Seemed like a nice hotel at check in but very outdated, beds were very uncomfortable and low to the ground. Piece of metal sticking out of the bed that I caught my leg on when I went to open the curtains. Will not stay here again!

Very friendly staff who were very accommodating.
Confusion with new computer system though, made me nervous about our reservation coming from out of province. Called to confirm our reservation a few times and it was wrong each time, was finally able to sort everything out and was reassured the reservation would be correct upon arrival. Check in was easy and again staff was very friendly!
Room was very small. We searched the room high and Low to ensure there were no bed bugs and there weren't. But there were dead spiders in the corner (x2) and a large stain on the carpet we hope was red wine (not blood). There was a cigarette burn on comforter and it's supposed to be smoke free. Wouldn't stay again and only stayed because nothing else was available in the city. For the price you could definitely get something nicer if there are rooms available else where in the city.

We stayed at this hotel twice...first time in mid May 2017, for one night, where we used it as a meeting place for our team prior to a long distance team race (we had multiple people coming from different locations, and we needed a location close to the event site that worked for everyone).

As a one night, late-night arrival / early morning departure, it worked well.

PRO: the front desk staff had no problems with two of our team members leaving their cars in the parking lot over the weekend. CON: the front desk staff didn't want to know which cars they were, which suggests that they don't actually pay any attention to the parking lot.

Our second stay was in late June 2017, where we stayed for two nights. When we checked in there was a rather loud, obnoxious group of guests chatting and drinking in the corridor...and the sheets on the bed didn't appear to have been changed from the previous guests. We asked for new sheets, and were given a new room, which, thankfully, had clean sheets, and which, thankfully, was at the opposite end of the hotel from the large group.

The room was functional, it had a fridge and microwave, and everything worked, but it was small, cramped, a bit dark, and the beds were not that comfortable, which is not great when you're trying to get a good night of sleep prior to a race.

We'll be looking at slightly more upscale accommodation for the next extended stay.

Tired after being busy all day and on the way to Ottawa. Called a few inexpensive motels, all booked! Motel 6 was on the way we were going. We had to stop - all too tired.
When I called from the car, said there was vacancy, could not really hear him, so reserved it.
$150!!!!!!!
Motel 6!!!!!
$150!!!!!!
The room is not clean, the top blankets stained. No coffee machine In the room.
We needed two doubles, got that, but one had no frame! The box spring was directly on the floor.
The bathroom was clean and recently renovated.
We would never stay here again. I have contacted head office and am looking forward to their reply.

So Motel 6 is a well known chain and has been for decades. It is no frills, it is clean, it is inexpensive, there is no pool or bellman service, no fancy lobby with leather sofas...everyone should know this by now. So, for a clean and modern - not fancy but modern room at the best price in town - this place delivers. Staff were very friendly on check in and check out. Liked the temperature control as it is a thermostat, not one of those wall mounted things in most hotels that it is either off or you struggle to find a temperature you like all night.

is it a 4 star motel? Of course not, it is MOTEL 6 - but it gets 4 thumbs up from me as it delivers on exactly what it promises. if you want a pool go elsewhere, if you want fancy amenities, go elsewhere..but go elsewhere and pay a lot more.
I needed a clean room and a good night sleep before meetings the next day at a very fair price - that is exactly what I got.
Also, Timmy Ho's just down the street.

Room Tip: suggest away from elevator as it seemed loud stopping except when in lobby
