From a budget business traveler in PA
I needed to travel to the Harrisburg area for a weekend seminar. After reading so many mediocre reviews of moderately priced hotels, I considered Motel 6. I was traveling in the dead of winter, and all I needed was a comfortable bed and a hot shower in the morning. I would spent most of both days at the seminar.
I booked my non-smoking room online. When I arrived, I found a warm, clean room with two queen-sized beds. The room did not smell of smoke at all. Even though I read that Motel 6 is pet friendly, I did not detect any pet smells or see any dog or cat hair in the room.
The bathroom was small but clean. The towels were thin, but I had an adequate supply. The cable TV provided some basics -- sports, weather, news, and a few movies. The mattress gave me a good night's sleep. The next morning I enjoyed a hot shower with good water pressure.
The only negative was that the card key for the room sometimes needed multiple swipes to unlock the door. With a deadbolt and a safety latch, I felt safe. Motel 6 is located close to the turnpike exit but far enough away that I didn't hear any traffic.
The front desk clerk directed me to a nearby gas station where I could fill up at $2.95 per gallon when gas was selling for $3.19 at home. Check-out was quick and easy.
If you're looking for the basics at a great price, consider Motel 6. This was my first experience with this chain, and I would consider them again for a future trip.
