There are two motel 6 within a block of each other. If you book online and paid in advanced, make sure that you get to the right one. The 4202 East town is located near the East Towne Mall with plenty of parking space. The room is as clean as you might expect from a sort of run down old... More

Worst place I have ever stayed! They don't even have a fridge or microwave in the room. The price was supposed to be one thing but after they added all their extra fees, it was over $20 more (and no I don't mean taxes). Ridiculous price for a pos room!

This is an old hotel that is run down and beat up. Just depressing to be there. Carpets are stained. The outdoor lighting made me very uncomfortable. The many repairs to the walls were done very badly. Slop on spackl and paint.

Came in past 11 pm. Had booked 2 rooms from an external site. Check-in was longer and more involved than any other hotel we've stayed in. They required ID from all adults in the room and even photocopied these. That is the first time we've been required to do that so it felt strange. Not fun when you just want... More

I will say the staff and management was friendly,best customer service ever! The place needs to be updated and management said they were doing a major turnover. Water leaking,mold and carpets were nasty. If you want a nicer looking place this is not for you, I gave it high marks cause the staff went above and beyond.

I was coming in for my nephew's graduation. I was told you better book something soon as the prices will be high for that weekend. When I did a search for a hotel, Motel 6 came up for $50/night. We were looking for a place to just sleep and shower. For the price, the place fits that purpose. Overall, it... More
