To start off we attempted to check in well after check in time and the front desk was not sure if the room was ready. Once in the room there was no table and chairs which are shown in the pictures and the room was not cleaned very well. There was hair on the sheets and the pillowcases had stains...

If there was an option for no stars this place would get just that. SCARY, is the most fitting word for this motel. I was in town for a horse show and just wanted a clean inexpensive place to stay, because I knew I would not be in the room only to sleep. Upon arriving the 3 people in line...

Motel 6 is one of my favorite places to stay. The price is usually very budget friendly and it is a cool comfortable room. I really enjoy their radio commercials with Tom Bodett and have noticed that they have done a wonderful job of showcasing in their motels what Tom talks about in the radio spots. Ask Irene if she...

I really appreciate the cancellation policy of Motel 6 nationwide. We were flying in Late from Santa Barbara, Ca. on May 20 late afternoon. It was raining and we needed a rental car and on and on and on. Turns out we had double booked hotels so cancelled here. NO problem. That kind of customer support as late as 6pm...

Compared to other places for the price, the hotel was nice. It had new floors and a flat screen TV. the staff was friendly but the housekeeping person came knocking on the door at 10am asking if we were checking out soon. I would go again though.

We always try to stay at the Motel 6 chain as they are moderately priced and usually quiet and clean. This one was no exception. The beds were very comfortable, and the rooms quiet. Coffee in the main room was a boon to my friend, who is not really conscious until a cup or two have been chugged.

We picked this place because it was one of the cheapest motels in Austin, and we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, the beds are fine, and the bath/shower combo is decent. The windows and curtains keep out noise very well - I slept through a thunderstorm with no problems. The rooms are large with decent storage...

Manager/owner had his car parked in the pull up canopy. Very hard for people to go in and out with care with just one side available. Room was OK for sleeping. Got ready to take a shower and there was NO SHOWER CURTAIN. Took one anyway. Told manager the next morning. Would have been nice if you could get coffee...

We decided to stay at a motel as we had seen so many on films! This place was clean so happy. There were some "dodgers" wondering around. Security was highlighted which was taken on board by both of us but never felt scared. It was a stop over so did the job. I think we shall stick to a nicer...

This motel has been remodeled with the hardwood floors, Euro-style furnishings, and cleaner showers. You can't really do better for a budget motel chain then a remodeled Motel 6 or Red Roof Inn. Checking in was painful - the guy was dreadfully slow, but friendly enough. Maybe that's how they do in Texas... The motel sits right off busy I-35...
