12 hours on the road and exhausted. Motel 6 usually good, but not this place. No hot water. Also worried about the safety of my car. We couldn't wait until checkout. I may not submit a review, in the future, because too wordy.

I was driving 12 hours so decided to stop for the night after 8, that way I could relax with my dog and stretch out before continuing...I realize I was almost there but with traffic and the bridges of the NY, NJ area we all love I surrendered to the bed. Finding a pet friendly hotel is difficult enough, much... More

After a very long drive, my family checked in to this Motel 6. The lady at the front desk was very pushy, but ended up getting us a room. The room was just that... a room with a bed, no clock, no kleenex, no shampoo and towels were stained and rough... not one amenity, but at least the air conditioner... More

My husband and I decided to stay at this motel for the night because he was bowling in a tournament at the bowling alley about 5 minutes away. After reading the reviews, I went ahead and decided to stay considering some reviews go by the quality of the room. I knew it wouldn't be fancy but this place seriously needs... More

I stayed at thjis hotel for business. It was very affordable but the room was not so good. There was very Limited breakfast choice. The hotel was not professional. Wished I had stayed at the place across the street. Would have been better.

I was staying in New Brunswick for an interview. I typically go for deals and have stayed at a HoJo's before, but not in this poor of condition.

My stay at this hotel was horrible. I was in a non-smoking room and there were multiple cigarette butt holes in my blanket. The smell of the room was terrible as well. Overall I was dissatisfied with my stay at this hotel. I almost left it was so bad. I would not stay here again.

This place is VERY tired. The room smelled musty, the balcony wasn't accessible because the door was nailed shut and there was no plug in the sink. The "breakfast" was two types of cereal, a few pastries and they didn't provide cream for coffee, just milk (I asked). They appear to have numerous live-in tenants who shuffled into the breakfast...

I was a bit wary of staying here after reading the reviews; but since I try to travel on a budget, i took a chance and stayed here. This stay was free, as I used my Wyndham Rewards points. OK, the property is old, and there are tube TV's. I also didn't stay for the breakfast. My take on the... More
