Motel 6 Cedar Rapids
Ranked #30 of 36 Hotels in Cedar Rapids
Reviewed 8 July 2012

Cheap, average, a bit smelly (nonsmoking room had leftover smoking smell), updated, but not terribly well. Staff good. Largish Motel 6, parking lot in the middle is busy 24/7, and called the front desk at 3am when two gentlemen (or thereabouts) were working their way up to a fight outside our room. The night desk woman shooed them off effectively, wow.

The cooling was not very effective, floor-wall unit that stratified, and would only keep a nice temperature while the fan was running. Of course, the fan stopped when the thermostat shut it off, and the ceiling to floor temperature difference was rather unpleasant.

The Perkins across the street offers 10% discount if you show your room key.

Workable, ok, nothing special, nothing too awful, either.

Its a Motel 6. It's exactly what you would expect of a Motel 6.

Its been renovated and is pleasant enough and the bed was surprisingly comfortable and firm.

I didn't appreciate workers doing renovation work early in the morning though.

Plenty of fast food options around.

Front desk staff was friendly.

Price is good but you get what you pay for. If your expectations are reasonable you will have a good stay.

WI-FI was free but slow.

Rooms Clean. Nothing fancy.

Low Water Pressure.

Easy access to freeway.

Walking distance to restaurants, both sit-down and fast food.

Staff pleasant but overwhelmed (the weekend we were there they were booked 100%).

Complimentary coffee for breakfast.

"Non-smoking" rooms were smokey.

I live in California. I have stayed at this hotel four times. It is Motel 6 which means bargain price, clean rooms, free parking, and very customer friendly cancellation policy.

Perfect location for traveling to Iowa City for Hawkeye football game. It is 22 miles from Iowa City, and about five miles from the Cedar Rapids Airport. On football weekends, all hotels in Iowa City are completely booked up at very inflated prices. This hotel does not raise its prices for Hawkeye football weekends. There are about five restaurants within walking distance. But remember -- this is Motel 6. It is not the Waldorf Astoria.

Room Tip: Book online well in advance.

I would still recommend this place to a friend because it is close to the highway (though it is in a cluster with about 12 other hotels), and is basically clean and cheap. The bed was clean, the mattress decently comfortable, and the room air worked. The WiFi costs extra, but you can get a good signal from a nearby hotel. It's fairly quiet despite the density of traffic around it. Cedar Rapids itself is a dump, but the hotel serves it's basic purpose, and it was the cheapest there. I only stayed here because I was too tired to drive further. Next time I would just stop in Iowa City or press on to Waterloo.

This was one of the better Motel 6 that I've ever stayed at. They have enough yard to walk the dogs, and the road that they're on has additional grassy areas so it was nice for the dogs. The front desk staff was very welcoming and friendly. The room was quiet (at least I never woke up to any noises). After bad experiences with other Motel 6s I just had to write a GOOD review about this one.

The "No Smoking" Room smelt like we had been smoking in there for a week, my clothes were all smelly the next morning. The rooms were not clean, the staff was indifferent. I would qualify this as a 2 Star motel at best. This has been the worst Motel 6 I have ever been to, From this experience I will never go to another motel 6.
