“Walls too thin”
3 of 5 bubbles 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.

My husband and I stopped in Colby and searched for a room with a good price. We ended up staying at the Motel 6 and were very satisfied with our stay. The beds were comfortable and rooms were very clean. Everyone was very friendly, I recommend this motel to anyone passing through!

I was double-charged. I paid in cash for the room on check-in. 2 days later my credit card was charged an additional amount of $62.32.

I called the hotel at 785-462-8201 - reception could not help and gave me the number of the hotel manager (Sonny Patel) 404-819-7833. Called him a couple of times for investigation and resolution of the problem. He promised to get back to me and never did.

Terrible customer service. Additionally, the ceiling in the room we stayed in (#121) was leaking at night during rain. Water just comes through on the carpet.

Would not recommend staying in this place.

We stopped at the Colby KS motel because we were traveling from Missouri & Colorado and were exhausted. We did not have reservations. My husband went into the lobby and requested a room on the 1st floor as I am in a wheelchair. The receptionist was very pleasant. However, the room was a nightmare. When we opened the door, the room had a very powerful musty/mold smell. We figured it was due to the fact that the air conditioner had been running all day. However, once we removed our shoes, we discovered the issue. The carpet from the bathroom into the bedroom was completed soaked. On top of that, there were obvious stains all over the floor, there were dead bugs all over the place, and the toilet was not secured to the floor. Being in a wheelchair, I was not able to use the toilet without fear that it would fall over and I would get injured further. My husband attempted to take a shower and discovered that the sink and bathtub had not been clearned; there was hair everywhere. This room also has other issues: the light is falling out of the ceiling, the air conditioner thermostat is broken and ran all night, the floor tiles in the bathroom are broken and have had grout smeared all over the door and walls, and the door does not shut securly. This room is barely wheelchair accessible has my husband had a very difficult time getting me into the room. When we complained, we simply were told "We have wheat bugs and there is nothing we can do." All of the other issues seemed to not matter. If we had not been so exhausted and I was not in a wheelchair, we would have left and found another hotel. Unfortunately, we will never return to another Motel 6 in the future.

We stayed one night at this hotel and were very impressed! It was very nice, clean and offered a wonderful hot coffe. The rooms have a living area and bredroom and the bathroom was big and roomy. It was also very quiet and they allow pets. We plan on staying there again the next time we are through colby

We were only passing through on our way to Yellowstone and checked in at around 11 pm. We booked 2 rooms using Roomsaver coupons for about $45 each. The hotel looks fairly new compared to the others in the area. The rooms were good - adequate lighting, TV, etc., and there were no bugs. Also, the lady at the desk was very nice. Overall, I would say it is one the the nicer, better kept up Motel 6's.
