“I'm never going back!!!”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

The room was filthy, the toilet had feces on it and it didn't flush,the tub had dirt and soapscum, the sheets, blankets and bedspread, full of hair and stains, blood on the edge of the bed and carpet the internet barely works at night, and there are stoned hookers that wander around all day. Never again!!!

My family and I were on a budget so we decided to stay at the Motel 6 and it was actually nice. The woman who checked me in was very helpful. The pool was a bit small but it worked out well for my children.

The worse placed we have stayed on our trip so far. Half the lights in the room didn't work or even had light bulbs. Only one set of towels and no little shampoo/ conditioner (collect them for our kids). Tissue box was empty, toilet seat was a differant color then toilet and the bathroom door you had to lift and wrestle with to get it to close. If we weren't so tired from driving we would have gone to a different hotel. Never showeres and checked out in the am so fast.

We stayed in this motel in July. The woman at the desk said that they would not take any checks. Usually, in this case I ask them to phone the manager and he always says traveller's checks are OK. In this case he said no. This is the first time this has ever happened at a Motel 6. I use travel checks because if I use my Canadian credit card they skim off an extra commission to convert from US dollars to Canadian dollars so this always bugs me. The motel was also next to the freeway and our room was missing some furniture. They had some cookies in the morning which was nice tho.

There are lots of Motel 6's throughout the USA, as there are a wide variety of 'users'. This one is better than average, locally managed and not 'corporate' - so the wi-fi is 'free'. Yes, our access was poor to non-existent at the start, but the helpful receptionist re-set 'our' modem, apparently there are six on the property, then it was fine.Our room was clean and more than acceptable, enjoyed a good nights sleep.

We stayed here in late December 2012. All was okay and was what we expected. The room was clean but some of the fixtures are becoming dated.

We had a very difficult time with the Internet. Also, the room next to us seemed to have people coming and going all night long.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the highway noise.

Nice, affordable and great service! Close to home and always stay there for a little getaway. My husband and I randomly get a room locally instead of vacationing. Since our budget is low, we get a room for a weekend just to get away from home.
Thanks for everything.

Room Tip: I always get there jacuzzie room just to relax. Nice and affordable!
