My daughter and I pulled into Ashland Motel 6 before midnight on the way from Florida to upstate New York, just looking for a clean room for a few hours sleep before continuing north the next day. The clerk was pleasant and checked us in without any problems.
When we opened the door to the room we were immediately hit with a foul odor. Then we found the light switch and the experience degraded from there. Dingy lighting wasn't dim enough to hide the complete wreck that the room was. Headboard from one of the beds had been used to put holes in the wall and was laying loose behind the bed. The base molding was ripped away from the wall and had torn the wall up in the process. That same bed had a deep valley in it and the pillows and linens were threadbare. Someone had pulled some kind of mounting bracket out of the wall and it was sitting on the dresser with wall board dust accompanying it. And did I mention the terrible smell!?
We had no trouble getting our refund, refusing the offer of a different room. We couldn't trust a business that would even think of renting a room like that to anyone. If you decide to give this place a try I hope you have better luck than we did. In all my years of traveling this was the worst room I've ever encountered. My daughter remarked, "We finally found a room that even Dad couldn't sleep in!"
We wound up across the street at Hampton Inn. Twice the price but worth it after the shocker next door.
P.S. We didn't sleep there, but rated Sleep Quality as Terrible since the experience gave me nightmares at the Hampton Inn.
