“Clean, pleasant, well-located value”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

Older, single story, 100-plus-room motel at State St.&I94 south of UM. Remodeled 3 years ago to new Motel 6 design; remodel pretty well done. Property was clean, though I'm told the wood-look tile floors which can't be fully cleaned are to be replaced, which is good. Staff was very nice; security was good, ingress and egress not bad. I was here 3 nights visiting and felt this to be decent, well-located, relatively inexpensive spot that was what I expect. Hey, it's a Motel 6 folks! (Gotta quit with this silly $3, coded wifi!)

Stayed at this motel for 2 nights. The room looked nice, is newly updated and the staff was great. but it wasn't as clean as I expected. There was a really bad mildewy smell in the bathroom, room itself strongly smelled of old cigarettes even though establishment is non smoking. On top of that it doesn't appear the upkeep is that great, stained sheets, dirt and dust on floors and furniture. If it would've felt more clean and kept and smelled tolerable, it would have been an awesome place to stay.

My family and I arrived about 1130 pm, tired and just ready to go to sleep. The front reception area - the main counter was closed, large shutter pulled down and closed. A smaller window (the type with bullet proof glass was open. There was a nice large screen tv playing a movie while we waited for the associate to help us. After about 10 seconds standing there, realized this was a..let me put it nicely...an adult movie playing on the large screen tv while I'm standing there with my son. I was mortified! I quickly asked the associate - what is this playing, you need to turn the tv! He mumbled something and went about doing what he was doing. I had to further express my moritification and tell him this is strongly offensive and to turn it or shut it off! Once we got through that and got to the room, two beds - the top comforter was VERY stained and cigarette stained - after what we just saw on the tv, ew...there were several hairs in my bed, my son's was ok... I put towels over everything, slept about 6 hrs and got the heck out of there. The room smelled clean and the rest of it was ok, if the sheets had not had hairs and the comforters not stained, and not have seen what we saw (need to wash my eyes) - it would have been ok place to crash for the night. There's no shampoo or conditioner, no hair dryer, which I was unaware of. I mean, who doesn't at least supply shampoo/conditioner these days? I did advise the morning staff of the experience and they apologized and the corporate office has been made aware. BTW - nice proximity to Mcdonalds to grab a quick bite to eat.

I will never revisit motel 6. There were insect on the walls, in the shower. There was no complementary soap/towels. There were cigarette holes in the ground. The pool was green. And worst of all a lady said "are you staying here. Because my wallet was stolen here with all my information/credit card"

Large room with flat-screen TV. No thrill motel with no thrill services - no breakfast, no hair dryer in room and no free wi-fi. There is not even in-room coffee maker. However, the room and washroom is clean. You can park right outside your room so it is convenient to move your luggage.

I have traveled across the country and stayed in hundreds of motels and this is one of the best deals of the lot. 

The rooms have recently been completely renovated and now have this ultra modern, spotlessly clean feel. Big flat screen built into the wall, refreshing paint scheme and the sink might as well be straight out of a spaceship. Unlike with some other Motel 6's, there weren't even any rough clientele in sight, just a bunch of peaceful families. The lady at the desk was surprisingly friendly and helpful. 

This is without a doubt the best place to stay in Ann Arbor, unless you're happy throwing away a few hundred to stay in one of the hotels. The rooms at this Motel 6 are even 100x better than most of the more moderate range motels I've stayed in, such as Super 8, Days Inn, Travelodge, etc. There is a McDonalds less than a minute walk away. 

Summary: Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant. Good work Motel 6
