Made reservations weeks ago for a very busy convention right across the street and they didn't have it when I confirmed. They took my credit card to reserve the room but he had no reservation for me. He told me it's my fault because I didn't have a confirmation number for him. He began YELLING at me that he doesn't... More

Stayed Sep 3rd - I should have looked here before booking!!!! Motel room door would not open properly from outside. You had to work with it to get it to open. Room had strong, horrible smell of cigarette smoke, and we are non-smokers and it was a non-smoking room, and it smelled disgusting. I could not get the door to... More

OK... so the location is perfect for an event at the downtown Convention Centers. But $260 (including tax) for 2 nights at a Motel 6? Seriously? I wasn't expecting Shangra-La. Motel 6 is definitely "bare-bones." But these units were shabby. And smelly. No pool. Towel bar not securely fastened to the wall. Exhaust fan inoperative. Strange opening in the wall... More

Room felt dirty, ratty broken furniture, NOTHING WORKED RIGHT, or barely worked. Nothing. Phone, microwave, tv, remote, shower faucet ect.. all worked like junk. The grounds were badly unkept, trash overflowing in dumpster area, not to mention the smell coming from it. Open paint cans left out, caution tape on display outside. Worst hotel experience yet.. Hope I saved someone... More

The rooms were filthy. Smelled like smoke. There was so much damage to the room. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting. It seems appealing as a centrally located place at an affordable price. I've stayed at motels before and never had an experience where everything was as filthy as this place.

Well I booked this for a week thinking it would be a good hotel for an affordable price.... A/C cuts out all the time, found black mold in the shower. Housekeeping does not change bed linens - had a stain from food on a pillow and they flipped over the pillow so the stain was not visible. Oh and the... More

Disgusting- shame on you Motel 6 for allowing these rooms to be rented out in the condition they're in. I am disgusted with this place and will have serious considerations of ever staying at a Motel 6 ever again.

I booked this place for a week while attending a conference at the convention center. I was excited because of the great location; within walking distance to the convention center and a few restaurants. However, the room was terrible!!! There was black mold in the shower, the toilet would not stop running, and it was leaking water on the floor.... More

Concerned about the area but our room was situated on the back corner on the second floor of the third and farthest building from the office. It was quiet and clean. The wood laminate floors, modern towel holders in the bathroom and corner shower added to the sleek and clean feel of the place. Ask for a non-smoking room and... More
