This place was terrible and not even worth the low price we paid. Front desk and house cleaning was rude. Room was disgusting. No complimentary soaps or shampoos. No blow dryer, iron, or coffee pot in room. Was only given 3 towels for 6 guest during check in. My children used the bath towels for the pool so we went... More

Cheap. Not great. Housekeeping keeps it clean. Management and maintenance are asleep at the wheel. Burned out lightbulbs in common areas, cigarette butts everywhere. Coffee terrible. If you want cheap this is your place. But it's not great.

My brother needed a place to stay and I was leaving town. The rooms were not ready. Asked if they would hold his items until they were ready. They stated that it was not standard practice, had no helpful suggestions and were rude and unfriendly.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! My husband and I stayed here for the Harley Davidson 110th anniversary. We had changed our reservation, but this location cancelled it completely. They had 1 remaining room, but it was a downgrade. We had to pay the same price. We were charged for the night we had cancelled. Our room was disgusting. I came home... More

This place smells of stinky disifenctant spray. The covers on the bed smell like the inside of a bowling shoe. The carpet had a big sticky stain and there was a big crusty looking 'something' on the bathroom floor. There was a half used roll of toilet paper sitting on top of the empty roll holder. The guy at the... More

I was very skeptical to read mixed reviews abt this motel 6. Went there for my son's Naval Graduation from his bootcamp. Upon checking in we noticed Staff was super friendly and on top of everything, the motel was very clean, its grounds & rooms were clean and well equipped. The bed we had (room #220) was very good; seem... More

Staying at this location for my brother's RTC Graduation at Great lakes. The motel is only 10 mins away from the base. Staff is great! Very polite and helpful! Rooms are dated and could use things like flat screen TVs, hair dryers, irons, etc. but room is very spacious and clean! Beds are very comfortable! In short, for $50 bucks... More

I have worked in the hotel/restaurant business for 14 yrs and I have never stayed at a hotel that was so unsanitary. We reserved two rooms for our family, for our son's Navy graduation. There was hair in the beds, hair in the tubs, hair in the folds of the towels. Our stepdaughter and her mom had crusty stains and... More
