“Long stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

We stayed at the hotel for 17 days and while it is not the ritz it is comfortable and as the saying goes you get what you pay for. Instead of the accomodation taking up a huge chunk of our holiday money it was very cheap and in the end we did not spend a lot of time in the room anyway. All in all if you are looking at staying for a long stretch in Cedar Rapids I would recommend this hotel as a great budget hotel. We will be going back for sure.

You get what you pay for I suppose! Only $43.99 for 2 beds and 2 people in summer. The price is good, but the rooms definitely are not.

The lady at check in was friendly, got us our keys in no time.

Walked into the room and I slipped on the wet floor. The fridge wasn't working and had defrosted all over the floor.. Pulled the fridge and dresser out and found a bunch of trash, dirt and worst of all a dirty used condom. Obviously had not been cleaned behind there in weeks.

Called down to the office and the manager came to our room. She was very professional about the ordeal. Extremely apologetic and offered to comp our room. The housekeeper cleaned behind the furniture and mopped the floor. Got very good service from all the staff. Very friendly.

The beds were comfortable and the bedding was clean. The room was very basic, it kinda echoed it was so bare. Just an old 20 inch TV, with very few channels. I hated the hard wood chairs! So uncomfortable!!!!

Not all the rooms have a fridge and microwave, so best to request them upon checking in or making the reservation online.

The bathroom was cleanish, but the floors really need to be deep cleaned. Throughout the room really. There was dog hair by my bed from the last guests. Just dusty and sticky in places.

WiFi is $3 extra and really isn't that fast. Ok for one night.

Pet friendly with no fee.

Overall I really can't complain. The manager took care of the issue and the price of this place cannot be beaten! It's ok for one night on the road. Just bring your flip flops or slippers!!!

Because of the friendly staff, I would return if I were through the area again. If you want something really comfortable and better quality, then maybe check another motel in the area. There are lots to choose from. This is great if you are on a budget , traveling with pets and only staying one night.

The bed and bath were clean but the floor was filthy. Black bottom to white socks one trip across the floor. Really like that there is no carpet but would like to have had a clean floor. Had to take dirty towels to staff to get clean towels. No one cleaned the room in the 3 days I was there. Fights in adjoining room. Men making rude comments as you tried to enter your area. Loud arguments in the middle of the night.

The furnishings in our room were surprisingly nice for a Motel 6, but the faux wood floors (no carpet) are FILTHY. Guessing the floor has not been scrubbed since it was installed. Went to wipe up a spill on the floor using a Clorox wipe, after two swipes the wipe was black, it was disgusting. Looked under the bed, almost vomited - gross. Hello Motel staff: I DARE you to go into that room, take off your shoes & socks off and walk around - I dare you! Felt like going to Walmart to buy mop, bucket, broom but I tied wash cloths and hand towels around my feet instead.

The ceramic bathroom floor was also dirty but not as disgusting as the faux wood floor. Bring flip flops if you want a shower. I didn't go into the shower, it was too dirty so I scrubbed up at the sink instead.

The bed was comfortable enough, AC worked well and we had a fridge & microwave. Room was quiet while AC or fan was running. Dog was allowed to stay for free.

Hotel does not provide tissues or Do Not Disturb sign. One bar of soap, no shampoo. Okay towels. Crappy TV, supposed to have 9 channels, only 5 were working. No TV channel guide in room.

Neighborhood could be sketchy, appears to be a lot of transient folks hanging around. Talked to an elderly gent at gas station across the street this morning, someone had stolen all of the gasoline from his dual-tank van overnight.

Super Walmart: Turn left on 33rd, 2.5 miles on right
Super Target: Turn left on 33rd, 2.5 miles on left
Awesome HyVee grocery store: Turn right on 33rd, Left on J, Right on Wilson, store on left
Perkins on parking lot is closed for renovations

Won't be back, sorry. Very young, sweet girl working at front desk. She struggled to get us checked in, seems very inexperienced. Not sure I would trust her judgment if something serious were to go wrong at the hotel, would she know what to do?? No security cameras or monitors, but in fairness to Motel 6, none of the other hotels in the area had cameras either.

Every hotel chain that you have ever heard of is on the same street as this hotel (33rd). If your budget permits, consider staying elsewhere: Holiday Inn Express next door down is beautiful, I saw only the lobby, pool & breakfast room but the property is in immaculate condition and they are participating in the whole scent branding thing - the lobby smells wonderful. Has fireplace & nice sofas and chairs, awesome TVs and very big, nice, sunny breakfast room. Reminder: talking about the Holiday Inn Express, NOT motel 6.

Room Tip: Don't pay $2.99 for internet service - there are plenty of sigs

This is the worst place I have ever stayed in and that includes the tents I slept in when on field excersis! There is food left in the fridge, dirt under the bed, I was looking for a remote for the tv that only 6 of the channels worked. I'm heading for a rest stop or truck stop!!!

I stayed here in March 2013 for somewhat of an emergency. The checkin process was easy and the staff was great. They informed me that the rooms had recently been renovated and I remember thinking..."yea right...it's still a Motel 6 - I am ready to sleep". Once I got into the room, I was amazed at the room. I could still somewhat tell it was an older property from the outside but once inside it was a modern-styled paradise.....at MOTEL 6!! I looked online and other properties in this chain have had this renovation. Not sure who was in charge of all of that but they deserve a bonus. The room was beautiful with a modern look. The only negative thing I experienced was that the laminate floor cleaner they used was strong smelling. Change that and it would be 6 stars out of 5. For my visit, I give it a 5 because of the staff and the new design.

Remember that it is Motel 6 people, no thrills, no frills, just a good clean place to sleep. The office help (Cheryl) was very nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and quite. Our room had a King sized bed and a small table and chairs, TV and dresser. There is no Fridge or Microwave, or Hairdryer, but We did not need those things. It is easy to find off of the interstate and near Perkins (less than a block and easy to walk to) and Burger King and Casey's General Store.
