This hotel was chosen as a last minute getaway. The Hotel is surprisingly nice compared to read reviews. The rooms have been updated and they have hardwood floors! The location is close to area sites..

Check in was simple enough, the WiFi is not free, $2.99 or $4.99 but, when I went to the front desk to get an ice bucket and complained about the condom wrapper......wait for it... I got the internet passcode for free!!!! Not done....could connect but that was it, couldn't get to MSN, Google or anything else! Coffee available in lobby... More

This Motel 6 is just off US 30 and I-65. The motel was very clean, provided plenty of towels and soaps (see my photos), and a very comfortable king bed.

check in was simple, they had my booking on-line & a room allocated for me. The room was in a separate building which you needed a room card to access.

This was a very Spartan room for a cheap price. No toilet seat, hair dryer, facial tissue, fridge or microwave. None of these were promised. The table and chair were cheap by Ikea standards. They worked, just not glamorous. Wifi is $2.99 for one device. The room was in good repair and the laminate floors were cleaner than most carpets... More

Hardwood floors, flat screen TV, and great prices. My husband and I have weekend getaways once or twice a month here for the last 6 months. Scott is the best front desk worker they have. Samantha has an attitude everytime I've interacted with her. The redhead doesn't work well under pressure. We booked two rooms this weekend and decided to... More

The location is one of the newly renovated with flat panel televisions and bed linens. Arrived early and was given a room close to front door. Ice machine was in opposite end of complex, hence quietness. Motel uses interior entry room and promoted a safer feel. Coffee was available at morning departure. Staff was friendly and helpful.

The price was great for what you got. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I liked the laminate flooring in the room much better then typical dingy carpeting. There was a few hairs in the tub but that was overlooked as it can happen. Little tricky how to close the door perhaps was just our room. The room itself... More
