Reviewed 5 August 2014

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was reasonably clean but was missing what I considered to be basic amenities: shampoo and a coffee maker. For a similar price I have had better experiences with other motels.

for once, I did not check the reviews before I booked this hotel since we were just looking for a one night stay after our plane arrived after midnight. Big mistake. We were put on the 4th floor - a smoking floor - because they do not offer you a choice. The hallway was filthy - it looked like it had not been vacuumed in weeks. The smell of cigarettes was appalling in the hallway though luckily our room did not smell quite so bad. Also, the room itself was fairly clean though very shabby. The only good thing about the hotel is that the bed was comfortable. The hotel isn't even all that close the airport - which is really the reason I had booked it. Find another place if you can.

We stayed or 1 night and the room was clean and staff was friendly. When we arrived, there was a strong smell of Chlorine in the hallway. Our room was small but usable for one night. It was perfect for one night or 2 nights and it was cheap.

...and I was told it was non-smoking. I hate the smell of cigarettes and couldn't sleep because of it. When we got there there was only 1 towel for 2 occupants, and the bathroom light was broken.
Disgusting.

Do NOT stay here unless you are literally looking for a place to crash for a few hours and have no sense of smell. I had read the bad reviews, but stupidly thought people were just overreacting. Until I went there myself. It is disgusting. There were hairs in the bathroom, hairs on the floor, the room was "non-smoking" but reeked of smoke, and the whole place just seemed eerie (The eeriness was not helped by the fact that Travelodge next door was completely deserted and that the place in general resembles a prison.) I am not a picky traveler, and I have never done this before, but we actually took a look at our room and left, demanded our money back, and went to the Hampton Inn instead. Worth every dollar in extra expense. The girl at the front desk was helpful, though. Believe the reviews people: DO NOT stay here if you value cleanliness of any kind!

As we pulled in, the first thing we saw were women of "questionable employment" lingering by the entrance next to a police car. That should have been our first clue, but due to the low price we continued to the check-in. The lobby was very industrial looking, almost prison-like, with low ceilings and boxes lying around. The tractor trailer pulled up by the front certainly didn't help. The man at the check-in was nice, but after explaining to us that our reserved room was unclean (despite it being nearly 2:00), and that there would be some racket due to people having to be escorted out by police, we made the decision to cancel our reservation. The most fortunate part of this 5-minute stay was being fully refunded.

This was a typical Motel 6. It was clean with some of the cheapest rates in town. The hotel is very close to shopping areas and restaurants, all within walking distance. There is ample parking and the staff at the front desk was very helpful. I had a handicap accessible room so it lacked any carpeting, but had an enormous bathroom. The room had new fixtures throughout (toilet, sink & AC) and a large flat screen TV. Laundry machines were available. The rooms seemed well insulated as it was a busy weekend and I did not hear any traffic in the halls or from neighboring rooms. It is basic lodging at a budget-friendly price; I would stay here again.
