This our second stay and both times have been really good. The rooms are fresh (no musty smells) and remodeled and the property is well kept. Our room this time was large and had a separate vanity area and walk-in shower - unexpected at Motel 6! The price is always right here, too!

I reserved a disabled room, and when I checked in I was told there were only 2nd floor rooms. Reserved a smoking room, there were only non-smoking rooms, but no ashtrays outside for ashes, cigarette butts, etc. Continental breakfast was advertised, but I was forced to wait outside in the cold, while I was handed coffee...that was "breakfast". Finally, I...

After getting a $90+ quote from Days Inn, I called this Motel 6 and got a room for $65+ I do not know how this relates to any other rooms in the area. But overall I thought it was a reasonable value. Check-in was quick and efficient. They have (only) coffee in the morning and a 15% discount at the...

Typical cheap "Newly" designed modern rooms were at least clean. Labor Day weekend rate at $179 a night. Bad towels, bad bedding, bad service. All expected. But at $179 a night they could afford to have someone at the desk in the morning and could afford to put out some pastries out for their guests since all 200 rooms were...

Retro style Hanging Racks for clothing and Banquets or Modern Wood Chairs. Bathrooms have been upgraded with granite and sparkling glass shower stalls. Also upgraded wider devorative molding.

We stayed here for just the one night in passing. The service checking in and out was amazing! So helpful to the point where I didn't need to ask anything and everything had been covered. We were given one of the newly refurbished rooms which was basic but clean and minimalistic. It was very spacious, almost echoey! There was a...

We had reservations here, but we actually didn't stay the night. On the positive side, the ONE person they had working that day was very friendly, although spread way too thin. The motel has undergone some remodeling, and you can tell an effort has been made to make it look nice. The bad stuff: very sketchy neighborhood. Several homeless milling...
