For a real bargain of a price, this place has plenty. The rooms are somewhat out of date on style and decor but it still is warm, has nice warm water, and clean sheets/towels. Nothing real bad to say about this place, I'm sure in warmer times the pool would be a nice option to enjoy.

We used this for a quick 2 night getaway, but we spent most of our time with friends away from the motel. Staff was friendly, room was clean except for some scuffed up furniture. Beds were comfortable for the price, and the AC worked well. There is no breakfast, but there are vending machines, but they weren't very stocked. No... More

This was an absolutely horrible experience. We had driven 15 hours to get there (we had a reservation) and were extremely tired and hungry.

Non-smoking room smelled musty. Multiple burn marks in the bed spread indicated perhaps not always a non-smoking room. Multiple stains on the carpet. Poor water pressure in the sink. Antiquated tv, no tissues in the rooms. Everthing had a very "run-down but with a fresh coat of paint to cover-it up" feel to it. Was concerned about no "Do Not... More

This place is beyond help. The rooms, which were "non-smoking" reeked of cigarette smoke. There were burn marks on the bathtub and on both bedspreads. The beds had no support, were ripped,. The rugs were very worn and dirty. Exterior had cobwebs, termites on the stairs, broken cement on the walkways, cigarette butts all over the place. The only thing... More

These people here are really nice! They make you feel welcome and seam to be glad you are there. Motel needs some work but for the price its clean and comfortable. This is not a Marriott, but that is not what your being charged for.

We took a few days and made a weekend trip to Lexington. We always try to stay with Motel 6 as they allow pets. This location is a little old and needs updating, but it was clean and the staff was great! For the price it was just what we needed!
