We stayed one night wanting to visit the university prior to homecoming. They charged $122 for what should be a $30 room. Door to the room was difficult to close. We had no hot water in the bathroom sink. Bathroom walls around the trim was torn up. No coffee pot Nastiest pillows I have ever seen. All discolored brown with...

I posted a review regarding this motel just after we stayed. I wanted to let everyone know that the manager called me a liar; Cooperate wouldn't refund the full price of the night--was happy to give me a voucher to stay in a Motel 6 somewhere else. I finally got them to refund half the cost of the worse night...

This Motel was horrid. The room was beyond small. It said no smoking on the door yet the room stunk like smoke. My shirt I slept in stunk of smoke the next day. The bed was horrid, springs sticking through, uncomfortable, small, not sure that the blanket and spread were clean. Come to find the following day there was no...

Was not expecting much from other reviews on here but it was only place available for Graduation weekend. Staff was friendly and that's about all I have good to say. Room was tiny, curtains were slashed or so it looked. Floor had cut marks throughout. Bed was terrible, one small chair in room, and an ashtray with "non smoking room"...

The staff are very friendly, room was clean, price was very cheap. What more could you ask for? It's not a bad place to stay, but it's not going to be an exquisite hotel. It's a place to sleep for the night and catch a shower in the morning.

I have three good things to say: It was cheap, they are pet friendly, and the staff was nice. I usually check trip advisor before I book a hotel. This time I didn't. My main reason for staying here was they are pet friendly. The room looks like 1960's hotel room or and old dorm room. Reminds me of the...

Nothing special, but great price! Shower was for handicap and only way to take a bath was to use the shower head to fill the tub. Awkward and dripped from the top of the shower connection. Had hot water and clean linens and towels.

Some Motel 6s--the renovated ones--are pretty nice. This is definitely NOT one of the renovated ones. I didn't pay much (I think $37-$38) and got even less. I felt uncomfortable in the room, and I'm pretty tough. I'd recommend you not stay here unless your desperate.

The entire motel is a dump. We changed rooms and my husband left an expensive piece of jewelery in the other room when we realized it we went to the office and spoke to Jessica. She told me that she has no way to ever the room and that the manager Tonya went there and looked for my husband earlier...
