“Only as a last resort”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Cons: They were over-priced for the quality of room. ($69.00 for one.) The room stank of cigarette smoke. I could hear my neighbor and their TV until they went to bed. People kept smoking outside my room which was drawn in by the a/c unit. The toilet and bathtub had cirgarette burns on them. There were scratches on the toilet seat that appeared to have come from a sewer snake, used to unclog sewers. The furiture was worn. The microwave was missing. The bed spreads looked like they were off the Brady Bunch. The building was angled so that the booming of 18-wheelers going over the interstate bridge sounded like thunder or someone stomping on the floors.
Pros: They had rooms when everyone else was sold out due to an event at Perdue. The bed sheets were clean. The plumbing worked. The area was nice. Food and shopping were very close. The free WIFI worked well.
I would prefer to never darken their doorstep again but they did say they are about to remodel.

Room Tip: Best Tip: Book with someone else way ahead of time if Perdue is in session.

Where do I start with this hotel. Well to begin we booked a room with two beds and the confirmation said we could check in at 1. Of course when we show up at 1:30 we are told that there is only one room and it won't be ready for another hour. Then we get to the room. The window on the outside of the room was broken. Then when we get inside, despite all the no smoking signs all around the hotel, and the room smells like four chain smokers spent a week in there.

Then we move on to the bathroom. The shower head was covered in rust. It looked like it was pulled from a junkyard and put into use at the hotel. This caused the water pressure to be so high it felt like standing in a power washer. The towels we were given literally smelled so strong of smoke it made us sick to use them. We went to ask for more, they acted like the towels were coming from their own personal closet. I also asked for some extra pillows and blankets and they refused saying that they don't have any extras.

The next morning when we went back to ask for more towels again this time we were told that they couldn't access them because the cleaning service wasn't there yet. Which was a lie given that the linen closet is right behind the desk and I saw them go into multiple times that weekend. To sum it up this was the worst hotel experience any of us have ever had. DO NOT STAY HERE!

The front desk person was very nice, but the facility was abysmal. The first non-smoking room I tried smelled strongly of smoke and something else I couldn't identify. The second smelled of smoke, but not as intensely, but the other smell was present too. The third wasn't as bad, but still worse than any room I've ever stayed in. If it hadn't been so late, I would have gone to another motel, even if it was twice as expensive.

The three rooms were in different parts of the hotel, but the rank smell was the same. They were all on the first floor. It's possible the smell was due to water damage. It definitely wasn't a cleaning product or anything like that.

Room Tip: If you must stay here, try a second floor room -- they might smell less.

Motel 6 off i65 in Lafayette is an okay hotel. Nothing fancy but the price for the area is terrible. Because of Purdue university it is really pricey. Room was clean and comfy bed. Really all you van ask for I guess. But for 80 bucks should have at least gotten full breakfast.

I was traveling in a snow storm and was thankful to find this motel 6 when I pulled over. I was very pleasantly surprised at the friendly and accommodating staff who took the time to make sure I was comfortable. This was the nicest Motel 6 that I have been to as it was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and the room smelled very good! Compliments to the manager!

Booked our room on the phone and were quoted a price of $62 per night. Arrived at the hotel and was told the room was $105 plus taxes. I was basically called a liar by the manager that I couldn't possibly have been quoted a price of $62. Also if you stay here they don't provide shampoo or Kleenex.
