Reviewed 20 March 2016

Hotel is in a good location with many restaurants within walking distance. Rooms are a good price. but you do have to pay extra for WiFi. Room was clean, but the mattress was not very good. If you have a room on the Wanamaker side, it is somewhat noisy. But overall a good choice for a basic room. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Do not get a room on the Wanamaker side which is noisy.

The rooms are bare bones. No frills. The queen bed has sprung springs. Linens are small and scratchy. There is no in room refrigerator, coffeemaker, or microwave. The television is an old style picture tube vintage. There is no shampoo. The property appears to be frequented by truckers and travelers who fill up their ice chests from one of the two ice makers on the property. There Is No breakfast. Coffee is made available to guests for a limited time only.

The desk clerk on duty, 3:00pm till 11:00 pm, was the worst. I had requested a downstairs room, I even called earlier in the day to make sure it was available, yet when I arrived she tried to put me on the third floor, said there were no rooms available, yet, there were no cars in the parking lot.
The outside of the motel was absolutely the nastiest I have ever seen.
I will definitely not stay at this motel again, and I suggest no one else does either.

Room Tip: check out the room prior to your stay.

We got to Topeka late and stopped at the Super 8 on the corner. $69+tax so we rolled down to Motel 6. It was $47 including tax for two people, two double beds on the ground floor. Cash only--I don't know what was going on with that. The room was very clean and in good condition. The TV was out of date and the remote didn't work. The pillows were better than the last Motel 6 we stayed in. The beds were FIRM. We got up and left early so we weren't terribly disappointed with the room. We don't stay at Motel 6 for frills, we stay there for price and we got the basics (including no hair dryer).

Room Tip: The hotel sits next to a busy road so you might request a room on the backside if the noise of traff...

After hours of driving, we stopped here hoping for a good night sleep. Unfortunately so far this is not the case. We needed a ground level floor due to my husband being a disabled vet. We took a handicap room for our family of 4. There was one bed! Not to mention dirty bathroom, broken heater, and last but not least just pulled the blanket back to realize the sheets were dirty. Will never be staying at another motel 6. I am beyond disgusted. We will be going down the road tonight for a different place as well as disputing this with our back.

I was driving all night, to get to my destination, & I spotted a billboard stating Motel 6 $31. I rolled in there to get a room to sleep for 6 hours & all of a sudden, the price was $46.98. $31 was the weekly rate. So not right. I go to my room & the key won't work. This is after 1AM & I am so tired. I then get transferred to another room. I get in there & it grossly smells of smoke. Great! The sink is plugged up & won't drain. The remote to the TV, which is not a flat screen, does not work either. No ice bucket nor was there a trash can. To top it off, the door doesn't lock. I don't feel safe at all. Great! It's obvious, that they tried to renovate the place with Ikea like furnishings. The place has potential, however, They need to fix the infrastructural chit prior to the fluff. Good luck to anyone that stays here.

Not the best place by fair to stay at here but there wasn't much of a choice during the week of thanksgiving. Rooms are small, t.v.s are outdated and most of all u have to pay for the wifi! Like 3$ for 24 hrs. Rediculous! Located where everything is but needing to be updated badly.
