“nice for a night. helpful night staff.”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

We stayed one night and it just happened to be a night with a huge sand storm. Sand was coming in our room around the windows and the air conditioner. I went to the desk and asked for another room and they did move us across the hall. It was better but we still had a little sand. They lost power for about 3 hours. I couldn't get my work done on the computer so we just went to bed. I know they con't control the weather but I thought they would offer some money back for compensation but they did not. All in all it was a nice place to stay for the price.

For a Motel 6, I feel that this motel pretty nice. The size of the room was adequate, and they offered Free Wireless internet (many Motel 6 properties charge extra for internet). What makes this property nice is that there are two doors in each room, one on the outside wall so you can go out to your car, as well as one on the other side of the room that leads to the inside corridor leading to the lobby. One problem I had is that the phone in the room did not work, when I tried to call the front desk to request a wake-up call. I went to the desk, and the clerk explained that they had had trouble with the phone in that particular room, but were able to set a wake-up call, which I did receive in the morning. However, (I'm guessing because I had the issue the night before), an employee came and knocked on my door shortly after the time I requested for a wake-up call, just to make sure.

Wanted a cheap hotel on the way back from Colorado. Pulled in late at night with my mother and my two small children just for a place to sleep. I was not expecting much, but it was end of July and the A/C running loud and full blast never cooled the room below 85 degrees. It was miserable. When I called the front desk, they wouldn't even help me or discount my room. Woldnt recommend this place. When I was checking out the next morning and complaining again, another couple was complaining about their room and A/C as well.

Pros: cost, location

Cons: Not well maintained. Shower faucet was broke extremely cold or scaulding hot water, safety latch on door broke, A/C unit rattles all night, plus the unit itself was cock-eyed showing a large gap of sunlight around the box and vents filled with dirt. The room was filthy..... cig burns in bedding and bad stains on the floor, plastic lining around mattress ripped, and the toilet ran off and on all night. Luck for us, it was located in Tornado alley, so at least we had the white-noise of wind / storms to drowned out most of the problems....... mostly coming from the gap around the A/C unit. do yourself a favor and either keep driving, or pay a little more and get a good night sleep and a good shower. otherwise...... just sleep in the car.... it's cheaper, and more comfortable.

Nothing special good or bad about this Motel 6 in Colby, like many other Motel 6's it is very no frills, you get a bed, a tv and a bathroom and thats about it. They do have free wifi but there is no pool. If you have stayed at Motel 6's before and generally like them you won't have any problems with this hotel.

Reviewed 10 February 2011

My first negative reaction was upon opening the door, or rather, trying to. The handle moved in the opposite direction you would expect. Not bad in itself, but other people must've had violent reactions to it, because the handle was loose and the whole unit looked like the door had been kicked in with lock replaced. But it still opened, and it locked.

The box spring had been sliced with some kind of knife. The phone was dirty and barely worked; basically it should have been replaced. The walls were thin so that I could hear lots of sound from neighbors even though they weren't doing anything particularly loud.

The room itself was clean (other than the phone), and it included a small fridge and microwave. My impression was that, like with other budget motels, some of the customers think they are entitled to steal or destroy just because they paid for a night in the room. While this probably happens with expensive motels also, they can better afford to replace the damaged items.

I wish I had checked the other lodging in town, of which there are several, but I was too tired that night. While the low price is very reasonable and the bed was fine, the noise from normal motel activities was too loud through those thin walls.
