This is my first stay in any Motel 6. Only thing I like was for fake hardwood floors, i.e cleanness of floor. You can buy whole furniture for the room for less than $50. Sink has cracks in it. I don't know Motel 6 franchise inspects there hotels for compliance etc. Changing TV channels with long pauses makes you turn... More

This motel was clean and comfortable. The price was right! Staff was very accommodating to our change of plans. The only complaint I have is the lack of amenities....this place went to the extreme of charging us for sub-standard wi-fi! No shampoo or lotion, hair dryer had to be requested at the office. No continental breakfast provided.

The hotel is on a backroad- hard to find. The office is on the side of the building facing the road. You have to park and walk to the office (not a good idea in cold or wet weather). The checkin was ok. The room was ok. No phone, no alarm clock, no fridg/microwave, soap but nothing else. The TV... More

After tracking for 7 hours to see a doctor after having back surgery, this is not the hotel. The room was bee uncomfortable. I only had a wooden chair to sit in. I had to alternate from bed to chair a lot. So upon waking I am hurting real bad. I am glad I remembered my shampoo and conditioner. They... More

I was a little surprised that it was on a backroad, rather than the main one. It is was not the easiest to find, but not impossible since I used GPS. I expected it to be quieter than it was, but I could still hear the highway, though maybe not as bad as others I have been in. It is... More

Very clean rooms with very friendly staff. Located right off the freeway but not at all noisy. Located just a couple of blocks from a great bbq restaurant with a drive thru window you can get the food & take it to your room. Homemade cheese muffins & home cut fries with the BEST BBQ meats you can buy!

A nice, clean budget hotel. I would stay here again. Cheap and friendly option just a few minutes from all the action. Didn't feel like a motel 6. Shampoo would be nice in the rooms though! That's my only issue.

i admit that this is a budget chain, but they do have standards and this location just needs to be completely remodeled. What was once a Red Roof, this property does not look like it has ever been updated. The staff was friendly enough, but they could no make up for the dreadful rooms.
