If you are looking for a 5-star hotel stay, go elsewhere. We stopped here on a road trip for a good night's rest. The hotel was clean and comfortable. It was nothing fancy, but the staff was very friendly. There are a few restaurants nearby, as well as, a gas station. That's about it!

I've been here for a month with my work. This hotel is just on the outskirts of a small small town. It's a nice hotel if you're just passing through the employees are all very nice and parking is easy. The single King room feels very empty and the curtains don't really block the Sun that much being a person...

My truck broke down and we had to stay here unexpectedly. The staff was very accommodating and freindly, especially since most of our belongings were packed in the back of the truck towed away. It was New Years Day and nothing was open.

Stopped there mid 2015 (Just got a trip advisor account now so am catching up). The new folk _completely_ gut rehabbed the previous facility so it's new, clean, and just feels good. Only major annoyance is that it's right off I-80 so there's an occassional LOUD truck. Price point is a bit high for Motel 6 but they can be...

My late wife considered staying at Motel 6 as camping out. To me they seem quite luxurious. This particular Motel 6 is apparently newly renovated and extremely clean. The owner has found a good friend who has been running the joint for the last three months and is doing a bang up job. I was going to do a great...

This is a clean, comfortable, no frills motel with cable TV, free WiFi and friendly staff. It's also pet friendly so don't worry about having to leave your furry companion behind. It's also located in a quiet area so you don't have to worry about your sleep.

Excellent Motel. Quiet,clean, great flatscreen tv and very comfy bed. The manager Dave is a great host was very accommodating and just a nice bloke. Great location just off I 80 at Drums. Was the perfect stopover. Slept like a log. Would recommend.

I'm a big fan of Motel 6. This one was extra excellent! Dave, the manager, is a hard-working, good guy who really came to my rescue. My Saab blew a head gasket with 300 miles to go, and I was in no position to expect a bargain. I was expecting about $65, the usual for a Motel 6 room, when...
