“Cockroach Hotel”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

From the filthy carpets, broken coffee machine (main office), dirty old blanket, broken ice machine, poor mattress and smoky smell (in a non-smoking room) to the four large cockroaches that I killed I would venture to say that this is the worst hotel that I ever stayed in. Motel 6 is not the Hilton and I did not expect it to be, but Motel 6 headquarters should take a look at this place. Take my advice and stay elsewhere.

IF you have to stay at this dump you better have your Glock on the night stand! I have never stayed at a place as unsafe and Nasty in my like. Every room around us was a all night party. Loud trucks and cars in and out all night long parking for a few minutes and then leaving and slamming doors and raising cane. There is no place to park a truck and boat, parking looks nothing like what they show online. BEWARE, DO NOT STAY THERE !!!!!!

I stopped here with my young son on a cross country trip because they accept dogs, and I had stayed in Motel 6's each night of the trip (3 different locals) and all were nice. The room at this Decatur Motel 6 was filthy! I felt like I was going to catch some disease the whole time I was there. The floors were so nasty I didn't want my dog sleeping on them. The bathroom was so dirty I would not let my son take a bath- I didn't even shower. There were brown smudges on the sheets and one of the towels! I laid out one of our own blankets across the bed to sleep on then left it there so I wouldn't bring the contamination with me. To top it off there were creepy people standing out in the parking lot next door watching us and a crack pipe in the flower bed just outside the door to our room. Never, never stay here! I stay in the Decatur area quite often, but I will NEVER even slow down for this motel again!

My daughter and I was on a trip to FL and got tired stopped to get some rest. Inside room there was Pot on the dresser with 2 dirty cups went to a second room and the bathroom door had a huge whole in it. Needless to say we asked for a refund and left. Then the manager has the nerve to send me a generic email apologizing never once asking about specific issues.

Room Tip: "Don't stay Here"

It was cheap, convenient and they take dogs. We just wanted a place to sleep after a long day's drive in pouring rain. We didn't expect much at that price and were not surprised. You could see that an effort had been made to vacuum the ugly, stained and stinky carpet. The sheets reeked of bleach but at least they were washed. The bathroom was clean. All in all a bit on the seedy side but adequate. The real kicker was the crazy woman outside screaming in the middle of the night and talking nonstop at the top of her lungs. I expected the men in white coats any time. After a while someone (owner? manager?) did come and tell her to leave. It took a while for the commotion to cease but it finally did.

Room Tip: Drive on and don't eat at the Shell station next door (they do serve food strangely)

I am the lady that the manager tried to open her door at 3:00am. I am still having bad dreams about this incident . He knew a single woman was registered in that room! What were his intentions? He is one sorry example for a manager!! If I hadn't had the door latched over what would have happened? I don't want to meet my end at the Motel 6 in Decatur,Alabama! Get rid of him! He is a danger! I should have called the Police and lodged a complaint at the very least. Avoid this hotel!!!
