First, the good. The door had a lock. I could park right by my door.
Maybe I got put in the building that needed remodeling, but this was just a bad experience. I arrived about 9 pm, and had to talk to the clerk through the bulletproof glass, sliding pens and paperwork through the little slot. I can understand that the hotel management wants their clerks to feel safe, but she acted like I was a bank robber (I'm not.).
A previous reviewer said the room should have been remodeled 5 years ago. Maybe... maybe longer. It needed a fresh coat of primer and paint, and new furniture and a new bedspread. The remote to the tv had popped open, revealing the batteries. I thought that was odd, until I found that to work the remote, you had to hold the batteries in, and aim it at the tv. If you wanted to go ahead one channel, you held the batteries and aimed it at the tv for about a second. If you wanted to cruise through a couple of channels, you aimed the remote for a bit longer. Buuuut, if you went too far, you had to spin all the way through all the numbers again--no pressing 7 and going directly to channel 7, and no back button. It was an entertaining game, since I couldn't really explore the channels to see what was on. I didn't want to call the desk and ask about a new remote, as the lady was already convinced I was about to attack her, or rob her, or something. Since the bedspread looked pretty gross, I sat at the desk, which looked like an old library carrel, complete with a weird outlet strip. The bathroom needed either deep cleaning or paint, or both. In all, this was depressing and a little scary. This was way below the usual standards of a Motel 6. More like a Motel 2 or 3.
