What I liked about this hotel is the hotel's staff who helped me to check in fast and explained little things to explore in the city. Also, the location is very good, not too far from Hawthorne and Division street. However, the paid-internet service is very bad. The bed sheets are not as expected. The towels are harsh and not...

You stay here not because of the room but because of the location; it's one of the cheapest places in this location, very centrally located and a couple miles or so from downtown. Shower (no bathtub) is really tiny. Mattress was really thin and pillowcases were a bit too small for the pillow. Spent two nights here around the 4th...

When I booked my room at Hotel 6 for 6/09/2015 I accidentally booked it (online) for 6/08/2015. Of course I was a no show. I did not receive a call from the Motel 6 staff. If I had, we would have discovered pretty quickly that I had made a mistake when I was booking, and that I would be turning...

For the price, one would expect a few more amenities. At $76/night I would have liked to have a bathtub, a fridge, local phonebook, free wifi... The people in the room next to me were smoking marijuana and it was coming into my room from the connecting door,which they were trying to open. When I mentioned this to the maid...

When I'm travelling alone and with my dogs I stay at Motel 6s. As a dog lover it warms my heart to see dogs around and having my own with me is a huge plus. The wifi at this Motel (in fact all Motel 6s) is prehistoric with dial up speeds (0.56 Mbps) and cumbersome login. This is my biggest...

This hotel is fine overall, though I bought everything of value from the car to the room. There were some residential rooms in the hotel that looked pretty bad, with guests of the sort you don't want to be around. Not the most savoury location. But the big problem they have is a dump of strip joint next door. I...

Stay Away. I know it's a Motel 6, and yes, I know it's a 'bargain motel,' but NO… Don't stay here. Trip Advisor is asking me if it's 'charming' or 'romantic' and that makes me cringe. This is an icky place. I should have known by the nearby scummy strip clubs flanking the sides of the parking lot. Or the...

We were surprised to find that we had been allocated a smoking room, despite that fact that when we had booked through booking.com, we had specified a non-smoking room. The room stank of smoke and we could not even remotely reduce it. Even after leaving, our bags and clothes stink of it. The staff are mixed - a couple were...

We had a reservation for three nights but located to another Motel 6 after the first night. Pulling into the parking lot, I had the distinct impression that this was one of those motels where down and out locals stay on a regular basis. We had two room and both smelled bad. We left our bags in the car, opened...
