connection in each room, too....great for my laptop.

No question...the finest Motel 6....no, the finest budget motel of any brand I've ever stayed in.

This hotel was very disappointing. The first room we were given had a dirty toilet seat, ants in the bathroom, stained pillow case and a ripped bedspread. We asked for another room and they nicely obliged. The second room was a slight fraction better - cleaner and no ants. However, the second night, housekeeping had put a sheet on our bed that had what appeared to be a blood stain on it. The whole experience was just GROSS! Thank God we only needed 2 nights.

This was the most disgusting place we have ever been to in our lives. The tub was rotting out in the bathroom, our room was infested with ants, and there was SNOT all over the furniture in the room. I cannot believe a place like this remains in business, I wouldn't even allow my worst enemy to stay at this dump. Stay away from here, the management is indifferent to the squalor that abounds.
