Motel 6 Minneapolis- Brooklyn Center
Ranked #8 of 8 Hotels in Brooklyn Center
Reviewed 16 May 2017 via mobile

I will stay at a cheaper hotel, but not when my kids are with except on this one occassion i didnt have much of a choice. I looked online and saw 2 sets of pics of the rooms. The old outdated kind of motel 6 room, then a newly remodeled room. They were pics from reviewers so i didnt know if it was the location i was at or another. I thought for sure the rooms would be outdated, smelly, and loud neighbors. To my surprise the were very clean, completely updated, and it was pretty quiet. I must say i was rather impressed. Good work

This is my 2nd time staying here, this time i spend more days than before, the front desk people were very nice and the housekeeping folks were super cool, we ask for not room cleaning because of our dogs and they stop at our door just to see if we need towels or something else. Despite the prostitution high traffic and who knows what else is going on at night the place is very OK.

Room Tip: 1st floor has hardwood floors i like that for the dogs

Don't waste your money on this hotel. Pulled up in front of motel and found people standing outside the doors with tools and car jacks asking guests for money. Front desk clerk tried charging me more than i was quoted in my email confirmation. Also told me I had to pay in cash in which I replied I only had my credit card. We go to park and we had people walking around the car. We get into out room and it's dirty. Wet spots on the bed, the toilet handle had feces on it. I went to the desk to let them know we would not be staying and get a refund and a guest brought in a pitbull and it was growling and showing it's teeth. Not once did I hear them ask the guest to take the dog off property.

As soon as my mom and I walked into the lobby, the smell of marijuana was overwhelming. We went to our room and unloaded our things. It was dirty and not even worth the money. The marijuana smell was even stronger. We looked into another hotel and found a great place. We returned to motel 6 and when I explained to the manager why I wanted to check out, he completely shrugged it off as though illegal drug use was just commonplace at his hotel. The only good thing about motel 6 was that I received a refund, but it will take 5-7 days to get. Do not stay here!!!

I made a hurried trip to Minneapolis weekend of the Ryder Cup. Everything was booked solid in town - except for this Motel 6 property. Now I know why. This had to be the poorest excuse for a motel room I have ever encountered. First, I booked a non-smoking room. Forget that. The room stunk like a bingo hall. As for the room itself, I've stayed in cruise ship cabins that were larger. Forget about amenities too. No clock, no shampoo, etc. The soap was questionable as to whether it had been used by a previous guest. Cobwebs hung in both corners above the lumpiest bed I have encountered. I checked the bed for critters and was pleasantly surprised not to find anything crawling. The motel itself is locked down around 8 pm and you have to use your card to get in the main door. The other entrances aren't available. This alone should give some indication of the kind of neighborhood this motel is in. I might add I was pleasantly surprised also to find all the wheels on my car in the morning and that the stereo hadn't been stolen. From my experience, never again a Motel 6 property.

This hotel has residents who live here week-to-week, and they are mostly African American young adults and their families. While the people here are friendly, they - unfortunately - are loud. Children run about the halls in the evening and adults talk loudly in the halls in the middle of the night. No one lowers their voices, and it's very difficult to sleep through the night without someone waking you up. The beds are also cheap and very hard. If you have back problems, as I do, don't book this hotel.

We stayed in room 135 and had many issues.

1. The person who checked us in said that we had a queen sized bed - however it was not a queen, it was a full. When we brought it to her attention she said, "no it's a queen." This was not a queen.

2. We had a broken faucet - if we had stayed only one night it wouldn't have been an issue, but we were staying 3 nights and brushing our teeth in the bathtub just wasn't convenient or acceptable. We brought this to the front desk's attention when we arrived, each day during our trip, and before we left.

3. Towels had stains and hairs practically sewn in.
3.5 Our wet towels were rolled back up to reuse.
3.75 When we put all the towels on the floor the next morning to be replaced, we received no new clean towels.

4. The beds were not made and the floors were not swept at any time while we were there. I don't know if the sheets were new, though they didn't smell bad.

Any one of these offenses is troublesome, but all of them over a three day stay is just unforgivable.

When we checked out we mentioned the lack of maintenance and the lack of positive customer service, and at least we feel that we were heard.
Next time we'll do AirBNB for our Minneapolis trip.
