The woman at the front desk was very friendly I believe her name was Gloria. This location is right off the fwy but you can't tell once you're in you're room. I've always gotten a good night's sleep and haven't had any issues with noise. I do have to slay their beds are not the best quality, they need to... More

It had been many years since I stayed in a Motel 6, so perhaps the odd, wasteful room design is standard. Furniture included: 2 small semi-circular tables affixed to the wall - one with a 1 person “couch” while the other boasted 2 uncomfortable wooden chairs; a bed annoying with no side tables – no where to even put a...

A friend of ours told us about this motel 6 so we gave it a shot. All the employees are so nice and helpful. The room is nice with hardwood floors and it had a sitting area that is separated by a half wall from the bed. The pool was clean and enjoyable and they even have a tennis court.... More

Room was pretty spacious, but walls were dirty. Bathtub looked a bit run down, and fridge had an unpleasant smell. There were no toiletries in our bathroom, except a bar of soap. You'd think that for what was paid, the stay would have been a bit more pleasant. At check-in the front office 'manager' tried to keep a copy of... More

The rooms are ok but the front desk staff is the reason I will never return. The older man at the front desk was so rude. When you have strong customer service at a location people will always return yet this motel must not want business. Keep the old rude guy at the front desk and you will continue to... More

Close to 78, quiet area. Friendly, nice and informative staff at front desk. Free WiFi, little problem with tv remote but the staff came in right away to check and change battery. Overall a pleasant stay.
