“Disappointed!!”
Reviewed 6 May 2011

One of the reviews said this hotel had been "recently refurbished". Apparently we stayed in a room that hadn't been refurbished yet. Several floor tiles in the bathroom area were loose. The sink didn't have a stopper and the water drained very slowly. The carpet was ragged and filthy. The bottoms of my white socks were literally black after walking around awhile. I've stayed in other Motel 6's previously and was always very well satisfied but this place is a dump! There is a La Quinta right behind this Motel 6. Take our advice and pay a little more money to stay there.

Room Tip: Pick another hotel!!

We stayed one night at this Motel 6. I stored a piece of luggage under the bathroom counter. In the morning we discovered that the pipe below the sink had been leaking quite a lot, and my bag was soaked! I asked to speak to the management when checking out, and somebody was called, but had still not shown up after about a ten minute wait, and we had to leave. So I complained about this problem on the Motel 6 website and got nothing more than a letter of apology.
This is also an extremely noisy location, with very loud freeway traffic right next to the motel.

everything in the room was clean and rather new- the carpeting, furniture, etc. the tv had 70 channels, unusual for a motel 6. some of the rooms had a microwave and fridge at no extra charge, also unusual for a motel 6. but there was no towel or luggage rack. and one morning there was no clerk in the office and no coffee. it's located on a highway so you get the usual traffic noise.

Advertised as completely refurbisned and in fact it is NOT. If you consider painting and a few items as such then it is. I had 2 rooms for 3 nights each May 7-10. Rooms clean but not all it should have been. Vanity faucet not mounted (loose). Shower head plugged up. Carpet ragged at edge of bath doorway. No facial tissue. If this is refurbished so be it BUT I don't think so. We enjoyed our stay as I fixed the shower myself. I consider refurbished includes everything is new this is NOT. Had to re-charge our key card 3 times. People at the desk is very friendly. TV good, beds good, quiet good, location excellent and price excellent.

For an overnight stop while traveling hard to beat. Inexpensive,easy to access, and a great bed (terrible pillows). Staff very pleasant and efficient.

Reviewed 18 July 2009

We'd been driving most of the day and were just looking for an inexpensive place to stay for the night. The exit before this offered a nice selection of hotels but all were in the hundred dollar range. This was a clean room with two beds and no noisy neighbors for forty-four dollars. No pool or game room but we didn't need one. The ice machine was easily accessible and we were able to park right by our door. The only negative was that there were no kleenxes in the room, but there was a space for them in the countertop.

Outside of buildings were falling apart, reserved the room via the internet in advance and was shocked at the condition. First room given, toilet did not flush, patch holes in walls, mold growing on wall, musty smell. Second room given, screws missing in main door hinge so the door had to be held up to close, AC unit did not work, tub dirty and smelled terrible. Front desk staff ran charge even though we refused to accept the rooms. and assured credit would be immediately refunded and was not. Drove over 100 miles and had to return home due to no vacancys to stay in the area. Ruined a family trip and will NEVER stay at this hotel chain again.
