“Not comfy”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

We were traveling home from our family vacation and decided to stop here, while we found the hotel to be clean and updated we were disappointed to find the lacking in ammenities. There is no room info, phone info, clock, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer, luggage rack, or wall hanggings {there was almost an echo}. The list could go on but we don't see any need in iron boards and irons or even coffee if it is available in the lounge. There was also plenty of space in the newly renovated rooms to have a table and chairs. Very unconfortable only being able to sit on the beds.

Why is there a reading lamp in the corner with no chair?
(YOU paid the designer TOO much)

Why is the refrigerater and microwave so small if you have to pay extra for it?
We put some lunch meat and cheese in the refrig for lunch on the road for the travel home but unfortantly it was frozen by morning.

Why are there ashtrays in the non-smoking rooms if smoking isn't allow, please give me shampoo and conditioner instead.

They need to partner up with local restaurants for an info book in the room to promote locale eating facitiles that may also recommend them

Overall, it's cool that they have a theater and many facilities around them; you won't know it without investigation on your own

If you say here, ask management to provide you with local area info.

I stay at a bunch of hotels when traveling and am usually pretty picky about them. The guy (Tom) at the front desk was very kind and helpful and got me checked in very fast. Once I got into my room I was surprised how clean it was. It looked newly renovated. Even for a smoking room the towels and sheets didn't smell bad and the wood floor was nice and clean. 32" LCD TV and if u pay $3 extra you get a fridge and microwave. Great food options nearby. Get "Pretzel and Pizza Creations" delivered while you’re there, you’ll thank me.

As a dog owner and frequent road-tripper I have stayed in my share of Motel 6's. This one has the delightful make over of faux wood floors, new bedding and tile bathroom floors. All things that I love as they don't keep in odor. It looked wonderful and was clean.

The management and front desk were very nice and accomodating but my stay was not without mishaps. Fire alarm on for an hour one night while they were obviously trying to fix it and the next night housekeeping cleaned rooms until 830pm and charge past my room every10 minutes with their bins on wheels making a jolt everytime. I finally gave up trying to sleep as it would scare the dickens out of me. I had to make an early start the next day so was happy to turn in early, but that was not to happen I guess.

There were other little things like delay in checking in, no light bulb working in bathroom, multiple tries at a working remote, internet access given to me the first day complimentary, but upon check out was added to my bill...but it is motel 6 I have come to expect those things.

The staff was nice and room was clean and new...that along with their very reasonable price were the things to concentrate on.

Checking in after 10 we didn't expect to get the room that we reserved but to our surprise we did. However we had to change rooms due to poor air conditioning into still another room with no air. After the 3rd room change and two days later we got a room with air that was excellent. However, it was a double with no fridge or micro, unlike our reservation. Recent renovated rooms are very nice and clean. Pros: quiet, comfy beds Cons no free wifi and grounds were not kept clean.

Room Tip: Make sure the a/c works before unpacking.

Most of my experiences at M6 have been dismal so I used a "guest certificate" at this property for one night and was so happy and impressed that I PAID to book a second night. The desk staff (females) are so helpful, friendly and professional. Finally, M6 room that was spotless clean, in working order and although furniture was lacking (no desk or chair) -- the bed was very comfortable. The only problem on this stay was my second paid night ... the internet went down after a storm and the desk (male) attendant didn't want to help fix the router nor attempted to compensate in some way for the inconvenience. I had to ask for access code renewal. Lots of good shopping and even a movie theater across the parking lot. I will return here!

Room Tip: Upper floors better... be careful, so long-term guests are there with children and it can get noisy.
