“not clean enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

We were passing through Wendover and needed a place to stay that was dog friendly.
The positive thing about this place is they do not charge extra money if you have a dog. This was great as most places have a fee. That is why I gave 3 stars . But I wanted to give the motel 2 stars for its room quality.
The other positive is it is very affordable. But remember you get what you pay for.
The negative about the room was it was dirty. The bedding and bathroom. Sheets and pillows did not fit the bed. Pillow was lumpy and scrunched up ball. Carpet was disgusting. Air quality poor. My husband could barely breath. I would spend the extra money and pay to stay somewhere else.

This is our second time spending a night on our way out of town after skiing at SLC. The motel was acceptably clean, and the service was very good. Being able to park directly outside the room is very convenient with a car load of ski gear to bring inside. Our door lock had problems (and needs replaced), but the guy at the desk easily showed me it operated properly as long as the handle was lifted up instead of down.

I stayed for one night and was completely appalled at this place. The room was freezing cold all night and when we asked the service desk to bring us more blankets, the response we got was that we have to come get them ourselves. Also the place smelled like dog and was not clean at all. I am never giving these people money again!

Way better than the Mo6 in Winnemucca. Traveling with the dog so we had few options. Room 238 was around the back and super quiet. I was shocked that we got a king sized bed--what a luxury at a cheap motel. My usual beef is with pillows at nice joints and crappy ones. Most are too puffy and hurt my neck. No complaints here. Nice long flat pliable pillows and sheets that smelled clean and bleachy. They even had free wifi!

I recently stayed two nights at this property, and stay at other Motel 6 locations from time to time when cheap, basic lodging is what I am looking for. And that is what this property offers.

The motel is located just east of the Utah/Nevada state line along the Business I-80 route through Wendover and is set back far enough from the highway so that road noise is not a problem. This is a traditional style Motel 6 that is in generally good repair. The rooms are not of the upgraded variety, but mine was clean and comfortable. The climate control worked well, the mattresses were comfortable, and the shower provided ample hot water.

On the plus side, the check-in process was handled by an efficient, pleasant person. i had a confirmed reservation but arrived very late - after 3:00am - but, unlike most Motel 6's, I did not have to check in through the small night window. The lobby was open, and I was able to complete the process there.

And, unlike most Motel 6 properties, the room had a "do not disturb" hangtag, which I appreciated, as I had arrived late and didn't want to be disturbed in the morning.

On the minus side, housekeeping services are provided only on an "on request" basis rather than automatically. Since my stay was only 2 days, I didn't bother to ask for service, but I assume that it would have been provided routinely had I asked. But as I've never seen such a practice at any other Motel 6, I mention it here, because it is a bit out of the ordinary, since housekeeping is a typically a standard service provided on a daily basis without having to be requested.

Also, I found that there was a considerable amount of trash left outside of guest room doors, and little seemed to be done to clean things up. My stay occurred right after a major motorcycle race event at the Bonneville Salt Flats, and motel occupancy was quite high with many race participants staying there. I did not encounter any problems or disturbances from the other guests - everyone was well behaved - but the grounds were quite messy with room debris such as pizza boxes, beverage containers, and other personal trash. I would have expected the management to keep the grounds in better shape, considering the occupancy levels and the amount of debris, since the guests themselves were not taking their trash to the appropriate bins.

Overall, this motel was pretty much what I've come to expect from Motel 6 and did deliver reasonable value for the money. Senior rates are available (10% off) to those 60 or older, and, as of this writing, booking via the brand website offers special internet rates that also happen to be 10% off. I've stayed here before, although it has been quite a while - and I would stay here again.

The 5 casinos of West Wendover, Nevada, are just a few blocks away, and there is a small supermarket nearby and a gas station/convenience store across the street. Fast food options, including McDonalds, are just up the road on the Nevada side of the line, past the Peppermill Casino.

This is my 2nd time staying here on my way to Salt Lake City. I gave it an average rating last time but I'm giving it a very good rating this time. This is what I want from a Motel 6. Very clean, comfortable, cheap, no bad smell, internet was quick (though apparently not all rooms can access the wireless internet) and easy access to interstate. The staff are also very friendly and they actually smile but it was slow to check in because there was only one person there and about 4 other people waiting. I'd much rather pay a really low price and get a very clean room then pay more and get a renovated Motel 6. Its a great place for stopover. Even if you are coming to Wendover to go to the casinos, I highly recommend staying here.

we stayed at this motel while traveling from calif. to Kentucky,
and then stayed there again,on our return trip 2 weeks later.

office staff was friendly, Its a typical motel 6, doggie friendly

, AND ITS WHAT WE EXPECTED, BUT its not the (MGM HOTEL) STYLE.

everything is basic, but what a deal for 40 dollars.

you can pay 3.00 extra, for a micro and a fridge if you want one.

we plan to stay there again in the next few weeks on the way to wyoming..

Room Tip: we like it downstairs so we can park in front of our door. it was not noisy at this motel, while we...
