Reviewed 24 December 2007

We stayed at this hotel last year at Christmas. It was ok...overpriced. They were doing construction on the building and were really loud. There was a man in the office complaing that someone had stole his lady friends money. We needed a quick hotel and it worked but wouldn't plan on staying there again.

Stayed: December 2006

My Daughter and I spent 4 days, there after Labor Day, with her dog, and had a Wonderful time.
The weather was fine, and the water was warm and calm.
I plan on going back in a month for a few more early fall days.

This is my third time to stay at this Motel 6 and it is the only motel I have ever stayed in that I actually got some sleep. No loud doors slamming, no people coming and going all hours of the night. It is also in a good location and easy to find. Room was clean and everything worked properly. However I would agree that the employees should speak better English. Hard to understand but friendly. Will stay again....

it was terrible. i hated it. it smelled horrible.i didn't want to take a shower. it smelled like a monkey's butt. the only thing that would make this hotel some what good is if you were staying with a really hott greek god. like that would ever happen. the service was terrible. all the workers couldn't speak english and they couldn't give me directions anywhere. it tells me that they don't care much about where their workers come from because i think they just picked them up off the streets of Mexico. this place was awful. please don't ever stay there. ever. i think it was haunted by the people that died in the hotel because of the bad smell. i'm telling you not to stay there. please.

My dh and I usually stay in Motel 6's for the value. This was no exception. The location is great. Right across the street from the beaches and lots of restaurants nearby. The room was very simple and clean. Nothing special, but I guess that's what you pay for. Everything worked except for the remote control. When were on vacation, we don't spend much time in the motel anyway. Were too busy swimming and doing stuff. It's basically just a place to shower and sleep, and this Motel 6 does the job. If your one to spend lots of time in your hotel room, then you might want something more extravagant, but for $60 bucks a night, it's really not bad. Free coffee too!

Oh, and about that picture...it's just a general pic for Motel 6. It does not represent the actual place you'll be staying.

My fiancee and I stayed at the Motel 6 in Destin the weekend of August 7,8, & 9. We paid for our room online through orbitz. We were happy to see the great location and price. When we arrived to check in the parking lot was filled with lots of shady looking men standing around staring at us. Then once we went in to pick up our keys the price mysteriously jumped up $20 a night from what we had paid online. Needing a place to sleep we went ahead and paid. The room had no amenities and the floor was dirty. Our neighbor was nice but her neighbor had cases on top of cases of empty beer cans stacked into a beer-a-mid right by the window. That was the second clue as to what kind of night we were in for. Later that night around 4:00AM the whole parking lot as well as our second floor balcony became party central. The loud music and construction workers with the girlfriends they had made that night at the bar continued to blast until dawn. Not one apology was given . We will never stay there again, nor advise anyone else to.
