I stayed for one night in May 2010 with my wife to visit with friends who live in the Albany area, The area is very shady, do not leave any valuables in your car. We requested a non smoking room, but the room smelled like plenty of smoking had taken place there. There were no windows and the only way to air out the stink was to open a glass sliding door which led to the parking lot. That didn't last long since that meant our room was open for everyone outside the hotel and within the parking lot to get a good look at what was inside. There were no amenities, but we didn't mind as we usually don't use the one's provided by hotels.
We had a dinner to get ready for, so after showering we got ready and left. When we returned after mid night, we showered again and before going to bed packed our belongings, determined to get another hotel the next morning. By the time we finally decided to sleep, when we pulled the covers off the bed it was sickening. Both of the double beds had hair, dirt, dead bugs, and stains on the sheets. Literally there was grim and you could feel the dirt. My wife insisted we make the best of it, being so tired from our long drive and night out. It was a very cool night and we slept huddled on top of the covers using only a light jacket my wife had as a "blanket". We got no sleep at all, tossed and turned all night from the cold, and the itchiness, probably from the bed bugs.
In the morning we asked to speak with the manager, we explained our situation and she just shrugged it off as the maids fault. She refused to take responsibility. We didn't expect much of anything from a Motel 6, but what we did expect was a comfortable, clean bed...needless to say our needs were not met. Not worthy of even a rating.
