During a recent trip to the Alton area, I needed a hotel for a night. I found this hotel on the Motel 6 website, but couldn't book it either on the website or on the national reservations number due to a system outage. This was not an issue to the desk clerk who got me the room with no problems....

I went to St. Louis in April 2015 with my high school robotics team for the world competition. We chose this due to the low price, although low for a reason. I expected it to be nice since it was part of a chain, but after looking at past reviews, I was rather skeptical. The hotel was out-dated in the...

The hotel has been completely refurbished and I could still smell the fresh paint on the walls. The staff is friendly and courteous and the management is readily available. Good people too. Nice place at an economical price on the the NE side of St Louis. A nice pool is also available. I will certainly be on the lookout for...

We recently stayed here while visiting family. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and nice. Our room was simple and clean. The pool was nice. Worth the price. We would stay again and recommend staying here. Very close to St. Louis too.

Was a little concerned, but while the property is a tad rough. Our room was clean and well worth the money. The desk clerk, Austin was great. Even calling into the room to make sure everything was OK. I'd stay again.

I'd be to generous to give this hotel a average rating. It's a overpriced budget basic type hotel. It's expensive. The owner/manager is not friendly at all, the paperwork that he forces you to sign is just a blatant violation of privacy. All kinds of absurd rules. So called continental breakfast is poor, but more stupid rules posted on the...

The only positive thing I would like to share here is that this hotel is cheap. The room and corridor smell very nasty. The bathroom is outdated and our tub's tap was not working at all. For shower, I literally counted the number of drops of water that came out. The bedsheet/comforter smelled very badly which will knock out in...

Well all the rooms were sold out in this area as there was some convention in town, plus summer travelers. This place had very limited parking as the lot was being redone. This place was dirty, rugs filthy, and smelled really bad.The first thing I did was look for bed bugs, but didn't see any. It was supposed to be...
