Yes, granted this is a budget hotel so expectations were already low given the lack of options due to a surge weekend. Plus we knew we wouldn't be in the rooms that much for the weekend. But the inadequacies went much deeper than the pricing as it relates to no shampoo or conditioner supplied. We booked 6 rooms for my...

It was clean. It stank of disinfectant, air conditioner didn't work. I had to (try to) sleep with a wet wash cloth over my face to keep my nose and eyes from burning. Unfortunately it was the last room and we were a late arrival and too exhausted to go find another place. Next time I'll sleep in the car.

First of all, I understand that this was a budget hotel but it seriously gave me the creeps. It was TOO clean. As if something bad happened and the place was doused in bleach. The clientele was questionable. The hotel had no sense of homey-ness and was extremely sterile. It felt like a hospital/prison/seniors home. We stayed only long enough...

It had been a long time since I stayed in a Motel 6, but this one gets decent reviews, so I gave it a try. The rate was good, of course. The motel was clean, the room was a decent size, and it was very clean. The bed was comfortable (know that it's low, if you have bad knees), and...

This had everything you'd expect from the standard motel 6 brand - smallish room but clean, modern and practical. Lacking in extra blankets (I could have asked for more but it was in the middle of the night!) but the pillow was the best I've ever had in a motel! The major downside was the occupants of the room above...

Came to Portsmouth to nurse my daughter back to health after surgery, thought this hotel would work, wrong. Hallway smelled of stale smoke, room was so basic, there was not even a clock. Towels were like sandpaper No shampoo Laminate floor throughout the room Pretty basic

I made reservations at this Motel 6. When I showed up (in the middle of a blizzard), the girl at the desk (greasy looking spiked dyed blonde hair) asked me for my ID. I realized I had left it at home. She then proceeded to lecture me in a very condescending manner about the hotel policies about needing an ID,...

Nice rooms for a overnight. I would stay again.Rooms were clean. Staff was friendly. Affordable price as well. Bear the mall. And not far from the highway. Easy access to both of them. Not far from Pease air force base

I felt like I was in a college dorm room. Very bare, minimal furniture, cafeteria type chairs. Also, sounds carried throughout the motel especially from person thumping around upstairs, hallways and outside. Best price but you get what you pay for. Room was clean
