We decided to get a room as we were too tired to try and drive home. We have stayed in a lot of Motel 6's as they offer pets to stay for free. What is even better is that this chain of Motels have mostly been updated to vinyl flooring and very simple and clean furniture in every room. This...

I was happy to see that there were no carpets. Saying that, I don't think they made a point to sweep or mop for a while. The AC didn't run real cold for hot July. It had been a long drive and I needed to sleep or I would have made some commotion. It certainly wasn't the most comfortable night....

I was traveling alone and checked in very early in the morning about 1230 or 100am. I requested a non-smoking room. It was the only room on the ground level. (I have a hip problem and no stairs. TMI LOL) Anyway, the room said Non-Smoking but when I walked in, it smelled of smoke. I turned on AC, vents and...

Typically I would not go to this level when a hotel is less than clean or guest accommodations are unsuitable I would just ask that they would re-clean it and change the sheets which I did in this case and not only did they not change the sheets they only change the top sheet I Marked on the bottom ones...

I would skip this place for sure. We waited till the last minute to book rooms and this place seemed to look OK for what was available. Check in was bad, not friendly staff, they spoke to each other more than the people trying to check in. They weren't prepared for people to come in, couldn't tell me when I...

This motel is perfect for guests that are seeing the sights, and just need a clean, decent place to spend the night. The rooms are small, but that is a trademark of the Motel 6 chain. I only had two complaints, at night, shady characters hung around the front of the motel. I had my 19 year old daughter with...

Within being there for 3 hours there was 2 arrest. One guy was sitting on his truck for a long period. Cops finally came and put him in cuffs and searched his vehicle. He either had warrants or something illegal going on. He was taking to jail. About an hour later. A guy kept walking the motel courtyard near the...
