Metropolis IL is just across the Ohio River from Paducah KY. There is a Motel 6 in Paducah but this one was the better choice of the two. This one has inner hallway where the one in Paducah had doors to the outside. The pool is open and the price is low. When I arrived the desk manager was busy... More

The staff was very helpful in getting us checked in to the motel. Our room had double queen beds and a fridge which was helpful for a family of 4 returning from Tennessee to Illinois and needing a spot to stop and rest for the night. My daughters enjoyed the pool for awhile before our noon check out.

I booked a room at this hotel using Hotel.com, and I got a great rate, but when I got to the hotel, with my confirmation in hand, I was told by the man at the front desk that they don't accept reservations from Hotels.com and that I would have to pay higher price, and I asked about using my AARP...

We came here for Superman Celebration (2014) and booked here for the pool, having kids a pool was a must have. Checked in, went to ask about the pool. And they said it was shut down!! They could have said that on their website....I would have booked else where. Not happy at all!!!!

The manager went out of his way to make us comfortable on two stays. He was kind and understanding to our needs. I will use this hotel on my next trip through the area. He even went so far as to change our room in the middle of the night due to noise from a truck outside our room.

This hotel looks like it may have been another brand hotel chain before and sometimes I wonder when I say I'm going to stay at one that people are afraid to try it because they equate low price with being a bad hotel.

I dont think you can beat a 49 dollar room for two people and a dog. Rooms are bigger than expected. Beds are comfortable, clean and sheets are pretty soft. And theres an indoor pool. Theres a few resturants very close by and the casino is only a 9 minute drive
