My Dad & I stayed here as we were in town for a funeral. He made the reservation for this room. We aren't high maintenance people and this was just a place to sleep for us. However, had it been me making the reservations, I would have chosen a step above this. The staff wasn't the southern definition of friendly but they weren't straight up rude either. This place is bare bones. There are no 'ammenities' to speak of. The television is oooold, by at least 20 years. There is no alarm clock, there isn't even kleenex in the bathroom, only 1 bar of soap at the sink and one bar of soap in the shower. The faucet handles on both the sink and the shower were loose so it was tricky getting the temperature that you wanted and the bathroom door was warped so that we couldn't close it all the way. Don't expect a hair dryer or an ironing board either. The clothes rack and hangers were likely the same ones that have been there since the 50s. I was afraid I might need a tetinus shot after handling it. There IS a mini-fridge and microwave so that was a redeeming quality. The towels appeared to be clean but old, they had a greyish tinge to them as opposed to the white towels you would find at any other establishment. We were booked for 2 nights but only stayed for one, not because of the experience but because we were informed by our family that the trip back to Baltimore (to the airport) would be hell on the morning of our departure so we chose to drive back to Baltimore and stay near the airport. The difference between this Motel 6 and the hotel that I chose to book at the BWI airport made it seem like I was staying in a 5 Diamond resort.
As for the shady characters that are mentioned in other reviews, I don't think that I saw any shady characters but none of the other hotel patrons made eye contact with us. We were standing by our cars saying good-bye to my aunt that first evening and I guess we must have been standing too close to one of the other patrons' cars because he came out of his room and bumped the alarm on his car (sorry dude, we weren't trying to jack your car). Also, we were driving a rental car which happened to be a Cadillac CTS. We noticed later on the next day that one of the wheel covers was missing. Not saying that someone lifted a hubcab off of the rental car at this motel or any other place because Cadillac wheel covers are held on by clips and are notorious for falling off BUT I wouldn't be surprised if someone stole the hubcap at this motel. It definitely looks like the place you could expect that sort of thing.
A good thing that I can say about this place (besides the mini fridge) is that it was quiet. There seemed to be a large amount of people staying at this Motel at the same time as us but we never heard anyone in the parking lot or through the walls. AMAZING accoustics for a cheap motel.
