This has to be one of the nicest Motel 6's I have stayed in! The exterior was in great shape, grounds were clean, parking close to every room..more of an apartment complex feel. The staff was super helpful, friendly and went above and beyond to accommodate us all ..on the second day of our stay, our air conditioner went completely...

Sleep in your car instead of going to motel 6. Smoke filled rooms rowdy neighbors drinking smoking doing who knows what. Manager behind bullet proof glass a good call. Room so old dirty didn't want to shower. TV and phone at least 30 yrs old. Check for bed bugs.

My wife and I were very concerned about getting a room for parent's weekend. We called hotel several times to reserve a room. We were waiting for our email confirmation, but none ever came. I called and spoke to Jennifer. She was very courteous and took the time to locate our reservation. Our name was spelled wrong. She was extremely...

Price was good. Parking right in front of room is always good. Carpet has been replaced with vinyl. some updates in room. Now the bad: in spite of signs on all doors that 'smoking prohibited by state law,' room smelled smoky and dodgy roomers on either side were seen openly smoking and going in and out of their rooms. Very...

Bed was clean and the AC worked very well! However, the room was very dated and worn while there were dead bugs in the corner and quite a bit of hair on the sink, floors, and in shower. I'm not too squeamish so this didn't bother me so much but not everyone may be able to stay in place like...

First of all, I have stayed at this same Motel 6 several times over the last 4 years. I want to personally thank Jessica for making sure that if I wasn't happy with my room then she would change it for me without any problems. I asked for a non smoking room and she told me that they are all...

Location was great, the room reeked of smoke. Could not sleep. could not stay another night. Bedspread had burn holes in it. If you go there get another place to stay.Service was good but not worth the smell of the room. We had a handicapped room and there were plenty of bars around the tub but not a walk in...

Jessica assisted me with checking in. She was not only helpful with my check in, she also assisted me with my questions and concerns about future bookings. Jessica made my stay all the more pleasant. I will go back because of the excellent service I received from Jessica.

Being that we were coming into town late after driving 11 hours and getting up early to leave, we thought we could crash at an inexpensive place that would "leave the light on for you". We were horribly wrong. These Motel 6 lights should be turned off, permanently. I have literally never seen a motel this bad. After checking-in within...
