Cheap place to sleep in a pinch but don't plan to stay here otherwise. It's like checking into a dorm. Unorganized reception, corridors dark and dingy and smells of old smoke and Bounce. Room seemed freshly renovated but also smelled of stale smoke. Upon first check in, the trainee gave us a room that had not yet been cleaned. Cleo...

We stayed here because of a low rate. It was a very very basic room. It was non smoking but still smelled of stale smoke. Wi fi was a separate fee. Room was clean and we slept well but the ac was noisy. Towels are not soft. No breakfast but Dennys is very near. So are other restaurants. If you...

Staff friendly with check-in, first room tiles missing in bathroom shower area, room smelled of smoke and I am asthmatic, we went down and at first were told there were no other rooms. Manager switched us to a smaller room that at first smelled ok. By that evening all you could smell was cigarette smoke through the vents. We would...

I couldn't find any other hotels with my budget and location, so I was not expecting too much, but No WiFi, no shampoo, no hair dryer and no tissues. When I got the hotel, one police officer was in the lobby and a interesting front desk staff. The best thing was there is a big shopping mall across the street,...

Everything in the previews reviews I read rang true. You have to pay $3 -5 for internet which is so annoying in 2016. We bought 2 daily codes but in hindsight we wished we had just paid for a hot spot on our cellphone plan. The rooms are fairly clean but the comforters and blankets all had cigarette burns on...

This was a whole different story from my stay in 2014. Made my reservations in April, 2016 and only found out about a week before my trip that they no longer had refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms. Too late to make other plans. Ok, no big deal. Brought a hot plate with me. First I have trouble getting into...

We have been to renovated motel 6 and knew to expect basic comfort but this hotel was awful! Cigarette burns on the comforter and weir smell in the room. Water damages to the floor that left the boards wobbly. Dos are allowed and our neighbor's dig was left alone in the room for hours... and barked the poor thing. Hallways...

Motell 6 has a new manager, she is a great person, very helpful and tries to create miracles. We arrived early, had trouble with our reservation, and on the verge of leaving. BUT in walks the NEW manager Michelle Sandman. This gal did everything to make the problem from Booking.com (which we will NEVER USE AGAIN) go away. And she...
