My wife and I needed somewhere to stay on short notice for a Royals game, so we booked the last nonsmoking room at this motel the morning before our stay.
The motel looks fine from the outside, no big deal, and the check in went smoothly, but the room was unacceptable. There were splotches of color where some sort of paper had apparently been stuck and then pulled off, leaving some behind. The heat light in the bathroom was broken. The walls were bare, but you could tell from some of the torn wallpaper that there had been art that was stolen and not replaced.
But the real problem was the bed. It was worn so severely that it sagged several inches in the middle without any weight on it. With my wife and I on it sagged much further, and we were both sucked so far into the middle of the bed when trying to sleep that one couldn't move without disturbing the other -- not that either of us were sleeping, because we were too uncomfortable.
We didn't have any problems with noise, and the price for this Motel 6 were by far the lowest for any chain hotel in the KC area we could find. But if we can avoid booking a room at this hotel again we will.
