Terrible! Don't ever go there! Bed sheets are horrible, dirty with lots of holes from cigarette butts. Smelly room! Scary and rude guests, too! I didn't feel safe so I didn't finish my stay and immediately transferred to another hotel (thank God I found 1 available rm in Silver Spring) without even attempting to get my money back--didn't bother. I... More

The first impression is that the hotel itself smells like they fight really hard to hide the smell. It smells of disinfectant but the odors were fighting back. It also smelled like people smoke in smoke-free rooms. When I walked into my room, the first thing that I saw was roaches. That made me worry about them getting into my... More

This was one of the very few times I almost cancelled my reservation after reading other reviews on this site. I am pleased to report that my experience was nothing like any of the others. I will grant that the linoleum in my room was well past its useful life and was in need of replacement. However, the room was... More

The location is good: nice area, local shops very close, and metro 15 minutes away. The hotel is not set-up for tourists; the on-line description is accurate and facilities as-advertised, but the overall impression of the hotel is grim and dirty. The pool was covered over; even though the weather was wonderful.

In my over 22 years of travelling; this is the most horrible I've ever stayed at. This filth, roaches, ... the list is very long. The authorities in DC should close down this place before something terrible happens. I had the misfortune to not have any other availability during the time I was visiting. Next time I'll make sure that... More

I stayed in this motel about a year ago, but the memory is still very vivid. The first impression of the lobby and hallways was that the staff have been sweeping dust in the corners and smearing dirt around for years. That is, there were attempts to clean it, but not very enthusiastic. The price was good, and everything else... More

This was the only available room in DC the night I stayed. It was very bad. Roaches, people shouting at each other after midnight, had to leave the window due to stale smoky odor, maybe got three hours sleep.

Stayed here out of desperation, as all other hotels were booked-out. I understand that Motel 6 is a budget chain, I appreciate that it's meant to be cheap, clean, basic accommodation.
