Had a great experience at this Motel 6 this past weekend. Keep in mind - this is your budget friendly one star motel chain, there weren't any hair dryers or coffee makers in the room. Some people want a 4 star hotel but don't want to pay for it. Decor is plain and simple, and very basic. Wifi is an extra charge.
That being said, I was pleasantly suprised with the cleanliness and friendliness of the staff. I was very tired, had been driving from Philadelphia, and I saw the Motel Six sign high above Route 99. It said "$43.99 per person". Of course, when you see a sign like this, when you actually get to the motel they either no longer offer the rate, the rate is only for Sunday through Thursday, or they sold out of that room that they offer for that price!
However - I called, and the front desk said yep, $43.99. That was a good sign. I was a lone female and I felt nice and safe in this room. There was no mold or cracked grout in the bathroom and the water pressure in the shower was strong and hot. The towels weren't super fluffy but were clean and newer looking, the sheets were crisp and fresh, and the TV worked. And there was HBO. That's basically all I needed for the night!
The hotel was in a nice central spot with a lot of eateries nearby, and what appeared to be a mall across the street. Overall, great experience and my pocketbook didn't cry out in agony either!!
