Motel 6 Detroit-Southgate
Ranked #6 of 8 Hotels in Southgate
Reviewed 26 April 2015

Absolutely the worse Motel 6 I have ever stayed. The room was dirty and reeked of cigarette smoke. I witnessed drug use in the parking lot and a loud prostitute occupied the room next to mine. I have given up on Motel 6 after staying at this location.

Room Tip: Stay away from this Motel 6

Went to stay here with my family. Check in, the lobby smells of cigarettes. Drive around to our room, see a drug deal in the parking lot. Open the door to the room...walls are filthy, tubs dirty, smells gross. Go back to the lobby and request a refund and they offer me another room and an upgrade. Head to new room...hair in the sink, candle wax all over the place and identical to the first room. Not sure what kind of upgrade it was. Back to the lobby and get a refund. This place is disgusting.

My family and I were on a budget so we decided to stay at the Motel 6 and it was actually nice. The woman who checked me in was very helpful. The pool was a bit small but it worked out well for my children.

The worse placed we have stayed on our trip so far. Half the lights in the room didn't work or even had light bulbs. Only one set of towels and no little shampoo/ conditioner (collect them for our kids). Tissue box was empty, toilet seat was a differant color then toilet and the bathroom door you had to lift and wrestle with to get it to close. If we weren't so tired from driving we would have gone to a different hotel. Never showeres and checked out in the am so fast.
