This location was downtown and not very kid friendly. The room was semi-clean. The blanket on the bed was stained in multiple places and there was a dead coach roach on the floor. The floors were hardwood and it was nice to not worry about a spill as you could just wipe it up. I would have appreciated a broom...

Great location close to all the fun stuff and the hook line and sinker is the price, well let me tell you being frugal isn't always good. ROACHES, SON WAS VERY RUDE, Dirty 1/2 finished room, blood on shower curtain, refused to put clean bedding or a clean shower curtain. Pathetic excuse for even a hostel (pretty close) drug dealing...

I set up a room block for an event that was held just down the street. I read reviews of the location, and many of them were poor. But since I stay as hostels sometimes when I travel, and I am former military, I figured it couldn't be that bad. The room was actually not bad. The towels were disgusting,...

We got in late and booked a room for 2 nights as my dad was at the hospital just around the corner. We got to our room and it had a horrible smell. The water in the bathroom in the tub ran all night. The floor was sticky. We checked out the next morning. If I could give negative stars...

This hotel was in a great location. Close to restaurants and market area and walking distance to the river walk. Hotel was clean and it had two full beds. It was a family trip. Do not recommend to go around X-mas, it was very pack and you don't enjoy the walk.

A few things about this hotel that are good before I get to the not so good. It's super close to certain bars I frequent and you can easily walk to and from them. It's also under $50 per night and for being this convenient that's a steal. Now for the not so good. They recently renovated after taking over...

This was not the worst stay we have had in a Motel 6. We were a little skeptical after reading the reviews but decided to take he chance, as this one was cheap, close to town and we were traveling with our dog, so Motel 6's are usually our go to. Other than what I can only assume was a...

Stayed there one night. Rate was super cheap, owners/staff were nice. Parking was a breeze. But woke up to this. I can only imagine what would cause this. I am crossing my fingers and hoping whatever bit me was killed when I took a shower and washed everything in hot water.

As a child, my family always stayed in Motel 6 when traveling, so I have continued the tradition. Normally I find the conditions adequate and, with the new renovations, the accommodations are frequently better than expected. I traveled to San Antonio from Virginia, staying in a Motel 6 in Montgomery, AL which was very nice. While the room was small,...
