BY FAR the most disgusting, completely nerve wracking stay in any hotel ever. DO NOT STAY IN THIS HOTEL! It is a transient hotel. Listen to the reviews that you read about this hotel and please review the actual pictures that I have taken to show the hotel state. These pictures were taken of room #422 that my husband and I were in. After talking to Motel 6 client relations and filing a report (report #1030844), Motel 6 is going to look into the situation, as this Motel 6 is privately owned - which many are now. It was a business trip and unfortunately we wanted to leave and receive a refund, but every other hotel in the area was booked and we were trapped. It was either sleep in this disgusting hole or sleep in our car. We were just glad to wake up alive. My husband was harassed/asked twice by the same "guest"/transient if he could "bum them a cigarette" when going to get ice and he wasn't even smoking. There is suspicious loitering and most likely a fair amount of domestic disturbances and drug involvement going on as the police are acquainted very well with coming there to deal with situations. We had to call the police because our neighbor (a transient living in the hotel) had the bass blaring at 1:00 am and the front desk girl was obviously too scared to do anything about it. When talking to the police, they were very familiar with the hotel and said they would take care of it, and they did. They arrived on the spot a mere 10 minutes after our phoning them. The only reason we rested easy after calling the police was the luck of having another seeming normal motel guest on the other side of the room, so we knew that we couldn't get fingered as the reporting party. There are grills outside of the doors, chairs for late night relaxing/loitering with friends, Meijer grocery carts for them to use to easily walk to the local Meijer and bring their groceries back home. We witnessed a total of 4 grocery carts right out in the open (see pictures). The Meijer is walking distance from the Motel. What more can I say except if you stay there, expect what we had which was a completely UNCLEAN room that probably hasn't seen a cleaning in a decade. And, why would the rooms not be clean you ask?, because unless you ask for your room to be cleaned, they will not enter the rooms because of too many false theft claims by hotel "guests"/transients - not surprising. There was no operational fire alarm - we found it broken off and behind the TV (see pictures), so if there was a fire that one of the drunken, drugged up transients should easily happen to cause, you might find yourself waking up in a room full of smoke and find the room next to you going up in flames. I had to clean the toilet just to use it, as it was covered with fecal matter (see pictures). There was not a single square foot of the room that didn't have a crack, a stain, cigarette burn, dirt, or mold. This Motel is a turd upon society. And, when you think it doesn't get worse, you walk out of your room in the morning to find pink/red puke on the pavement...this is one Motel 6 that you don't want them to leave the light on for you.
