Driving from Chicago to St Louis in white-out blowing snow, we stopped in Bloomington, Il. The Motel 6 really did save our lives. The delightful person, Chad, who was working the desk, checked us in and recommended the wonderful Mexican restaurant just across the road. In the -20 or so degree weather, we were so happy to have a comfortable...

We had reservations for just one night at the Bloomington/Normal, IL Motel Six during our cross-country trip. However, our hearts sank when we saw the deplorable condition of the hotel. It truly seemed more like a frat house than a hotel. Several entry doors to the central hallway providing access to our room were broken. Our small musty room had...

The room was surprisingly nice and well decorated with plenty of space and hard floors which feel and look much cleaner than carpet. There are plenty of outlets and the bed is comfortable with white bedding (which always shows the true measure of cleanliness). However, there were only two pillows on a king bed and they were flat and almost...

OK, this is the best Motel 6 I have ever stayed in. Really. Nice, clean, updated and it even was a huge room with nice appointments. Still only had the one bar of bath soap with no shampoo but wow, microwave, frig and flat screen for a Motel 6. I like the hardwood floors (no guessing what is in grungy...

Very well kept motel with very large rooms and at a very affordable rate. The motel has an elevator for access to the upper floors. Located across the street from a shopping mall and several places to dine.

We were in town for a wedding. Sometimes Motel 6 is to be avoided. The newly renovated rooms on the third floor were very welcoming, with laminate floors and a modern deco type feel. There was microwave and mini fridge and dining within walking distance. There was no continental breakfast but the room was definitely worth the price of $55.00...

For a college visit we stayed at Motel 6 in Normal (not to be confused with motel 6 in Bloomington which I hear bad thngs about). Typical Motel 6 atmosphere, loud with few ammenities. But the newly remodeled rooms were nicer than you would think. For the cost it was worth staying there.

I made a reservation after seeing all of the horrible reviews because I had to be in town for a cheer competition and the comfort inn had a minimum night stay. This was the closest that I could get to the comfort inn for a decent price (it is literally 2 minutes away). I requested a newly renovated room. When...

This motel should not be in business nor should it be allowed to carry the Motel 6 brand name. It is atrocious. It is filthy. Period. And the room that I checked-into was supposed to be for a non-smoker. But the room just reeked of tobacco and some sort of gross air freshener. There is an obscene drawing (created with...

“On Veterans Parkway, off I-55 at exit 167, this is a good bargain. There are two Motel 6 properties in the Normal-Bloomington area. This one is good.Don't know anything about the other. Ask for a room on the back side of the building away from Veterans Parkway, if possible. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a great dinner at Los Potrillos Mexican restaurant. We could walk there, a great deal with 12 inches of snow and 20+ mile/hr wind.”

“Because of the reviews of other travelers, I selected the third floor. The room was good. I have not checked out rooms on the other floors, although at check in, the clerk asked people staying on other floors if they wanted to look at their room before booking. This seems to indicated a problem with rooms on the lower floors and a lot of complaints.”
