I stayed here while working there from out of town.Super ghetto!Drug dealers and addict infested.Every time you go outside,some thug is asking for beer,money,or ciggerettes.NO room service at ALL.The maids actually sling full bags of garbage from the top floor,to a garbage bin thats next to customers cars.Yes they miss the bin ALOT.The staff makes it even worse.The big,black,lesbian mgr.,will tell you where you can go,if you got anything to say about how they be runnin it there.The 1-800# is useless! You wait for over an hour on hold.And when you complain,they say they will resolve the problem,but they dont.This place is like paying to spend the night in a loud,uncouth penetentiary.Lots of nearby motels thats cheaper,and care about their customers.

I dont know where to start,no room service,you pay for Wifi that doesn't work,rude staff,and I think the maids are doing there job to live there. IT IS NOT WORTH THE $25 I SPENT PER NIGHT,I thought I would never say that about a motel.Staff and management needs to be replaced!

Room tip: Paid Wifi but no Wifi they just charge you for it but put your laptop away,it does not work!!

For the $30 price I should have known better, but we were traveling with our dog and had few options. I'm not new to the Motel 6 experience or Super 8 for that matter, but this property represents the lowest possible lodging option available anywhere. Please understand that my rhetoric below is not an exaggeration. The room smelled like a overly used cat litter box upon which people extinguished cigarettes. A chemical and stale tobacco odor was so pronounced that we finally left in the middle of the night due to nausea.

As for other details the metal doors are horribly warped so they are loud opening and closing. And this price point encouraged many people who operate various businesses from the property. I heard knocking next door every half hour or so throughout the night. The walls were the customary balsa wood you find in a low end property. The sheets and mattresses were worn to the fact it just felt slimy being in the room. It was far from comical as we drove 10 hours to get to the their and had several hours the next day to complete our journey. Following this note, I am alerting the Dothan Health Department as the fumes in the room could not be up to code. It is possible they used exterior pain on the inside to try to mask the odor but instead the combination is a noxious off-gas. Do not stay at this property if you're looking for a clean, quiet room for the night.

Room tip: Do not stay here.

Usually, my husband and I will stay somewhere in Dothan on our way to Florida (we have two kids who are not great in the car for hours and hours on end.) We were tired and the other two hotels we checked could not accommodate us. My husband says, "Oh, it will be fine. You just need a place to sleep for a few hours and then we'll be on our way, again."

We got there and I asked the lady for a room. She had issues checking me in. We pull around to go into our room and there is a big truck parked on that side. The people woman in the driver's seat was either high or incredible drunk. It was so obvious that I made my children get out on the opposite side of the car from her. Profanity spewed out of her mouth every other word. I know they staff could not really do anything about this...unless they were paying attention and then they could have told her to leave.

We get into the room and it's what you expect for around $40 per night...shabby decor.

I checked the pillows, sheets and comforter back to check for bed bugs and did NOT find any.

The ENTIRE property reeked of cigarette smoke and we were in a "non-smoking" room.

The room smelled musty and as if it had not been occupied for a while.

The toilet was stained. The counter was broken.

The carpet was filthy and I don't think it had EVER been cleaned. I would not walk (or let the kids) walk around without shoes. I refused to even use the shower because God only knows what you couldn't see there!

Normally, I'll sleep as long as possible the next morning and check out at the last minute. This trip? I barely slept at all, for fear that something would crawl on me and since I was already up at 5...took a baby wipe bath and hauled butt away as fast as was, close to legal.

As a "poor college student" I've stayed in places in this price range before but this was the dirtiest, most horrible place ever.

Never again will I stay in a Motel 6. I will sleep in my car first.

No, my husband will never be able to talk me into something like this again. Ever!

Room tip: Go somewhere else!
