“Clean and well-maintained but not very comfortable”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

I travel quite a bit for business and pleasure and typically stay in a Marriott hotel; I had not stayed in a Motel Six since I was very young but decided to give this a try due to the reviews regarding the remodeling. I stayed here for only one night.

Positive aspects are:
1. Centrally located; easy to find.
2. Sufficient parking
3. Clean rooms
4. Adjacent Mexican restaurant provides an option for breakfast

Yes, the rooms are remodeled and have a European/minimalist quality. But negative aspects are:
1. The bed was not very comfortable (mattress on a platform-not box springs).
2. There was no easy chair or couch.
3. The only place to sit was on a one-person wall-mounted chair and a free standing chair.
4. Dump Trucks (2-3) emptied dumpsters in the adjacent lot at approximately 3:00 AM.
5. Towels and wash cloth were very thin.

The room did not have the following amenities:
1. Hair Dryer
2. Iron/Ironing Board
3. Coffeemaker (coffee was available in the lobby)

There is nothing drastically wrong with this property but I would not stay here again because I prefer a room that is more comfortable/cozy/quiet.

Dear Guest

Thank you for taking the time to review our Motel 6 in Boerne. I apologize that we did not live up to your expectations. You had mentioned you stay at Marriott branded hotels, we unfortunately, cannot provide the amenities and certain comforts afforded to you by those type of hotel brands.

We at the Motel 6 brand, are providing our guests with the lowest price of any national chain. In order to give our guests this price, there are certain amenities we forgo. This is true for every single Motel 6 nationwide. However, since we are not allowed to place these amenities in the guest room as per our brand standard, we do keep certain amenities for your convenience at the front office, such as irons and ironing boards and hairdryers.

Again, i apologize if you had been misled by the reviews on this website, but we are a budget branded motel, that cannot afford to provide many amenities and at the same time provide our guest the price affordability.

Traveling with pets is becoming more common. However, it is often still more difficult to find pet-friendly lodging. Accommodations remind me somewhat of European hotels with smaller beds (doubles versus queens) that are very firm. No box springs, the beds sit on a wood platform. Minimal furnishings, minimal linens and minimal amenities. The price ($60 a night) is comparable to what you receive. However, I would recommend bringing along a blanket for stays during the winter. Towels and washcloths are thin and small so throw in a beach towel in your suitcase. Vinyl flooring is colder in the winter but as Texas is normally hot would probably be wonderful in the summertime. The room comes with a small refrigerator and microwave. No blow dryer. The only issue we experienced was that one of the beds had springs poking up when laid on that caused for inability to get comfortable sleeping. If you need a place to basically lay your head at night and allows pets, this is it. A donut place next door that you can walk to from the motel. HEB Grocery just down the road. Quick access to the highway.

Dear Guest

I want to thank you for taking the time to write a very informative review. I apologize for the inconveniences you had to go through. The towel issue has been addressed and are all being replaced. I am glad you made us aware of the uncomfortable mattress, we had never received a comment on this matter before .However, upon reading about your experience, we did test it and have consequently replaced the mattress. If it was not for your response, another would guest would have gone through the same experience that you have encountered. So, again thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you the next time you are in Boerne

Motel-6 was a new experience for us. Trip Advisor rating, coupled with their website noting that they are a proto-type of the new image of Motel 6 brought us to give them a try. This site has been completely renovated, using a sleek European modern décor--bamboo flooring, wall-flat screen TV, two large mirrors, table and seating for two, granite vanity/bath, coffee in lobby.

Budget motel with clean comfortable bedroom/restroom. Only complaint is the low water pressure on the sink. Other than that- the room served its purpose of letting my family of 3 sleep comfortably. I guess the phrase don't judge the book by its cover is try to this motel.

Beds were comfortable, room clean and quiet. Great location, close to shopping, restaurants and Interstate -10. The owners are nice and helpful, free brewed coffee in lobby. We have stayed there several times this summer. Weekends, of course are more expensive but during the week it's most reasonable compared to others in area.

The newl-remodeled Boerne Motel 6 is GREAT! Very clean, all new modern furnishings and bath fixtures. Fresh, free coffee in the lobby, well-maintained pool, clean linens! No complaints... nothing but EXCELLENT!

Room Tip: The two rooms I saw were exactly the same :) Don't miss the breakfast tacos at the Guadalajara...

the place was clean and the bed was comfortable. I like the decor. The coffee in the check-in area was hot and good. Will stay there again next time in boerne.. Had a pool, but did not use this time. There are plenty of places to eat in the area.

I like the motel better than trip advisor. I am a person of few words.
