I have stayed in many, many Motel 6's on the west coast. I like them because of price and pet friendliness. Some properties are nearly new, and some are old and worn. Some can be on the dirty side. I normally rate them from a two to 4 and the occasional 5. For the money, you usually get a great experience.
This Motel 6 in Sparks, however, had many strikes against it. It was old and worn, and then dirty on top of that (garbage under the bed). The front desk service was very poor (the person working it looked worn, tired and dirty, too). There were two people getting rooms before me and one was definitely homeless and possibly drug involved.
Looking at many of the other people staying there, I got the feeling that it must be the sleeze motel of the area. I'm pretty tolerant of people and their differences, but I get nervous when I start sensing a possible high crime rate. I did not feel safe in the Sparks Motel 6.
My mother had advised me against staying there, because she and my Dad did, way back in the 90's and this was their experience. I thought maybe things had improved or that she was over-reacting. Next time, I'll listen to Mom.
