Arrived at Motel 6 Bangor ME around 10:30 pm tired after a day of travel and shopping. Had booked for two nights and just wanted to get some sleep. We had a uneasy feeling when checking in as the area was not clean and we were told the room with the queen size bed smelled like dog. Being tired we took the double bed and made our way up the stairs to the room from hell. Inside the room, the carpet was filthy (our sock feet stuck to it), The bathroom was dirty and there were several hairs floating in the toilet bowl. I wish we had just checked out then. We decided to check the bed and OMG --- the threadbare comforter had brown stains on the underside. The grey blanket could not have been thinner and the folded down part had multiple round holes which looked like cigarette burns. One of the pillows had a dry brown stain----puke maybe? The sheet had a huge dark brown stain which got lighter towards the edges. It was dry also and had soaked through the mattress pad. My wife got sick at this point. We took the pillowcase and sheet to the front desk. The clerk, though he said he was sorry, did not seem shocked at the situation. We did not stay the night and were given a refund. The clerk did NOT offer to find us another place to stay. All we got was a list of hotels and their phone numbers. We drove to the Ramada and although they had no rooms available as was the case with most hotels -- a concert in town--- their clerk made numerous calls until she found us a room. THANK YOU RAMADA!!!!!!! I am a professional entertainer and have traveled North America for the past 30 + years and I have NEVER encountered anything that comes close to my experience at Motel 6. I also own a travel agency . I would NOT stay at Motel 6 in Bangor if they paid me. If it were up to me, I would have a 6 foot barrier around the property to protect those passing by when the doors opened .After you fill in their survey, good luck trying to get in touch with someone from head office.
Someone should check this property and close the doors until things are brought to at least minimum standards. We love Bangor and we love the people. This property is a black-eye to the town and the state.
