Right from check-in I found myself comparing Motel 6 to La Quinta across the street. I didn't mean to, but you see...I love love love LQ but for $35 less and for only 11 hours I figured I'd give Motel 6 a try. Big mistake.
From being told "all hotels will give away your room" if you don't arrived by a certain time (even though I 100% prepaid for it mere hours before – and never had a problem at other hotels) to the grimy, un-renovated room (very misleading), I was already put off. Add to that playing whack-a-mole with the spotty internet...the constant smell of smoke (especially funny to smell in a non-smoking room), the live action outside of my room past 3am...I had just about had it.
The 1 pro: the water pressure in the shower was beautiful! That was a welcomed surprise. You what wasn't, though? Stepping out of said shower to see my door being opened!!! So I freaked out! Turns out housekeeping can't tell time because they thought it was okay to come into my room at 10:15am when check out is clearly at 11am.
At that point I was done.
I wouldn't wish this place on my worst enemy.
